TGIF 2.2

         It’s another day to be thankful, and I have lots of reasons to be grateful.      

       First and foremost, I am grateful for journey mercies on behalf of papa naijagirl; he travelled and I was concerned due to constant report of dreams of kidnap and other stuff. God confirmed his words “who is it that speaks and it comes to pass when the almighty has not yet ordained it?”

       I am grateful for God’s divine favor this week, especially today. I missed my flight for my trip and was almost frustrated by the airline (delta…..worst airline in my judgment), but at the end of the day, God showed himself strong and granted me a ticket and safe trip.

       I am grateful for good health for my sister; she had surgery yesterday and the area for surgery was so sensitive that the anesthetic did not work on her, but she was still able to bear the pain. She’s doing better with no complication…………the devil thought he had me, but ahhhhhh I run.

       I am grateful for peace; peace of God that passes every understanding of man. Peace that you experience when everything around you is in turmoil but you look at yourself and realize that you have peace within you. Peace that comes on you even when nothing makes sense.

       Today, I saw a blind couple being led by their walk dogs and it made me appreciate the gift of eyesight. You will never value your eyesight until you lose it. You will never value your ability to sleep and wake up in the morning, until you lay in bed for hours turning and begging for sleep to come. You will never appreciate what it means to walk on your two legs until you lose them……no need to wait until you lose what you have before you appreciate them. Just for few seconds, look at yourself from head to toe and take time to appreciate the beauty that is you. Take those few seconds to thank God for different things about yourself…..you will be glad you did.    

      I am grateful for the insignificant things that make life worthwhile……can you think of anything?

  2. Now that blind couple with a watchword ad is really touching and humbling.
    No doubt we are all guilty of complainig and murmuring against God about “why?”, “when?”, “how?”…. we pray the good Lord gives us the grace to develop our weak sides – “A thankful heart”.
