My dad passed away last week.
We were all in a state of shock. My kids hadn’t had a chance to see him since February. School, studies and exams have been taking up all their time. I wanted to bring them over to his place during the June holidays but it’s too late. It’s my biggest regret.
Daddy loved us all and really doted on his 4 grandchildren. My kids and my sisters kids. The kids were distraught too. All of us were. We miss him so much.
His passing actually, was the way he would have wanted.
He doesn’t want to be wheel chair bound or unable to eat his favourite food or unable to see or paralysed. God is good. Dad lived life to the fullest all the way til the night he went. He’s even been meeting up with old friends he’d not seen in ages, from the start of this year onwards.
The week before he died, his old friends happened to bring forward a gathering where they had a big party and dancing and for the first time in years, he had the energy to dance with mom.. and amazingly, he didn’t feel tired.
We cry for ourselves. We are happy for him as he’s now in heaven with Jesus whom he loves so dearly.
What would he be doing, I keep wondering. I know heaven’s a beautiful place. When I was really very down, crying to myself while walking home from work, God gave me a glimpse of my own home up there. It’s not a mansion. It’s a palace which is beyond luxurious. The entire floor’s an unbroken expanse of perfect rose quartz as is the roof. The walls are pure , perfect, unbroken moonstone. It’s beyond anything I could even imagine.
Then it occured to me, this doting grandpa would be with his waiting 5th grandchild. The baby I miscarried and never had a chance to hold. That baby would now be about 1 year old plus, if things progress in heaven like they do here on earth. My little one would be keeping grandpa, my dad, very very busy.
One day, when my journey here’s over,I’ll be with them.
Dad completed his race with aplomb. He’s cheering the rest of us on.
I love you daddy! See you later. :D

The sole of my shoe fell off while I was walking. I slipped and fell. The pain was excruciating. I couldn’t get up. A passerby helped me up.
I sprained my ankle and hurt my knee. It wasn’t bleeding but the joint felt wonky . My leg hurt but I love running and was really worried that my knee felt slightly out of place. Weakened. No worries. I planned to go to the a&e in church, also known as the miracle service held every Saturday 7pm.
That was 2 days ago.
Today, at the service, I went out for prayer. It so happened they had the bone alignment prayer today. I went for it and an elderly little lady prayed for me.
God works in amazing ways. After she prayed for me, my knee felt normal. Just like that . It might seem like a little thing to most but to me, it is a wonderful miracle.

My first bite into this delightful chocolate egg was pure delight.
Delicious milk chocolate filled with sweet liquid candy.
The creamy chocolate shell gave way to what looked just like egg white with it’s yellow yolk , but taste wise; it had the sugar rush of cotton candy.
It is addictive. Sinful. But hey, YOLO
Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter according to Prada this year. Enjoy!
