Thankful Saturday V6

Hey peops, hope you all had a beautiful valentine's day...can't wait to hear from you guys on your hot and not so hot dates!:-)
Was meant to put this up yesterday but couldn't 'cos NoLimit was busy soaking all the fun in the world up..."no dulling" at all!!!London was agog over this so called Valentine's day celebration!!!...People were busy exchanging spit(borrowing Verastic Vera's term) all over the place...some just needed to get a room men!*sniff*sniff* not that I'm beefing them o...:-)...but seriously I am still amazed that 50% of marriages in the UK end in divorce...yet people show so much PDA(Public Display of Affection)...God help us all!

This thankfulness post has really helped me to see God in a new light...I am more conscious of happenings around me...by the way I just had a feeling of dejavu!!!...I think I've typed this before!lol ignore me...
Yeah...where was I?...I am more conscious of my environment...I need to keep thanking Him in all things right?

1) I am thankful for the Word...the entrance of the word brings light...

2)I am thankful for Doug's life...I'm thankful it was your laptop and NOT your life that was stolen...not to worry...you'll get a better one no doubt about it(by the way peops, he got robbed...pls show him some love!)

3)I am thankful for wisdom...in this our time, one needs a major dose of it to navigate the rough waters of life...y'all know having wisdom is better than wealth,it prolongs life and to top it all, it is the principal thing!!!
So now you know why I am thankful...:-)

4)I am thankful for Valentines day...hee hee hee!!! It was a day to see and observe how much we all want to love and be loved...it was a very interesting day I tell you...from the sad looking couple who's Val's day was just routine to the happy obviously newly weds, to the ones who have maintained the momentum to the "she doesn't know she's getting a red letter tonight" couple...
But to be honest love makes the world go round...okay so may be I should add that I'm thankful for LOVE!!!

5)I am thankful for provision...watching Slum Dog Millionaire made me grateful...guys if you haven't seen it...GRAB YOUR COPY...NOWWW!!! lol...okay that's the Nollywood way of saying it...but please check that film out @ the cinema...it is brilliant!It made me thankful...amongst other things...

6)I am also thankful for journey mercies for my folks...It is easy to take His grace for granted...I hear of plane crashes,car accidents and all the works but we're all still standing...biko* tell me why I shouldn't be thankful?

It's a new week,I am thankful that we're all alive to witness it...we've all been given another chance to enjoy life,to carry out that project,to love the unlovable(I sure have a handful of them in my life...who knows I may be one to somebody...lol the ironies of life!)...and to just BE....let's make every second count for us(and I'm talking to me right now...gosh!)...

By the way how is/are the new year resolution(s) going?I presume we're still on target...and if we're not...get right back on the track...lyfe happens...have a beautiful week people...and please can someone tell ALOTED to PLEASE update...

*Biko means Please in Ibo language

Thank God for sparing the life of one of us (Doug). It’s funny to note that so many are still in the Valentine mood. I heard so many did not go to work yesterday. Haba, is Valentine now a three-day event (14th to 17th)? Somebody tell me. My Val’s Day was super even though it didn’t actually happen as planned thanks to the crowd at hotspots and the downpour on the island. Thank God for his mercies notwithstanding and thank him for the gift of love. It is the best gift indeed.

Enkay said...

I'm thankful for your life!

I'm yet to read Doug's blog. Guess I'll do so right after this but I'll still join you in thanking God for his life.

God's WORD is our life! I'm deeply grateful for it.

God bless you!

Wow! I was wondering where all the new people on my blog came from. Didn't know you did this. I'm soooo touched I feel a little tear creeping out....yeah right. LOL

But really, thanks a bunch for the love No Limit. May the Good Lord keep your path away from those miscreants.

And don't worry, some of us had no one to show any PDA (lol) to either.

Thanks a bunch again girl! You just made me that much more loyal to you. LOL. And believe me, I can be an irritating bugger to my valued friends. Hehe. Ask Buttercup.
