Unto Us Joshua Is Born

Our little bundle of joy arrived 24th March 2011 weighing 7lb.01. We are grateful to God for this addition to our family. Our words are nothing compared to the joy we feel.

There are no words Lord, to say thank you. You are truly the covenant keeping God. You keep your words above your name; you are not a God that changes His mind. Your mercy and love overwhelms me. How can we ever thank you for all you have done.

You took pity on a messed up girl from Lagos, Nigeria. You saw my mess and shame; you wiped away my tears and my guilt. You gave me a new beginning and wiped out the handwriting of ordinances, which was against me; and You took it out of the way, nailing it to the cross. You have embarrassed me with your love.

Abba Father! There is nothing that I have done to ever deserve this great and mighty love that you have blessed us with. What the enemy meant for evil You turned it round for our good. Who can curse what You have blessed. You have used the foolish things of this world to confound the wise.

You are the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. The God of Adey, Buky, Faith, David and Joshua. You are a God of covenant and relationship. The invincible God that does visible things.

You have made me the mother of many children; I will brag on Your name forever more. I will not keep silent of your goodness, tender mercy and loving-kindness.

Oops! I almost forgot to mention, Joshua is one handsome dude just like his dada. Me think he is better looking!!! Lol, Adey eat your heart out, there is the new kid in town papa!!

We are back to the hustle and bustle of newborn demands, oh the joy of sleeping thru the night and having time to ourselves is gone. Some days I feel like saying goodbye world, see you around sometime in the near future!

Thanks to all my friends, fellow bloggers, family and all my HWC family for keeping me sane and allowing me to tell our story.

Adey, thank you for having the common sense and foresight to not engage with me in all my crazy shenanigans! Gosh I am full of them, and I am already thinking of the next one!

Thank you Lord for loving this desperate, opinionated, full- of-drama, mama.  You know I am working on something new to be desperate for.

Only God can do that and you’ve said it all in your blog! You’re funny too, I can’t help laughing at – is it your blatant honesty? or your writing style?
