He [Christ Jesus] gave his life to purchase freedom for everyone. to be testified [to demonstrate that which was already a fact] in due time
1 Tim 2:6
Morning beautiful people… Yes, I have been away for some time now, I agree and I apologize. Life has been beautiful with so much going on at my end, I trust that you are doing way better than I am. Thanks to all who consistently coming on here though, and for first-timers in the house, you’ve missed quite a lot on here. Well, I pray that this blog also helps us see how blessed we are in this life. Amen. Okay, today’s gonna be awesome. A few pictures kinda inspired this post today as I was thinking on God’s kindness. Check out the meanings below: So, I thought to myself, was God being friendly and generous when He sent Jesus to come and do all He did? As presented to me in times past, He never looked “friendly” and “generous”, yeah? I never saw a kind God, but he was always Kind. I just didn’t see and know it. So, to the beautiful pictures I stole from GOOGLE and BING… Check them out and SEE how kind Daddy God was when He gave Christ 😉 I first saw this and I was like…Oi! Chill, was God really like this? It doesn’t feel so, but hey, God is LOVE and He sure felt this way. Hehehehehe!! Yeah, Lao was a Boss. Daddy God was kind redeeming us without thinking about being kind. It’s His nature. He is full of kindness, it is you who sees it and says “wowww! I have a very kind Father”. Our redemption was an act of kindness. We can’t love unless we SEE His kindness shed abroad in our heart. Even scriptures agree… It is when we SEE the kindness of God that our hearts grow to love Him. You want people to love and pleasure in God, show and tell them of His kindness, one He gave without seeking anything in return – UNCONDITIONALLY.
Have a great day thinking on this… Do well telling that you friend and sister how that their father loved them and would always love them without requiring a pay back. In advance, thanks for sharing.

So, I was going through Google Images and I saw a few awesome pictures that tell very well God’s heart for you. Don’t dull it o… Hold on to them. LOL
First was a letter, from your Father, to you…
LOL. POINT A: I’m here to stay. POINT B: Nothing can separate us.
He has placed His Bed in you
[I wish I could say this thing in Yoruba though, it would have been sweeter], He’s at rest.
There is nothing you can do about it, this love doesn’t depend on you yo! He made this decision looooong before your formation.
Nothing… I say, nothing can separate you from what He feels, think and believes of you. NOTHING. Okay, amma make it capital and BIG so you wouldn’t say you can’t see it. LOOL
mehn! we are blessed, very. I’m happy for you as much as I’m happy for me. I’m sure you do not regret stopping by. Have a wonderful day 😉

So, it’s a new week and I’m wondering whether like me, you want to learn something beautiful of your Father this morning. As usual, another round of weekly tidbit speaking His heart to you, His heart of love. I’m sure you’re already blessed and doing wonderful. Today’s post shall be showing us how that we are indeed extravagantly blessed.
We shall be checking out a small story…
It was a sunny Saturday afternoon and my mother, Kelvin, and I were on a long deserved vacation. We had spent the last few months hurrying between doctors’ appointments, the office and my family house in Magodo; so getting some alone time had been close to impossible. I wasn’t sure how long we spent there, just laying by the pool and letting the gentle breeze caress our skins as slow music played in the background.
I remember watching Kelvin crawl slowly towards me right before he put his head on my chest and started to speak in that garbled tone that I didn’t understand but it made me laugh anyways. Kelvin had always been a joy to behold; he was cute, funny, he had this ability to pick something and focus so hard on it, he had strong white teeth and was very playful despite himself. He always had a smile on his face, even just after he had taken bitter medicine; he’d have that small smile with a slight cleft in his chin that deepened as his smile widened.
In retrospect, I should have known not to take my attention off him, even for a little while. I shouldn’t have turned to get him that water bottle he was so desperately pointing at; I shouldn’t have given him that ball. The bottle was in his bag, right beside mine a few feet from our chairs and I didn’t want to trouble Shade, the babysitter. She had been through so much because of me these past few months.
My little baby was crawling determinedly towards the pool trying to catch his little ball. His focus was at the highest possible level. He laughed as he crawled after his ball. As I took the water bottle and turned back to the chair and to my surprise, Kelvin was already drowning and screaming Shade’s name. I couldn’t watch his beautiful face freeze to death, so I dived in to grab him out myself.
The grace of our Father is out of proportion to the fall of man. He loved us before the foundations of the earth but that’s not the deal now. The deal is in the story, Mama Kelvin jumped in to save her son that was calling out to Shade, who was probably fast asleep or in shock. She jumped in to save her son, her own. In same manner, God jumped into humanity to save you, through and in Christ. His love for you always is and always would be. He has got you and would never let you go. Just think on this, you are nowhere else but in His arms and on your cheeks He is continually planting holy kisses of love.
Thanks for going through today’s story, ask questions if any via the comment box, I hope you enjoyed the story, I’m sure you were blessed. Do share this with a “lost” brother or sister today. Enjoy TODAY.
