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.
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.
Did you read my previous post?
Then you will know that my birthday was coming up. I turned 26 on February 22. Yes I am a year older and loving it already.
Although about two weeks ago I wasn’t sure of what to do to celebrate my birthday, I ended up going for dinner with my girlfriends on my birthday. OMG we had such a good time that they almost chased us out of the restaurant (You get what I mean) LOL. These ladies are indeed a great blessing to my life.
As a special birthday gift, the Lord blessed me with an opened door on my birthday. Yes am very grateful for my birthday gift from Heaven. You know when you have sought and prayed so much about something and you get to the point where you just decide to ‘Let go and let God have HIS way’, then the miracle happens. The wait isn’t always easy but with time I have learned to trust HIM.
I am positive that this new year will be greater than the past 25 years. To conclude my birthday week, a longtime friend of mine took me out for dinner on Friday and we had a great talk about life and the future. I am now ready for new challenges and blessings. Let’s go get it.
A friend of mine sent me this song entitled: Intentional by Travis Greene as a reminder that God has a perfect plan for our lives. It has blessed me so much, so enjoy and be blessed.
Ps: Thank you all for the lovely birthday wishes. May God richly bless you all.
