Yeah, the popular film is 300, but this about to be popular post is 30…
I’m clocking 30 on the 4th of August, 2007 that’s Saturday, and I’m celebrating it on the same day between 4-6pm at the Little saints Orphanage at Palmgrove like I did last year. I feel a bit funny talking about my age like most people, but for me, that age is a benchmark age for me. Three of the bible characters that inspire me the most, entered into the full realm of their missions at 30.
Jesus started his full time ministry at 30
David became King in Isreal at 30
Joseph became prime minister in Egypt at 30
Early this year, during my time of meditation, God impressed it on my heart, that I was about the age of his Son, when he was on earth, and that I should stop limiting myself.
John the baptist was thirtish when the media of his time classified him as the voice.
Martin Luther King Jr was thirtish when he registered the words -“I have a dream” on the sands of time.
Here is a clip of a record about Martin Luther Jr that inspires me
Martin Luther King, Jr., (January 15, 1929-April 4, 1968)
In the eleven-year period between 1957 and 1968, King traveled over six million miles and spoke over twenty-five hundred times, appearing wherever there was injustice, protest, and action; and meanwhile he wrote five books as well as numerous articles. In these years, he led a massive protest in Birmingham, Alabama, that caught the attention of the entire world, providing what he called a coalition of conscience. and inspiring his “Letter from a Birmingham Jail”, a manifesto of the Negro revolution; he planned the drives in Alabama for the registration of Negroes as voters; he directed the peaceful march on Washington, D.C., of 250,000 people to whom he delivered his address, “l Have a Dream”, he conferred with President John F. Kennedy and campaigned for President Lyndon B. Johnson; he was arrested upwards of twenty times and assaulted at least four times; he was awarded five honorary degrees; was named Man of the Year by Time magazine in 1963; and became not only the symbolic leader of American blacks but also a world figure.
In the Jewish Nation when you clock 30, you enter your decade of reigning. In an article writen by a great friend of mine Tope Ogunfayo here you can get to learn a lot more about the other decades. If it’s not happening to you yet, don’t worry, the decade is 10yrs.
Last week, one of the girls from Little Saints came with one of her aunties to my office, she asked me if I’ll still be celebrating my birthday with them this year. I told her that I have not yet been able to think of a better way. So… come August 4, 2007 Saturday, I’ll be celebrating my birthday at the Little Saints Orphanage. It’s 6b D’alberto Road, Palmgrove Estate, Palmgrove. It’s the road beside the petrol station at Palmgrove B/S. I also want to use this birthday as an opportunity to raise N1,000,000 only for the orphanage. I know you may say there are poorer orphanages that require help, I know this orphanage is well managed, I’ve been there, and I know that they can do more, with more. I’ll be writing them the minimum of N1,000,000 check on that day, so if you want to be a part, just credit my account ahead (GTBank 223863354110 – Adeolu Akinyemi). If nobody credits my account, I’ll bear it fully.
About 100 of the children who grew up in this orphanage will be present with us, they’ll dance, sing, and generally give us an opportunity to share our warmth and laughter.
I’m dedicating this August to Charitable acts. God has been very good to me, trying to count my blessings is herculean. We get, because the divine trusts us to give to those who without their own choices live below their potentials.
