“But the question to precede all others, which finally determines the course of our lives is What do I really want? Was it to love what God commands, in the words of the collect, and to desire what He promises? Did I want what I wanted, or did I want what He wanted, no matter what it might cost?” – Elisabeth Elliot
I can’t believe it’s been over a year since I blogged! crazy! and what a wild, eventful time off it has been.
I would say ‘life happened’, but does life ever stop happening?
Okay. so after 8 solid years of dedicating this aspect of my life to The Lord, I got married to the same gentleman I’ve been writing about….. and also had a sweet baby to the Glory of God’s Name.
The book of life continues as we embark on this new chapter! I am back in Ghana, after a life-changing stay in Boston! Leaving Boston was so hard! Probably one of the hardest things I have ever had to do. I thought the whole reunion and wedding planning was going to be the next best thing. It honestly wasn’t as smooth and easy. The 2+ years spent in Boston have shaped my life so much, groomed me, and given me the best of friends who are now more family than friends.
It’s been a journey! One that deserves its own blogpost, because day in day out I am learning that God is kind. He is so kind. To think that every single day I prayed and cried to be united with my Boyfriend. And then once I was, I was over it and wanted to move back… away from him! Who am I? And how Good is God? That He would even bother finding me through dreams and prophecy to assure me that everything was and is going to be okay. Why does He care enough to tell me to stop focusing on the ‘beauty of the past’. As I said, that’s a post on its own.
So I am back! Behind Beautiful Forevers is now Wholly Ever After; as I share all things Faith, Family and Food/Lifestyle. I am basically opening up a bit more of my life to share with you all. My love for food and devotion to family roots back to my foundation in Christ; doing my best as much as it depends on me….. “until all have heard”. I’ve dedicated myself to researching on a lot of things, and then taking it all back to God. To be able to share the knowledge acquired as a woman of Faith, a wife and now, a new mama – learning on the job-… what a dream come true for me 🙂
I just realized how much I missed this!- writing to 1 or 2 or 10 people, just to remind us all that God is alive, and He is Good; even in times when we don’t understand. I can’t promise a post EVERY week(because a little sweet human basically dictates my life right now), but I can promise truth, transparency and a good deal of realness. That’s what we are all looking for, right?
Love you all, genuinely, so much!
In LOVE, Nana.
