It's a great day! Sure for me here in Lagos,Nigeria, as the years wind to an end and I continue to make progress on my first book publishing project- my debut. Since I am still blogging on the lessons series; I want to share an account from a personal  occurrence in the course of the year 2014

*Lessons from my stolen tablet*

It was an evening, I had planned to attend a faith-based function slated later for the evening.
I was tired but determined to make it to the event, and I was glad I did. It was wonderful and spiritually uplifting though not so good as regards my tablet -it was the last time I saw or used it.
This was because while I prayed and shared shortly from the device at a given opportunity amongst the group of people, there was a scheme to dispossess me of the lovely device. The 'Holy thief' already knew what he was going to do.

I do not know the identity of the Holy thief because though I might know him but I possibly did not know him enough. And even at that, it could be an He or a She that was the thief.
All men slept and the deed was done. It was an all-night event and I had a great time and networked like I usually do. So I did rest my tired head for a couple of hours and alas it was gone.

There was an unbelievable feeling of surprise and voidness at missing my PDA. I was surprised but not disturbed; moved and not bothered.
I was comforted that  I could still have all I wanted back; it was only going to take some time. Time is always a variable.
I thank God for the clouds. I was comforted in the power of information backed up on the cloud and was not moved by the one who has done the basest. Taking another man's possession by any means is not only the opposite of giving,which is living but it's also the basest form of existence-a sure path to extinction of values and otherwise promising potential. This is my first account about the holy thief.
This festive period, wherever you are, you can't be too careful with your gadgets, car or personal belongings.
