Knowing who you are

For the past year Ive been on this journey of becoming more of who I am. And it's been interesting so far... I cant complain actually...

Recently I found something while reading the book, Sacred Marriage. It was written by a guy named Dietrich Bonhoeffer from a prison cell... He poses a question about who he is....

Who am I?
This or the other?
Am I one person today, and tomorrow another?
Am I both at once? A hypocrite before others,
and before myself a contemptibly woebegone weakling?...
Who am I? They mock me, these lonely questions of mine.
Whoever I am, thou knowest, O God, I am thine

couldnt have said it better myself...

60 years ago today....

... my mothers were born and I am grateful to God for bringing them this far

in three continents... and the heavens... today is a day of massive celebration



Having two mothers is very special
and dealing with them... takes some skills too
They're so much alike... yet so different...
all in all I thank God for bringing us to see this day

You can tell the character of people sometimes by things that go on around them
Soooooooooo many people were clamoring to get things done for them... We the childen were even having a hard time getting access....

I pray many many more years of Favor and Blessings on their lives... I cover them in the Blood of Jesus... no evil shall befall them... they shall see the punishment of evil but none shall come near them or their dwellings... as they go in and out... I pray for God's guidance... That they will continue to walk in the path that God has ordained for them... no evil formed against them and their family will ever prosper... I give God the Glory for what He has done and What He is doing and What I know He will continue doing... Thank you Father... Thank you for these wonderful women of God... Thank you for their strength... even when it was hard... they did what they had to do for their children and all we all can say today is Glory to God and all we can continue to do today is bestow honor unto your name... You have been so faithful... so merciful.... May we continue to have cause to continue to praise and lift your Name O, God concerning their lives.... Amen

Join me and my family in celebration! :-)
enjoy the music

Marriage et al

My sister finally tied the knot and yours truly was the one supporting her as the maid of honor... and as I was walking behind her.. I thought why people have hundreds of people on their train... as in what is their purpose.... Ive decided the max Im having is 3... Im having two for sure... my sister who just got married then my cousin who said I cant have a married woman as my "matron" of honor... is that a rule?... so im guessing she wants the position... so fine... two people... and maybe LONDONBUKI... i have to get that girl to the altar some kind of way.

As a result of this wedding, I sorta started my own company... trying to get it off the ground anyways... which is the reason I havent been blogging... more to come on that in the near future by God's Grace and Favor....

So many thoughts entered my head during this wedding period and after

1. The MC was hot... in a nice guy kinda way... sooooo maybe not so hot as much as he was cute... yeah... cute is the word... not hot hot... people were eyeing us one kind... as in... is it a crime now to be friendly... I noticed "knowing" looks... but there was really nothing to be "known"... he was just a really nice guy... but there was that moment we were singing... I kinda rolled with it but I felt verrrrrrrryyyyyyyyy awkward...
2. Someone fell in love with me.... but whyyyyyyyyyyyyy. I guess there's just something about me... :-)... or maybe it was just the whole lovey dovey atmosphere....
3. Must the first dance be a slow dance... there's something so eeewwwwiiissshhhh about that... as in... must there be a first dance... glad my sister didnt go that route
4. The kiss... how long? how short... what is appropriate exactly.... there is another eeeewwwiiiishhhhh factor to this as well... my sister's was short... and... I dont know I wasnt really looking
5. What to do with the name. So many people are hyphenating their names now... so you see aderenle-ajayi-coker... as in WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY. I think that if your maiden name is more than two syllables... then you shouldnt hyphenate it... but why? like my last name... very simple... love it! very spanish sounding... great name to hyphenate... will i? NO... but I will retain it in my professional life... or maybe this Diamond Hawk will take a life of its own...
6. Why didnt anyone tell me that my role as the MOH was to pick money from the floor...
7. I was told to start getting ready for mines.... my mom has declared next year... the closer the days come, the more Im pushing it further and further... I hope I dont become a bitter spinster o... that will fall for any man
8.Why did my eldest sister (the one I blogged about previously... Im so editing that nice post) see it fit to announce to everyone that I was hooked already and proceeded to tell them exactly how.... as in... hello... she was sooooooooooo blowing my game up.... all I could do is smile... shooot.... there's goes my chance with the MC... lol (j/k)... if I wanted one that is.. ;-)
9.Im sooooooooo taking flat shoes with me next time I go anywhere... as in I couldnt stand the heels anymore... I felt my feet were about to disintegrate...
10. it is very unnecessary to have a big wedding.. .but if family insists... being that Im having a society wedding... because you know... Im sooooooo famous.... (tongue in cheek) I will tell them the colors... let them plan... and they can tell me what time to show up


Recently, someone proceeded to serenade me with a love song from youtube... gotta love it... anyhoo while on there I noticed two other youtube videos that I found interesting.... check it out and have a great weekend
