Update

My personal peeps

How are you all doing? I see God’s work unfolding in your life and I thank God for you lot. He has all the power, raw materials and time to finish the work he started in you. When you think of it life is worth living cos Baba God has not finished just yet.

What can I say, I think I have broken a record as far as blogville is concerned o, yippee yippe doo dooo daaah. I got not one, not two, but three virtual cakes from three different bloggers on this ogbonge blogville, infact one of them was an Alien cake and the other was invisible.
Mommy, Aijay and Darkelcee merci beaucoup for the cakes, it was very thoughtful of you.
Thank you all for your prayers and birthday wishes in fact my head was swollen.

So you want to know what I did on my Birthday shey, I did Nada. 30+ was working all through, imagine that. All the folks calling me from England coould not believe I was working 'cos it was bank holiday for them. I got some lovely cards and gifts. I felt special that day sha and was so joyful and thankful to God I cried that evening. God has been good to me is all I can say…I can’t shout.

I have been quite bizzy in the past week and have only managed to do some blogrounds.

E be like say YES, WE CAN, Obama is rocking...

Personal gist level, not much is happening, lost a couple of pounds.

My flatmate said I look like a 23-25 year old - buuuaaaaaah

Oh yeah I have got a new flatmate, a foine looking guy with a small semblance to Superman's dad (but younger, he is caucasian ). After the initial panic that I may have subconsciously taken on a foine looking flatmate with an ulterior motive, things are back to normal. Temptation is far from me now because he smokes (dude lied that he didn't) and he does not believe in God, how unsexy.
Peeps mi, the first couple of days/week I was avoiding the guy big time as in and lead me not to temptation but deliver me from slander. Imagine the headline "notorious no sex before marriage naija blogger, 30+ jumps her flatmate in a moment of heated lust"chei, God forbid. It will be worse than Samson and Delilah at least they had a hollywood movie. Mine would be a cheap Nollywood flick with 'ill dressed' actors and actresses and razz lines.

Selah
Have you ever wondered it is been so many years Samson did the do and yet folks are still talking about it, long after God had forgiven Samson, David and Bathsheba nko. In the same way there are some things you and I have done in the past which God has since forgiven but the people around you will keep reminding you and using you as the example. You may even be the one that has refused to forget what God has since erased. My friend get stepping, Old things have passed away, as long as you hang onto that past the future will be a struggle for you to move into.....

14th is keeping us all entertained so get your fill on from THE STREET. Writers let's read some daylight stories please, let's hear from some of the other characters in the neighbourhood, abi nothing else dey happen for the street ni. May God bless your brains and keyboard as you take time to deliver such graphic and entertaining stories.

Till later

Shalom

Well sometimes we just cant seem to forgive ourselves , at times its our mind/devil playing ticks on us.

Lol! Superman's dad is HOT! ( i presume you mean in Smallville, not the superman movies with Christopher Reeve R.I.P).

It's so true about us as individuals, as well as the people around us not letting us forget our mistakes long after God has....Yes! And that's exactly what will happen if you jump Superman's dad!

@Tolantino, we are all guilty of it, you are welcome

Mommy said...

Hey gurlfriend! I was beggining to wonder if it was the birthday that had been keeping you away from updating.

There was a time in my life I could never get to forget the past or forgive myself for something I did. Heck I couldn't even go to church. I felt so dirty. Then I heard it...Old things are passed away. And Baba God forgave long before I even realised it.

Take care babes.

Parakeet said...

naijalines said...

Happy belated bday, sista. Thoroughly enjoyed reading your post. You will resist all temptation in Jesus name. Maybe that unbelieving room mate of yours is there for a reason. Things always happen for a reason.

I think I've mentioned it b4 that I experience probs with reading your posts and leaving comments when I'm here. Don't know why but it takes ages to get the post. The red rose covers the whole page and i have to keep trying! Have other people complained about this?

DiAmOnD hawk said...

whoa... i missed your bday.... jo ma binu. Happy belated birthday....

and I so feel you on moving on from the past... sometimes we are guilty of holding someone to their past... they may have changed... but we dont know it... a friend reminded me of that when talking about another friend... I had to pause cuz I hadnt consciously realized what I was doing....

does your flatmate smoke inside?

anyways chicka... take it ez...

Zephi Fahrenheit said...

I guess God let the guy have that vice that you detest to withdraw you from your lust...i think if he was not a smoker we would have been hearing marriage plans by now..lol

"...but the people around you will keep reminding you..." well, guess this compels us to consciously not hear what some people shout. A tough one though but needful.
