Hey Tribe! How are you are are all doing today? I trust you are having a good day. I am well, thanks for asking. November is almost over and in a few days from now, we will be in December. I smell Christmasssssss! No darling, no pressure from here. I am just reminiscing on my childhood, you know na, I'm a village girl and by now we are already making plans to paint the town (no, sorry) village red. I can almost picture myself in my pleated flowery dress and high heeled sandals AKA koi koi shoe. You can read up on one of my experiences wearing my koi koi shoe by clicking  HERE (Please don't laugh *side eye at you if you do*) Oh! I am thinking of packing my bags already! Focus SemeGold, we aren't here to talk about your village life. Sigh! Ok, so it's Friday and I wanted to do a little through back, Flashback Friday kinda thing. Last week was my Aunty's 60th birthday and retirement party and when I got an invitation from her two weeks earlier I knew I had no choice b


Hey Tribe! How are you all doing? I am well too, thanks for asking. I am sharing this awesome testimony by our dear Tribe sister, Olaitan Onifade Nurudeen.  THE FLAME... Saturday 17th October 2020. I had woken up at 7 am and remembering hubby would leave for Ibadan that day, woke him too. He sleepily said he would leave home at 7.30. So I made a mental calculation to make something quick. I woke my 16 year old niece to put some water on the fire to make some pasta. I followed her almost immediately to quicken things.  On getting to the kitchen she was about to place the pot of water on the large gas cooker. I had suggested she used the small camp gas instead as it was faster. I would later learn she had mistakenly turned on the knob for the gas oven and had not turned it off before I came into the kitchen. Consequently, the gas had seeped into the air and I had a poor sense of smell lately.  She had attempted to light the camp gas and couldn't, so I took the lighter from her to ret


Knock knock! Who is there? I was going to say 'Hey Tribe' as usual,    but I wasn't sure if anyone was at home, lol. Seriously, it's been a while here. How are you all doing? I am well myself, thanks for asking.  Special appreciation to all The SemeTribe for always keeping the conversations going here. I can always fly because you gave me wings to. Thank you.

_ Happy new month people! November is that you? *dancing and singing* "one more river to cross, one more river, one more river to cross"  Yes! one more lap to go and we will be saying goodby to the year 2020. someone asked me yesterday to describe in one word the month of October that just passed and I said I will be needing an extra sheet to describe the just concluded month.  October for us especially in Nigeria started in high spirit being that October 1st marked Nigerian independence. Nigerians were optimistic that at least we will be seeing an improved country as an independence gift but the reverse was the case in the next proceeding cause of events. Nigerians got tired of the extrajudicial killing, injustice, and corruption of the police and decided to rise and fight for our rights in form of a protest, but rather than come down to the level of its citizens and dialogue for a way forward, the government decided to go the other way and opened up fire on unarmed proteste

Hey Tribe!  And our new visitors, Were you bullied down here? *smiles* Welcome! May I use this opportunity to formally welcome you to my blog, The Semes Nooks Blog, where we share stories and life experiences.  No, scratch that! Seriously it's my birthdayyyyyyyy people! I am shouting this at the top of my voice.  I dare say the just concluded year has been my most amazing year yet. So many intriguing stories I am reminiscing upon right now, and boy! I did outdo yourself. Over the years, I have learned the act of thanksgiving, even in the face of obscurity. As I count my blessings in this new year I am counting you all. I am so grateful for having such amazing people like you in my life. I am grateful for my journey and how far God has brought me.  I am grateful for you all who constantly hold my hands as I walk through life and it's many phases. I am so up in the sky now because you all gave me wings to fly.  So, I would just share a little good news with you about Jesus. Jesus


Good morning Tribe!  I trust you all are doing ok today. I am well, thank you. I am introducing you or should I say, reintroducing you to my worship corner this morning ( please search through the blog and read up on all our post tagged "My worship corner").  In the face of uncertainty, and with all  that's happening around the world, one is bound to lose Faith and give in to fear, but Grace is made available and so we are reaffirming God's Word today.  "For God has not given us a spirit of fear but of power, and of love,  and of a sound mind". 2  Timothy 1:7 As you set out today, be reminded that Christ alone is our hope and in Him is the foundation for everything whatsoever. Take some time out to meditate on this song. I hope it blesses you as much as it has blessed me. Your worship is your weapon. Child of God, breath on it! No Longer slave: Lyrics by Bethel Music. You unravel me, with a melody You surround me with a song Of deliverance, from my enemies T
