Can’t believe it’s already the last day of April….and boy, was April full for me. First it was full of events, full of blessings, full of surprises, full of birthdays ….and speaking of birthdays, April 12th is a really special day for me. It’s the birthday of my first born,
my pride and joy, my special blessing from God. On this day
this specially gifted angel from God turned 3…yeah, yea. I know it’s hard to believe. Even I sometimes tease her that she’s 33 not 3 because the things she says sometimes, I’m in awe really . She’s like a wise old soul that has been around for years. I can’t help thinking heaven must really miss this one.
I’m humbled really that God would choose us to parent this very special child. She’s the epitome of her name Hadassah…an ever green tree… As refreshing as ever.
Onyeshielibe…a constant reminder that no one can determine the destiny of another.
Once dassah walks into a room she simply takes over….with her smile, her charm, her warmth, her compassion, her wit. She’s such a rare gem …and God chose ME? to mother her…. Hmmmmm….
Hadassah Onyeshielibe Okonkwo, is now a big 3….er both of us know you are actually 33 but hey who’s counting? mummy loves you. You make me so proud
It was also my god-son’s birthday on April. He has the most interesting name 🙂
Isaac Diekololaminiwajuoluwa samuel-onyeani turned one. He looks two though 😉
It was also aunty naybell’s (mabel)
Okay so a million and one birthdays really but that’s not what this is about. Let me Welcome you to May.
I love May. It’s a very polite month :-). It’s not like March. March just storms you with whatever it has but May on the other hand seems to ask, “MAY I bless you? ” you need to allow May come in with all its got for you. Give it permission in the place of prayer.
Okay so that done, let’s move on to other businesses, I’m sure you noticed o barely blogged this month. No excuses but I’ve had a lot of other stuff on my mind.
First we have WHEN WOMEN WORSHIP Coming up soon. Were you at IMELA last year?
Well, it’s almost here again and this time the theme is akikitan.
It’s actually yoruba styled theme and the planning team decided since we are doing it yoruba style why not go all out so the ladies are selling aso-ebi. If you are interested these are the numbers to call.
If you are single call- sis funmi 08029681392
If you are married call – sis Moni 08023180503
Or simply call blessing – 08037770384
I’m sure they can hook you up . I hear it’s really affordable so don’t worry. It’s N1250 For 3 yards and N2500 for 6 yards. I can try to get the pictures for you later.
But that’s not the main thing I need your help with. Here’s the real issue. I know today is dilemma Tuesday but I kinda need to turn it to a Testimony Tuesday for now. We are putting together a magazine with testimonies from Imela and I’d like you to send in yours or if you know someone who got a testimony from Imela we would love to have it.
Please send to
And copy firstname.lastname@example.org.
I gotta run now before Vida gets up.
