I am very much excited to be alive today. For some days now, I have been taking stock of my life and all I can say is waohhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. I can boldly say that God has been so good to me and this is my best year ever.Come 25th of December, I will be a year older. I feel like counting my blessings.
1. the greatest of all my blessings is that I am still a child of God. waoh, its been great maintaining and enjoying the walk with God.
2. I have been of immense help to many people. I see myself having a help ministry and this year was filled with many great opportunities to touch lives.I have seen myself going out of my way to do things for others. A friend asked how I have been able to do this, the answer is "I dont know". I just do whatever my hands and my heart finds to do.
3. It was a year of new things in my life. New accomodation, new job and many other new things that I can count.

Sincerely, I can keep up with this list but I need to pause here. Hey wait there, One more person to be mentioned though I am sure she might not see this she is not given to facebook.
I met you on 3rd of February and we became friends. We clicked despite our differences. It wasn't a long thing for me to know you are the one. All through the year, every moment spent with you have been worth the while. I can't wait to let you have my rings on your fingers. I feel like putting your full name here but you said you don't want facebook publicity. To those that can decode, my new name is Abraham. Next year is our year and Its a journey of great adventures. Thanks for allowing me into your life. I love you.
Okay, My final word for this year is the good new about next year. Victor Adeyemi use these words in a song in Daystar Xtain Center. It says
No limits, No boundaries
I see increase all around me
Stretch forth, Break forth
Release me, Enlarge my territory
I would always remain an INCURABLE OPTIMIST.
