July's all gone!

Hmm, it's been a really wonderful year for me. July being my nirth month always constitutes a reflection time for me (not like I don't do that in other months too but July is extra-special).

My birthday was so much fun, it was a work free day for me and well worth it. Spent a good deal of time with FL, we had a really beautiful time. My phone kept beeping from dawn to dusk. My family had a surprise planned for me- I was just so humbled by it all.

Looking back through the years, I've come to recognise my FL's hand in my life. He has saved me from so many things, from foolish decisions, to escaping freak accidents that coulda been fatal. And where I made mistakes or found myself in situations beyond my control, He's helped me not to be shaped my those mistakes/ situations, rather I've been able to learn from it and grow.

This year has been exceptionally good! Living intentionally is so much fun :) I sometimes forget and fall into my old self but He reminds me and I pick up again.

I've done some things that in the past I woulda been too worried about failing to even try but like a big brother told me " whatever is worth doing is worth failing at" the success is in making the move not in the final outcome. In that spirit, I planned a surpise bridalshower for a friend and though not all I expected turned up, but for those around, we had so much fun! The surprise on her face made it all worth it! A big thank you to a big sister that helped make it happen.

That brings me to another lesson I've learnt this year, when in doubt ask questions, the worst answer you can get is a negative one but you'll never know if you don't ask.

I still hide from somethings but I'm learning to challenge myesle more.

I'm not good enough, I'll never be but He loves me just the same (that's a post for another day)

Have a lovely new month! August is here!!

I am so excited

If you ask me why I am excited, I honestly don't know but I just know I am over the top.
Woke up this morning just so happy. I sang all the way to the office, I think it affected my dressing too this morning, I look really good- extra dolled up today ;)even if I am the one saying so. I am just glad to be alive, loving God and life!

Maybe the fact that my birthday is just around the corner (literarily- the coner being a day)has to do with it. Not like I have anything planned for the day just yet. Ideas anybody???

Anyway, hope you are having a great day too?

Ok gotta run now

I hope to be back in a bit
Hmm I want a new BB for my birthday is that too much to ask? Asking for a 'BB torch-9800 ' isn't "oliver twist" now is it?
I mean my birthday is just once a year, a Marc Jacob (any of the Daisy(s)will do) wont me a bad one in the mix too (just so partial to that fragrance I wonder why)

Ok, I know I am just rambling, but you can't grudge a girl for just being happy.

All my ducks don’t not line in a row
my list of to do's might not be all checked
my dreams need not all be fulfilled
but I am content in knowing I am loved by Love himself
I am always in safe hands

Do you still wonder why I am smiling all day long?
When I go to sleep, it’s in his everlasting arms as sleep laying on his chest
when I wake, it's to his kiss
when I go out, he is constantly with me, meeting my needs even before I think to ask
I might not have all you think I need
I am contented

Hmm that was impromptu
I should be excited everyday (and have a BB -winks) then I'll update daily

Lots of love
