Hey guys, how have you been? How was your Christmas celebrations? Mine was okay. I got invited to have a typical British Christmas Lunch at the home of the ministers in charge of my church so Christmas day wasn't so bad.
Lately i have been feeling out of my element, i didn't want to go out, i didn't want to watch movies or do anything. I have been feeling sorry for myself and worrying about what would happen to me very soon if a miracle doesn't happen. I didn't want to even go to church today but i am so glad i did.
Today's reading was about Joseph (the earthly father of Jesus) running away from Herod with Mary and Baby Jesus and living in Egypt then in Nazareth afterwards. For the first time in my life, i realised that Jesus and his parents at that time were refugees. I was like 'oh my goodness'. They ran away to save the life of Jesus. The reading seem befitting at this time when some people are having so much issues with countries taking care of refugees.
Then came some shockers for me. A member of my church was called up and she was asked some questions. As i listened to her story, every sorry spirit in me started to disappear. Things might not look too rosy for me but at least my story is not that bad. She had to leave her country Zimbabwe, her family and her 3 year old daughter so that she can protect her life and their lives. Just because she was standing up for justice. Even though she has been here for almost 15 years, she has not had it easy. Right now she says she receives no support from the home office and is on the list of people who are to be deported.
Another guy from Sudan who is not a member of my church also told his story and how he had to run away from sudan to save his life and had to pass through the desert just to finally reach the UK. He also said the same thing about the Home Office and how badly they are treating him and others but said that people have been nice to him and even though he is a muslim he finds that Christians are very nice to him.
Hearing their stories made me appreciate all that i have and i am going through. It is not as easy as i want it to be but i know it can only get better. What i feel is too complicated and hard for me, i trust that God would make a way and when it is at the perfect time.
The lesson here is that no matter how bad you think you have got it, someone has it worse than you. So be thankful for everything you have and are passing through.
So it is time for another lazy geh post and as usually the pictures come from my phone. I just spent about 20 minutes deleting over 300 pictures from my phone and i still need to delete more. All the whatsapp group i am currently in are not helping my phone storage at all...
Since i have finally decided to loosen my over 3 months braids and i know the damage that i might have caused i needed to remind myself of good hair practice. I am sure that some of you would have screamed and said 'you carried your braids for 3 months?!' However i had no choice.
Hey guys, it has been such a long time since i stopped by but it was not without good reason. I had an epic exam today and it was one that i needed every cell in my body to all cooperate and concentrate. It was an Epidemiology and basic statistics examination and for those who are familiar with statistics know that the thing ain't easy mehn. My brain at a point couldn't take anymore i had to even shut down for some hours. I thank God that the exams was okay. At least i didn't have a panic attack and though i couldn't answer the questions to a 100% at least i wrote something down. Now it is all in God's hands...
Anyway while browsing through some online articles i came across this pictures of a certain celebrity, Vicky Pattinson. Unfortunately i have no idea what she does but she has been in a lot of articles on dailymail.com lately.
I love the simplicity of the gown and how she paired it with the leather jacket and shoes....
Hey Guys, i have got great news. I officially joined the avon team today.....Yaaaayy!! I can't wait to start ordering loads of stuff for myself and to give to people. I have seen so many perfect items for Christmas gifts at really great prices.
Amber Rose is really beautiful. I have never appreciated her beauty because her fashion style is weird and she has too many tattoos but recent pictures of her in Paper magazine has left me totally amazed.
For those who don't know her, she is a model, ex stripper who got really famous for dating Kanye West and was married to Wiz Khalifa. Here are more pictures of her channeling known feminists:
