Resolutions to be or not to be

Happy New Year everyone! 361 more days to go in this year and I am looking forward to every single day with all the surprises and blessings that are in store. I hope y’all had a wonderful holiday? Mine was special (since it was the first as a married person) and I didn’t have to do too much alase runs :). Xmas was spent at a family friend’s place and it was just relaxing (habibi and I also got xmas pressies from people we weren’t expecting anything from so that was a plus!)

Spent the 31st of December in the presence of God and it was definitely a fulfilling experience. Towards the end of 2006 habibi and I started working on a list of goals for 2007. We decided to get rid of the funk of having resolutions every year and not really accomplishing much. This year we have come up with goals and steps towards achieving them. Lord willing our long list of goals and wish list will be all struck out by the 31st of December 2007.

As an individual I have decided to also take stock of how I use my time this year which means I will be making more time to develop all aspects of my life. Funmi will be a well-balanced person by God’s grace this year. I have already started on that with spending alot more time listening to sermons from some of my favourite preachers. Do check out this site and if you are interested check out Chip Ingram’s sermons for the next few days on the Roman 12 christian.

I woke up on Sallah Day to the news of the death of Saddam Hussein. I honestly still find it hard to believe that the man who caused so much havoc in Iraq is gone. Personally I don’t think killing him was the best option (thank goodness I am not in the shoes of those who made that decision). Filming the process of ending a person’s life in my opinion is the most barbaric thing that can ever be done. I have heard that a clip of him being killed is now in circulation that is just sad. What do we intend to get from gratifying ourselves with watching him breathe his last breath? I even dare to say may his soul rest in peace.

The year ended with me reconciling with my spiritual dad (long story for another blog). It taught me of the need to stop procrastinating and ensuring I get myself right with whoever I am holding a grudge against. I feel a lot lighter now that we spoke and aired our issues.

I also took the time to check out Daddy Adeboye’s prophecies for the year as well as some other people’s. One thing that sticks to mind is that lukewarmness will be rewarded (negatively of course). I have decided to make this year be the year when my trailblazing will begin. I have also decided that I will ACT and not REACT to circumstances and situations I face this year. Please remember Nigeria in your prayers this year my dear motherland needs a divine touch this year with the upcoming elections and all. The demonstration of craze that is now going on can't continue.

Just found out Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will be in cinema this year I am so excited about that (there is something about going back to being a carefree teenager again even if it’s just for 80 minutes!) Finally the Pursuit of Happyness with my baby lol will be at the cinema next week (already have a hot date with habibi set).

Here is praying that the best of 2006 will be the worst of 2007 for everyone of us.
