Closer Than a Brother

To my sweet, precious reader:

This is my heartfelt letter to you:

There was a time in my life that I really wanted to die- I was not suicidal- but I was pretty much done with living on earth and I wanted to go to heaven. I had no desire for anything and I lost a considerable amount of weight. One morning I texted Fiona, my best friend, telling her that my heart’s deepest longing at the time was to die and she responded, “What about me?” [pause] That question really got me thinking. [another pause] Fiona’s response was unusual; she did not want to know the reason why I had such a deep yearning to die, instead, she was  interested in the aftermath of my could-be death. Granted that Fiona is quite the unusual one to say the least, but honestly, I didn’t expect such a reply from her.

About 10 seconds later she sent in another message; “What about us? What about the things God wants us to do?” I was torn. I felt a tear well up in my eyes and soon enough, my cheeks became wet. I had not thought about her questions; all I wanted was to leave earth and join my Father in heaven as soon as possible but Fifi’s questions made me re-evaluate a whole lot more. If I died today, where will my progeny come from? Who would do my work on earth? That’s what friends do to you; they challenge you. They make you think!

God tells us that He knew us before we were formed in our mother’s wombs and God definitely knew that I needed a best friend hence why He created Fiona!

Fifi and I have been friends for slightly over fourteen years now and I have truly enjoyed the ride! Fiona and I met in High School and our first encounter was when she took my favourite pair of warm, fluffy PowerPuff Girls socks without even asking me! I was unpacking my suitcase when she passed my cubicle and noticed the pair of socks that I had placed on my bed. She stopped right by my bunk, took my socks in her hand and told me, “I’m taking these.” Can you imagine that? We had NEVER met before and instead of saying hello and introducing herself; she took my socks! Who does that? Well, that’s a tinge of Fifi for you. Interestingly enough, I liked that about her; she was different. I like different.

Remember earlier this year when I was soliciting for an invitation to a January shindig? Well, God ensured that Fifi  was born in January so that I don’t miss out on the January party!!🤓😎 On the fateful night of 30th January, once upon a time… a child was born!!

Baby Fifi
Awww! Look at Fifi as a baby..😍

This year, on the same date, friends and family held a not-so-surprise dinner party for Fifi and we had such an awesome time!!

House of Kizuri made sure that the decor was spectacular!

The rest of this article is not going to be sappy, just in case you pulled out a box of tissues after reading the first two paragraphs… 😂😅We are in 2019 now and I am alive and kicking! Just check out my dope Charlie’s Angels boomerang:

January was amazing and I know February will be even better because -say it with me now- the children of God always go from glory to glory! ☀️

I thank God for my life; both physical and eternal life. I thank God for my Fifi, she’s the sweetest!

“Jonathan became a close friend to David, and Jonathan loved him as himself…”

1 Samuel 18:1 ISV

I thank God for you, my sweet reader… God bless you so much for reading my blog. I am so grateful! I am overwhelmed with gratitude! Now that I’m still alive; I’ll keep writing, I’ll keep singing, I’ll keep praising!

“So remember your Creator while you are still young, before those dismal days and years come when you will say, “I don’t enjoy life.””

Ecclesiastes 12:1 (GNT)

The best is yet to come folks… Watch this space! 😉😎

God loves you so, so much!❤️
