I should have found a way of posting this earlier but time and all that did not permit me.

It’s 29th November, the month is almost gone, I don’t have much to say to you but *coughs…, I’ll say what I can.

Clinks glass with fork^^

To Ife...

Thanks for being my big brother, for being there for me when I needed you, for calling me when you just wanna say hi or check up on me. For all the birthdays you always remember, for your love because that’s what your name means.

You are just the bestest big brother if there’s any word like that. I know we fight sometimes and you can like to be diplomatic when I don’t want to be and find it hard to be.

But I guess that’s why you’re big brother. 🙂

For your encouragement, for your kind words, for reading my stories and for those times when we used to grow up and how you tried to be protective over me.

For trying as much as possible to play ten ten with me while I was growing up, for teaching me how to play..

my mother told me, if i was good…, that she would buy me, a rubber dolly”

Don’t blame him o.., I grew up among boys so I didn’t really have much girls to play with in our house at the time 🙂

Here’s to our laughter together, your cute** laughter, so cute and sweet compared to mine, sometimes I wonder why I laugh silly…

Here’s to how much you’ve contributed to my life. For being one of those numbers I can call in my family.

Gosh, you are so patient with me… 🙂 If you can go shopping with me, then BRAVO!!!

I Love you very much!

 

To Shola

I was an IT student when I met you at the hospital where I was to do my 6 months training, and you were really a calm pharmacist. I think you and my brother have that calm thing in common. It’s probably why you two were born on the same day 🙂

You were like a padi to me and even till now, you make me laugh when you call me chocolatey (inserts name) cos my complexion is far from that. I guess my story has brought a smile to your face.

I know the age distance between us is quite much but you didn’t even treat me like a junior colleague when we met. We were always gisting, laughing and talking while we had to work together under some particular environment.

You are the only one out of all the internees I still rap with.

The power of friendship.

Thanks for being my friend till date.

God bless you.

I Love you.

And may God direct your path throughout in life.

 

To Valerie

You said you didn’t want this but I just had to write you something.

Your birthday was on 26th but you deserve something from me.

You are cute, you’re nice, you’re funny and you’ve been a blessing.

You make me laugh and wonder what planet you hail from. Alas it’s EARTH!!

You are godly, you are wise and you are a good friend.

I love you…

 

To these 3 people, I wish a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY, LONG LIFE and PROSPERITY!!!

HIP HIP HIP!!!

HURRAY!!!!

I hope you had fun.

God bless November because of you guys…

And as for the other novembers out there, here’s a hug, a kiss and my prayers that may you live to fulfill God’s will for your life. Today and always.

Much Love. xo!

 

Dear July, Just before leaving…..

julyy

I was born on the last day of July. People have asked me why i didn’t just enter august rather than just stick with the July month…

Wonderful month 😉

People keep writing lists of what they want from life before another year shows up…

Me i’m here to write all that i’ve learned in life as i’m here to wrap up the month

A shout out to my twinnie, Titi, same day and same year but different mothers, I LOVE YOU

Tomorrow is the beginning of a new year for me, I guess. I look at my age and whoa! I’m getting older?

Infact we all are…

Well not Old-Old but if you were among the peeps doing “aye aye in my post of Kids born in the 80s and early 90s, you’ll understand me better.#wink.

Okies, enough about age rant, like seriously, who wants to start hearing about a chica in her age although almost all the people I’ve encountered keep trying to reduce my age for me due to my babyface and stature. Someone tells me it’s a good thing but I’m like being called a teenager or

“hello you, are you about to write jamb? Or “are you not going back to school?’’ is not funny and this keeps getting me freaked out. And then my big brother couples it by acting protective….I have told that boy to stop spoiling market for me and let people stop insinuating he’s my boyfriend of some sort.

#adjusts mike and gives grateful speech^^

In all my years on earth, things haven’t really been a bed of roses and sometimes I’ve done things or said things that I wish I could take back but I’m learning.

I learn every day.

I still love adding a pinch of salt to my Oats and I think it’d taste awkward if I don’t.

I might not be a neat freak, but I like my things being the way I left them. Well, I’ve lived long enough to know that human beings such as friends, family and freak shows are not gonna make that happen.

I’ve learned to see God in everything and try being positive about life.

I’m still learning not to judge. This proves a little hard sometimes with my job as a pharmacist as people come telling you their stories of how they did this and that and how you could help out..sigh**

Sometimes I wish I could just hand them a pamphlet

I’ve learned to appreciate the rich smell of coffee, tea bags, clothes that get dry after washing with a good soap and nature in the morning. Don’t blame me, I have to wake as early as 4am sometimes to leave for work so the smell of nature is unavoidable..,,

I’ve learned to watch Bill Cosby and fall in love with that one show that can never be replaced. Family bonding is precious and important.

I’ve learned that somethings don’t always work out on the ways we plan them but we just have to pray and keep believing God for everything. After all he was right there before your ancestors even thought of existing.

I’ve learned not to trust anyone. Sometimes you can’t even trust yourself. Oh, but I trust God. It’s pretty annoying because you’re a truthful person, people start assuming you’ll be gullible as well…, like seriously?!!! Well I fell for it long ago but that’s what we call Lessons learned.

I’ve learned to live, laugh and love. Don’t get jealous, just be happy and pray for your own to come since Baba God is in the neighborhood.

I’ve learned to laugh at myself. Sometimes it’s good but sometimes, you could freak people out so just stop it after 10seconds.

I’ve learned to ignore annoying and irritating folks rather than punch them in the face.

I’ve learned that I can’t always please everybody.

I’ve learned to reserve my eye cells for much more important things rather than gossip and unwarranted rumors or shows that have no business with what I want in life. Maybe growing up with boys has a lot of impact to play on the type of movies I like e.g Lord of the Rings. (I mean it’s hard not to imagine yourself with a sword or arrow when you think of that movie),

the kind of shows I CANNOT watch e.g Kim K’s Timeline or whatever it is they call it. am I being too boyish? I dunno but the last time I checked, that show wasn’t meant to determine my feminine side. #No pun intended

I’ve learned to make lists…and this list involves seeing Dolphins and tap dancing before I die or before the world comes to an end.

The movies these days…sigh** it’s either the white house is coming down or the apocalypse is coming. Or we’re into some sort of future that is located in America…

Don’t forget the aliens too. Oh where’s Speilberg and Tom Cruise by the way?

Okay, enough of me!..Happy birthday to me! Its 31st of July babay!!! Wish myself Long life and prosperity.

In all things, i give thanks!

Thanks for all the birthday wishes on Monday and the ones that will be coming in advance!

Much love.., xo!

Christianity and Godliness…Are they two different things?

8 Comments

Wooden Cross

I’ve been persecuted for my faith no doubt, in fact you hear people mocking Christians everyday and blasphemous words uttered against our beliefs and what we live and die for daily.

The word or tag “Christianity has even gone as far as being dragged in the mud with the term ‘born again’ Here and there, you hear things about people defying the term and saying..so-called Christians…’

and he calls himself a Christian o

I know a Christian who married two wives. i know a man who calls himself born again christian and still cheats on his wife. so what is so special about your Christianity sef?

I know a girl who goes to church and sleeps with the choir master et al

I know a lesbian who calls herself a christian and says the rest of us are hypocrites

I know a christian who goes to church on Sundays and yet wears boob tube and makes men fall like crumbs. she tells you to flaunt what you have..

And the list goes on and on about what we are and what we are not and what the world paints us to be.

Sometimes people are even afraid to meet our God because they don’t see anything like him in us forgetting we are also growing.

Some of us take so long growing, some remain babies while some don’t even understand a dime about the Christianity business. As for that aspect of the bible that warns against being a stumbling block for others, they don’t even CARE. they live for themselves and their desires.

And then we make it worse by doing things we’re not meant to do, quoting scriptures to satisfy our lust or quieten our conscience. Judge others when we’re meant to be minding our business while praying for them. carrying the problem that we’re not meant to carry. helping people to spread false rumors. Gossiping about a fellow christian who has fallen  or whom we hardly know.

and you wonder why people hate us so?

the world is meant to hate us, no doubt about that, but the way i see things in this 21st century, the world hates us for different reasons and not for the truth we speak. Not for the love we disperse, neither for the large heart we’ve developed over time.

But because they see hypocrites.

People ask me a question.. ‘what Church do you go to?” after we have a long and exciting chat about God and other stuffs about my life and reality.

i don’t like to answer this question pretty well because it gives a false image of me, and people are not even ready to hear any more because they feel you would be biased when certain questions are raised. further more, they refer to members of such gathering as doing this and doing that, claiming to pray well and serve but they are the worst set of people.

When i tell them, they look at me like “I don’t act like a member. I’m more outgoing, funny, nice and the rest….lool…yea..i know I’m that cool..wink#

and you think one day of giving my life to Christ made me this way? NOT TRUE!! it took years and time..

Just because we’re Christians doesn’t make us immune to temptations and the likes, neither does it mean we should be perfect like Christ was. we grow and learn daily and we get tempted everyday!!

Serious nurture and determination on your side about knowing God and who he really is to you

Just so you know, i’m a child of God. the daughter of a King, no more a servant because a servant knows not what his master is about or what he does, but Jesus made his way clear to me and i’m happy.

Jesus is not a christian’ just so you know. hope i didn’t burst your bubble with that by the way. I got this fact from a book i read sometime in my depression phase- ‘THE SHACK’ Jesus was a man who obeyed the will of his father and was led by the Spirit of God 100%

The word became flesh and dwelt among us and we beheld his glory. So who are we on this earth please tell me. What are we meant to be doing? Live a life of the good and bad and just include God in our life when necessary?

Now thats a shame. Don’t forget the words of Jesus. ‘whosoever is ashamed of me before men, him also i will be ashamed of before my father and the angels.

Now i don’t want that happening to me. Imagine looking into the eyes of God and yelling..”you know me now. I know you. We know each other…, don’t you remember the times we talked and i told people about you?” and God looks at you and he’s like….”i don’t know you.”

the name Christianity came from people who saw the lives of the disciples and how it related so well with Jesus. Why cant people say the same about you? why must you be seen as a black sheep or something not to be associated with God or rather someone who leads people astray.

Try not to lead people astray with your character. You don’t own your soul so be careful how you use it.

Godliness and Christianity shouldn’t be two different things. Rather they should mean the same thing and be that light to show others the way.

We are not perfect. Let the world know that. We are humans like everybody else who has seen the way, the truth and the life and have surrendered our Life to it.

Paul said something which i would paraphrase. ”if this is where it all begins and ends…or rather, all there is to life, then we Christians would be the most miserable in this life.”

We know there’s a place. a living hope. A promise beyond comparison and life afterwards for those who believe in Him and we wait patiently just as our fathers in faith eg Abraham waited.

For those that wait on the Lord shall renew their strength. they shall mount up with wings as eagles. they shall run and not be weary. they shall walk and not faint. -Book of Isaiah.

For those that wonder what and who to follow and how you can live that life that pleases God…The cross.

That’s where the answer to all life’s question is. The CROSS!

N.B: Most of us didn’t sign into Christianity because we had some offer or we got gullible some time in our lives like some people surmise due to ignorance. it’s not like I thought everything was going to get better cos sometimes they don’t although i thought it would. I gave my life to Christ because I knew i needed him. Life without him is empty. You might not know it, but it’s the truth.

Happy Friday lovelies..

Much love…xo

Do all Men Cheat?

5 Comments

i’ve moved my Random Mondays Post to Random Fridays. Enjoy

I hate the above phrase.

Not because i’m a man, but because i’m a woman and it hurts me real bad when people give excuses for men if they’re caught in the act.

it goes with the phrase, “madam, take it easy…, all men cheat.

Or

he’s a man now, do you expect him to hold body for that long’

body no be firewood.”

“a man celebrating and promoting celibacy? haar, that is a serious thing o.”

“he needs a social life and these include drinking, spending his nights at a bar, flirting and romancing other women, grinding his body against strange bodies etc.”

and so i ask myself, what about women?

“were they created to tolerate promiscuous men or spouses?”

“do they have high threshold for temptation than men?”

“do they have to keep believing the phrase that “all men cheat and so don’t get pissed if yours does. at least, he doesn’t throw it in your face.”

ohhh, so it’s when he begins by not only throwing it in your face but rubbing it in and making it stick into your skull that he cheats…, is that when you’ll start revolting?

i read a story about a woman who was complaining and depressed about her celibate boyfriend she caught watching pornography since they had both decided to keep themselves till marriage.

i was very disappointed at some of the comments because it just went on to show the way some humans think.

the comment was something like. ”your bf was just watching porn and you’re unhappy and going ‘errrk’ about it, you’re not glad that he wasn’t shagging a dog.”

and  i was like WTH!!!! seriously?!!! and this commenter was meant to be a sane person oo.

we have to know the people we associate with so that we don’t become ‘mad’ men like them.

Like shagging a dog is an option?!!!!SMH!!

Some people have turned men into dogs and some men haven’t proved to be otherwise. thats why the difference between you and an animal is clear. they act on impulse. you don’t.

God made a distinction between you both. Don’t go about believing you cant do without having SEX because the world has made you think so. it’s the power of the mind. You wont be the first person to keep yourself neither will you be the last. Do keep that at the back of your mind please.

My own say is this..

I don’t believe all men cheat. it’s a false make-believe. it’s a myth. don’t go about putting that in your mind and go into marriage with the opinion that ‘ohh well, is there a man who doesn’t cheat?” because there are many of them who don’t. so many in fact. people who understand the purity and sacredness of marriage and who know the deep mystery behind sex. Men who know that joining yourself to a woman makes you one with her. you become what she is.

If you like don’t believe me, but it’s true whether we like it or not. the more you sleep around, the more you fragment yourself.

the fact that you don’t believe that the tree is green doesn’t make it change it’s color. it’s green whether you like it or not..

so is SEX, the author of SEX, or rather, HE that ordained SEX made it for a man and woman bound by the legal walls of marriage. anything outside that, you put yourself at RISK, a great ONE.

Our present society has made us believe that you can never find a FEW GOOD MEN or rather, ALL MEN CHEAT and so just bear with them, their capacity to act on impulse or rather what they set their eyes upon is very high but i can stand and say that there are men who would still stand for God anywhere, and stand for What they believe in because they have understanding and God is their strength, a very present help in trouble.

SO, do you believe all men Cheat? that Would be a NO for me.

What say you?
