WATCH THIS FIRST
There are many things I could say today. But all I am is Thankful. On sunday we had a big deliverance service at church and if you watched the above clip, it was reenacted during the service and I wanted to share... I feel it relays such a potent message... liberating... Im so thankful to God for seeing me through all my mess... and there's plenty of that... seeing me through some of my addictions and slowly helping me overcome them. And while I struggle to be a better person and I feel like Im sinking back into my old destructive ways... Im glad that He's always there even if sometimes I feel like He's not. That's actually what I got out of watching it... He's Always there. Im just thankful to God for letting me see another day... another year and I know that maybe Im not all that he wants me to be yet... but God Im trying and I will be better!
so really it's my birthday but it's not really about me today... it's really about God... giving God the glory... thanking Him for the physical manifestation of his Love, Jesus Christ.... gosh... so many many things I could say... things I can wish for... but it all falls short when compared to giving Glory to God....
I went out late last night and got myself a little cake and candles... I've just been on this "high" .... went up and down the aisle looking for my favorite irish cream... but I didnt find any... I'll probably get some today. So many good things have happened this month... two of my friends gave birth recently... another one is due soon... October is the PERFECT MONTH... the tenth month... 10 represents perfection in divine order. Anyways... yall have a piece of this raspberry-swirl vanilla cake... and enjoy some drinks (emu, sprite, red wine or champagne) on me!!!
Biodun was first in wishing me a Happy Birthday on monday... ojoro... The lovely Jaycee called and sang me happy birthday and she sounded so lovely... . my friend *P* was the first official call I received... my room-mate, Ola send me a text message then rushed upstairs and sang me happy birthday and I wanted to cry.... and so far Ive received a couple of calls and text messages... but wait o... no gift... maybe these people didnt get my wish list....
I WANT A GUITAR AND A GEORGE FOREMAN GRILL..

Happy Birthday to all the beautiful people born in October... Allied on the 16th and Niyi, the great commenter a day after.... and If I remember from last year, LondonBuki's brother and NaijaBloke's cousin share this month with me.. so a special shout out to them
This is my theme song for the day It's by Hezekiah Walker and it's titled Grateful
and this is my prayer for today
Isaiah 11:2->Father, incubate me in the spirit of wisdom, understanding, counsel, might, knowledge, and the fear of the Lord, in Jesus' Name... Amen
