25th of June; A constant reminder of God’s ultimate love, unending blessings, and unwavering favor.
On this day which the Lord has made, what am I thankful for?
I am thankful for the zeal and will to serve, despite all odds.
I am indeed thankful for my dear wife Ibijoke, our dear children, family, friends, associates, and most importantly, the good people of Lagos.
I am thankful for the good times, and the not so good ones, I’m thankful for the trying times, for they have definitely made me stronger and more resilient.
I am thankful for the will to embrace a life of service, possess a heart of compassion and to see a setback as an avenue for better things to come.
I have also resolved;
To continue to live a life of service
To not be so hard on myself (my heart is in the right place, and I always mean well)
To continue to serve without limit
To give without expectations
To love beyond limits
To be a beacon of hope
To be a reflection of God’s shining light
To work conscientiously, selflessly and tirelessly
To be giving of myself at all times, and
To work like no one’s watching.
So help me God. Amen.
