Posts Tagged ‘blog anniversary’

Thanks to God and to all the readers of this blog who have kept it going for the past 24 months…

I didn’t know how long this would last, but I’m certainly pleased that the writing journey is still on.

I am nowhere near where I want to be (writing wise) but I’m grateful to at least, be writing.

I can’t claim to be a consistent (daily or weekly, for example) blogger, as I only blog as and when “it” comes to me.

So, I’m very grateful to ALL those who have stayed reading Anoda Phase these past 2 years…God bless you all…

Here’s to another two years (hopefully more)…hip, hip, hip, hurray!!!

Yours in writing,

Hurray!!! Anoda Phase is ONE today! I can hardly believe how far we’ve come on this journey…God has indeed been very faithful…and thanks to all of you who read Anoda Phase…without you, we can hardly call this a blog, for what is a blog without readers?

*****

On anoda note, I did promise that my next post would be about how I came about my business name “Over and Out“… with subtle reminders from Rita , Myne, and Chika, I wasn’t about to forget, so here goes!…

*****

“Over and Out”? I wondered…

I had just woken from a dream in which I had heard the phrase “Over and Out” repeatedly dropped into my subconscious…

Over and out? I asked myself again…What’s that? And why is it being repeated several times to me in my dream?

Then it came back! That still small voice that had dropped the phrase in my heart in the first place…Yes! “Over & Out” it said…

Oh-kay…so, what does “Over and Out” mean? I asked…

What does over mean? The voice asked.

Over?

Yes, over!

“Well”…I stuttered, definitely unprepared for this…over means…more than, above, or in excess of something…

Good! Said the voice. And what does out mean?

Already getting tired of the conversation, but eager to get to the bottom of this impromptu English language class, I replied; out means not in, or away…

Okay, said my new English teacher, let’s get to the point… (Thank God! @ Last!)

*****

That was almost 10 years ago…

“The Voice” explained to me, using an analogy of a glass cup being filled with water…

…at some point, the cup fills up, but if the pourer doesn’t stop pouring, the glass begins to run over, and then out…

*****

I received the remaining part of that message in 2007, during my Masters Degree @ the University of Birmingham…I was on my way to catch the bus to school…taking slow, purposeful steps, I think I was singing to myself, when The Voice returned…

“When the blessings begin to run over, it said, do not let the portion that flows out go to waste…make good use of it; to bless others around you; whether individuals, nations, or organisations – the Church inclusive…or else, I will take it from you!”…and the voice was gone.

Ha! Take it ke?…

Oh Lord, no, I won’t…I won’t let your blessings upon me go to waste…I would use them just as you have instructed…thank you Lord…and I joyously went on my way…

Later, I began to ask myself several questions; When the blessings begin to flow Over & Out, I would know, wouldn’t I? Or how do I know whether or not I’m obeying the instruction?

I concluded that when God blesses you, and it begins to flow over & out, it would be obvious for the world to see…there would be no hiding or denying it!

*****

That, my dear folks, is the TRUE LIFE STORY of OVER and OUT…and to all those who have indeed taken the time to visit Over and Out online, I say a very BIG thank you, and to those who have taken the next step by actually patronising a sister, I say anoda very BIG thank you + God bless you real good…I hope you are enjoying your all-natural products…Remember, if you are interested in the business opportunity, I’d also love to hear from you…cheers all!!!
