Finishing means winning


My daughter has this thing where she says, “I’m the winner” when she finishes her dinner first. The the bother will finish second but amazingly my daughter will say ” E is the second winner”

When we finish the race, we will be winners in God’s eyes and that that!

I’m sat here watching football (world cup 2014) and just wondering what your relationship’s bottom line is. Sadly, for most of us, the basis for our relationships is sex!

When you look back to the time when God created Eve for Adam, he presented her to Adam as a companion and a helper and not as a sex partner. Sadly, most of our relationships today are sexual and that is just that. That is why, when you want companionship, he/she is away spending time with the people that give him that which you can not give because after all, you’re just a sex partner whom he ended up marrying and is afraid to divorce for one reason or the other.

I’m not implying that we should not find companionship in other people but when you have a life partner you want that from them. You want to be able to spend time together whether you’re having sex or not, you have to be able to talk to one another, laugh together, plan, your life, pray together and for one another, cry together and do all those silly and important things with your companion and your helper.

Crap day and accident things

Today has been one of the crappiest days I have had in a long while. I really wanted to cry but my tears don’t come easy unless it’s something to do with my kids’ health. 

Anyway, as if to ensure the day was as bad as it could get, I got rear-ended by a driver who in her own admission was trying to change something on her car radio. One minute I was in slow traffic in Cheltenham waiting for the cars ahead to move. The next minute there was this horrible crashing sound! The lady who hit me was as shaken as I was. We both sat in our cars for what seemed like forever to take in what just happened.

Managed to get checked over at the A&E and all is good apart from a headache and a sore neck. Thanking God cos it could’ve been worse.

I sleep to face tomorrow, so help me God!

Loving someone who don’t love you back

There’s nothing as painful as being in love with someone who doesn’t even know you’re alive.

But we do it to our Lord and saviour all the time. We ignore him and totally ignore His existence day in day out. We ignore His word and His will for our lives yet His love for us remains true. The good thing with our saviour is, He loved us first and will love us to the end.

We can never be too dirty for the Lord to make clean.

Today I finally got round to hoovering and cleaning the car. In my eyes, it was too embarrassingly filthy to take to the car wash. I mean, what would they say?

I’m reminded by the Holy Spirit that no matter what we have done, we can be forgiven and made whole again. In fact, all we need to do is ask the Father for forgiveness and He will forgive us.

Psalms 103:12 ‘As far as the East is from the West, so far has He taken our sins from us.

Isaiah 1:18 “Come now, let us settle the matter,” says the Lord. “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool.

I did clean my car yes, but we don’t need to clean our sins. We only need to ask Him who cleaned us before we were born.

Let us not allow the devil’s lies stop us from getting out of our mess! He will lie that your sins are too great to be forgiven but brethren, no sin is too BIG FOR FORGIVENESS! Let us not sink deeper into ungodly ways because of the lies whispered by the enemy, instead let us get on our knees and pray.

To God be the Glory

I’m back but feeling lazy

I have been back in the UK for 3 weeks so really this is not the time to say I’m back. This blogging thing is not easy but I shall keep trying to write something.

My flight home with two kids was al right. I left home with only one and a half hours to checkin desk closure. I was not allowed to check in online because I was travelling with two under 2 kids. Anyway my pal drove like mad and we made Heathrow in 1hr 20mins which was a record cos that journey usually takes 2hrs. Rushed through the airport and managed to check in in good time. Y’all know the nightmare that is Heathrow security checks. Now multiply that by three. Had to take baby out of buggy, fold it, go through to the other side, take all the food and taste it, wait for the milk powder and the meds to be tested, open some of the formula up and taste…Jeso! Then I realised I had left my babies’ bottles at home. so where to pour the two opened packs??? I was at this point feeling very very hot and sweaty (eeew I know)

Anyway mad dash for the gate with the help of a Kenyan fellow who was flying on the same flight. He helped me all the way to the last point where they check the boarding pass. Then he had to go find his seat! I mean he helped me but surely – seat allocation anyone?? Anyway he was getting restless so I told him to go.

I asked the staff at the Virgin Atlantic desk for assistance to get on board. Remember I’m tired and the babies are crying cos mama forgot to bring the bottles (they were perched on the kitchen counter at home)

The stupid Virgin Atlantic woman asked me “How did you get here?” Uuuuuiii! I lost it. Asked her why she was being rude. I had two kids (evidently) I was flying with Virgin and I was asking for assistance. Gave her a piece of my mind and proper told her off. I was pissed! I really do not want to fly that airline again unless it’s unavoidable.

On board, got a bottle off the airline and fed the kids. The little one promptly went to sleep in his little cot. Baby R took an hour to sleep. They slept through to an hour before landing.

JKIA is awesome to fly into on a Sunday morning people. They got me someone to assist with the hand luggage and one baby from when I exited the plane. Someone else gathered all my hold baggage in a pile (I had loads Utilised the 138kg allowance like a true Kenyan) and when I walked down the steps, someone asked me if I was FG. I said yes, they asked me to make sure all the bags were mine and off we went. Customs didn’t bother me yay!

I was staying with a dear friend in Kasarani so yeah Thika Road baby! wah that road is beautifully done. My stay was awesome, met up with tweeps and bloggers. Hooked up with old friends, went out, chilled and basked in laziness 101, met some crooks but generally it was awesome!

Shiro thanks for letting me stay with you and Peter thanks for your beautiful car. Amazing that the people that come through for me are people I have met online over the years.

I need to catchup with my favourite reads pole pole. I have missed you my blogging family…
