I’ve always considered myself very level headed and able to maintain a sober mind during decision making until recently. My parents being away on vacation has taught me a few things but the main lesson I’ve learnt is perspective. Yesterday my baby sister and I went grocery shopping. It was a all fun and laughter, moving from aisle to aisle choosing what we wanted, taking snaps and just enjoying small talk. I noticed that as much as we were not paying attention we bought exactly the same things our parents would get had they been there. We stay away from candy and all unnecessary indulgences and stuck to vegetables and fruits plus other necessities. By the time we got to paying I was in deep thought of how “adult-like” my shopping basket looked. In my mind I was giving myself high-fives because it felt like I had finally figured the concept of adulting. Yes I know that doesn’t sound like a word but to me it is. Adulting is the skill of mastering all acts in life reserved for grown-ups👍😊. I smiled all the way to my car up until a mile away when I noticed my phone was missing.
I freaked out instantly and my mind wondered to worst case scenerios. I called my phone company and they said they couldn’t track it. I started regretting why I had disabled the ‘find my phone’ app. I went back to the store retraced my steps and nada😢😢. All this time my sister was quiet and level headed she was searching ways to find my phone on the web. She was simply a true defination of calm and collected. I gave up and drove us home. As soon as I got home I found a book in the mail about experiencing God in the darkness and instantly I started preaching to myself. I started saying that this was darkness and God was about to let me experience Him and so on and so forth. Here my sister was on the phone talking and after a while she walked up to me and what she said challanged me to the bone. “I just spoke to the store manager they found your phone. I am so dissapointed in you for giving up so fast instead of using your common sense and doing the obvious. Instead of calling the store, you gave up and started a mini series about the devil’s plans. The devil was not the problem here, your foolishness was.” She said as she turned and walked back to the car.
I spent most of the evening all quiet meditating on that rebuke. While I allowed my perspective to be skewed towards the worst case scenario my sister on the other hand took it as just a simple matter that was easy to resolve. How many times has your perspective made you give up on your dreams or miss an opportunity? Before you make the mistake of blaming the devil make sure that you ain’t the problem.
😊😊Well I am very happy I have my phone back but most of all I’m grateful for the lesson that came out of this incident.
Well our family birthday is here yet again. This is the day my parents said “I do” to each other. This year marks 25yrs of marriage for them meaning our family is 25yrs old. I call it our family birthday because that way I don’t feel left out of the love story😊. Yes I know what you are thinking right now but to answer your question, I am that person who finds an excuse to make a party about them😉. Back to the point here people!! In all those years this one is very special to us as a family and more so to my parents. This silver jubilee came with all sorts of silver linings.
In all these years my parents have never gone on vacation without us. Now they’re in London enjoying their sweet romance. Just so you know this means I’m babysitting or rather teenage-sitting😏. I’m amazed at this love story because rarely do people grow in love. It is so easy to stay in love with someone but actually growing in love with them everyday, every year is phenomenal. They had their chances to go and see the world so many times but they always put us first or someone else but because they always acted as a unit they never fell apart. In 25yrs my mum has supported my dad’s vision of being a pastor in ways that many may never know. She prayed him up, dressed him up and loved him through and through for years. My dad made sure that her dream to be a nurse became a reality. Not because she had to work but because she wanted it. He stayed up with her as she studied, cooked for her, made sure bills were paid, took care of us and still took care of the church.
I know I sound like a hopeless romantic but what I have learned in all these years is that God is love. Those times when we had nothing but each other God never left hence our feelings for each other remained intact. When we failed each other and even tried to strangle each other🙄 God was still there so even in our hate, love abided. 25 years might not seem like alot but to us it has been a journey and to our parents it has been a race.
***PS: If you see my parents in London tell them to stop fretting and calling alot. Also make sure they don’t come back until the vacation is over. I’ll tell you the juicy parts of the 25yrs in the next episode❤❤❤
Hold up right there! Did you read the title? Now go back and read it again. Good now you think I’ve absolutely lost my mind. I just finished reading thousands of comments off someone’s instagram. I am sweaty, I have heart palpations and I might also be undergoing emotion overload. It started with a meh feeling, then I was laughing, then angry and finally I’m just dissapointed at how much we invest on things that don’t profit us.
This celebrity posted a very vague post, vaguely describing a moment of faliure and in there was also a very generic apology. To me as a regular stalker😊 (Yes I am a certified stalker) this post was just something I would have overlooked. One because his life is non of my buisness apart from the part I enjoy observing their lives and two because his life does not affect mine in any form or manner. As I spent most of my free time (I should have taken a nap instead) reading those comments I noticed that people were so offended and hurt by this man’s action even though he had failed his family and not the public. This got me thinking of how we allow people to have influence over us just because they’re famous. We have actual soul-ties to celebrities who barely care about us. We have attached ourselves to ships that are sailing in the opposite direction of our destined path because that ships looks brighter than your own. I would understand if this person had done something to disrespect others like maybe being racist or sexist or whatever public offence but he was talking about his personal issues. We have integrated ourselves into other people’s lives that even when a family is going through crisis it ruins your life. Some of us the only thing separating you from the Kardashian family is your last name. You already have assigned yourself a place in their house. SMH!
Anyway now that my rant is over and I’ve exposed my stalking tendancies😉 let me drop some wisdom. All that glitters is not gold. Don’t waste time coveting lives of people just because it is displayed perfectly on camera. Use that time and energy to create a life of your own. Don’t get so caught up in other people’s lives that you miss building your own. Remember if you place yourself into my life most probably as I fight my demons they’ll attack you too because you have made yourself a part of me. Be you and when you feel need to see how
other people’s lives are going borrow my stalker glasses. Now go in peace and sin no more😂😂😂 (Okay that last part I’ve been dying to say for a while)
Yours truly Fire Princess ❤❤❤
I was talking with one of my girls a few weeks ago about the kind of man we would like to marry and I noticed something so interesting. We have been friends for many years and as we grew this list changed. At first it was mostly physical and financial qualities that we cared about most, then we got saved and we wanted a God fearing man but now being saved and cute ain’t enough anymore. We just don’t want you to be saved but we want people with a relationship with God. Not a casual relationship where you flirt with God when you’re lonely or when your life is messed up but a full-time committed relationship.
We live in a time where if you put salvation or God fearing as a prerequisite that you will end up with the fools who say “I am spiritual but not religious.” Baby even demons are spiritual, the question is simple “What is your relationship with God? ” Most ladies are busy making a list of how we want a man who can be a priest in our houses but are you a woman enough to serve the priest?
Can you submit to him as you submit to God? Guys can God entrust you with her life? Are you sensitive enough to the Holy Spirit to hear His will for you?
As soon as you think of it this way you will realize that you don’t want just a saved guy or girl. You want a person who knows God and has an outstanding relationship with Him. A person who is okay with seeking God to get to you. A person who God can entrust your future to. A person that can prophesy over you, guide you,pray over you, declare and decree God’s will over your life, love on you unconditionally and protect you. Yes being saved is not enough🤔🤔🤔
