Family time!!

As you may know, travelling to your home country always implies spending quality time with family members, so my vacation wasn’t all about tourism and discovery.

Now that am married, the family has grown from just my extended family to my husband’s extended family. What a joy to know, love and be loved by so many people. That being said, I did my best to visit several family members on both sides. As much as I wanted to spend time with everyone, I was limited by time and people’s availabilities.

Throughout all my visits, a number of them stood out to me, mainly because of the conversations and advice I received. An example is my Husband’s grand mother/ namesake who is so eager to have my husband and I be together (my husband and I were still living separately), as well as one of my uncles who didn’t stop asking the question about when we will start enjoying married life. Now we are finally together.

God is indeed faithful. I equally enjoyed spending time with family because of the good food I ate, although some of it gave me running stomach (Lol).

It’s always fun seeing and spending time with family after a long period of time, so I am grateful to God for the opportunity everyday. I pray to spend some more quality time with them in the future.

Now stay tuned for the next episode of my 25 days adventure.

Officially out of the 5s and into the 6s!

As mentioned in my previous blog post, I hope you enjoy this special series of 10 episodes from my 25 days journey.

This day was exceptional because my Dad turned 60. We celebrated in style at his workplace. After cutting the cake, I gave him a birthday gift on behalf of all his children. You know what? The gift was something he actually wanted but was dissuaded from purchasing by his own boys. You see, my brothers are mischievous, hahaha!

Dad loved his gift and also enjoyed the celebration. It was a great honour to celebrate Dad’s birthday and witness all the good things that the Lord has done in his life. Like it’s sometimes said, 60 is the new 50. My dad is still very young and loves to live and have fun. Also during the celebrations, mum said “he just changed numbers and has moved from 5 to 6…59-60. Hence, more grace, blessing, accomplishments, battles etc. We trust God to continually fortify and strengthen him”.

After cutting the cake, popping champagne and opening his gift, we ate, drank and partied our way through the day.
To conclude, what a blessing this day was, and is forever stamped in my heart. Happy 60th bday Dad. May God continuously bless you always. We all love you!

Now stay tuned for the next episode of my 25 days adventure.

The little things that make a difference!

Let me tell you a short and sweet story today.
On a faithful day, as I was heading to a BBQ, I received a call to go pick up a friend. I agreed and headed to pick up my friend. And guess what? Since I was tired of driving, my friend agreed to take on the wheel until we reached the BBQ’s location. But something extraordinary happened on our way to the BBQ. I received a text message from the host to stop by the grocery store and get some extra drinks and water, to which I agreed hesitatingly.

But you know what? God had planned it otherwise, because our stop at the grocery store was very fruitful.

As we were about to pack the car we ran into an old acquaintance; whom we hadn’t seen in a while. We greeted each other and headed our way. Some seconds later, she comes running towards us again stating that she had locked her car keys in the car. All frustrated and sad about her action, I looked at her and immediately asked my friend to assist her (as I recalled that my friend had previously been in a similar situation and managed to unlock the car). That being said, all 3 of us headed to the grocery store to pick up the items and back to the car. After picking up the items, the car was successfully unlocked. As soon as the car door got unlocked, she stared amazed with a grateful and joyful heart. At that very instant, I exclaimed that our meeting was indeed divinely ordained. Upon hearing that declaration, she brightened up even further and gave us hugs upon hugs.

The encounter made us realize that noting happens in vein, but all things happen for a purpose and are ordained. We laughed about it and thanked the Lord for the divine encounter. Finally, we headed our separate ways and considered the day to be a fruitful one.

What conditions your time?

Time:
They say heals every wound;
They say mends every broken heart;
They say reveals true character(s);
They say tells you who your friends are;
They say makes you weep;
They say makes you happy!

They say:
With time you can move mountains;
With time you can get better;
With time you can love again;
With time you can be hopeful again;
With time you can change;
With time you can be wise!

So:
How do you use your time?
How do you share your time?
How do you let others use your time?
How do you value your time?
How do you prioritize who you give your time to?
How do you ensure that your time is maximized to your advantage?

Time brings about change and change is the only constant we have. Therefore let’s go forth and be smart users of our time.

Officially 27!

I just turned 27 years old, and I am like wow the number sounds weird to my ears. I have to get used to the fact that am 3 years away from the Big 30. Ahahahaha I can’t wait, but for now let me enjoy this season. You know what though? I am grateful to be alive during this season. Its indeed a season set apart for the Lord to do His mighty works. Who knew I will be alive at such a time like this? Despite all the challenges I faced during the past 26 years, I am grateful to say that they have officially shaped me into the beautiful and strong lady that I am today.

My life took another turn before the end of my 26th year on planet earth. I got married and just like some friends said, yesterday I celebrated my first birthday as a married woman (hahahah). Several people wished me a happy birthday, and yes am glad to say that Hubby (a word that I rarely pronounce-mainly because marriage is still surreal) was the first person to wish me happy birthday. I appreciate everyone’s wishes and blessings. I smiled and indeed had a great day.

I am happy to kick-start my 27th year and continuously pray that God favors me each and every day of my life. I live for Christ, so I aim to do and be a better person. Therefore I ask of you, please don’t hesitate to correct me whenever I misbehave or side-track.

I want to be better, I want you to be better too, I want us to be better, so lets work together to make ourselves better.

I pray that we become each others keeper and seek to continuously flourish together, because there is room for everyone at the TOP.

Stay blessed and Thank you for the wishes.

27 and blessed!

Daily perceptions

It’s a new year. The month of January is almost over and we are about to jump into the second month of the year. Prior to January 31st, I carefully and patiently pondered over this month’s blog post and suddenly thought about a lived experience.

The experience am referring to is the development of resentment and hatred due to misjudgment.

Human beings need to stop preconceived judgement and hatred! As I pondered over this statement, the following questions ran through my mind:

1) How often do we judge people based on what others have said?

2) Why do we use the information gathered from external sources as basis for our judgement and perception of others?

3) How many times have we fallen short in our attitude and interaction with others due to false or negative information received?

4) How often do we back track and say no to gossip or false information?

5) Have we realized that the more we listen to what people have to say about others, the more we develop a feeling of resentment towards those people?

6) Have you made a conscious decision to stop judging others based on what you hear?

As a result, it will be better to get to know people before Judging or negatively perceiving them.

I welcome you to join me in this quest for change and transformation. By changing our associations, we change our perception of others, we change the way we interact and the way we react.

Let’s pursue this with a passion and develop love for all mankind in lieu of resentment, doubt and hatred.

Happy new month!

Oh Life!

I woke up and decided to be better.
But the tears kept making me bitter.

Several days passed and my heart began to yonder.
Friends and family members began to wonder.

I was experiencing distress.
I had become purposeless.

Afterwards I decided to change my perspective.
This change led me to become positive.

I grew to become my original.
I developed and became jovial.

The full package led me to find love.
Then I began to experience truelove.

A love that nutures the passion.
A love that fosters the vision.

Indeed LOVE is beautiful!
