I actually teared up watching Oluchi hug Rulani goodbye with both of them in tears on ANTM last week Thursday. I knew I missed real real sisterly hugs and talk. And you see these girls above? They know how to give and receive the best hugs. Especially Olaedo and Cheech and Soul Soeur and infact everyone!!! *tears* My mainest forever girls. I truly really miss you girls. Le sigh.

But God doesn’t leave us without a witness. Hehehehe. As Jesus would have it, I got a good dose of hugs yesterday. You see, two of my fave bloggers also live in Abuja and while I had met JMAD before, I was yet to meet Femmetotale. So we made plans to hook up on Sunday.

image

Food, Faith and Fun

I had a Sunday of my life yo!!! Aside them putting me on the spot as a ‘married girl’ (smh at you ladies), it was just an amazing time. We met up in JMAD’s house and she was such a dream host tho she knows how to harass. And we had another very delighful and abs beautiful drama-full babe Oma join us. Best part of it all was that are all absolutely Fabulous Christian ladies.

image

When you hang out with Christian ladies, you just come out feeling very Christian lol. 
Plus my JMAD is a hugger and a half and before long, I’ll get FT to the huggies club too. Plus we toasted to the most hilarious stuff. Twas almost a prayer session lol.

image

That said, it was abs awesome meeting y’all. Can’t wait for our next outdoor hangout. JMAD has this crazy idea which I’m kinda liking and buying so… Hehehehe. Thanks girls. Especially for the hugs… And Oma, we could totally be friends!!! Yup JMAD pass the message. Ok JMAD made me watch Nigerian Idols sponsored by Etisalat. Tacky. Tacky. Tacky, especially with all the ‘oil money’ lol. Sorry to say. I also decided to see the highly acclaimed 12years a slave. Look, I LOVE Lupita especially cos she has a very spirited spirit (whatever that means) plus she’s a delightful sport to interview (loved the Post-Oscars interview with Ellen)

image

The Post-Oscar interview. She has a laugh that is alive

Plus she gives the best speeches (Your dreams are valid). Obviously intelligent young woman. Plus she went to Yale. Hehehehe. So I said lemme see this Lupita movie ooo. 55mins into the movie, patience disappeared, goodluck wearing thin, and way TOO MUCH Chinwetel in EVERY scene, then Lupita shows up in the cotton field. Ugh!!! I’m sorry but I didn’t last 20mins after that. I don’t even know what to say so lemme just say I don’t like slaves/slavery movies. Same reason I didn’t last 15mins seeing Django Unchained. It was just too sad and unhappy. So I didn’t see more than 4 scenes that featured our idol Lupi (lol) before I turned it off. Sleep was even calling my name and initials while watching it. I’ll just chill till she stars in some romantic comedy that sees her throwing her very spirited laugh and energy around. I’m sure someone is wondering what I was expecting seeing the name is 12 years a slave… Well somehow I didn’t think start to finish would be clearly about class, caste, slavery, proletariats and bourgeoisies. Abeggi… So as I ranted on Twitter, some kind hearted sweerie tells me the message was that of hope. I suppose. But I think I prefer HOPE as portrayed in The Pursuit of Happyness, thank you. Btw I also didn’t see that movie till the end. Too teary. Lemme just stop this Slavery thing. I’m with that ‘white’ ‘celeb’ who says she studied enough slavery in history class than to be watching slaves biko nu. Romance, Comedy or best still Romantic Comedy ANYDAY yo!!!
Just to be clear, Lupi acted great in the movie. I hear especially at the end, it was brilliant!!! (Patience Lord). I’m just not into suffer head movies. Chinwetel suffered no be small. I guess I also learned TRUST in the movie. He trusted the strange people who now sold him into slavery. (I hope that’s what happened ooo). Anyways, now you know which kinda movies never to get E’ to watch. #JumpNpass
In all though, Sunday was a real amazing day. Thanks to everyone who made it awesome. Been meeting quite a few of my Abuja peeps who I had invited to church, some off my blog. How it was only Chi I managed to take a picture with beats me.

image

I hugged this babe so much she had to commend me lol

Anyhoos since some are becoming members, there’ll be more photo ops.
But life has had its fair share of downs though. Like I was gisting JMAD yesterday, peculiarly, I have WILLED myself to tears which have eluded me. Now no doubt, I’ve turned on the water works a bit but I realise they have been more about other people than me. Just listening to or reading someone share their challenges with me, I’m all teary eyed. Then when something hits me that’s personal, I just can’t cry for myself. Several times, and no kidding here, I have tried to cry just to ‘feel normal’ but no dice ooo. At those instances, I now hear God. Most times He just tells me OK what will the tears solve? Then instantly, He gives me a Word. At that instant, life becomes surreal!!! How a WORD assumes life and becomes real and breathing to one is inexplicable. I truly can’t explain but I feel an incredible blanket of loving from my Sugar Daddy. On my bb status, I have ‘E’… God’s biggest deal’ and I can say I understand that. I feel really really privileged.

image

E' Favoured and Blessed

The doors he opens, the people I meet, the responsibilities I have, the testimonies He gives, tz absolutely awesome. Cap it up with a Word for every single season!!! I truly have a Sugar Daddy.
Awesome feeling…
Ok lemme brush on the subject of ‘rehearsing on stage’ for a minute. First heard this term from my girl Ru. Basically,it just means (in the Faith that is) waiting for a problem to come upon you BEFORE you start praying about it. I mean, why don’t you just keep building on your faith even before the challenges come? I was in a theatre group back in UI. Imagine that we don’t do no rehearsals until the day of performance, we now come and start rehearsing on stage. What a flop!!! Tz the same way we flop when we have been all slack on our faith and then tz when the trouble comes that we start running helter skelter. Tz just wrong. The best time to prep for war is in time of peace. Simples. I’ll tell you my own ROS story. This year, I’m ashamed to say I’ve fallen ill 4/5 times starting right from Jan 1. Before then, I truly can’t recall when last I fell ill. So imagine sickness coming back to back. And guess what, they always came just before something major was about to happen. By the second time, shouldn’t I have gathered all my faith and scriptures on health and swallowed till even the devil go fear. Such that when he comes with his package, he takes it back cos he meets my shield of faith brandishing. No ooo. Tz when I start feeling the symptoms I start praying. That works somehow yup but sweethearts, Jesus didn’t die for that. Mehn, was sick last week and after I spent money I didn’t care to spend on drugs, I knew it was time to actively find, confess and overdose on the Word as per my health. Now health totally restored, I wake up each morning speaking over my body. I’m done mehn. Jesus didn’t die for this… He died that I may enjoy perfect health. Zezezeze. So FABers, in every area of your life, no rehearsal on stage please.
Almost the same way I feel about our Nigerian situation… Plenty rehearsals AFTER the show sef. The security situation is really something and truly, tz a case of God for us all. That’s why I recommend prayers especially esp from you and I. Face it, some of us have tied hands except to pray.

image

Not everyone will step out to protest and frankly, not every protest would yield much. But hey, we can labour in prayers. Pray for large doses of wisdom for our leaders and advisers. Pray for ‘Daniels come to judgment’ They know exactly what to do (cos you can see pure naivete sometimes) and they have the courage to do it. Pray for high level confusion in the enemies’ camp. Keep praying for the safety and rescue of the kidnapped school girls and indeed keep speaking peace to those highly volatile areas and infact every where in Nigeria. Pray for those still in the hospitals and those who have lost loved ones in all the numerous attacks all over Nigeria. Look sweetie, don’t just tweet it. Don’t just discus it at round tables and over lunch. Truly spare some of your prayer time for them. I saw this post by Ife and I was tripped.

image

Ife just has the best updates on SM sites walahi

I think we talk about praying more than we actually pray. Especially that wisdom prayer. And that’s all I’ll say on this matter before I say something really wrong.
Oh BTW, the second stanza of our Anthem is an incredible prayer. Feel free to pray it too.

I’ll just sign off with this…
So what is the price of a ring?
Sooo many things some ladies would give to land that ring and what some guys would do to have their ring accepted…
Some pay the right price, land the ring and enjoy the marriage of their dreams.
Some pay the absolutely wrong price, sometimes land a ring and end with a Boko haram and just live in hell…
At least if you don’t know the right price, you can learn…
Which is why this month’s LDM is tagged The Price of a Ring…

Love Dating and Marriage Seminar

This Sunday May 11, 2014
Right in Abuja, David’s Christian Centre.
Petrus hotel on Agatu street off Gimbiya street. Area 11, garki Abuja.
LDM is an acronym that stands for Love Dating and Marriage. Tz a once a month, actually 2nd Sunday of the month in Abuja DCC at 4.30pm so you can go to your church and join us in the evening. Tz always an incredible time. So you wanna mark your calendars if you are in Abuja.

Ok let me get some work done this beautiful Monday.
I thought I’ll blog some leadership tips I’m learning from DCC Abuja especially for my readers who are workers in Church and wanna do more for God. Awesome stuff. And tz amazing how leadership tips from the church can also work in our secular jobs too.
Some other time though…
May 11, 2014. Sunday 4.30pm.

Oh I almost forgot this. Just have to share it. So one of my mentees, an amazing amazing girl, Chinwe who looked plenty to me for inspiration and encouragement in school just graduated with a FIRST CLASS.

image

Congrats Chinwe love

Feels like my own personal victory. Just being such an inspiration to someone who now outshines you is incredible. Go girl!!! I’m sooo happy for you. Got me all teary eyed on Friday when her result was released. And she was the ONLY ONE!!! Whoop!!! She was just a year under me in Sociology and my, we did countless tutorials, she kept in touch even after I graduated, didn’t stop asking me questions and I’m just glad that the whole tension of waiting in prayers and praise to see how she’ll cross from a 2-1 to 1st class in final year will go (which was exactly same for me). It was really really a miracle.
Congrats girl. Work that first class babe… Whether tz for further studies or work, it opens doors. Of course that’s cos it is a gift straight from God. Whoop whoop. Mega happy for you. My mentoring wasn’t in vain. Hehehehe.
And on that final note, toodles…
Stay FAB darls…
Favoured and Blessed.
And Happy stepping into all things FAB this May.

Priceless. Kathryn. Ah!!! Tz not just you but u and ur hubby I wanna celebrate. I recall one day Nnanna called me when I was just about to be over whelmed to tears with some wedding plans (the white this time). I know it was God that led him to call me cos I didn’t even tell him anything. He just said after asking me how the plans were going ‘my dear, the one you can do, please do. The one you can’t do, leave. It won’t stop you from being married…’And he prayed a prayer that God answered (You gotta call me for that in camera lol). Then kathryn…aside from being a healthy christian friend whose company is always uplifting and enriching, u know how to give me good counsel… Recall the dreads advice. I was going to take off my dreads before the wedding cos… Well long story. We met in church as I left the ladies and when I told her, she COMMANDED me not to try it and gave me great counsel. Then she made me get a ‘sexier’ lingerie than I had and went ahead to also gift me one incase I didn’t buy what she said and gave me some ‘rated 18+ counsel’. Let’s just say you have a special place in Aku m’s heart looooool. Thanks for all the company too darling. You have become a sister. Meeting you this year coloured my world beautiful. You know you gotta work that your blog more in 2014 yeah… Love you girl…

Good for you. I don’t even know the words to say!!! What will I say to your love abeg?!?! Good thing you are here for the long run!!! You are an absolute TEN. Hopefully we will attend a wedding under two years (if you are ready) and I will be very there dancing you into this wonderful world. Love you girl. And thanks for being this sweet lovely sister to me.

(Giant sparkle in orange. Berny with me)
Berny baby!!! Pharm berny. You got me tearing up in church on Sunday as we chatted. You have the sweetest way of reminding me of why I should blog. You remain one of my biggest cheerleaders. I recall the day you walked up to me in the library in Imoran to say how my blog had been a blessing. You still haven’t stopped. God bless you for me berny. And rest assured you and yours are in my prayers. We just can’t stop testifying now can we? Hope your dance is ready ooo… You must beat Oga ooo!!! Love you girl and from the depth of my heart, thank you!!!

This is too emotional to write. And I’m sure it is really long as I am just typing away on my bb without checking.
My last (for this part one) person was supposed to be the one man I am proud to call DADDY who has been such a HUGE blessing to me that I can never get tired of mentioning and loving up on him. If you are a regular FAB’er, you should know him. I am too drained emotionally to do a befitting thank you so I’ll roll it over to the next. I have to be alert to write about him…

So the Devil talks to YOU?

So the devil talks to you?

devil

I had this conversation with someone. But lemme back up a bit.

Ibadan-20120131-02702

Last week Monday, we had a prayer meeting at Kado estate. Afterwards, I was walking with my girl Mimi to a place where I could get a cab home easily. Recall that I am still new in Abuja and so I still need help every once in a while. Tz easy getting around though cos Abuja is more organized, relative to gidi that is. Anyways, a Church member graciously offers to give me a ride and so I hop in. He had some American preacher on his screen and we were enjoying the ambience and gisting. Naturally we gisted around the lines of how I have been enjoying Abuja and stuff. Amongst other things, I told him what happened to me yesterday (being sunday).

You see, I had spent the weekend with JMAD our starship and Somsom her ‘cousin’,

JMAD

and Saturday was a bit of an intense day for me. Too many little things went wrong and I was just too happy to come home and burst into mini tears. The next day Sunday was LDM, Abuja and I knew I wouldn’t go home to return in the evening for LDM jare so I packed a double. In all the packing hoopla, I forgot to transfer money from the Saturday casual bag to the Sunday church bag. So all I had in the Sunday bag was some loose change totaling a grand sum of N140. I realized this only when I was going to give my offering and stuff. How come I didn’t realize it when I boarded a cab to chuch? That was ‘cos I had left home with Somsom who goes to COZA and she graciously paid for the whole trip to my church while she dropped at hers before me. I added the N100 cos the cab man didn’t have change and stuff so I had just N40 left. All the while, I didn’t realize I had no other money ooo. Now I usually have my offering, tithe and any other seed I am sowing in my bible a few days before church. That way I don’t start looking for loose change to drop on Sunday morning abeg. I take my offering very seriously. That day was no exception and so all I had was that. No money for both t.fare and to eat and I was going to get home no earlier than 9pm and it would cost me no less than 2K to do the necessary transport to my friend’s house where I would chill b4 the program, and also to the LDM venue gangan and then back home.

IMG-20130210-00366

So at the point of packaging my offering, tithe and thanksgiving seed, the devil told me ‘Eziaha. You know you don’t have money for tfare so reduce the tithe and then pay it later’ I said err, nope. He said ‘OK pay tithe but you can save the seed for transport and give it next week’ I considered it for a minute and just decided WARRAHECK!!! God can provide for my transport jare lemme not mess with any of my money for God jare. So I dropped all that I had intended to drop.

DSC05018 (This is a real old picture. Happy to run into it)

So as I was gisting the guy who I would call Chuchu for now, the first thing he asked me was ‘So the Devil talks to you? Because he doesn’t talk to me ooo.’ For shizzle!!! I told him ‘Yes the devil talks to me just as he talks to everybody else.’ Heck, he even spoke to Jesus, tempting him. By talking, it doesn’t mean me and am pull seat, siddon dey yarn ooo. No time for that. He drops thoughts and ideas in our hearts and sometimes he speaks through people. (I am sure you know a few LOL).

uuu

Ah the devil is not just a silent one ooo. In fact I do think he is a talkative jare. If he stays silent, then how does he run the earth because he is the god of this natural world and he is working in the hearts of the children of disobedience (unbelievers)and speaking through them ooo. Some stupid people who are oblivious that the devil is speaking through them ooo LMHO

stupid (i absolutely LOVVVVVVE this hahahahahaha)

I felt Chuchu said that to mean something like he is too holy for the devil to talk to him. AKUKO… But when I was done explaining to him, he understood better. The devil goes about talking rubbish, but thankfully God also talks and I have been trained to recognize his own voice too and so I can yield to Him alone.

voice

Like I have heard Joyce Meyer say which I would attempt to paraphrase- we don’t have to be too conscious of the devil and his shenanigans and be all scared, but it would also be foolish to totally ignore the devil. Even the bible advises that we should not be ignorant of the devices of the enemy/devil. The deal is don’t pay him more mind than he deserves. Don’t start over giving him attention jare. But be aware of him jare and be on the offensive. Recently something happened in the life of my friend and she was so scared and I just laughed at the devil cos I was standing in the place of prayer with her and I already knew how the end would play out and so I told her ‘babes, let’s not magnify this thing more than normal jare and make the devil start feeling important.’ LUBBISH!!! And when that matter was over I told the devil, you sha know who to try. You know that you can’t try that absolute RUBBISH with me cos it can’t even work, OLODO!

And just incase you are wondering, yes I talk back to him sometimes, how else will I tell him to ‘GO TO HELL’. Sometimes I even stop and laugh at him. But most times, phew, I just ignore him, I just couldn’t be bothered. I am more interested in talking to my Lover Jesus and the Holy Spirit and all the angels that need to be sent on many assignments, one of which was asking them to organize my transport back home without sweating. And just incase you wanna know, someone dropped me off at Berger and paid for the cab that took me straight to the gate of my Jmad’s house.

And lucky for me JMAD had coconut fried rice, vegetable salad and chicken waiting for me as dinner. JMAD is such a sweetheart. That’s why we call her STARSHIP… Muah… And nope baby, you are not a tadpole :p

JMA (na wah ooo Three pictures in one post. i will charge you ooo)

And meanwhile you do realize that part of the devil’s wiles and antics for that situation would have been to make me hold back some of my seed, and then later he will tell me ‘ha ahn, but you dropped a part already na, who says you have to still drop again. Moreover you know that you need this money for so so and so’ and trust me, the devil would have arranged one stupid “so so and so” need that would make it tougher to drop the money at a later time.

My dear, please don’t even be ignorant of his devices jare and the fact that he talks.

Because he does…
