Here I am again with my thankfulness post...and I am glad I am finally able to update since Saturday...been a bit under the weather...just a bit...but I'm back now!!!
Here we go:
I am thankful for:
1.Journey Mercies: Like I said earlier, I went off to Paris and came back back in one piece!(In my mind I said:"duh were you meant to come back in disjointed pieces)...but y'all know all these planes and the way they crash or crash land!!!..no hitch whatsoever...I am thankful for that!!!
2.The opportunity to help:I also talked about helping out a random cute dude...there's just something about helping others(not because they are cute o!) that gives you this satisfaction...I can't explain it with words...especially when you're helping out on your own terms...I guess that's how God feels when He helps us on His own terms!!!...I'm my father's daughter after all ~wink~wink~
3. Provision: Imagine I was d-e-d broke and didn't have a brass farthing to my name...I sure won't have been able to pay for the extra charge on my ticket and would have missed a wonderful trip to Paris...
4.My Church and the people: I love my church and the people...they are wonderful inside and outside and they are very amazing...at least the ones I know...
you know how they say: You don't judge a book by its cover, they give a whole new meaning to that...when people tell you what they've been through(the process) and how God refined them...you begin to wonder if you would have survived if it was you...at least I do...so yeah...I am thankful for them folks!!!
5.Wonderful people I've encountered on blogville...I'll say it and I'll keep saying it...this place is an amazing pot-pourri of highly intelligent and amazing people...to think I used to think only nerds and "no-lifers" write journals online!!!( errrmmm don't scream on me now...I have repented o!!!)...please temper justice with mercy!!!
6.Mercy and the Blood that was shed to redeem me of my sins...Was going through Leviticus and honestly I'm just glad to be born @ such a time as this...'cos meeeeeennnn I would have been doing some major daily sacrifices o!...God is merciful abeg!!!
7.For YOU...yes you the person reading this post right this second...I am thankful for your eyes...that you can see what I posted....for your hands...without it...you won't be able to click on this page...conveniently...for your brain...trust me only brainy people come here :-)...for that smile...'cos I know you're smiling right now!!!
and I leave y'all with this...
i.Learn to thank God for the good that is emerging instead of brooding over any loss that has been sustained!!!
ii.God uses frustrating circumstances to prune us for fruit bearing(I have a story on that one...a budding story!)...And the lessons we learnt will go deeper as we share with others...Expression deepens impression
