Still going strong…
Today I’m doing a combo of Thankful Tuesday and dilemma Tuesday. Do you know what that means? You get a double portion today yay!!!
And I’m doing this because I need to push myself. I am sooooo tired.
But tired ain’t got nothing on me. So rather than go AWOL on you guys I decided to put “my body under” and go the extra mile today. No giving up
So even though I’m Exhausted today I’m still Very grateful for my life and all the many blessings in it.
I’m off for another conference tomorrow. Hopping on another plane tomorrow for a few days of learning. I don’t think I’ve ever done this before- a full and very intensive three weeks. I could easily feel overwhelmed but I choose to be thankful for my rich, full, satisfying, fulfilled and very busy life.
So even though like I said I’m so tired? I’m happy it’s a Tuesday because now I’m forced to be thankful 😉
So what am I thankful for today?
I’m thankful for all the amazing people and beautiful relationships God has brought my way. I’m learning to be more appreciative of people more now than ever because I don’t think my life would be possible without the people God sends to me. Now I usually wouldn’t do a name thing because I don’t want to miss out anyone but today I will just go with the flow.
So I’m especially thankful for all the JUGN helpers God has sent me and they are the ones I’m thankful for today.
Of course my assistant on all things kemi aka Miss Shittu
How she copes with my life and hers I have no idea. I bounce every idea and execution off her. I pick her brain and harass her to harass me to meet all my deadlines. She manages schedules and all other things. Co-writes on the blog. Gosh! Just writing all she does I’m tired and she runs kemistry photography also responsible for most of davids lovely pictures.
Then of course blessing … chief accountant aka “voice of reason” 😂😂😂 left to kemi and I JUGN conference will hold on the moon and we would serve oysters and diamond crusted bibles as souvenirs 😂😂😂
blessing is just that … a blessing!
Wife and mother of two.
Faithful steward of God’s money and resources. Never met anyone so excited about God’s work. Everything thing is “hey! Oya now mama let’s do it” Very passionate. She can burst into tears if someone is not going God’s work with the consciousness of how great God is and how much he deserves and yet she can tear you to shreds with an “it’s God’s own and you are wasting it?!”
Oh! And blessing is a Worshipper
Then if you’ve ever been at any Of our meetings whether WWW or JUGN conferences then you must have gotten a promise as you walked in. This is the angel that God sent me to prayerfully and lovingly write out those promises. Bose is such a huge blessing and very low maintenance. Even when she was going through her own personal struggles still very consistent.
Someone once asked me how I manage running my life with such young babies. This is my major armor bearer on that one. Eky aka Aunty Eky aka Aunty mama aka Aunty Amama aka Amamama 😁
She runs shifts with me 😂 assistant mummy as I call her. She’s the one who holds my kids when I need to write or pray or prepare. She takes them home when I need to stay back at work. She cares for them when I need to travel for work. Although we need to add some more doses of play other than that she’s amazing and she does all this while doubling as church admin.
She can groove sha o she just looks quiet 😂 our traveller. Eky knows how to just shut down and travel. This life is too short abeg. I feel you 😂
These next two people … husband and wife run all our creatives. I don’t know what I did to deserve them … femi and amaka
Sorry femi you are too tall I cut your head 😂😂😂
Femi always had my back ..,. Literally 😂
Amaka on the other hand is rarely seen but her work is never hidden
The way she interprets my dreams you would think she lives in my head. …or my heart.
Finally I can’t thank God for JUGN without mentioning these two people.
Tope and Diche make up an outfit known as Writers Ink and that’s one business that firmly and consistently holds up our hands financially at JUGN. If you see them blessed don’t even wonder why. He that waters shall be watered. Their reward is so great. Their consistent sacrificial partnership makes our ministry of generosity very easy.
Like I always say when you see something as beautifully organized or blessing lives much as you would like to believe it’s angels paying for it, It is not. Human beings are writing cheques and while you just makeup and go for events and shout all night “Lord do for me!” He is already doing for some who asked him earlier “Lord what will I do for you?”
Any way in all I’m grateful and thankful for all these and many more wonderful people who time will not allow me mention now. I’m truly grateful Lord but I’m even more thankful for the amazing people whom he will send to join our team.
Okay so dilemma time.
You know what this means right? Best comment wins a gift.
I got married in April 2010 and my husband and I are trusting God for a child. Only last week a family meeting was called by my father in-law. And that meeting has turned my life upside down.
I just discovered that my husband of 7 years had an affair 2 years ago and although he claims it was a one night stand and totally unplanned as we are both Christians. He was simply at the wrong place, wrong time with the wrong crowd. Now the issue is this. The girl got pregnant and didn’t know how to tell him. Her parents live outside the country She was staying with an Aunty while doing her NYSC. During child birth she died. The Aunty took care of the baby for a while but didn’t mention it to her parents or tell them cause of death. Now the baby is a year and few months and the Aunty is about to get married and cannot continue to care for this child and somehow traced my father in-law.
My husband sat there with shock clearly written all over his face and few moments of shame if I read the expression correctly because right now I feel like I don’t know him anymore. He did this and never once mentioned it. How did he sleep at night? I fear he can even kill me.
Now I’m faced with two issues
1. My father Inlaw thinks I should take the child since we have none yet and it’s a boy. If I do if I now have a child won’t there be issues?
2. If I accept this child won’t I always remember he cheated on me? If I don’t won’t I look like a witch?
I need advice please.
Okay guys let’s help a sister out. Put your self in her shoes this is a very difficult time for her.
God bless you darlings
Good night. I need to get Vida to sleep it’s almost midnight and she’s still wide awake. Lord have mercy.
Tomorrow is for wives.
Let’s talk then
