MercyfulGrace Blog Diaries with ‘Yum Yum’ – Chocolate ..’ by Àrèmúorin ::


Speaking of friends, here are some …’ In particular, chocolate brownie! Welcome to the world of brownie. Once you go brown, you’ll keep coming aroun’. A one love thats ever faithful, true and undeniably, dependable. I lurrve chocolate. Who does not love chocolate. Especially, the nutty one’s with lovely ice cream, dripping on top. Yummy.Okay, maybe – if you are allergic, or lactose intolerant. Might not be the case.
Takes me back to when I first met my buddies. We were joking around, while I took a keen interest in this beauty. One taste of her – you are hooked. You’ll be going back for more. It’s a little guilty pleasure right now. I do go back for more. This was so good that I convinced my friends with me, to take a bite. Predictably, they were sold. As I remember; they ordered afterwards. I have to have you from time to time. Thou, the gym is going to be a little tougher, act to follow afterwards. Still won’t care. I have to have more.  You’re so creamy and guey on the inside. Warm, with a decadent taste of satisfaction, lingering ever, long after.
Amen to that!
When Jenny and I hung out too, this was also one of my fav chocolate desserts with her. Piped hot inside in a sea of chocolate sauce, topped with fresh strawberries. You make up for such indulgence with a healthy plate of salad prior. Who am I kidding. Yum yum …’ A little sweet tooth, don’t harm nobody!  Those were the days. All Hail The Fudge Cake ..’ Too sweet for comfort! lol
Àrèmúorin & Jenny
Amen to that!
Jenny & I -

Who Is a Friend?

“A friend is some one who does not stab you in the back, when people are bitching, or back biting about you, or other people in your company. For, be rest assured, when you leave, they are doing the same about you ..”
God Is Love2 -
Learning to forgive, totally, is a big exercise and curve for me. But, Jesus has not made this exercise an easy one, when he says the Lord’s prayer that way. For to receive – you must give …’
“Father forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those that trespass against us”

How Do You 

Oh dear. The art of letting go. Sounds like a song Mariah wrote. I do love me a bit of, some, Mariah. I stay in Love*. I guess that’s the punch line. If you don’t stay in love you’d loose your mind. I’m talking about, loving myself (oneself), unconditionally. Love is that art your master over time. My friend is love. Not hate! When you surround yourself with people who feel, think, act like you –
God Is Love -
then it becomes a way of life. Given freely, it unburdens totally. I’ve seen many a time, when I’ve tried this and it’s been a total liberation. People are fickle. Some come N’go. Some folks blow like the wind, where ever it blows. It’s like the only thing they know. No roots. No core. No purpose. As long as you remain focussed and locked on loving, love, itself. You’ll be so much happier. You become a mirror – a reflection of what people want to be. That’s how you become more of love, and you’ve probably guessed, what I am going to say next – yes – ‘God Is Love’. As long as you remember Jealousy is the root of hatred – the dot’s connect.

When do You

You know your friends by what they do and not by what they say. My lawyer always told me, if coca-cola told you whats inside it, would you still drink it. I guess the same is for fast foods. I tell you, I watched a program once how sussages were made, and was grossed out, like I’m never eating that stuff again.
My friend is love. Not hate! When you surround yourself with people who act, think, drink, feel like you – sometimes, it could be a combination of these factors that bring you about the sense of security you need to keep nurturing your friends. Folks who back down, due to peer pressure, are weak people. They tend to be followers not leaders. You want leaders like you. People who challenge you. People who inspire you. People who are strong like you. Not people who are weak like you.

Where do You

Kind of have mentioned this earlier in a round about way like a broken record. The first place is in the mirror. If you can’t see them there, then its a long a walk, to freedom. Honestly, until you can behold your own reflection without phase, you aren’t ready to add value to someone else’s life.
The final words of the wise often shape our destiny. Hope this will be piece’s of a long puzzle unfolding over time in your own mind. When children make babies how can they know any better, invariably without fail? There is nothing arguably more worse in life, than to have, friends who don’t tell you the truth …’ You need to run the hell away from those.

Why Do You

Friendship is a beautiful thing. When the basis is lost, it’s devoid of life. A loving friendship is the basis of all relationships. Unfortunately, money can’t buy it. That’s why we must try to find it in all the real and right places. The price of love is freedom, let nobody put a tag on it. When your mind is unchained you would begin to see it. Freedom is free.
Friendships that are based on co-pendency can be good, but also pivotal to a quick spiralling downfall.  Pain, it’ll cause, when you can’t stand on your own two feet. Mercy! But, gain it’ll yield when you do learn to stand on your own two, reinforced by amazing healthy loving friendships around you. Jesus is the Son Of God. As for me, I run to him. He is the rock and mother of all friendships – to me. It’s a whole lot more fun when you have a friend that’s independent of all the creative madness that the joy of bullshit and blackmail can bring.

MercyfulGrace Blog Diaries with ‘Ollie Locke’ – Meeting Ollie Locke :: By Àrèmúorin – Anthony Everest :: ::

It was a night in town – proceeded to see an old friend at a gig. Literally walked past him as he smiled at me walking by. I’ve got this thing, where I pretend not to look at strangers, sometimes – when I’m a little bit apprehensive. You know that look. Ha ah. ah …’ I have a habit of staring too long; and too much, so I try my utter best to keep my cool and dignity in tact – mostly. Funny story really.

with ollie locke & oscar & aremuorin

Saw him first on Made In Chelsea, a few years ago. He resonated like a dream. Thought I was watching myself innately, except for the long hair. I knew inside – that was probably not the only found resonance. A thing I adopted, later – for a summer, and a while. He captured me from the onset and I got hooked, on the program, the story line’s and that poor girl ‘Gabriella’.
Love is a crazy thing – it makes you do some crazy things ..’ MIC is definitely ‘incestous’ to say the least, according to Spencer Mathews – famous line. So, anyway – back to Ollie. For some reason – someone at the time – proceeded to introduce us, as by this time –  he sat next to me at the same table and I was still keeping my cool. That cool! yea.h ..’ I was zoning in my own world trying to figure things out in my own head. Must have been one of those half awake moments.

Ollie, Alexandra Burke, Oscar, Birthday Boy & Àrèmúorin

Later on – when it clicked – I was hysterical, uncontrollably; I’ll never forget. It was one of those profound moments. That dose not often, happen to me. He had to walk up and down in my view – to make me calm down. All the memories of seeing him for the first time – flooded back, frame by frame. I feel embarrassed – slightly now, looking back. OMG! Wao. I later apologised repeatedly – once we settled in to chatting and him showing me his new iPhone  – that had a messaging tech problem – I couldn’t fix :: we became more acquainted.

And – they came like butterflies – Like a Honey to the Bee ..’

As the night ended and those who had work the next day left – we went on to party the night out at Mahiki. I was still glued to my photo’s that I took earlier of everyone in high spirit’s – while he and every one else who came along – went on to drink themselves stupid. And yea, the girls – they came like butterflies. Like honey to the bee. Could easily get accustomed to this. Unfortunately, I don’t drink, nor smoke – so I remained the boring one in the bunch. But it gave me perspective and reasons to celebrate life. Difficult for me for medical reasons – but I tried to blend in for a while before I left for home.
Was going through my photo album this morning and found this picture. With a little help and luck :: you are now reading this and sharing in this memory with me. Isn’t it wonderful when we make the most of life ..’ I’m just saying – ‘Make It Count’ :: Mercy! Most  nights before I sleep – I ask myself – what if tomorrow never comes? Then, I pray like it is. May my soul; God – you keep.
To have seen so many light and shades from evil to kind all wrapped in one. :: I have come through many trials and temptations. Evolved through, fire and rain – pained and gained a whole lot of new meaning to life. Through it all, I stand corrected in Love*. Firmly rooted, grounded in its stead.
Many passing, fancy, pansy thrills, come and go – to taunt you with the pressure of lying down and rolling over in a cut throat showbizy industry, where the commodity of cheap fame, is back stabbing and greedy grabbing. Love has become so endearingly rear. An ever constant quest that would make the weak strong and stronger faint, sometimes. Still, I know who I am.
Until the music and faith dies in me, then will I stop – Singing, Writing, Living, diarising every moment to the fullest – Like I do :: When I see realness, I embrace it with all my heart and soul. I rise to it and take a great good look with detailed spiritual mental notes; for when I remember – should I forget.
Stuck in time that’s not mine …’ I live in “THE MOMENT”. Every breath – every second. Cherishing the gifts given. Wisdom, knowledge, the power of loving & understanding.  You’d be surprised how much hope and dreams can avail some else’s life – to make their existence easier just to make it through another arduous day.
How can people be so self righteous to think, they hold the license to judge other people. Now, if we were to take a microscope to delve into your so called perfect Life; what would we find? Uhm?
‘A Xtain is nothing but a beggar who found the bread who ought to show another beggar where he found the bread.’ – Bishop TD Jakes :: ‘Many people are smiling but they are not genuinely happy’ – Lurin Cato :: ‘Sometimes some people don’t want to see the truth, but that is the truth’ – Àrèmúorin ::
For Believers – Christ is the Hope & Glory for all. God’s love is :: ‘an eternal sunshine’ of Joy! Jesus asks us to come to him – for if we are heavy laden :: he will give us rest :: Nobody comes to the father except through him. That’s the faith of the believer. A Christ-like believer. I don’t know what Ollie believes in, but it’s worth sharing what I believe in. Some people, share material things from cigarettes to, lovers and sorts. Why not Faith.

Redemption by @Aremuorin

Imagine – you had the chance to do it all over again with that one person you may never see or meet again. Would you share that one thing you cherish most above all other things – with that stranger; or that new friend ..’  I would. I’m not talking about cigarettes, clothes, lovers or alcohol. I’m talking about Love*.  God Is Love* and he loves us very much. Even you and I. It’s only a question of faith. ::  Ever since I did, I never looked back on this faith. The party always comes to an end. Not this one.

Shine like you’ve never shone before

When everything else fades, this one truth remains. :: An Unrivalled :: Undivided – Love* :: This eternal life is the Love of God no one can never take away from you (us), forever and ever. The Greatest thing about the Grace of God is that :: this Salvation & Redemption is not an exclusive privilege – its freely given :: AMEN ::
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him, shall not perish; but have eternal life” John 3:16

MercyfulGrace Diaries with Bharti – ‘RIP’.

Bharti Chopra
Thank you for your friendship.

There is nothing more sad, than to loose a friend unexpectedly and untimely, too. I was too shocked to hear the news. You know, when you just never know – that’s exactly when you end up knowing. I don’t know how to feel. It puts life into perspective, realising :: time is money you can never earn back.

Bharri and Anthony Everest.jpg

Lost a dear friend to Breast Cancer :: I am saddened, grieved and upset. Heard about it late. Especially, as her children wanted me at the memorial, to sing. RIP BHARTI. She was beautiful and made me laugh so much, even when I was sick. She was always a big fan of me and my music. I can’t believe she’s gone. Life is short. Make it count. My memories of her are fond. I Need to process this with time. I have been given a portrait of her. It’s on my mantle. Looking at it everyday tells me so much, no one can; indeed. We often take people and life for granted ..’ Not anymore.


Got to know her briefly as someone who was full of life, always had a giggle and a smile. Can’t explain enough how this makes me feel underneath – but knowing you’ve found rest in God – I pray you Rest In His, Eternal Peace! – Amen

Bharti took this picture of Me & Her Husband one evening after calling me to join them for Dinner in Knightsbridge’. ‘Bitter Sweet Memoirs’

Bharti took this picture of Me & Her Husband one evening after calling me to join them for Dinner in Knightsbridge ..’ Bitter Sweet Memoirs’. I remember that night being a little bit embarrassing for me – cuz I kept falling asleep in front of her and guests – towards  the end of the night (Narcoleptic episodes) – but she was so kind to me and very graceful about it ..’ I will always miss and love you girl. You are very, very rear. God Bless You!


Now I understand and have learned a greater lesson than I thought. Just because people are smiling does not mean everything is okay and alright. Cuz she managed to keep this one from me. I had no idea. It figures – every time I complained about my health & challenges – she never said anything, apart from  me singing, being happy and always smiled.

Dear Lord Jesus Mercy!
