Another Year!


I am a year older today!
I am a year wiser too (I hope)......
I am thankful to God.
I am hopeful.
I am expectant...and
I am very, very, very, very, very glad to be alive!

( This past year I have known the death of many promising, strong and good people ( that in my own opinion did not deserve to die, at least, not yet!) more than before)

I think this is just going to be a thankful birthday!
I think I should just take is eazzey.......and party......
I think I should sit, count my blessings one after the other
I think I should thank God for all the people I have been blessed with.
I think I should celebrate love…….and life.
I think I should beat the drums for the joys, the victories, and blissful moments of the past year, I think I should just not dwell so much on the disappointments, the losses, and the failures of the year past.



In the past year..........................
I have seen the mighty fall, and the weapon of war taken away from them,
I have seen money fail so many people,
I have also been reminded that no man in infallible, that the best of men is still just a man,
I have also seen that not everyone that calls himself your friend really is one sincerely,
I have learnt to walk with the wise and seek wisdom
I have received so much mercy, seen the favour, and preferential treatment of God,
I have seen that God has a way of showing up especially when we have given up and lost hope

In the past year, I came to this realization....

There is only one thing that we can all be sure of - NOTHING! (No position, status, income, people....) except God.


I need you to look less at the disheartening things that seem to abound, you just might find a silver lining……..
I need you to look out for people who celebrate you, and who would bring out the best in you, you know you deserve more……
I need you to be more thankful, God never ignores a thankful heart, He also never forgets, and you will never be the same when you adopt a thankful lifestyle……
I need you to laugh more, dance more, and invest more in things that make you really really happy……….
I need you to keep it simple, to have child-like faith again. There is truly beauty in simplicity.
I need you to be all you can be, dream big and reach for the highest height.


I need to remind myself more importantly to never forget to apply to my life ALL I have written above.

And finally, I need you to wish me HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

"I need you to laugh more, dance more, and invest more in things that make you really really happy………." (I did not want to add this!)

I need you to keep it simple, to have child-like faith again. (This made me smile and think when did i firget to do this?)
There is truly beauty in simplicity. (Holy Ghost help me remember this)

I need you to be all you can be, dream big and reach for the highest height (I yield to the holy ghost, i know he's the only one that can lead me to become all that i can be, not better than someone else).

Olufunke,
So you had a birthday!! I loved how you celbrated it here. That was an awesome way to put it down. So that next year or more from here..you can see how you did at your desired comittments here. I may borrow your idea here, when my birthday time rolls around. Hopefully I'll remember :)

I just want to thank you for connecting on the Bridge. Your comment was encouraging. Thanks for picking up the pencil to let me know that you were there.

I didn't recognize your name but when I ame to your comments, I recognized many commenters ....so I feel at home. I'm now following you today. I can't wait until you do a current post. You seem to have a way with words from what a read here.

I praise the Lord for His gifts in you and for the blessing that He has bestowed on others because of your personal relationship with HIm.

Praise be to God for HIs indescribable gift ..in YOU.

HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY!!!

Keep growing closer to Jesus
