Gratitude for this year

I haven't written here in a while; I am away from home at the moment and that is one reason why I have not been able to write .

Where do I start? It was a great day yesterday with extended family and I'm glad we got an invitation to step out of our house.

And I have great hopes for 2011 especially because I have one single-minded intention: to immerse myself in the things of God some more. I think I have also matured a lot from the failed relationships of the past year and like a snake sloughing itself, I have come forth more thoughtful and shrewd about myself and my failings.

Lord, I commit myself to You once again and look forward to 2011. With Your Help, all the impossible things will surely become possible, Amen.

Thank You for today, Amen.

An amazing day

I had an amazing day today with my mentor; I got to spend several hours with her and fellowship with her and it was just such a blessing and such an honour to be with her for so long with very little to distract.

A time is going to come when she will not have a lot of time to be with a lot of people one on one, so today was an opportunity not to miss.

And I got us an invitation over Christmas which is so very cool with a beloved aunty of mine; it will be such a change for the kids and I.

Alas I got back and realized that Son no. 3 missed out on a school outing. Lord, please bring deliverance in whatever form and quickly. In all things I give thanks and I keep moving forward, Amen.

Thank You so much for today, Amen.

Breakthrough one way or the other

Lord, please grant us a breakthrough one way or the other in our group of believing and praying friends. I wish my kids would be more obedient and godly and I wish I could hear something tangible about Sikakrom as well or dream about that desire.
Lord, break through in one way or the other on our behalf. Break through!

Just another entry

It has been a very cold day today; did not do my main work today but had the opportunity to catch up on some paperwork. Tomorrow might also be that relaxing. I do enjoy my work but I also get bored with doing the same stuff daily so it was nice to do something else today.
I hope to start my writing assignment soon.
Thank You, Lord for today, Amen.

Good health

I have been well and I have been ill and yes, being well is a big blessing indeed. I have had the flu for about a week now and had to take four whole days off school. Not funny at all but by God's grace I managed to make it into school today.

Lessons learnt: invest in my health and also lay off the things that do me no good. Things like salt, sugar and treats. I have to eat some more fruit and try to exercise. The fruits and veg bit should be straightforward; it is the exercise part that is a challenge.

Lord, help me do the right things for the long-term gains, Amen.
