Home Again

Hello Friends!!

How are you doing?  Well, I'm back, returned last week.  Everything went relatively well with the funeral services for my Father.  We traveled and came back home safely, Praise God.  A few hiccups with our return and as usual God fixed it.

Upon our return:

1st: We missed our connecting flight as the screens were showing the wrong gate;  Decided to ask an attendant after a while, who looked up the flight and told us the right gate number; after dashing across the airport we were told the flight just left and we needed to re-book.  We dashed across the airport to find the re-booking station, when it was our turn, the Lady/travel arranger that helped us asked "Are you Christians?" We replied yes.  She said you look like Christians and began sharing her personal testimonies with us. She was full of Praises for the Lord and we were blessed to Praise God with her.  God blessed us that there was another connecting flight to our City in just a few hours and we were able get home that night. God is a Way Maker, Thank you Jesus!

2nd: The taxi driver talked about the Lord, unprompted my us, all the way to our destination and we had a blessed conversation.  It is so refreshing to meet people who really love the God and are passionate about sharing the Lord and His goodness in their everyday lives. 

After settling in, My mother asked me to get her medicine. That's when I realized that her handbag was missing. We searched and could not find it.  Her handbag had her medication and our camera in it. I started feeling overwhelmed and grief stricken thinking about the memories on our camera of pictures several years old now; not to mention my mother's medication.   I looked at the clock and It was after 2am in the morning.  Called the cab company to see if her hand bag left in the cab; they called a cab driver but it was not the same one that took us home.  I asked God to please have mercy and help us to recover the bag. I cried a bit and prayed with exhausted desperation and then decided to surrender and forced myself to sleep.   I called the cab company again the next day and they were able to track down our cab driver and he found the handbag.  Praise be to God for Ever and Ever!

3rd:  The next morning, my mother was moving one of our vehicles out of the drive way and for some reason the door would/could not open with the remote OR the physical key (have you ever heard of a KEY not opening a door?)  We tried and tried and nothing!  I remembered that my cell plan has an emergency assistance and decided to call them to see if they did lock out assistance.  They did and sent someone over right away. Even the man said he had never seen anything like that before, any way he did his thing and got the door open but the car would not start and the alarm started making NOISE non-stop.  I called the dealer to report the problem and there was a re-call for this lock issue and we took it in to get it fixed at no cost to us.  God did it Again....Praise Jehovah.

4th: Returned to work and was told there is a Big re-org taking place to be effective immediately. Staff was being moved and for some reason, I felt very calm.  With all the hype, hallway conversations and speculations, my spirit was not troubled.  After the official announcement at a staff meeting, I was told that I was staying put. God Is Faithful, His promises are true.


  1. Wow. God has really been good to you. I am glad the funeral went well. Welcome back to earth, lol.

    Have you visited my Hair Clinic?

    1. All the time Atilola, God is so good to me. Back to earth...back to reality lol. Thank you!!

  2. Wow...testimonies will not sieve from your home IJN. God is good. Welcome back.

    1. Amen, Testimonies of God's goodness and Favor will never end in my life. Thanks Christiana!! Glad to be back.

  3. Thanking God for his mercies and favours. He is ever faithful.

    1. We thank God. His faithfulness in new every morning. Thanks Okeoghene!!

  4. Welcome home, Highly Favored! I'm glad that things went ok during the funeral, and that your family arrived back home safe and sound. I also praise God for the testimonies you were able to share: the issue with your mom's purse especially resonated with me because I've had my purse stolen and there was that incident with my camera last August—that feeling when you realize something personal and important to you has been lost always fills me with dread, and tears if I'm honest.

    I'm really happy that you're not affected by the reorganization at work too.

    I look forward to reading more updates from you, when you're ready.

    1. Thanks Jummy!! I'm glad to be back. For only being away for two weeks it was quite an adjustment. It seemed to take a week to re-adjust and get back to feeling normal again. How is your adjustment and how long does it take you to recover from your trips to Nigeria?

      I'm telling you, I was really hurt/heart broken about the camera. I was so thankful and relieved. God is good.

      The Re-org, I'm happy too; Yes, Jesus loves me (singing)

  5. Yes, Jesus loves you!
    He's got it all covered!
    I had some issues yesterday too with loosing my memory card with all my writings-book chapters and all. I cried, and prayed for Daddy to cause it to be found and just thanked Him even after my sadness.
    And yep, it's found now!
    So yes, God does His things so awesome like that!

    Thank God all went well.
    And I can sooo relate with finding a Christian to talk about God and his dealings with.
    Oh, it's like finding sweet physical food! Just only better! :-)

    1. Francis I can understand how you felt. I'm happy your prayers were answered and you were able to recover your files. These incidents teach us lessons that God cares about even the little details that are important to us.

      Matthew 18:20 For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.
