HAPPY BIRTHDAY EBUKA!!!!!



Jan 26, 2008, I can still remember the day......
At the time, I was on the South side of Chicago in someone's home when I received the bad news.... I was oblivious to the fact that something had really happened because the person on the other end of the line was very calm when delivering the news. I guess that was for my sake. She proceeded to tell me what happened, informing me that upon his roommate's arrival back to the dorm room from his class, Ebuka was found not breathing. He was rushed to the emergency room.....and then he was pronounced "dead".... as the doctors then gave the time of death.


In my heart, all I could do was cry which was hard enough since I had to drive back home in unbecoming situations, but what I struggled with most was how I'd inform my younger sister. Up until me arriving back to the house, no one had called her, which I thought was strange, but thankfully, at that time, they hadn't. If the pains of watching death through life were to be ever witnessed, I'd never wish death upon even the worst of enemies. It mourned me to see her mourn, yet only God's surgery could cure her open wounds.... But today, I thank God for His healing hand. That was the first time I had ever buried life....

3 years later and Bucca Mane is merely a memory to some, but to others, Ebuka's life is a joyous celebration lived 365 days of the year... There are those that touch your hearts that a smile that displays 32 perfect teeth but then there are 'Ebukas' who mark your lives with more than the captions of a photograph.

Bucca Mane, we love and miss you, but I thank God because your life has never been one lived in vain. If I could be thankful to Jesus for creating and sculpting His masterpiece in the form of your spirit, I'd never stop praising Him. The day in Philly 2001 marked me in a special way, and if I knew I'd never see you again after the ATL conference, I'd have hugged you just one more time...But Jesus is coming back and when He does, His saints will join with the angels in worshipping Him and we'll forever be reunited.

Big Sis will never forget you.....rest peacefully!

Transparency!

So today, I had a talk with a friend....

At first I didn't answer the phone cause she called from an unknown number (s/o to her), but I did it anyway....God's in the business of surprising me these days, so I'm getting prepared for receiving things from people I don't know and numbers I've never seen, o yes, o yes, say AMEN!

Anyway, there was a conversation or rather an incident that took place yesterday that kind of ended on a bad tone, mainly my part, I think. While listening to her speak, and hearing her side of the conversation, ...minutes later, after careful reflection and staring at myself in the car mirror, since I was driving when I received the call, I realized that I was in the wrong. Now recently it hasn't been a struggle for me to apologize if I've offended someone, although it definitely isn't my aim, and I tend not to care whether or not I'm forgiven by man as long as He who matters forgives me....but natural relationships heal with forgiveness.... So I apologized! Although at the time the instance occurred, I couldn't see the wrong, and I honestly didn't think it was that bad, it was revealed to me that she was offended, so correction was in the works and still is. Yes, I'm human so eh, guess I have to get used to it.

I tend to think I'm uplifting and building up those around me, cause I truly want my friends to success, but sometimes it may come off as not being done in love and being said to prove a point, so I've been challenged to use discretion with the Holy Spirit's leading, carefully evaluating motives for the things I do...

At least I feel better now, knowing that she's ok, so all is well with the world. And I'm slowlyyyy but surely becoming less guarded, guess you just gotta get to know me :)

Currently: Working on being transparent....I call it guarded, eh...or private.... guess not! :-p

P.S. thanks for the convo...... 





Be blessed,

ONETHING 2010!

Countdown!!!!!

I'm so excited to be able to attend this conference with my ACF fam. There's a joy in my heart in expectation for the glory of God because I know that He is going to do something amazing in the lives of His people, and especially through us. I pray that before, during and after the conference comes to an end, every heart would receive a conviction from His Holy Spirit which would cause God's chosen generation to obey the call of Christ; leading men to an act of complete abandonment of self,  causing men to desire the life of total devotion to Christ. 

If you're not planning on coming and you'd like to, check out the link and register. It's FREE! All you gotta do is get there.... :)
