Valentine’s Day Notes Ep. 1

(Side note about this picture I saw it on my sisters phone and I instantly loved the picture. I loved these two’s relationship on spiderman painfully awkward at first and then Zendaya in the movie was acting all weird and I was wondering why spiderman even liked her. Anyway this picture feels perfect for today just insert Justin bieber’s song ‘You smile, I smile)

Happy belated Valentine’s Day from your favourite lazy writer.

All my life I’ve always been single on Valentine’s Day except for one time (I’ll get to this). I never really attached much importance to this day. I treat it with great indifference because I hate Valentine’s Day. (I KID). I don’t hate the day and you would know because today they asked us to wear a touch of red to work and I was drenched in RED. I wore a red dress, red earrings, red bag, I even drove a red car, no kidding. The real reason, I treat this day with great indifference is because most times it’s a week day ain’t nobody got time for Valentine’s day and also maybe another reason is ‘cause I’m single. Ha!

2020: The Dawn of A New Decade

Forgive me if the title sounds text bookish, I did try to think up something cute. ‘Instagram blogging’ is so much easier, *gag*, at least you don’t have to think up titles.

I’ve noticed a whole lot of posts on reviews of the past year and decade which gives me an idea to write about that for my first post of the year but on second thoughts I guess I should just put my behind in my past. 🦁

Instead, I’ll move right ahead and wish you my dear Friends a very Happy and prosperous New Year. We made it! I stumbled on Zephaniah 3:17 towards the end of last year which has been a huge encouragement to me and something to hold on to in 2020 and it says: For the Lord your God is living among you. He is a mighty savior. He will take delight in you with gladness. With his love, he will calm all your fears. He will rejoice over you with joyful songs”.

So no matter what, just know the Lord your God is with you, Emmanuel. I am also holding on tenaciously to Jabez’s prayer in 1st Chronicles 4:10 – “Oh, that you would bless me and expand my territory! Please be with me in all that I do, and keep me from all trouble and pain!”

In addition, Habbakuk 2:2 is a reminder to write the vision, not just yammering about it but to just get a pen and paper and put it down.

So, Once again, Happy New Year, Cheers to the new decade.

Love and Light.

Three Devotionals To Keep You Centered During Advent And Christmas

Since I left Children Sunday School and joined the ‘Big’ Church (because that’s what we call the adult Church), I’ve heard the priests say the word ‘Advent’, Gosh, I know I’ve even used the word when writing mails in the office 😂. However, I’ve never really pondered on what the word really means for and to me as a Christian.

Then, there is Christmas.

November • [Journal]

The most wonderful time of the year is here! As far as I can remember, I have always been super excited about the month of December. I love Christmas. It’s my favorite holiday of the year. My best part of Christmas has to be the music. At Church today, the children choir treated us to Christmas carols and even though I was bone tired and wanted to sleep in, I couldn’t imagine missing the program for anything.

October Journal 2019

Life lately.

It’s been a while I did a life update and also wrote for the blog. For a moment there, I got distracted, I had this fleeting thought of just putting the whole blogging shenanigans to an end and focus on more fruitful ventures (after all blogging is dead, right?!).

But I just couldn’t help throwing it all away or disappointing those who ask me about how the blog is coming, those who tell me they love my content and those who have offered helpful tips for the blog. So I am back again, hopefully, tapping away on my trusty, cracked face phone.

Life update!

Here goes…nothing!
