Some Things Have No Words.

Dear Reader,

Compliments of the new year, month, week. It has been a while, I know. I thought of skipping this bit. The easiest thing would be to go on as if nothing happened and smile as if a month long silence is normal, but that wouldn’t be very honest would it?

I have been away for a while. First , I was in a fatal car crash on my way  back from my ICCOMNIGERIA meeting, I  almost died. I lost my devices. Everything spun horribly out of  control. Then I got robbed.  And the only thing I could think about was walking through the Valley of the Shadow of Death.

Through it all  God has been immensely kind to me. I am alive. I am well.  I have had time to think about life, priorities, purpose and eternity.

I have realised that most of the things we tear our hair out about are irrelevant.

I have found out that in the end, when your life flashes past, it won’t be your achievements or  bank statements that  matter. It is your relationships. The way you stand with people and with God.

I have stopped saving things; burying pretty jotters for later,  saving shirts for a ‘special’ event, hoarding mugs for some grand occasion….

Now, I wear my best shirts, drink with  my best mugs, scribble on my cutest jotters and enjoy all the blessings I have.

I have wiped away all the grudges I held. I am focused on living a life I will be proud to account for. And enjoying every step of the way.

And I am glad you are with me on the ride.  I can’t give any guarantees but I believe it is going to be fun. And novel and worthwhile.

So, let’s take the 2014 trip together, I wish you God’s best and good speed. God bless you more and more.

Alive and grateful,

  1. Oh dear! I’m so grateful to God for sparing your life…#bowsdowninworship

    I’ve been wondering myself that this one that our very own saint has been silent, what happened.

    Welcome back! I hope you didn’t sustain any lasting bodily injuries and that you are mobile, and kicking

    Yes, life is all about relationships : with God and people. May God preserve you and me and all our loved ones, both virtual and real, in this year, and may we go higher and greater and wiser.

    Happy new year. #hug

  2. Welcome back, doc. Thank God for your life and sorry for all that happened to you. I do understand where you are now; kind’a what I feel about life as well. But isn’t it funny (or not) how people around us (on twitter, fb etc) go through shocking things in their lives and we have no idea? It’s so easy to lose someone we take for granted. Glad we haven’t lost you.
    Keep writing. Keep being awesome.

  3. May God heal You totally dearie. There’s no point saving the best for the last when you have no idea when your last would be. I learnt that lesson last year too, and I’ve had a change of heart. Live in the now. Let tomorrow take care of itself, that’s what the scripture teaches. Welcome back.

  4. Welcome back dearie, May God perfect your healing and restore in hundred folds all you lost. Learnt that lesson too last year. There’s no point saving the best for last when you are not sure when your last would be. Living in the now beats all other things. Even the scripture teaches us to let tomorrow take care of it self. Happy you are alive. There’s something you need to do. Please do it . Achieve those dreams of yours, against all odds. Take care.

  5. Oh dear! I’m so glad you made it through dear. God be praised. I did fret when you started doing like me and went awol on twitter. All I could do was pray……
    Welcome back, and enjoy the goodness 2014 has in store.
    As for the lost devices? Chill, something better will come your way.
    Lots of love…..
