Thanks to God My Father!

Dear Father,



I thank You that some twenty something years ago, I was born.



I thank You that though I was a 6 month old baby born three months premature, hadnt developed my lungs fully and some other organs, and that even though my parents gave up hope sometimes as the stress was too much and i always had one form of complication or another, that You sent my sweet sweet doctor who strongly believed i would survive!!!!!! and survive i did!!!!!!!! I thank you because now I know you intentionally made sure I survived and made everything special about me!



I thank You for the spirit and the soul You put inside the beautiful container i call my body! I thank you because You are teaching me everyday to be a better person. God I thank You for Your creativity in my life! You sure went all out!!!! I didnt make me who I am but You did, so I thank You for all!!!



I thank You because I am not perfect but You are and I thank You for loving me sooooooo much!!! Hi Jesus, I thank You for coming down into this world to become a lowly human to die for my sins and thanks for sending me dearest padi/teacher/counsellor Holy Spirit too...



I thank You for the best gift You have given me this year and that is growth...



I thank You for the family members you surround me with...I thank you for my dear friends, both the ones I know well and the ones I don't know so well..(blog fam)...



I thank You for the hard times I've been through, the bad experiences and the people who have tried to hurt me or take something away from me. It has only made me stronger and much closer to You!!



I thank You for the things You want to do and people You want to touch through my life. I thank You that I know all is not going to be through my strength but by You. Just give me the grace and be with me and I know I will be fine!



Hhmm.. I can go on and on and on, but Lord U see my heart! Cant THANK U ENOUGH!



Lastly, I use this opportunity to pray for every person I know of in this life and everyone reading this, that You will show them the love You have shown me and that they will have their hearts' desires In Jesus Name. Especially for people who want to get married or have children... I pray they will have their dreams that You will give them testimonies better than mine!



THANK YOU MY FATHER IN HEAVEN!



i know its a great year already!



~Mimi~



Did I say I love You? Yes I Really Do.

The Pseudo-Independent said...

you ehn - i just saw your comment on pink-satins page. You lie about blogsville not being ready for your voice. The truth is this: It's because you know we are all going to soooo love your voice and because you will not be able to handle the attention you will be getting lol :)
Its Monday today, hope you have a great day and God bless

I am a day late...but it is the thought that counts...Happy Belated Birthday...I hope you got my special package to you? I sent it thru Fed-Ex & UPS...so remember to always look out the window every five minutes...
On a serious note though...
"May the Holy Spirit be the delight of your heart, so that your feet are kept on a level path...Amen"

Love,

Miss Opeke
