Hello folks. How are you doing? Whew about the last post, no more preaching for me. lol.
Miss TM says i see everything literal, and i have to agree, and you already know i can be rather opinionated about some things. I find that i can't always explain myself physically, so writing helps and today i am going to try and explain something. RocNaija says that we are who we are/ believe what we do based on our experiences, again i have to agree. But let me start by introducing myself.
My name is Olubukunola Ayomide Moyosola Oluwanifemi. That's all there is to know about me if you ask me.Olubukunola means God has added wealth. Ayomide means my joy has come. Moyosola means I rejoice in health. Oluwanifemi means God Loves me. So when i think of myself, i think wealth, joy, health and love all wrapped in God. Thats all you need to know about me if you ask me. (will be taking off names soon)
So let me go back, i was having an argument with BB and the best friend about them calling a new baby by just his initials. And they wanted to know why and i gave them that whole spill about names are very important, hence God changing some peoples names in the Bible or given specific names to a person/place ( i'm sure i dont have to remind you all about this). Still they thought that i was overreacting that it wasn't a big deal. I ended up just saying you know, do you, but i do know no child of mine can/will be called by just his initials. No child of mine is getting an English name, cos if u ask me most of them don't make sense. My child is getting a very "conc" yoruba or delta name. I remember when i was coming to this country i begged my dad to change my name, and he wouldn't and with understanding now i'm very glad he never did.
I don't play with names, i think names are very important, when i'm sad i call my names to myself to remind me of who i am. I think my issue with names started from my dad. One of the times he was mad at my mum and he had called her names, he had said that part of the reasons why she was evil is cos of her name "Lucy" that it was taken from Lucifer and how lucifer fell from heaven and God did not find favor with him and all that. This was the first time i heard of Lucifer btw. Please do not judge my dad, you all know how much i love my dad, and i only share this story to make a point. My mum's maiden name starts with Ogun and i know a lot of my cousins who are changing it to Oluwa. I know that a lot of people have decided that juniors should not be added to kids name, so no more Kunle junior or something like that, or even given the names of grandfathers and all.
I'm going on and on, but let me say this all came to play for me because last week i had decided that i needed to be very careful about what i say, so no more "Olowdow", "ode", "stupid" i don't curse but no more of that even for games (failed woefully at that today). Then they spoke about it in church, then i read this the very next day and then heard Kirk Franklin speak on the radio that there was power in the tongue and a woman had the ability to edify her man . Been worrying about this whole school thing, so i promised myself that anytime any evil thot came into my mind concerning school, relationships, family, i would SPEAK out positive words and then i saw this the very next day and i was entirely sure God was sending me a strong message.
Is this a message for you as well? I'm speaking what i want about everything health, wealth, family, success, friends, everything even the minutest of things. I encourage you to do the same. But when i think of a name, i think of the name Jesus, the name above all names. The name that Conquers all is Jesus. Love it, thatisall
