TGIF 1.9

       Oh! How the days run…..Just another opportunity for me to say “Thank God it’s Friday”

I am grateful for mercy

        God’s mercy gives you a suspended sentence when you know what you deserve but didn’t get it. One beautiful thing about mercy is that you ask for mercy from someone who has power, in other words, you cannot receive mercy from someone who is not in a position to offer it.

        When you are not good with money but your car hasn’t been repossessed, your house hasn’t been foreclosed; your lights are still working……that’s mercy

     When you have drank couple of times and your kidney is still working….that’s mercy

      When you have slept around and never got any STD or HIV……that’s mercy

      When you have stolen something at any point in your life and never went to jail…..that’s mercy

       When you have been late at work or defaulted at work but still got your job…..that’s mercy

        I am grateful for a job I completed this week and the good evaluation from it

       I am grateful for the goat head I am eating now….mmmmh, yummy
