And it’s Easter! Who would have thought? It came so early but hey, our Saviour is already on trial and awaiting the gruesome sacrificial death that will save the world from sin (yeah, yeah, be all theological about the dates and stuff. Jesus died nevertheless!).
Happy Good Friday, lovelies, I pray the death of Christ causes us to also die to every sin so that we may resurrect with him as a new creature.
I appreciate you more because of the road I’ve traveled. My story brought me to you and I wouldn’t revise a word of my past if it led me anywhere but to your door.” —Aaron Polson
I know I say thank you always but I wanted to use today to do an extended version because the love you have been pouring out to me is so massive. I’d also like to give you an update on my life as I promised.
You recall how I started the year, empowered to start pursuing things I wanted to do? Well, February came with a blow that knocked me down with lovesickness, lol. I was victorious?. There certainly ain’t no grave that can hold my body down (Jesus did not die for this).
I think 2019 in itself is a wake-up season for me and has decided to unravel in phases with some realities hitting me hard.
I suddenly realized I wasn’t young anymore. Not agewise but in maturity. Not living with mom and dad no more, having to pay for some bills myself. It might be silly but the biggest blow has been having to decide what I will eat and how to get it. The SMS I hate with passion are now ones from “access alert” that diligently reminds you of your ailing bank account.
I know I will get a hold of this adulting game but it has just been overwhelming.
I went on an apartment hunt and mehnnnn, that is a story for another day. Kudos to all who have transitioned successfully.
Your baby has been true to her resolve to start new things this year. She has successfully done a few and in due time she will share. The most exciting was when I was given the privilege to perform a spoken word at my church. I never foresaw myself doing anything in front of that grand church. How the pastor noticed me and asked me to write and perform still baffles me but in the end, it was a glorious encounter. Y’all, call me Afiya the poet???.
Afiya the poet.
And I have a biggggggggg news!
I just started work at my dream hospital! I can’t tell y’ all how excited I am! I look forward to this new chapter with eagerness. It’s gonna be fun.
Heartfelt hugs to all my readers. I want to say thank you for the much-needed encouragement, support, and prayer. Afiya says is doing so well than I ever anticipated and it’s shocking. Your feedback has been so encouraging and messages I wake up to every day makes me wanna do more.
It seems like just yesterday but so soon it’s been 7 months since we started this journey. The blog has a following of 31 people currently and it makes my heart smile…
I love the way you support me.
I pray my words to continue to give hope, comfort and ultimately let you know that you are not alone. I am praying to be able to be more vulnerable to share my life with you all. Still wrapping my mind around being a blogger and a writer (am I? Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes… lol, it will sink in but let’s have some patience ok.) I promise to work hard to bring you amazing content.
I love you. I can’t say that enough. I try to convince myself I don’t need you but I know I am deceiving myself. I need you, I need your love, I need your smile, I need your reading, I need your comments, I need need need you. Once again, thank you…
When you see me smile, know that you are a reason…
Stay tuned for more…
