Happy New month Guys. Can you believe that it’s been 34 days since 2017 started? Time waits for no one indeed.
So let me tell you what I have been up to this year. Think of it as my online edition of “Keeping up with Bisola”. Haha. The last edition was in November. You can read it Here.
Sooooooo in no particular order here are ten things I did in January.
1) Kicked off the year with an awesome crossover service.
My Church rolls into a new year with a service that starts in the evening of 31st and ends in the early hours of the 1st of every year. It was really great. And because it was a Sunday, no Sunday service.
2) Watched part of the inauguration.
Just in case you were on the moon ( how are things there by the way?) then let me be the first to inform you that The United States of America had a new president on the 20th. His name is Donald Trump. For those of us not on the moon, lol. Did you guys watch it? I did oh. I caught bits of Hilary and Bill coming in for the inauguration, and then a lot of the inaugural parade.
I don’t have a lot of love for Donald Trump, but I still got chills watching it. History was being made. Such precision and attention to details. And very organized. Donald Trump looked so angry though. Does he ever Smile? I didn’t like Melania’s attire so much. I loved the color though. Have you noticed that I love blue?
3) Attended a crusade.
Lol. Now this is a big deal because I have never attended a big open air crusade plus Dr. D.K Olukoya was coming to Ibadan. You can imagine the crowd.
Generally, I don’t like attending crusades or big events because the traffic situation is always bad and I don’t like crowds.Whether you have a car or not, you spend hours before getting home. But this one, I just had to go. I got there about three hours earlier.
Lol! And sat down in front oh but could I hardly see the man sef. I mean I saw him but didn’t see him clearly. Long sightedness and no glasses. I still had a great time though and tried to convince myself that after all it wasn’t Dr. Olukoya I went to have an encounter with. Lol. Had to walk for a bit when it was over. People were just too much. But I still managed to get home within an hour or a little more. Not bad.
4) Watched a lot of TV series.
My Iroko TV love is put on hold for now. I caught up with a quite a lot of series that I hadn’t had the time or will to watch. And I am still on it. Say a prayer for me so I can stop.
5) Watched The Wedding Party and witnessed a proposal.
6) Natural hair experiments. Lol.
Let me allow the pics tell the story.
7) Was gifted some money.
Lol. Getting free money is the best. You know nah.
Lol. I had a class on the Second coming of Jesus and said that Muslims didn’t believe in the Second Coming of Christ. As in I could have sworn they didn’t. An old man was like ‘ I heard it somewhere that they do’. I was like Nah! How can? Lol. They don’t even believe that Jesus is the son of God. Besides my dad is a Muslim so I know that stuff. Lol.
My people! That was how I stylishly asked Google after the Class. And you guessed it. They do believe that Jesus Christ is coming back. Toh. Of course not in the way we believe nor are they expecting Jesus the way we are expecting him. I had to go and meet the man and tell him he was right. He was thanking me for what I don’t know of. Lol.
Lesson Learnt. Never assume. In case you didn’t know also. Kindly comment and make me feel better.lol
9) Read an awesome book by Bro Gbile Akanni.
Great book. And about three people signified their interest in reading it after I was through. In case you haven’t heard about him, check him out. He talked about Deborah and Christian Service like I have never heard a person talk about it. Great teacher. Great Book. Awesome Book. Now I get the hype about him. Sorry to use the word hype, but I never quite got what the fuss was about before. I still have another one of his books left which I am yet to finish and I intend buying more.
10) We kicked off our Bible Study/Character Study.
I want to thank everyone who has read and commented. In case you haven’t been following so far, you can catch up here.
I was worried it would be boring and I would be talking to myself. For everyone who has supported us, you guys are marvelous. Don’t forget to share your perspective with us too. The whole point is for us to read about the Bible from another person’s perspective. For example I couldn’t have seen Simon the Zealot in quite the same way Immanuel saw it. Let’s all contribute. Pretty please.
Okay! Bonus point. I almost lost all of my data last Friday when my phone had issues and had to be wiped. Luckily I back up stuff. I will try and write a post on backing up later. Hmmm! What else did I do oh. I can’t seem to remember. Oh! I went to Court. Let’s catch up again in March.
I gotta go. Watch out for Part 3. Lol.
Now what were you up to in January?
