GOD’S WRISTWATCH

Hello sweeties!! I know, I know, I haven’t been around and I apologise. It’s not really my fault, school is gradually becoming tough and I am trying to keep up with it all but I love you all so much that’s why I am up early to put up this post 🙂 Goodmorning.

Today we are going to talk about God’s wristwatch and how it tells time. Yes! you heard me, God has a wristwatch that he uses to tell his time and although we cannot see this wristwatch or the owner, He wants us to believe that this wristwatch exists and it has it’s own time that it tells.

“My mates are building houses, God why am I in a rented apartment?”

“My mates are getting married, God why am I still single?”

“My mates have cars, God why am I still trekking?”

“My mates have children, God am I barren?”

*sigh*

Don’t look at me, you’re guilty too, we are all guilty of this particular sin of impatience. We live in hypocrisy because we don’t find it difficult to say “God’s time is the best” but we find it difficult to actually wait on God. I am not a perfect person but I know that one thing I can never do, is lose faith in God. I can be very pessimistic at times but deep down inside, I know that God cannot let me down. Impossible!

You think God does not know what we want? Of course, he does! It is then up to him to say if what we want is good enough for him to allow those things to come to us which is why it is very important to be in constant communication with him.

“Useless child, you cannot get a job but you will be eating meat from my soup!”

“but mum I have been searching for jobs for the past two years”

“It’s a lie, you are just lazy and you have a bad mind set”

*smh*

I don’t know the kind of pressure you are facing, either from family, friends or co-workers. I just want to let you know that God is not dead. He’s alive and he keeps checking his wristwatch to know when it will be ready to give you that thing that you want (provided you give him what he wants: YOU).

Don’t be in a hurry and do things out of desperation simply because you want it now now or shap shap. It will come, when it will come, just pray and be happy.

THERE IS NO EARLY OR LATE, THERE IS ONLY GOD’S TIME.

I know the world has a way of making people feel out of place with their conventions and beliefs but you have to be strong for God because his wristwatch doesn’t break down. It just keeps ticking till your time comes.

JUST BELIEVE AND BE HAPPY.

Sometimes, God doesn’t give us what we ask for because he probably feels that we are not ready to receive those things. He is concerned about our welfare and believe me when I say that he cannot forget you.

*****************

This is the little piece I have for us, I am really sorry, it’s coming now and it’s a little short. I promise I will post more often, God being my helper.

Stay safe and make sure you show yourself love because no one else would do it for you. Have a wonderful week ahead. :*

CHRONICLES OF MY NHJ: CROCHET BRAIDS!

I finally did it! lol I made crochet braids and it looks really good. I’m not really into tutorials and all but i’ll try and show you how I did it.

What I used:

  1. Super star 100% kanekalon hair
  2. Crochet latch hook
  3. Weavon rollers
  4. A pair of scissors
  5. A bowl of hot water

I had been reluctant to make crochet braids earlier on because I thought it could only be done using marley hair. It was until I stumbled on a tutorial on Hadassah’s blog that I realised that Kanekalon hair could also be used to make crochet braids.

How I did it:

  1. I cut the kanekalon hair into four parts because I wanted a shoulder length then I picked the attachment to give it a feathery look 😉 IMG_20160123_200503.jpg
  2. I then rolled the attachment around my weavon rollers and held them in place.
  3. After rolling the attachment on to the rollers, I dipped them in a bowl of hot waterIMG_20160123_200330.jpg
  4. I then brought them out and placed them on a towel to coolIMG_20160123_200456.jpg
  5. Then, I removed the attachments from the rollers and they gave really beautiful curls. I did this for the whole packet.                                                                                  IMG_20160123_200558
  6. Then I braided my hair. (i’m sorry, there are no pictures of the braids because there was no light)
  7. Then I installed the kanekalon hair with my crochet latch hook.IMG_20160123_231339.jpg
  8. That’s it!

PS: It took me less than two hours to do the actual installation but it sure took me a while to prepare the kanekalon hair for installation. It looks good doesn’t it? Now let’s see how long it will last.

See you all next time 🙂 and please show your hair love.

WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN?

“Hey! Come back! Where are you going?”

She didn’t say anything, she just kept strolling.

She could hear me but she was pretending

No matter how hard I was trying.

 

We had been in the restaurant talking

Don’t get excited we aren’t dating

She had been staring, winking and talking

She had jokes because she had me laughing.

 

Then, suddenly I started thinking

It’s like I had been on a page staring

Trying to read but wasn’t understanding

She looked so unfamiliar and so daring

 

I asked “Who are you?” frowning

She gasped, “But we have been talking”

I looked down and started thinking

I looked up and she was crying

 

She stormed off and just kept walking

I caught up with her and kept tapping

She turned around and was staring

I noticed she was still crying

 

Admist her sobbing

She asked “You dont know me?!” sniffing

I stepped back, realising

“It’s you, you’re me and I have been looking”

 

“I have been looking for me, searching!”

“I have found me and I’m crying”

“You have been missing!”

Now we are by the side walk hugging

 

I have found her…*sigh*

I have found ME

CHRONICLES OF MY NHJ: VIRGIN HAIR? NO O

Welcome to 2016 girlies! I hope we are showing our hair the love and care it deserves. Cool.

My hair and I have been surviving though, especially through the end of last year, terrible, very terrible. In the last NHJ post, I was all happy that my hair was behaving herself and retaining her moisture but I turned out that it was a post too soon because I just couldn’t anymore. I tried going to braid it at a salon and they almost cut my head off with the price of a simple “bob marley” braid. So I took my xpression hair attachment with me back home.

You know what I did? I made crochet braids lol yes I did! And it wasn’t so good, but it helped cover my hair for about two weeks. I’ll describe how I made crochet braids with a diy bobby pin, xpression kankelon hair and my little sister’s awesome twisting skills.

So, after I took out the crochet braids which were starting to look awful because the braids beneath were not so tight, I washed, conditioned, and decided to try again at another salon here in school with a simpler style. Guess the name of the hairstyle

ETISALAT

Lol, yes you heard that right! Etisalat lol. So, I asked the lady how much it would take to make the hair, and she said “because you are customer, let me do it for 1200, don’t price just sit down” and I sat. I originally had a head wrap on so when I took it off, she almost fainted.

“Jesus, Virgin Hair?!! Mba o! Your money is 1800”

I asked her why, she said ah that virgin hair is too stubborn and that it would “tear” her hand. There were other girls in the salon by the way and they were looking at me like I was an alien lol. One of them, finally spoke up and she said,

“Won’t it hurt you?”

I laughed, and told her to touch my hair and she went “wow” lol. She said my hair was even softer than hers and it was relaxed. When the lady felt my hair she loosened up and smiled and said:

“When you finally dis virgin this your hair ehn it will now be very fine and full”…

Excuse me?..dis virgin?? I started to open my mouth to tell her that I didn’t plan on relaxing it ever but I just swallowed my words, smiled and nodded because I was in a hurry to get my hair done. So, it took her about 20 minutes to get the hair done because I had already picked my attachment.

IMG_20160106_154918.jpg

Yeah, so this protective style would probably last me for about three weeks or if i’m lucky, four and then on to the next protective style because school work would not let me wear my natural hair out so much. Alright! This is pretty much it for now.

Please take care of your hair ladies (natural or relaxed). Try to form a routine for taking care of your hair, they are called regimens. Find out what your hair needs and give it to it.
