Happy Birthday

december twenty eleven begins

i've got a headache right now and it is only cos i am trying to beat nature and ensuring i don't fall asleep till after 9pm..... well i have been feeling sleepy since 11am...
but then again there are seriously more important things than reading that above
like saving the euro i suppose

wow December begins with rain...last year twas snow
thankful that we have been given the opportunity to be alive even now
being thankful i have learned and experienced is way better than mopping and feeling sorry for yourself

I got a temp job.... like my first in ages.......and this one pays lol
I pray that no matter what i'll always be the girl God has made me to be
a vessel of honor

this year has been different, with a lot of 'firsts'. Still i pray that we will all be smiling in thirty-one days' time as we wish each other happy new year

here's to winds and rains and meeting new people.... to presents and smiles and funny faces.

worrying...

This morning, the first Bible verse I read was 1 Peter 5:7. I still had tiny bit of worry in me.

Went off about my day's business...worry abit worry develops wings and flies...but comes back several times.

I had to take a mini (well traffic no gree make im mini) journey during the day... still abit of worrying tho
about "my issues" and I saw a guy covered with warts one of my buses...head, face, hands.
"Can my worrying help me positively in anyway?" My Thots
I said a prayer or two
Healing for the guy
Help for my issues

Moved on, came across a london freak speaking to himself
"Lord have mercy" My Thots

Then this night on the bus home...just needing my bed as it drizzles... I see a lady, her head resting on the bus window, half asleep I remember that verse.

Dear Lord,I get so preoccupied with myself often times. There I go thinking about me me me. Help me learn to look away from me more times and seek to intercede for others

ah ha a feel moment

So last friday i was on my way out to the other side of town and i needed to top up my oyster card. I headed to baker street station and while i was trying not to bump into anyone (rush hour) some nice dude waited for me to cross his path. There i was "in my element... lost in thought" looked up
in my mind: I know this guy ahhhhaaaaa
on my face: quick smile, nods thanks, head back down, eyes on the walk way
in my mind: gosh i know that guy!
other side of my mind: my friend! top up and catch the bus
and i pondered and pondered till saturday morning....then ah ha!
"this guy" happened to be Adetomiwa Edun who plays the character Sir Elyan in bbc's Merlin series. i picked up watching Merlin earlier this year when i saw a couple of episodes at one really nice Aunt's house.
omd! he's smaller in person... all the same i should have done what regular people do...err take a picture or something.
:)

ps: say a prayer for at least 3 different countries everyday in the month…

one day in the past

After this post y'all *say it with an american southern accent* ok may be not all, someone may think he/she knows me...

It's tuesday morning, cafe (pronounced caff)menu is bread, boiled egg and *weak tea* well they don't actually call it weak, and it isn't tea...it is bournvita or may be milo or be pronto.
Girls' dorm is bustling with noise, bathing, bucket filling and carrying *if there is water, most girls fill their buckets the night before* ironing... yea we were proud of the short (well mine was always),blue and white striped uniforms we wore. I had my favourite, it was a round neck gown with pockets on both sides and rested well above my knees.
"I'm opening sardine" I say to my roommate
"Good I'll open baked beans" she replies...heinz, you know the deal.
Other preparations continue as we get ready for the day.
6.45am "gba! gba! gba!" that is the sound of the padlock hitting some part of the door. Trust me you can hear it fro…

the thing about 14th

happy birthday gramps

it's another 14th and it has been a bit quiet tho...
i've been listening to fela, i'm meant to do some illustrations on him
you know his birthday is tomorrow?
well it is
October is filled with the births of the exceptionally great
Thank God for life

Don't get too close to the edge and mess up,
it brings unseen tears
heavy lumps in the throat
stooping shoulders
and lost thoughts...

Lord, please make me have growing faith...

happy hugging

I am having one of those days.....
Why can't there be "happy hugging" you know like "happy slapping"?
I want a hug and someone to read me "psalm 34"
Heaven I need a hug
Someone tell me it will change
Lord show me,let me learn your way

thinking-ish

It's life... It's like a fabric, may be ankara fabric.
It is colourful, sometimes beautiful as well.
The patterns and the colours all bright.
Sometimes it is not beautiful...
Takes keep looking till you are drawn.
The colours, dry and a drab. Plain plain plain till plain is deeper.
That is life, a mix of fun times and not so fun times, happy times
and not so happy times, smiles, thrills and laughter, frowns,
cryings and wails...
Keep looking into it and you learn your lesson.
The fabric has two sides...
And so does life

this day,30

We don't know for sure if things would have been different if you were still alive. Well, some things will definitely have been different.
Three years it has been. I learn new things, sometimes daily, sometimes weekly or even monthly.
Learned a lot, you were different too
A much better place you are now, that isn't a compensation
It is a block used in building up my hope

I made a friend...I'm dedicating a song of his to you..."empty spaces"...

in view of these things

Funny how every certain number of years there occurs the 'end of the world' movement...
*shrug* it is funny to me
It is by so called Christians; rather sad too....
A bible passage that has been on my mind since i read about this movement is  Romans 12:3
"don't think of yourself more highly than you" paraphrased... 
They make Christianity all about fear and not all about Love. They also make it some kind of huge joke, these so caled Christians. Being a Christian is so not calculating figures and dates from the book of Daniel and then putting fear in the hearts of other men. My friend and I had a conversation about it, initially I hard a "no comment" stand on it then seating in the library later I began to type this post. 
I just remembered...there's a bible passage that says the heart of man is desperately wicked...
I am not saying that this present world won't come to an end. I am believing my bible that says no man knows the day, nor the time, nor the…

mind crossing Thot 2

Here's me wishing everything made sense to me.... Ok these things made sense......
Am I failing the test?

mind crossing Thot

Funny how people believe in aliens, occultic powers, angels, demons, strange encounters, supernatural occurences but don't believe God.

Pitta rant'a'

Summer holidays are round the corner, this year, so far has been different in many ways. Finally I will be spending the holidays in different many ways as well....

London town was warm for a few days, so it has been bare bodies and green grass...so far this year I have at different times gone out of my comfort zone, made friends, even gone to new places, met quality time wasters as well. The best part is I have learnt and i am still learning and learning a lot from the Bible too. 

Cooking........I have learnt to cook food lmao! One day (a couple of years ago I loved to be driven till I had no one to actually drive me about- the convenient thing I did was learn to drive). That's how it has been with cooking. I started with the stuff I eat, so far it has been ok. Just don't expect too much cooking from me, I work on moods plus I still don't 'enjoy it' in that sense... and if u are thinking 'i am sorry for this babe, don't waste time' I love eating cereal an…

I guess I am just...

Acting kindly is a decision one decides to take. I simply think people should ensure they are smart when others I kind to them. Lol others like me :). I read between, between under, between over the lines. I read meaning into everything and then again that is just me.

I believe when someone is kind to me I should not in anyway inconvenience the person and especially by bugging. I tend to remember my gestures therefore I don't need external reminders. I believe have offered the kind gesture hence I owe myself the duty to ensure I recall it and make I carry out whatever it is I ought to carry out. I find it irritating when people begin to wary my phone with unamazing calls, which i don't pick *shrug*. The calls make me wonder why i bother, then i am reminded about galatians 6:9 in the bible which requires one never to grow wary of doing good..... There is a huge difference between persistence and pestering, I don't enjoy being pestered, although I'd rather say it has help…

Friday the good day

I've been learning a lot about Grace
........there much more and much more Grace thanwe can imagine
it is sometimes enough for us humans year in year out to perform the rituals
and routines sacrificially.........not taking time to ponder and understand.
We ought not to take delight in physical display but in true spiritual believing;
Not in walking about with wooden crosses and thorny crowns.....
In view of all the rituals and routines, I hope someone took time to gaze on the risen Christ
the Glorified and Grace-ful Christ with so much love, His blessings have made us rich without
adding any sorrow
let Good Friday be full of thanksgiving moments, rejoicing that no more are we weighed down
by the weight of sin, He has called his own
*greater love has caused that he lay His life for his friends, His people* 

******it is a relationship He has with us not a religion we have with Him******

been a year now

it has been a year now
doubt his family has moved on
moving on is a hard thing to do
no matter what they say
and his friends.........
The few I know haven't really
it is always different when you know
you won't be hearing the person say 'hi'
it has been a year now
for some it doesn't feel so long

For myself

tears for myself
I let them fall out
Sad for myself
Is that the way out?
A push for myself 
I need to get out
Weary is myself 
From finding no way out
Out of this ...
Depending on myself
has left me further cheerless

Pray, Lord
I surrender myself
Pull me out of these dumps

this day, a couple of years ago
our friend was born
he has passed, 6years out of this world
with a little part of each of us
that hole, he only fills
i'll hold on always
because we miss him this much
rest now dear dear,
we can't forget you so soon

Just before the month ends

Hello blogworld, it's been more than a minute. There have been earthquakes and tsunamis, bombings and gunshots, civil unrests and huge protests... killings and trials, rapes and trials......
Lots of frowns and high death toll numbers........ Other things have happened....... But there have been rains and sunshines, smiles and laughter, hugs and kisses, fun and adventures, good times and seriously good times........ Ninety days, the first quarter of 2011is ending, may we pray the next 91 days hold no sorrow for the righteous? and for the wicked........?

Elections are coming up in Nigeria, will you be voting? (as long as you are registered and will be in Nigeria then).

Dear Black Berry... 3

torres moved to chelsea, big deal! he's totally free to move he didn't sign all his playing days to liverpool jo.... :D, i like Adebayor (as a player) i'm never bothered when people speak. they haven't been in his 'boots' before and then that's football and then some
my footie club still tops the league table haha!

Dear Black Berry,
seems no one has still bothered to 'check on the girl complaining about the PING'. It's 2011 and well i am still here, irritated by those red words. So why can't BBM be upgraded? why can't 'Effective use of the PING' be published? why should people 'PING' to say hi? Mute the PING' so no one's PINGing me to say HI.*eyes rolling*
Why PING me to say HI? geez!!! if you PING to say hi... you are very wrong... go straight to the point.
This is a case of the PING gone bad ... well technically the Task of the PING not being fully grasped.


Yours BBly,

the flygirl

one day

one day i will grow in love

their posts will be different as well
