Happy Resurrection week

Just popping by to say happy Resurrection week and i hope you had a blessed one. I find it so beautiful that God almighty gave His precious son as a gift and Pascal/Resurrection week is a time which often brings it home to me. The Bible is very explicit on the pain and suffering that Christ endured on the cross. Upon the cross we saw the exchange of beauty to ashes take place. Jesus took all the sins of the world upon his shoulders and return He gave salvation and peace. I am so thankful each and every single day especially during this precious time of the year.Β kids bible - Copy

I thoroughly enjoyed teaching my little princess about Easter and what happened to Jesus. The littlest one has a toddlers bible but we used her big sister’s read and share bible which is published by Tommy Nelson. They love this bible because at the end of every chapter there are questions that little ones can relate to.

Asides from indulging on the love of God, the little ones enjoyed sweet treats,chocolate eggs and a yummy chicken roast by myself.

Happy Shrove Tuesday yay

Happy Shrove Tuesday to all those celebrating. Shrove Tuesday which is also known as pancake day is one of the many important days on the Christian calendar. It is the last day before the season of lent. On pancake day we enjoy rich food such butter and eggs because once Lent season begins, some people choose to give up on certain rich food. Pancake Tuesday is important because it is also the countdown to Easter (Pascal) which is truly the most important day in the whole Christian calendar for obvious reasons. Without the Resurrection of Jesus, Salvation would be non existent and i for one i am eternally grateful for all Christ did on the Cross for me amen.

My princesses and i enjoyed some yummy pancakes,strawberries,nutella and honey. I love the fact that i can get them involved in these types of activities because it opens doors to questions and answers which in turn brings forth knowledge. Here are the pictures of our lovely desert…yummy yummy

Happy new year 2017πŸ’’πŸŽπŸŽ†πŸŽ†πŸŽ‰πŸŽŠπŸŽŠ

Happy New year !! Hip hip hooray praise the Lord πŸ™ŒπŸ™ŒπŸ™Œ.

May the good Lord order our steps πŸ‘£πŸ‘£πŸ‘£ as we step into this brand new year. I don’t know about you but I have seen the goodness of God in 2016 and I am eternally thankful. There were ups and downs and at times some things were beyond my human understanding but God in His Grace and mercy brought us through it all. So to God be the glory for the great things He hath done amen.
Have a blessed and marvellous new year filled with the Β blessings of God which maketh rich. The Bible tells us Β in proverbs 10:21, ‘The blessing of theΒ Lord, it maketh rich, and he addeth no sorrow with it’.
Β 
I know that God is not an ATM machine where we can just at the drop of a hat or rather pin number demand this blessings.This is because as followers of Christ we understand that the foremost numero uno aspect of our faith is having a personal relationship with Christ. Walking with Christ everyday and spending quality time in His word. I also understand as a believer our words are very important and as the Bible says ‘life’ and ‘death’ is at the power of the tongue. So let’s speak the blessings of God upon us and our families,homes,loved ones ,teachers,ministers etc for 2017 amen …..Again I say happy New year 2017 praise the Lord πŸŽŠπŸŽŠπŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’’πŸ’’πŸ’’πŸ’’πŸ’’

This poem totally blessed my socks off:)

poemcover-copyMy toddler has not been feeling her best due to chickenpox….yes out of all things to bring home from nursery at Christmas she decided to bring chickenpox. Because she has not been feeling her best, she has been misbehaving a bit. This is quite normal for her. Whenever she is not well i have to work ten times harder whether to help her with eating or just general playing nicely with her big sister. Last week was no different when she started crying on the bus. She wanted this and that and most of all she wanted whatever was not available on the bus. In the end i found one of her big sister’s book at the bottom of the basket on the pushchair. I used this t calm her down by showing her the lovely pictures of Santa. She then cried and said, ‘wead it for me mummy’. Bless my princess she is still struggling with her Rs and Ls.

As i began to read to her she calmed down and i myself began to enjoy the book. The poem that totally blessed me is by Christina Rossetti called, ‘In the bleak midwinter’. I decided to paste it on here to share the joy and the love.Β 

In the bleak midwinter, frosty wind made moan,
Earth stood hard as iron, water like a stone;
Snow had fallen, snow on snow, snow on snow,
In the bleak midwinter, long ago.
Our God, Heaven cannot hold Him, nor earth sustain;
Heaven and earth shall flee away when He comes to reign.
In the bleak midwinter a stable place sufficed
The Lord God Almighty, Jesus Christ.
Enough for Him, whom cherubim, worship night and day,
Breastful of milk, and a mangerful of hay;
Enough for Him, whom angels fall before,
The ox and ass and camel which adore.
Angels and archangels may have gathered there,
Cherubim and seraphim thronged the air;
But His mother only, in her maiden bliss,
Worshipped the beloved with a kiss.
What can I give Him, poor as I am?
If I were a shepherd, I would bring a lamb;
If I were a Wise Man, I would do my part;
Yet what I can I give Him: give my heart.

Merry Christmas 2016

Wow i cannot believe Christmas is already here. It has been a very interesting year with so much happening that i feel as if Christmas just crept up on me just like that…bham!!

I just love Christmas and i love the author of Christmas Himself…Jesus Christ. Christmas is a wonderful time when i am reminded of how it all begun. I am reminded of how my Lord gave up His riches to be born in a manger surrounded by what a new born baby (let alone a king) should not be surroundedΒ with . The beautiful story of the birth of Jesus sort of reflects upon how He was born in the most unpleasant and hostile circumstances. To me the beginning resembles the end in that His earthly life ended also in the most unpleasant,hostile,and brutal way. This emphasises how much of a sacrifice Salvation is. Jesus came just for one thing and that was salvation and He did it all for me (and whosoever).

This is not a sad story, this is a beautiful story. This is a story of true love. The good book tells us that, ‘ Β For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life’

With all that in mind i just want to say a very merry Christmas and a happy new year.

Santa in Nigeria…lol

 

I am not a big fan of chain letters and chain messgaes as i believe the blessings of God is not dependent on how many messages i can forward ( ahhh glad to clear that).This video gave me the giggles and i had to hit the forward button as soon as i received it.

This video is just so funny and my girls have already learned the dance routine. Well done to the creator πŸ™‚

 

 

 

It’s going to a blessed summer :)

I thoroughly enjoyed myself this morning. I enjoyed the fresh morning sun,cup of tea and most importantly the word of God. It has been weeks since i have sat down to relax like this. Normally i am either stuck in traffic, attending playgroup,assembly or the usual school activities. My usual routine keeps me so busy that by the time i have done the morning school run, get home, blink twice then it is home time and time to dash off again but today was simply beautiful. Today i was able to just enjoy the early morning sun bouncing from the sky to my windows while i enjoyed the daily word. I did not just pour my tea in my mouth as i normally would when rushing…no i just sat and enjoyed every drop and appreciated the fact that summer holiday is indeed upon us. God is so good and i intend to enjoy the beauty of His works even beyond the summer holidays when the hustle and bustle returns.
