A Birthday in Lockdown


A few hours ago it was my birthday, the day God found it worthy to bless earth with me. I was born on 15th May. It was a whole new experience celebrating it while in Lockdown this 2020

Allow me take you through how it went;

It started on 14th with me visiting my nephew Kevin who lives 8.7km away from my home. It was a long journey that spent it worshiping God. Upon reaching, my nephew blessed me with amazing juice and tasty food. Hearing him call me aunt is so therapeutic!! (things that make me love motherhood). We also had quality time as he saw me off as I returned home later in the afternoon. Nothing fills my tank like spending quality time with people loving on, praying with and hearing them out. It was a colorful day filled with joy and love. #pre-birthday treats given by God


15th showed up and boom… I was all clad up in my bed early morning gazing through my phone. Friends called in singing for me happy birthday songs, sending through texts and an eCard. It was a glorious moment.
I then shut my phone and went into a moment with God. We had an awesome time together just sharing about the 4 cycles I have completed, the ups and downs and a way forward. God has His way of doing things and it always amazes me.

Around 10:00hrs, a friend who stays 100kms away sent through a cash gift for me to enjoy my day. This was literally rain falling in a desert. I just danced and praised God because right there I had received dimes to take me through the day. I there and then sent for milk, yes I love pasteurized milk. It was boiled and I was given my cup to take. It just turned out to be my lunch meal for the day while I kept responding to all wishes online. My afternoon was further blessed with mobile internet data from my beloved friends.

Some written pieces that came through!

Many prophetic declarations were made by friends on various online platforms and prayers sent through. Written pieces also came through. I loved two poems one from a mentor and the other from my little sister. My other friend also wrote an open letter…I was wowed…

Later in the evening, I went for an evening walk with one of my gifts December 2019 blessed me with – #Lastborn (the name). It was fun climbing the hill, taking pictures and eating some chocolate ice cream. Thanks to my friend Grace who made it possible for me to have ice cream.
Spending time with Lastborn talking about life, our challenges, our wins and cracking jokes that got us bursting out in laughter was so therapeutic. (Such walks fill my tank)

The Evening walk

Towards 21:00hrs (our curfew time here in Uganda), I jogged back home to my phone. I continued with the activity of responding to the birthday messages plus chatting with some friends. My mother prepared for me a sumptuous meal which I gladly enjoyed. It was Irish potatoes and these I love with a passion.

My highlight moment for the day was receiving a Glorious gift of a Beautiful sister. Each time God blesses me with a soul to love on, raise and do life with, my heart melts because that’s why I was created. This my sister is a loving soul who I met 5 years ago from a distance. God finally allowed us to officially meet yesterday and I look forward to walking this journey of life with her. I love her! I am grateful to God for daily , He loads me with beautiful blessings.

With my Young Sisters

The day finally closed with me receiving a Video of my little sisters singing for me. It was so heart warming. I love it… The whole input, preparation and singing just surprised me with lots of love. Thank you Anita, Mariam and Gloria. Thanks for loving me and challenging me always to be a better big sister.

Lock down generally had a big effect on my celebration especially for the fact that I could not get the opportunity to execute my plans fully. Connecting all the parties that needed to be involved was a hard paper so I I just had to postpone the plan till after this season. I made peace with that and chose to just go with what I could do. I am grateful to God for He still made me smile in this new situation.

Home, Work & Devices.

I thank God for the gift of life, I am healthy and an Economic Power house.
I am grateful for the love I receive from my friends and family.
I am grateful for the clarity God is downloading for me and the glory He is crowning me with.
2020 is a great year of doing great exploits.
I am loved and Cherished.

I am the Lioness Arising!
