It can only be by His Grace!!!!

Hello everyone!!!

*"...When upon life's billows you are tempest-tossed
When you are discouraged, thinking all is lost
Count your many blessings; name them one by one
And it will surprise you what the Lord has done..."* 

That is the song I've been singing since Saturday. The Lord has done me well. Yes He has... I was able to complete the journey I started, and I completed very well! it was all by His help, grace and mercy! I am soo thankful and very humbled.

Thank you all for the encouragements, the well wishes and the prayers! Y'all have been part of this great and wonderful success story and journey! 

I'd rather tell the rest of the story in pictures. Enjoy:

Then I got home to this surprise!

Wish us all an enjoyable week! Blessings and more!

Peace... I'm out!

Guest Post!

It's a beautiful day and I believe it's going to be more awesome by the end of the week. I trust we are all doing great by the plenty mercies of God, without which we are nothing, we know nothing and nothing knows us. 

I got the mail below from a reader in the United States who wants to help readers resident there on how to save cost related to phone bills, etc. I trust the information will be useful to some of us. Enjoy...

"I rely on my smartphone for a lot of things. It serves as my organizer, my calling, emailing and texting device, I take excellent photos with it, listen to music, play games, and even update my blog with it. Needless to say, it's one purchase I don't skimp on. I have had a couple of upgrades since the smartphone craze took off. I'd like to say that I choose my phone wisely, but the truth is, I don't. 

I usually base my decision on what's popular and what's hot. And I'm sure like me, a lot of people just about pick the newest phone in the market without even considering the cost. Smartphones can be expensive. Remember, you're not only paying for the device, but the service that goes with it as well. With the state of the economy today, it's important we pay close attention to our cell phone cost. Here are tips on how to save money and cut down our cell phone bill -

Tailor your plan to your specific needs. Choose unlimited text plan if you text a lot. Opt for a plan that will let you roll over unused time from a previous month to the next. Get local-only plan if you only make local calls.

Track your talk time. Make free calls via Viber or Skype when you can. Save your minutes, make local calls from your home phone so you don't go over.
411 (information) calls, horoscope texts, toll-free calls, ringtone downloads, and other extra services may seem like nothing but will sure inflate your bill when added together. Use your landline for 1-800 calls and Google the rest from your home/office internet.

Use free wi-fi whenever you can. Use your mobile data connection only when you need it.

Take advantage of the family, group, company, seniors, students discounts.

Bundle your services - phone, cable and internet, into one provider. You may get additional discounts this way.

Lastly, save more and pay as you go with a prepaid plan. What seemed like a cheap deal may not be so over the course of a 2-year contract.

Whatever your preference is, stop by and compare plans at ( Get free information and find the plan that best fits your needs and budget".

in other news! 16th of November is my graduation!!! oohhh I am excited! God is really good! Trust me...

Best wishes! 

Peace... I'm out!

Please Keep Her Happy!

Hello wonderful people!!!

Happy new month to y'all. I pray this month, will be better, bigger and more dream fulfilling to all of us, than the previous one. I also pray we will all see the end of this year in good health, plenty of God's favor and abundant grace IJN, Amen! 

I got the piece below on FB about a dad's speech on his daughters wedding, I found it worth sharing... So amazingly cool, I enjoyed it and I hope you do too. Here we go:

"I thought I would start my speech by addressing you as the “new” family of my daughter. But I think it would be inappropriate because now that she is married, you are “the family” for her. Believe me; I don’t have a problem with that. I, in fact, want my daughter to have “you” as her priority now. It's time for us to take a backseat in her life. We would happily accept it but would surely request one thing - please keep her happy.

I am more than sure that you will keep her very happy. She will perhaps be happier than what she used to be here. But like all fathers, I'm obsessed over my daughter’s happiness which is making me say this over and over again - Please keep her happy.

She never was and will never be a burden for me. She is in fact the reason why I breathe and smile. I am getting her married because this is what the law of nature demands. I am helpless in the face of our culture and therefore sending her to your home. She was the happiness of my home and will now light up your home. I am giving my world to you. Please make sure it remains beautiful. I am giving away my princess to you. Please make sure she stays as a queen. I have raised her with my sweat and blood and now she is wonderfully perfect. For all the care, love, beauty and warmth my daughter will bring into your lives, I just want her happiness in return - Please keep her happy.

If at times you think that my daughter has said or done something wrong, feel free to scold her. But handle her with love. She is very fragile. If at times she feels low, be with her. She just needs a little bit of your attention. If at times she feels sick, show her some care. It’s the medicine that works best for her. If at times she fails to fulfill a responsibility,feel free to chastise her. But empathize with her. She is still learning. Do understand her—please keep her happy.

I don’t mind if I don’t get to see her for months. I don’t mind if I am not able to talk to her on a daily basis. I would be more than happy if she doesn’t remember me much. But, my only motive in life has been my daughter’s happiness which is now in your hands. I beg you, please keep her happy.

Dear son-in-law, these words may not mean much to you now but if you are lucky enough to father a daughter someday, you will appreciate them better when you will find every beat of your heart shouting – Please keep her happy!"

This for me bears the secrets to keeping a woman happy. And any man or family, who hears this plea from another man, and goes ahead to make the woman unhappy, hmm... God no go let me talk wetin dey my mind now.

Peace... I'm out!
