A is for April

click to join the challenge


A is for april. With April comes the rains, with april comes mangoes. how i love mangos. With April comes April fools day...and so i scream Happy birthday to every atheist out there...I'm only stating the fact for  'a fool says in his heart, "there is no God"' psalm 14:1
With April comes change in Nigeria, hopefully it'll be a peaceful one, with the right men and women in power.
With April comes My sister's birthday, how i love my sister, she's special, shes strong, shes sweet, shes beautiful and she's a nut case, a special nutcase i can't do without.

Best of all, with April comes Easter, a special time where the Love of God is revealed and celebrated in the sacrifice of Christ for my sins, the defeat of the devil in his own game... the cross and those stripes taken to restore life and hope to me, to give me health, to give me joy, to give me peace, and to give me the right to step boldly into the fathers presence and call him FATHER, because the blood from that cross washes me of sin, and frees me from the wrath of God. Easter is all about Gods love for us.

And with April comes the A-Z challenge. I signed up at the last minute. And I'm thinking "what in the world am i doing?"
Lets see how disciplined i can be. Basically its a post a day all through the month of April except for Sundays. Thus 26 blog posts–one for each letter of the alphabet. Each day's post will be themed according to a letter of the alphabet. We're allowed to post on anything and everything. Should be fun:)

  1. Lovely post. I never associated April with mangoes, but I do like mangoes. And today is Atheist's Day (April Fools Day). You will do just fine with the A to Z Challenge.


    Contrary to my usual practice of subscribing to comments, to save time during challenge I will not be doing so during April. If you want to respond to my comment , please email me directly from your email notification for the comment.
    Thanks.
