The Choir

So today I felt like sharing the song list I had for my church wedding. It was too lit i still go can’t deal. I had Mr John Osire and band play for my church choir and gracious God, if it wasnt Justice, i ask that you contact them as well or talk to me nicely for the contact. It’s an Only christian band. Meaning they only play gospel songs so even if you want them to play at your wedding reception, make your gospel list known to them and let them handle the rest. And yes, he is the best Violinist I know in Kampala.

groom entered Church to “great is thy faithfulness“.  You will realise I chose a lot of Old traditional church hymns for my day. But for each of these hymns speak closely to my heart. And this was a perfect song because morning by morning new mercies I indeed see.

maids entered to “flesh of my Flesh“. Now, the first time I heard this song it was at one of the many weddings I attend but i didn’t know the lyrics. Thanks to google i got to know the lyrics…They are vows….

Bride(that is me): I entered to “just as I am,I come broken“. Now, all my childhood I knew this was the song I was going to walk down the aisle to. However, the traditional hymn is what i had in mind until Tomlin, pimped the song up. It’s deep for me.(god,only God and i know how deep) I see My husband as Christ and i as his church and all i was saying is “just as i am” i come to thee so just take me in. I am not perfect but that is why christ died for a sinner like myself to be mended. So dear husband, maybe you didn’t know this but i am the way i am, not perfect, always under construction.

After the vows: Beautiful in white was played yes the one of westlife, because my husband has his attachments to it. He didn’t care at what point they sang it, but he needed the song and yes, I was in a lovely white Gown.

the Offertory and thanksgiving. one of my favorite Luganda hymns “Ekisa kyo tekitegerekeka” (your grace is unfathomable). His Grace is indeed nothing I can explain or describe. its unfathomable and indescribable, its overwhelming. Because every day I still fall short and yet everyday he loves me harder…nowonder Brian Lubega questions…Kisa nabaki ekyo?….

It was accompanied with “he has made me glad” and indeed The lord has made me glad. Everyday am blessed. Everyday I sing a new song

Signing the certificate we had “To God be the Glory“…..If I don’t give him the glory, then am a big thief. That man has done me good…so good.

The recession song was Big Godo by Dee Jones: One, I wanted to dance my way out of Church. Two, I wanted to praise my lungs out. three: i just needed to remind myself that He has never left me alone.  I tell my Matron that i am a modern-day Esther because the Favor upon my life overwhelms me as well. And knowing i have a big God by my side, i can never fail! i have a team of Mordecais because its not just a single person. My “A” team. My family. eish kambateganise! kamunkunzire!

Now, did I mention that Mrs Ziki Banga aka Saidat Catcazazza (fb names) was on those Vocals? Gwe…this babe can sing….If I had her vocals i would never ever shut up.

All in all “to God be the glory” he has made me glad. My heart is full

NB: Kano Kalango, Just incase u want a choir that will do Runyankore hymns for you,My siblings and I are like the open hymn book or that we have the kitaguriro within us that the book wont have. we Also know English but see some times vernacular tastes like heaven!

Find what you love and let it kill you -Bukwoski

Dear me

Always remember that sunday school lesson of John 3:16?

The guy loves you so much that his only son had to die. so find something you love and even when the world doesnt approve, die with it. Hold unto it and cherish it. Let everything be about it. In this case it could be your heart.  Love your heart or self so much that even when it kills you, it will be remembered like the Romeo and Juliet Tale. Dont give up easily or give it away easily.

Conversations in my head

eyes (read): Summary of 2018 prophecies by …. Prophet.

north korea, trump, japan, UK strikes, plane crash,investments,two parliaments,,fallen soldiers,  Oscars………(reckoning……oscars……reads…)……demonic entities…..

Brain to Heart: has god been reduced to this. Is he this cheap?. Okay, so if its demonic and all, what has it got to do with christianity? What does the winner have to do with the gospel?  (continues to read….) “No one has done this before”….

Heart to Brain: You mean u cant predict this? (they laugh…back to eyes)…”any prophesy that has no purpose isnt prophesy at all I think”…(the sender says)

Eyes continue:…..Google had these predictions

Brain to Heart: see…. we can do this…But wait..back in the 90s we had mchaka mchaka compulsory for all youth. So that looks old, they will just bring it back. In fact all my siblings did it. I just came too late to find it. Do soldiers ever fall out with each other?

Heart to brain: I didn’t know mahn. I thought its like mother and daughter…But doesnt God reveal to redeem? so What are we being redeemed from?

Brain to heart: everyone knows Corbyn Jeremy Kavuyo.

Heart to brain: Well, I don’t even know what that is…

Eyes to text: I feel Pessimist at times but I know God isn’t Purposeless.

(heart and brain nod in agreement).

Heart to brain: Boss calm down. God has never asked that u fight his battles. he can manage. sip some tea. you even over working me

Brain to heart: you have a point. If they don’t come to pass we shall edit the document.

Heart to Brain: am worried. Finances, relationships, God….Life generally. Growing up is a trap. Am trying not to be perfect yet perfect. Best yet same usual me….eeh!2721d191cd693980e0cebf7365fdf016

Brain to heart: boss, pump what u need to pump. channel your energy there and do it well. Focus on what you know best how to Do,Let God do the worrying for you. I mean, eyes told me that he read somewhere and God said, Rest in only me…

Heart to Brain: U donkey first focus. If u didn’t have all these things stringing, i wouldn’t have felt.

Brain to heart: Calm down, cant u hear, ear has already tuned to Anthony Evans, am focused!

Heart to Brain: Well done, now I can work and smoothly at that.

 

 

#ItWasAs 1yr ago today

I do recall texting my girls like 2hrs after and going home in silence. My body shaking and I was actually hiding my fingers the whole time. It happened over a late lunch and as much as i was hungry, i lost my appetite. Well, yes. I went home called my mother out of the kitchen we got into her bedroom and in my hands i had a proposed date and on the other a ring and still shaking after our chat i went off to my bed.

On this day last year I said yes.

That might be all I shall say for now. But maybe one day soon I shall tell you the details.  However, it has been an amazing journey full of happiness and joy. Fights and arguments but most of all, full of gossip.

Don’t be one of the many that ask why the 💍 is on that finger. Because the answer will be not what I shall think about but what I have rehearsing thoroughly well.

#OkayBye let me go back to my things. At least now you know why I haven’t had those stories in a while. I am still “covering my face with my palms” (like those instagram proposal pics I mean) and don’t argue I know it’s a year later but yes, I had a delayed reaction that day I didn’t until I realized (from all the FB and insta pics and videos of others) that I had to cry, scream, hold my breath and cover my face with my palms and over blink so am doing exactly that now.

What do you think heaven looks like?

Well, this was the most interesting question of the week. I liked/loved the answers.

On Facebook, One person took me back to the bible. He said, “The kingdom of heaven is inside you…so heaven looks as clean, dirty, beautiful,ugly as ones mind.” This had never crossed my min but then i thought, some people’s heaven will be too dirty. He told me common people (not sure who is common) call that hell.

One of my girls says its white and gold like her wedding will be. (i keep puting these colours together to see the glamour)

I have never dreamt of what heaven looks like,like some people have. This isnt something i could say i ever imagined as a child. Even when i studied my bible the visual was  omitted. Even when i watch the movies about heaven i never have had a visual but recently i was reading something online. The writer said she had visited heaven more than once. Sometimes she dosed off in the taxi. Her story was alittle bit different from a couple of others i had read. She had seen the angels that envied her because they didnt have priveledge like she did. She had seen the throne of Gold and the son shinning like the sun that you could hardly see the face. She spoke of the gold gates and the white, the worship, The book of life. But what caught me, she said everyone in heaven wears a clog of humility. This particular blog (read here)has too many of those stories, but as for me, Am still waiting for my turn before i can imagine. But if its to Think, i still have also failed to create this thought

I crave a list of things not just one thing but i do crave candies alot and roasted maize

If i am not craving that, it will be cake, hugs, my man…..

But mostly i do crave God. I know you are wondering how? But well, i do. i often crave to be in his presence so being in his presence has become a habit. While i was yonger i prayed that i did crave for him more than i craved for individauls or candy and he answered.

So one thing i crave for most, God

DAY SIX

Human?

Immortal?

Well, Does God count because i dont watch those batman movies and the like. Number one super hero is God, he always comes through at the rightest of times. When he promises he fulfills. He isnt human that he will lie. Basically, i have a father. He can never and has never failed me. He is very right on time and ofcourse if he hadnt bought me that Patience stilleto, i would never know how it feels like to have such a hero by your side always. The Humility clog….wuuuuuu… thats like the bestest attire any designer can ever make.

But sadly the person that took me to this place passed on 2 months after. The pain in my chest. I still think one day i will wake up and he he is alive but God takes the good one. His demise took me to a place i had been to

the Emptiness i felt, the pain, the heart break. he had just had a very cute son and he didnt live to see how smart he has grown. I had too many questions but see, my troubles and pain were not bigger or heavier than the cross.
