Thanksgiving Sunday

It’s been a while since I’ve posted and I kind of have withdrawal symptoms… Made me realise how much I love writing for 9MonthsandWaiting. Last week was a tough week for me as I was really ill and left my house only once to visit the doctor. Thank God I am restored to full heath and back to the normal Kemi!

Even though it was a tough and challenging week, there were so many things I had to be grateful for. First of all, my amazing King took it upon himself to work with his design people and come up a spanking new logo for me! We had spoken about creating something a few weeks back but, I didn’t really move on it because I was not 100% about what I’d want other than the need for yellow to be incorporated. I love the fact that the logo is not only footprints but also looks like a heart and two people coming together. That may just be me but I definitely see more than just footprints! It reminds me of how there is so much more to life than what meets the eye. Ok, I may be getting a bit carried away but, I am just so super excited! ย Let me know your thoughts on the logo, what do you see?


I am also so grateful for my amazing ย sisters (including friends who have become sisters) who took time out to make sure my husband I and I were never hungry and I was always comfortable. It’s been almost 10 days that I have not cooked – I feel like I’ve committed a crime! My husband also finally got the opportunity to show me his cooking skills after almost 5 years and I have to give it to him… he can actually cook! I am so blessed.

Every first Sunday of the month is Thanksgiving at my church – I love it! It’s a time of praise, jubilation and dance to thank the Lord for seeing us through another month and making it to the next. I cannot take for granted His grace and blessings as each day is a gift. I woke up on Sunday having made up my mind that I would not be going to church because I felt a little rough and didn’t want to push myself, especially as the department I serve in is primarily manual work. I remembered that during the week, my friend- the worship leader at our church told me that she would be singing a rendition of Travis Greene ‘Made a Way’ and was instantly excited as this song had really been ministering to me whilst I was sick. That excited was soon taken away when she sent me a text to say the song had changed. I thought to myself “to go, or not to go?” Then I realised that my decision to attend church should not be based on a song as church is about spending time in His presence, hearing the word, fellowship and thanking him for all He has done and is yet to do.



I made it to church and boy, was I happy I did! My Pastor spoke about finding rest in God and it reminded me of the peace, the confidence, reassurance I have in what He is doing ๐Ÿ™‚ As I’ve mentioned in a previous page and for those who know me, I do not dance! It’s like my brain forgets that it is supposed to send messages to my legs! This Sunday was different, I was determined to dance for joy at what God has done. I know in my heart that my miracle is closer than I know and I was thanking Him in advance – dancing like David did. My 6am prayer sister had already told me that she too would be dancing with me and celebrating in advance.

I always get nervous on Thanksgiving Sunday because I sit in the back row of the auditorium and it is the first row to be called to bring our offering to the front of the church. So, imagine me, the person who forgets how to dance, always being the first or second person before a congregation of 400! This Sunday was different, I walked confidently behind my husband and as I got to the front, I slowed down and DANCED! I DANCED! I held up the line and took my time to praise God. My feet felt like jelly but my heart was so full of joy and thanksgiving.

So, as we enter this new month of May, dance and rejoice in Him for what He is doing. Foget about relying on your brian to move your body and focus on the joy in your heart. Have the faith that it will surely come to pass
