On Thanksgiving and Baby Alert...

Congrats dearest Chichi!!! I'm sorry I couldn't make your wedding, but look... I used your asoebi a day after for thanksgiving to feel like I was a part of your day. Grace and more grace in your marriage.
I love December just because... It’s such a beautiful and special month where all the frustration, challenges, Joy, laughter, fears, achievements and pain of the past months seems to melt into it and get reshaped to a joyful, peaceful and thankful end, because despite it all, you’ve been such a survivor, and nothing beats that. It’s a month that should be shaped with thanksgiving to God for His grace. Through it all, God kept you, you’re still standing, you’re still breathing, you’re still hoping… Only the living can keep hoping, so even as much as you feel like all your expectations for the year were not met, you’re breathing and you have another chance to make it work. Thank God  for His grace.

It was the end of year thanksgiving at church! I have so much to be thankful for… The year isn’t over, and my expectations are still so high, like it’s overdosed on drugs. Not like I know what it feels like to be overdosed, but I’m sure it’s such a high, probably why people keep getting sunk in it.

I’m thankful for so much more than I can say! God proved Himself to me and my family over and over again this year. And I’m so thankful for how limitless He is, I know Him in one way and just as I’m trying to get my head over this new revelation, He reveals Himself in a bigger way. Great God.
Take a minute to be thankful… There’s so much you can say thank you for even with the ‘buts’ that’s all around you. God loves you and He is faithful despite what you’ve been through, that’s a reason for a praise break!

I haven’t written here in a bit. Life has been happening, and in the midst of the happening, I have felt so drained… emotionally from all the good stuff and all the confusing stuff. You know how a sense of achievement sort of loses the physical evidence of your joy… because, just because. I just birthed my baby, I can’t wait to share her with you. This pregnancy has been carried for too long, but I let fear stop my birthing process, I’m glad I finally pushed through… and like a mother stays in bed to be rejuvenated soon after the labor of pushing out her baby, I’m on an emotional pause. I’ll share the details with you soon enough… Just a peek of what she looks like…(Still a little surreal!)

  1. Just dropping by to say congratulations on the 'baby' and thank you for all the inspiration you give. I've been following for over 2 years now and must say I pick up so many gems from your posts, and admire your tenacity in your relationship with God, which encourages souls like mine to keep searching for Him and building our relationship too. Best wishes for when the baby is finally released and here's hoping you get all you hope for, from it :)
