Hope is not a strategy, it is a goal!

There is a saying that “Hope is not a plan” and I totally agree. I say it is an end result, a goal. Hope doesn't just happen. A lot of work is required to keep hope alive. 

One of my favourite scriptures still remains Romans 15:13, it reinforces my belief about hope, it gives the recipe for hope as maintaining your joy and peace. Once you find what brings you joy and peace, create a plan to maintain those two at all costs on a daily basis.

I find joy in knowing that regardless of what my AUsome son might not yet be able to do at his age, he will be alright. My plan is to make sure that he is trying his best at all times and that he is happy...life is short. I also find peace in living in the moment. The plan is to appreciate and love him for who he is and not who he should be.

I’m very intentional about feeding my faith and starving my fear. Worry and fear of things that may never happen used to cost me my peace, I command my mind to think about whatever is true, noble, right, pure, lovely, and admirable. And all things that are excellent and praise worthy in Jesus name according to Phillipians 4:8.

I’m also now more self- aware that I know I thrive in non-toxic environment. Whatever relationship or environment that will cost me my peace and joy is just not worth it and got to go. 

To my Super AUsome Mamas, may the almighty God continue to give us the grace to create and maintain a daily plan that would enable us keep hope alive in Jesus name.

Always ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’• on my mind,

Welcome!

Image by Ron Smith Hope lives here! I am so excited that I finally have the courage to start a blog. I’m always a decade late with trying whatever is trending but like they say better late than never๐Ÿ˜Š. The plan with this blog is to grow my christian faith by applying bible quotes/ lessons to simple real life situations. I’ve had my fair share of struggle with finding a sense of purpose in life, rediscovering my values and studying the bible to develop a closer relationship with God have all been instrumental to the overflowing of hope that I now feel. I’m motivated to inspire that same hope, even if it’s in just one other person. I’m ๐Ÿ’ฏ convinced that the bible has all the answers to all of life concerns, the best person to ask about how something works is always the person who creates it. So, join me in discovering from the creator of life our “who”, “what”and “how” in life. Always ๐Ÿ’• ๐Ÿ’• on my mind, Tejuola

Super Autism Mom

I am neither a writer nor a good story teller and  I know this because I had never enjoyed being either. Normal me struggle with expressing my ideas both verbally and in writing. I’m a visual person I would often say... I understand graphs, pictures, maps and numbers. I’m also very comfortable with stating facts and research. And (Oh) boy! how much I love using concise words such as quotes and proverbs.   So why do I all of a sudden feel the urge to voice out my emotions...I believe it’s a mark of my healing or perhaps, a coping mechanism. I have bottled up so much over the years that I now crave the need to be light . I’m intentionally choosing to let go and completely let God by sharing my journey as an Autism Mom. My goal is to encourage someone else on this journey and like I always say if I’m able to inspire hope in just one person, then I’m fulfilled. Welcome to this page on my blog ...where I hope (no pun intended..LOL) to also raise an awareness about Autism Spectrum Disorder i

Friends For Life.

My Ausome son, who is in grade one is yet to make a friend and this mama is about to make it her mission to change that, wish me luck๐Ÿ˜Š, actually scratch luck.. I’m claiming it by faith๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ.  They say we all need friends, even though he plays fine all by himself. A few of his classsmates have gone to his sister to introduce themselves as his best friend. I have also met a couple of kids who genuinely want to hang out with him. However, the only person close to his age that has been able to share in his world is his little brother, every one else gets ignored.๐Ÿคฃ You will agree with me that the younger we are, the easier it is to make friends. That’s the reason I don't want my son to miss out on this. I wish for him to experience great friendships at the age when they are mostly genuine. Some of my fondest memories of childhood were times spent with friends....friends who didn't let ego, jealousy, strife stop us from having a good time. Who simply connected based on shared intere
