November!

Dear ALian!

We’re here! It’s so good to finally be at the 11th month of the gregorian calendar year.

Am I excited? You don’t know the half of it!

I think this year more than any other my body has broken down too many times. Or maybe it’s because this year I journaled more?

I’ve learnt a lot this year too. I’m glad I can come back to these lessons here.

Let’s pause this train of thought here and ask, do you have a physical journal?

If no, why not? If yes, how did you enjoy using it this year?

Okay, don’t hold the thought. Just scroll down to the comment section and leave me a reply, will you?

I’ll keep my eyes peeled to read from you.

Now that you’re back, today I’m celebrating 12 months of #nosodadrinks. Yayyy. I know. What started as #nosodanovember and became #nocarbonateddrinksdecember has become a lifestyle. And am I even proud? 😂

I want to share my story, but in a subsequent entry.

There’s something else I’ve had at heart to share for a few weeks.

Some Sundays ago, I visited this amazing family blessed with 3 lovely girls. One of them, the last, is under a month. The older two are an inseparable pair and could be mistaken for twins.

I noticed amusingly how the two of them clung to their Father who they called “Papa”. And strangely how the eldest girl continually stretched herself out on her father’s laps and would even try to push her younger sister away from her father.

Now, here’s the interesting part, no matter how many times her lovely eldest sister tried to push her away, the beautiful second daughter, by simply holding her father’s thumb was never successfully pushed.

Of course, you’d understand that her little fingers would do a not-so-great job of holding her father’s thumb, her Father held her… but she was resigned to never leave, to not be separated from her Papa, not even for her older sister.

As I sat watching, Abba told me “You have to decide to come to me and never leave… That nothing, not even entitled older siblings (other Christians) will make you separate from me.”

Did I want to cry? Oh, yes! Because, omo! The list of things that (in my head) are piled up against my disposition as God’s favourite can be sky-high.

This may be you… And if it is, I write to remind you this month “Gum body with Jesus and no let any pesin disconnect you“.

God loves you soooo much. This November, He’ll be proving it daily, all you have to do is stay connected.

As a parting gift here’s your affirmation for the week. This one, I love with every part of my soul.

Playlist of the week?

      1. Virtual Journal? Hm🤔
        If I have to keep any virtual journal,it would be becuase i wasn’t close to the physical one because I don’t want to lose anything oh,ICloud may fail somebody oh🤣 But I wrote some pages on my notepad when I didn’t write on my book and later I copied it all out.😂

        But is there an app for this?

      2. 😂
        Yay. Virtual journals are helpful for spontaneity. Sometimes I see something and quickly want to capture the emotions I felt at the moment, and there’s the advantage of voice recordings when I’m too tired to type, or Google assistant.

        There are several apps, some are purely journals, others include options for meditation and self awareness.
        I can’t remember the names of any at present, though.
        Currently, I use my phone’s notepad. It serves me just as well.

        Physical journals are still my best bet though.
