Breakfast II…

 

Yes, breakfast is important,
But, being honest,
I’m not keen on it,
At times, I get started for the day,
Put it off for later, but I forget…
Other times I’ve nothing to eat…
But, when I have some breakfast special,
I really delight in having it…

I Thankful for the special breakfast mornings I’ve had over ladies fellowship. In such mornings, breakfast is more than just a cup of tea and something to go with it…

Not Everyday….

 

It’s not every day you:

Go dine at a four star,
Have a four figure priced meal,
Have a several courses meal,
Are spoilt of foods choice,
Have it fork and knife style,
Are served/serve self to point of ‘no more please….’

When you have a day with all that,
Sample all you can, savor every moment,
On such occasion, forget watching calories…

Breakfast…

 

Breakfast…
A meal taken first,
At a day’s start,
Breaking some hours’ fast,
After a night’s rest,
Of a day’s meals, said to be most important,
For one’s day energy start….

Ladies Annual Breakfast…The Day…

 

It’s a day/morning eagerly looked forward to. This year, the day turned to be Sunday 27th November… The event set to happen at one of the best land mark hotels in the city, the Sarova Panafric Hotel.

The day dawned,
The D day..
Early I arose,
Well I prepared,
All very excited,
For the day ahead

…I set out for the Hotel as we agreed to meet early, a while before the function began, just to ensure all was well…before the guests arrived…

The venue was beautifully put up, warm and inviting décor all around saying volumes…

As soon as attendees settled, breakfast started being served as early as before 8a.m, and everything was in plenty…Fruits, Juices, Beverages, Cakes, Breads, Cakes, Meats …all in their varieties…They kept flowing for the entire morning as the function progressed…

The moment came, the prime time for our speaker of the day, a renowned Woman of God. The Word she spoke was the message of the day, meant for such a time like this…

All went as planned. Soon it was guest leaving at their own pleasure..

For some of us, those in the organizing team, it was almost an all day event, Breakfast turned lunch and way past lunch hour…Definitely a day wonderful and well spent.

With the Ladies’ Annual breakfast happening,
It is a wrap on the ladies events for the year…

Thank You Lord for the far that you’ve seen and brought us through……
In a celebratory mood…we joyfully sung Don Moen’s ‘We’ve come to Bless Your Name’

Laziness Is…

 

Early you awake, but you choose not to get up,
You take time to snooze some, keeping warm,
Before you know it, time’s so gone…you arise…
Things to do, you put off for an undefined later…
That makes a slow day’s start…

Such may define Laziness….

So Fast…

 

The Year is coming to an end, and so fast, it appears…I can hardly believe that it’s already less than 10 (ten) days to end of November!

Yesterday was the 3rd Sunday of November, already 3rd Sunday into the Family month…Next Sunday, 27th November, is a very significant date on the Ladies Ministry Calendar, when we’ll be having our annual Ladies Breakfast at Sarova Panafric Hotel. It’s a day to look forward to…That means we’ll be missing service at Church, as we have a ladies’ service at the Hotel, as we fellowship over Breakfast…Gladly, Family Sunday is set for 11th December, hence there’s at least a Sunday for the fun at Church…before the Family Sunday D-day

November…Family Month…!

 

November is a month to be looked forward to, on Parklands Baptist Church Calendar, right from the beginning of the Year. It’s the month dubbed ‘Family Month’, goes on to ‘Family Week’ in the last week November which may flow into first week of December, finally culminating on ‘Family Sunday’ on the first or second Sunday of December.

It’s a month filled with fun activities. Our usually very lively Church becomes all the more exciting and celebratory mood is all over. The Church Décor goes a notch higher as every family, with their color, goes ahead to decorate a section of the Church, where ‘Family Members’ sit during service to cheer on the family as the competitive activities are slotted in at some point during service.

Sunday, 6th November, saw the launch of this year’s ‘Family Month’. Unfortunately, I didn’t make it to Church on that day, thanks to work related matters I had to attend to. On the day Family Day is launched, congregants are to choose family to belong to. Each family is identified by a color and a name. The colors are usually, Red, Green, Yellow, Purple and Blue, while the name to go with the color changes each year based on what the Church Year Theme has been.

Having missed the launch of family Month, I felt real bad missing out all the fun!

Come last Sunday, 13th November, I got to Church, and was yet to choose which family to belong to this time round. Last year, I was in the Red team, going by the name ‘Beryth’ : Lord our Covenant, which turned out to be the winning team. I tremendously enjoyed myself last year, being part, and playing part of the family through and through. Given that my wardrobe is quite red, I had red attire throughout the month/ all Sundays. I was very red…’Lady in Red’ head to toe, come the Family day.

On Sunday, I was in a green dress and so I chose to be with the Green team…Yesterday, I had to buy a green scarf, as to have something green in color besides my bracelet.…With Green accessories, I was good to go…for today Sunday 20th November…It’s just like me to fully participate, be and feel part of something I choose…So today I settled for the green team, I didn’t feel like changing….

The Green team is going by the name ‘Bethel’ : God’s House…. I love that…brings to mind the ‘Don’t you know your body is the temple of the Lord verse…’

The competitive activities and questions /team answer session were so fun filled. They so livened up my day which had otherwise started at a low note…

I was alert in good time; however it turned out to be a chilly rainy morning, one of those days you wonder whether to arise or just keep warm in bed. But the thought of just lazing in bed or around the house on a Sunday morning doesn’t go well with me…I got out of bed despite the weather, prepared myself and headed to Church for first service which usually begins at 8:30a.m. I stayed in  for fisrt part of second service which begins at 11:30a.m; at least to experience the Family Month celebrations…could have wanted to stay in Church for all service and even till late afternoon, but couldn’t since I was to work later in the day.

All in all, I’m so glad to have been to Church today….

Only By Grace II…

 

In life’s twists and turns,
Where unpleasant happens,
Bringing one down and low with miseries…

Only God’s divine grace,
Fully restores…

Turning…:

Defeats to Victories,
Losses to gains,
Messes to Messages,
Tests to Testimonies,
Trials to Triumphs,
Weaknesses to strengths…

To God Be the Glory…
For all that He does…
Out of His love…

Thank You Lord for Grace, in all it’s sufficiency…

Only By Grace…

 

Circumstances push you to the edge,
Leading to situations you deeply dread,
Positivity becomes such a challenge…

‘Why me?’ ‘How now?’…
Becomes inevitable to wonder….

Only by God’s divine grace,
Can you boldly pause and ponder,
‘Why not me?’ ‘What now?’ …
