So let the countdowns into 2009 begin...10, 9, 8, 7, 6...but Hold up...

Before we get ready to jump the hurdles into 2009; I have to exclaim that it has absolutely been a “Perfect Holiday” for me...and beyond doubt, an incredible Year.

Wow! 2008 had its Good, some bad...and yet Ugly moments…but against all odds; we can gracefully say/write that we have live to tell the tales of them to all.

So in three (3) day…we’ll be yelling at the top of our voice, “Happy New Year!!!”…and again we’ll begin making those resolutions…Hopefully, this time around we will stay true to them...

So this season, I hold in my arms my “Beautiful One”...knowing He has come that all men & women might be saved...

He comes that we may have a new beginning as the New Year closes in on us all. So to everyone I present the wonderful Gift of Love this season...take it and Let it become part of your life...

I pray that God gives you all the courage to face 2009 will such expectations that at the end of it, you will have the grace to give thanks. And even if you face some storms along the way, I pray God gives you the wisdom to go through them and become champions in the end.

There’s nothing God can’t do...even if you don’t understand what exactly
He is doing...don’t worry in time, He will reveal what He has in store for us all...

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!!!

17th Sunday...The Coming Gift!!!

Song of the week: Adol – Orin

Encouragement Verse:Because of the tender mercy of God,…the rising sun will come to us from heaven to shine on those living in darkness…, to guide our feet into the path of peace.” – Luke 1: 78, 79 (NIV)

Quote of the week:GOD WILL NEVER LEAVE YOU EMPTY. If something is taken away, He will replace it with something better. If He denies your request in certain area, it is because He wishes to give you what is best. He asks you to put something down; it is so you can pick up something greater.” --- Roy Lessin

Yet again, I am graceful to God that I was able to soar through the week to observe another lovely Sunday of blogging…and once more I am able to leave my mark in the BLOGSVILLE world. It is my Seventh Sunday...with only one Sunday remaining, as anticipate the coming gift…reason for this season – Jesus

So after my last post (“Am Expecting Triplets!”), a friend asked me what the deal was with that post…and I told them what I am telling you now, “I don’t have any explanation to make in the interim but by keeping pace with my write-ups, my soul will soon expose its nakedness to everyone…”

Meanwhile I have to put pen to paper about this week. It definitely has been a very hilarious week for this extra-ordinary winner child of GOD
So where do I begin? The best place to start…

Monday, on my way to work, another friend tells me about the drama that played out on CNN between Bush and the ‘Shoe-cide bomber’ as he dodge a Size 10 shoe…I had to watched it for myself on ‘YouTube’ to truly get why it was that funny…and after which I was just ROTFL endlessly…

Then there was Tuesday, “Oh my beloved Tuesday, you who brought the surprise of this week…”

Someone really liked me so much that they thought of me when ‘Apple’ unveiled the new ipod called ‘Ipod Touch’. Yes, I have it right here in my hands…I still can’t believe it but it is so true! When I first tore open the wrapping paper I was like,”it is a lie! It is a lie!! It is a lie!!!” But Òmò, it is a very truth o (excuse my fake Queen’s English)…I really did get the ‘ipod touch’…

Wow! Baba God, You are just too much

Prayer:Please embarrass my friend with plenty blessing…May their pocket never go vacant with Pounds, Dollars and Euro. Amen”

On Wednesday, I had a really late-night (Tuesday) that I almost went late to work on Wednesday morning…but I was saved by a familiar ringtone announcing my friend’s call for our usual ‘Wednesday prayer’… it was then I realized that it was already 5:30am…I jumped out of bed, brushed my teeth, but neglected other duty (you know...) before dashing out of the house like one beautiful (*wink) crazy woman. Shhh! I know what you are thinking…hahahaha

Thursday, I began reading “Love your life” by Victoria Osteen. So far, I have to write that it is great book…and to end my day, I was so upset with the Bus driver that I did not say a single word as he drove us home…just two miles to my place I decided to come down and walk the rest of the distant to clear my head…

Friday, so glad to see the end of another working week…but come Monday again, I will be glad to come to work…abeg I am not a work-alcoholic but I just love the company I work for and my Amazing job…

16th Sunday...Am Expecting Triplets!!!

Song of the week: Wande Coal – Jehovah!

Encouragement Verse:Ask the LORD for rain in the springtime; it is theLORD who makes the storm clouds. He gives showers of rain to men,and plants of the field to everyone.” – Zechariah 10:1(NIV)

Quote of the week:When God is about to do something great, He starts with a difficulty. When He is about to do something truly magnificent, He starts with an impossibility.” --- Armin Gesswein

So it is a ‘Sweet Sixteen’ Sunday for me…and I can feel the development within me.

And In case, I had missed the last memos from the head Office of Heavenly Inc. I definitely got the last one, sent by Angel Gabriel.

Other times, I may have ‘throw the baby out with the bath water’ but it would be different this time around…

I just can’t believe it…I am so excited that such a news as this can’t be kept inside my stomach…I have "Tell it on the mountain"

I have begun to dance for joy to life around me…dancing my blessings into fulfillment…

And with Wande Coal, I sing “Jehovah! Jehovah!! Jehovah!!! I no fit shout, me I love YOU! E pass my moouuuth…Olorun Oba, descend on me!

Have always wanted just twins…but I guess one those prayers (though weak by my own standard) that I said days gone by, definitely rocked Heaven’s gate that I will be receiving accumulated blessings…

Before ko, abeg, how will people know that God has begun to embarrass me with abundance blessings that it is overflows to those around me…?

I hold my tummy as I am aware of the joy moving within me…Each movement, my heart miss a beat…I am just over the moon...

I have waited…Yes, waited (with a capital 'W') like a lot of us have and still are…and I must say that it is definitely is worth the wait…my joy will definitely be complete as each blessing unfolds in the presence of all…
"I'll be making space for my beautiful ones..."

Lord, I will be carrying them to maturity…and I am praying for a safe delivery…

The week of yore

Monday, I was under the weather…

Tuesday, still under the weather but was able to climb a step higher than yesterday's position in regards to my health…
Wednesday, feeling rejuvenate and still was able to have another ‘Power Wednesday’ (Prayers via Mobile) with my friend…
Thursday, I was told by a lady on my way to work that ‘remember that a man will always have a childlike mind, so learn to accept him and don’t try to change him…’ (This is true wise talk…)
Friday, My ‘Eji Owuro’…God is always faithful…

15th Sunday...The Shroud of the Past!!!

Song of the week: Elliot Yamin – One Word

Encouragement Verse:…theLORD longs to be gracious to you; He rises to show you compassion. For theLORD is a God of justice. Blessed are all who wait for him!”
Isaiah 30: 18 (NRSV)

Quote of the week:The human heart, at whatever age, opens only to the heart that opens in return.” --- Maria Edgeworth

Can you believe it??? is myFifteenth Sunday

…WooHoo!!! Heh! I have really done well, I have to write...

If you know where I am coming from then you will understand. Before now, Kemi never finishes a project that she starts past a month but look at me…
gosh! I got to give myself a pat on the back!!!

>>>‘So how have you all been?’

I do believe that there’s someone out there reading this right now. And I hope it has been able to inspire you in any way…???

And if you are able to read me like a book as you read my blog, please be honest with your comment when you leave them…Thanks a lot…

So I will share with you another battle of mine…and that is learning to trust and just be vulnerable… [Thanks to a friend who pointed that out]

I guess I have always known that aspect of my sometimes selfish self but it only pinched me harder when recently I missed a ‘grab-the-bull-by-the-horn’ moment…
That incident took a piece of my heart that every so often I still ponder what could have been…I guess I may never know for now...

But it is just so amazing how a load of past events change your perception about life. They can either make you become withdrawn or outgoing about reaching out when you’ve been burnt. Well, God is our strength...

Anyways, Let me leave you with this thought provoking words below...[Read me next Sunday...16th Sunday!!!]

The Shroud of the Past

Progress encumbered by an unforgiving spirit,
And all attempt to dive into the deep-sea of the future,
Frustrated by its foolishness,
Yet again the death of another soul,
The burial procession makes ready its burial,

Another soul trapped in the ‘Maze of the past’
Comfort is camouflaged in the ‘Rags of the present’,
Swathed by its hollow warmth,
Which only leads into another winter of hatred and bitterness,
And its hideous head of resentment,

Unleash from its clutches, I beg
And cuddle the good news that this season brings,
Hoisting the flag of peace in your heart,

And letting God melt the accumulated snow of hatred away from your heart,
As He floods it with His ocean of love, Amen
