Happy 2016 everyone! How are you celebrating? Did you go to church or the mosque? If yes why? Are you afraid for your salvation or because you genuinely love God? As for me and hubstar we have been watching Rome the tv series….so we watched two episodes and I fell asleep by 11.40pm.
I have never been good at countdowns etc- I do as the spirit moves me. Lol. I felt a kiss and then i heard fireworks. I woke up very startled – look I worked in and out of war zones in the middle East for 5 or so years and I have remnants of PTSD. I thought we were getting attacked. My husband understands so he tends to calm me. I noticed he kept warning me after that once he heard the swoosh before the bang. Well how is that for attempting a good night’s sleep? I dislike Christmas and New Year in Nigeria for this particular reason – fireworks.
My neighbours are having a party but I am like dj seriously turn your music down kilode? Maybe I am just old sha but I dont know. I feel beyond blessed to see a new year – its a year filled with soo many possibilities and I pray to God that he continues to help me understand his direction for me and understand that delay is never denial and that all things will ultimately work together for the good.
I am not a bible thumper in anyway, neither am I one of those that believes that miracles just happen- he often prepares us for that which he has destined for us. I believe in testimony worthy lives – and that’s what I always ask God for…
Lastly I want to say a big thank you to anyone that has ever opened this blog, left a comment, won a giveaway and spread the word. In the last 3 or so months I have struggled to keep sharing my thoughts (i wont call it writing because I am not a writer- 😅 i never passed literature and I can’t tell you the difference between a sonnet or poem and all that stuff)! This page has kept me somewhat grounded- I am still a flight risk though. I struggle on what to share and what not to share – i have many moments of thinking i have no business sharing my mind and the community has kept me going even on day where the posts read like it was written by an imbecile on hallucinogenics. 😆I am not sure what direction the page will go in as life is coming at me hard and fast in a very awesome way, but one thing I promise is to be sincere and the day I cannot do that is the day I will stop.
On that note what are you doing for the rest of the day? Its 2am and I am hungry i am going to look for what to eat in the fridge, play kitchen scramble and pray that everybody somehow stops making noise and allows us some peace.
