Hey guys,

How are you doing? Hope your week has started off good. Mine has. I am totally loving work. Absolutely. Thank God. so yes, I had a really good weekend and I I’ll just give you a summary of how each day went. But before I do this, I wanna say thank you to all of you guys for ensuring I had a lovely birthday. Thank you and God bless you richly!!! xoxo

Friday

At about 5pm or so, my colleague randomly informed me of a group that was meeting later that evening somewhere in VI and invited me to join them. I was reluctant at first and then he went into details of how they are involved with Charity work and I bought what he was selling. Ever heard of ‘This is How We Do’ or ‘Soup Kitchen’ or ‘Bake for Change’? Yea, they are the people behind these initiatives.

I was not really up for going out that evening as I was pretty inappropriately dressed (Fridays are supposed to be dress down days but yours truly went to work in my full legal regalia of white and black). By the time the day was over, I had a small stain on my sleeves and I just wanted to get out of the white shirt but boy, I’m really glad I did. Aside of the really great reason behind us meeting (Charity work), it was also good seeing other like-minded young people who took out time on a Friday evening to talk about helping others. It was really good indeed! I’m really looking forward to getting more involved and getting more people involved as well.

Saturday

I was home chilling, cooking, taking mom to the tailor’s and just generally having a very relaxed day.

Sunday

I went to my parents’ church, which turned out better than I thought (I dread going there and I shall give you gist about this later). I went home, changed and met up with a friend. Later in the afternoon, I was on my way to Astroturf to watch my Law firm do great damage to and destroy the morale of their opponent in a 3-1 victory. It was actually 4-1 but a goal was disqualified because in a 5 man team game, headers are not allowed :S.

As soon as our game was over, I drove off to Eko Hotel to see a play called ‘Love is’. I totally enjoyed it! Nikki Laoye, Zizi Cardow, Yinka Davies and Timi Dakolo were all part of the cast. It was a dance drama which was so moving. Basically, it was a journey through people in the search of the meaning of love. After much wondering, pondering, toiling, searching, the conclusion was found in 1 Corinthians 13 and the play ended with these words…God is love; Love is God. I especially loved the fact that it was not your typically Christiany play yet, it came to such a conclusion in the most profound manner.

Yup, I had a good weekend!

That’s all folks (for now)

And another one: Birthday Post!

Hello people,

It’s another 20th day of February and yes, it is my birthday!!! Woohoo!!!

I’m thankful for the love of God, my family, my true friends and all of you, mwah! God bless you all. I am very grateful to God for His mercies from my last birthday till today. He has been faithful. A lot has happened and through it all, I am standing, by His grace!

This is my best song in the world. It summarises who I am and I’d like to have it played/sung at every important occasion in my life (even the one that I will have no control over).

In Christ alone my hope is found;
He is my light, my strength, my song;
This cornerstone, this solid ground,
Firm through the fiercest drought and storm.
What heights of love, what depths of peace,
When fears are stilled, when strivings cease!
My comforter, my all in all—
Here in the love of Christ I stand.

In Christ alone, Who took on flesh,
Fullness of God in helpless babe!
This gift of love and righteousness,
Scorned by the ones He came to save.
Till on that cross as Jesus died,
The wrath of God was satisfied;
For ev’ry sin on Him was laid—
Here in the death of Christ I live.

There in the ground His body lay,
Light of the world by darkness slain;
Then bursting forth in glorious day,
Up from the grave He rose again!
And as He stands in victory,
Sin’s curse has lost its grip on me;
For I am His and He is mine—
Bought with the precious blood of Christ.

No guilt in life, no fear in death—
This is the pow’r of Christ in me;
From life’s first cry to final breath,
Jesus commands my destiny.
NO POWER OF HELL, NO SCHEME OF MAN
CAN EVER PLUCK TEMI FROM HIS HAND
TILL HE RETURNS OR CALLS ME HOME
HERE IN THE POW’R OF CHRIST I’LL STAND!

I also like to thank my parents each birthday for their love and for bringing me up. I have been such an expensive child to raise, lol. Love you mom and dad.

Loads of love,

Temiville.xoxo
