I’m so sorry I’ve not updated in like forever. There are thousands of reasons I could give for that but since I don’t plan to bore you, I’ll skip all that and say….Happy New Year!!!!
Who cares that it’s already mid-February and I’m just saying my new year greetings. Like my mum always says, when you wake up is when it’s morning; it doesn’t matter what time of the day it is. So its my new year and I’m shouting out my greetings to you (you can hear me, right?)
But honestly, i have reasons....genuine reasons for not updating too....and no, i will not give into the temptation of boring you with the reasons. *wink*
In all these, i have realized that procrastination is not just a word or a single event, but a process that is measured in time. Even though, i'm saying i have good reasons for not writing, i also know that at some point i started pushing it till later. Its funny how hours become days and days become weeks and weeks become months....meanwhile all i wanted to do was shift it to a later time (maybe within the same week). But alas!
We all have somethings that we push to the next hour or day or week or month.....and then we wonder how we never got around to doing it.
So I plan to be more consistent this year…I’ll be posting once a week – Sundays and I’m also officially announcing the birth of a new devotional blog where we’ll be sharing and discussing truths from the Word of God - Alien Generations. Please check it out and let's learn from each other as we help each other grow.
Yeah…so I was awarded the famous “stylish and versatile award” by Jaycee and I have to tell you 7 things about myself that you did not know before....and you'd have to wait till my next post to read all about it. I'm sure you'll be so surprised when you find out.
"Good intentions are like crying babies in church...they must be carried out immediately" Don't push it...Just do it!!
I hope you had a great weekend? Well, I did o... and I think I'll just give you a li'l bit of it.
Ok, Saturday was a close friend's introduction (the first start of the marriage process where the family members from either side are introduced to each other and intentions are officially known). It was fun for me especially because i had not been to a Yoruba introduction before. I made sure i took pictures and made notes of some of the things i saw and heard. It was cool sha....
Some of my family came around over the weekend too including my sweet baby niece whom i wrote about here. Its always so nice to have family over...the laughing, the jisting, catching up....it always adds color (whether bright or dull colors...doesn't matter jor).
Anyway in the course of the weekend, i had reason to appreciate God's faithfulness over my life. Truth is, there are still things i have asked God for and not yet seen them physically manifested, yet there are others that i did not have to even talk about and he just gave me (after all, while we're still speaking, he has answered).
I look at my life....and in many ways, i see the fingers of God painting a beautiful picture. Sometimes with light brushes, sometimes with heavier strokes...sometimes with grey colors, other times with fuchsia pink or hot red or lemon green. But every time, i know that even though I cannot see and appreciate the full picture, i can be thankful for each individual stroke (or experience) that is gradually making the picture more stunning.
If you're reading this and wondering "What is happening to me?" "Why is my life in disarray?"...and you can't seem to understand why. Please be encouraged, God is working out something beautiful for you if you'll sit still and trust him to make you into something wonderful. He commanded light and order out of a chaotic, formless and void earth (what could be worse), he can make you beautiful too.
So today, I'm grateful...for a chance at life, for family that is irreplaceable, friends that really care and believe in me, for my own special someone and for you reading...I'm thankful that you stopped by.
Yeah, by the way, also stop at Belinda's, there's a beautiful post there.
Hey Everyone....I'm sooooooo sorry I've not updated in the past....3months?!??! I didn't even think I could ever go so long without blogging. But then again....you never really know what you're capable of until the opportunity presents itself. I have been really busy (I'm sure you're thinking - who hasn't) and I have let some things take the place of others. But i promise not to let this happen again. Interestingly, in the midst of all of these....I never stopped doing my blog rounds.
Now this phrase caught my attention recently...
"Life was much easier simpler when apples and blackberries were just fruits".
I stole the phrase from a friend's facebook status (she stole it from her sister's wall - who knows how many other stealings have been involved here). Anyway, it got me thinking and pondering. These days, everywhere you turn to its one social networking site or the other.... Facebook, Twitter....and all the other ones. I recently heard of Yarn Pad - a certain Naija networking site (yeah, you can check it out). As a result its getting increasingly difficult to relate with people face-to-face. After all you already "poked" them on facebook or "buzzed" their yahoo messenger or "pinged" their BB Messenger. You forget you've not visited any of your friends because you've "seen" them already and because they have posted all their recent pictures and tagged you, you are deceived into thinking you know whats happening with them.
