If you are reading this post then please first help me shout HALLELUJAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!!! because that means I actually finished this post and was able to publish it. *phew* what a big relief. I have tried a million times in the last week to actually put up something but its been one challenge or the other. first my laptop packed up on me when I finally got it sorted I realized that I had lost the post which I had already written half way, okay so I brave that and decide to go forward, then my internet packs up on me and when I finally have that sorted out, my google chrome browser decides not to work, then I finally fix that and guess what, the file with the pictures I was supposed to use gets corrupted…like the true DCC member that I am….I refused to lose this battle and finally got the pictures sorted out….then Davida wakes up….aaaaargh! if it wasnt so annoying it would be funny…in fact come to think of it , it is funny ‘cos at some point I considered putting the blog up for sale….lol!
anyway had to run some errands with my Pk, and now i have a well fed sleeping Davida beside me so here I am laptop in hand . OK so I am back ….AGAIN! honestly I wake up everyday meaning to blog and then somehow it falls on my important but not urgent list *covering eyes*. you too weigh it na, crying Davida or writing on blog? hungry pk or writing on blog, planning surprise for my pk’s birthday or writing on blog? be honest which would you do first? so you see, blog….VERY IMPORTANT BUT NOT URGENT
OH!OH! Vida’s up. ok feeding break…be right back….
I’m back. so now let’s do this, I will cut all the preamble and go straight to what I wanted to talk to you about. it seems the major message for me now is that of knowing what’s important. last week was my pk’s birthday and a lot of people sent me messages saying thank God you must blog today …and to be honest I started the day on that note. I carried my laptop downstairs and while I was there, the Holy Spirit (HS) asked me who the blog was for… I mean i had a million and one answers and reasons why I should celebrate the man i love till my dear HS said to me: everyone that is going to read that blog already know you love him but is that really what’s important for him today? then he asked me What are you doing for the celebrant? what are you doing for Pk….so i remembered that he had taught me once that you love a person by their love language not by yours…
so i headed straight to the kitchen and whipped out my chef hat *wink wink* I gat skillz like that…;-) and by the time I came out of the kitchen my pk had a tray laden with prawns sautéed in coconut milk, stir fried chicken, peppered snails, chicken gizzard sauce ….need I say more? sorry guys no pictures but if you guys are really nice to me I just may put up the recipe 🙂 …especially for new brides like E’ …never know when you may need it 😉 ….at the end of the day the second round he asked for was more than enough compliment…always pays to listen to the HS. yes I know I had a lot of disappointed blog fans in fact some have threatened me with placards but see now, the gist is better now na…abi?
notice how the cake says happy birthday pastor daddy…lol.
boy! was he wrong. by 7am, there was a live band at my house …as we drove out there were cars lined all the way to church with horns honking, headlights flashing, people waving and singing , almost like a political rally..
I laughed so hard…for someone in the limelight so often he is still embarassed by attention… more so that we were almost causing traffic…thank God for our traffic guys who quickly sorted that out. I love my church… I totally love my DCC workforce …. you guys rock… amazingly they had been there since 6.30am.
by the time we got to church TRI (choir)were already repping in their coloured jumpsuits, then of course drama and dance was so on point it even got a few people in he house crying…then I had the rare privilege of unveiling one of pk’s favourite comedians
…okon of the okon goes to school fame …well. lets just say we got okon to go to church…lol! simply hilarious.
all in all it was a very beautiful day for him…he’s still talking about it. says its his best birthday yet. i honestly couldnt pull it off without two of my very precious children…amaka and wale . love you guys sooooo much. errrr… next year is not far o! get to work guys.
