Please, can someone tell me what I am doing wrong?

My last 2 posts was typed on my iPad and the layout of my typing is all joined with no commas, gaps and paragraph


Moving On


Thank you for listening to my rantings and it is so funny how much better I am these days. My children are healthy and happy and older son just got admitted into High school and we've paid the fees and bought the uniforms, so, that is settled.

Today, 15years ago,I had my traditional marriage and I can remember the excitement just like yesterday, my mum just retired and had time on her hands and I was supposed to be serving NYSC (yes,I'm that old) in Umuahia but I absconded after camp because I was not redeployed back to Lagos. I did not even report to the place of pry assignment,all that was on my head was my wedding plans.

And planning I did, the months before the wedding was a bonding time between me and Mum, we never used to be close as she was so busy with her job as a banker, we shopped and made decisions together and my parents let me have everything I wanted as per the wedding. It was beautiful, both the traditional and Church ceremonies.
I thank God for beautiful memories and a beautiful life with Yemi as well.

As the song goes;
Count your Blessings
Name them one by one
Count your Blessings
See what God has done
Count your Blessings
Name them one by one
And it will surprise you
What the LORD has done.

So, I'm counting my blessings this morning and ask you to Thank the Lord with me for his goodness and mercies for the past 15years.

Have a lovely day

PS; for those of you wondering, my NYSC was extended by 6 months and 6 months allowance was also not paid but small price to pay compared to the time I got to know my mum.

I am not HAPPY


I am not Happy, in fact,I am really unhappy.

Satan has decided to bring out the big guns to try and steal my joy and I am fighting big Tim to hold on to it. Things are just happening that is so discouraging .
1st, I found a lump on my neck last year which I have had some tests to see what it is and the process is so slow in Luth where my specialist is. It is a lymph node and is non malignant but they can't seem to find the cause of it growing so large.

Then, my household equipment are giving up on me, 1st my microwave oven,then the fridge,followed by my washing machine and now my deep freezer packed up and it is full of food and I just repaired it less than a year ago.

Then, the custom strike has delayed some of books for some time and I hope they are safe and won't get stolen at the airport and am scared to place new order for some requested books.

I wonder why all these are happening to me,I can't afford all these repairs and health bills and it is weighing me down.
Now, my hormones have gone haywire and my period is doing their own thing. I am very weepy and sad and have asked God why he is allowing all these to happen,these drains should not happen to me as I pay my tithes and do not turn my face from the needy.

All, I have heard him say is,'My GRACE is sufficient for you, Trust me and be still and know I am GOD'. I am like Martha who was worried about many things but Jesus calls me to sit at his feet just as Mary did.

Hummmh I feel better already writing this down in the middle of the night as my family sleeps and ther is electricity and Internet service. (God is Encouraging me already).
These scriptures just came to my mind;
Praise the Lord, oh my Soul
And never forget his benefits,
Who forgives all my sins
And heals all my diseases.
Psalm 103:2-3

Rejoice, in the Lord always,
I say it again Rejoice'.

So,I can be unhappy but I must be Joyful.
