My phone has been ringing since 11ish as I have friends and family in Naij and they are one hour behind . It feels so good to hear and read those three words, ‘Happy Birthday Temi’. I am indeed a very happy bunny today. I must add that I have gotten to that stage in life where after saying happy birthday to you, people proceed to declare, ‘this time next year…’ You know what follows *wink* Lol. I have noticed that it comes more from all my mummies and aunties, bless them.
I am so grateful to God for the grace He has bestowed upon me and the opportunity to add one more year to my days. I do not take His mercies in my life for granted at all. Thank you Jesus. Thanks guys for all the BBM status and display picture dedications, text messages, facebook messages, calls and many more. Keep ’em coming, the day is still young hehehe.
I just want to leave you with my best song in the whole wide world. It sums up me.
In Christ alone my hope is found;
He is my light, my strength, my song;
This cornerstone, this solid ground,
Firm through the fiercest drought and storm.
What heights of love, what depths of peace,
When fears are stilled, when strivings cease!
My comforter, my all in all—
Here in the love of Christ I stand.
In Christ alone, Who took on flesh,
Fullness of God in helpless babe!
This gift of love and righteousness,
Scorned by the ones He came to save.
Till on that cross as Jesus died,
The wrath of God was satisfied;
For ev’ry sin on Him was laid—
Here in the death of Christ I live.
There in the ground His body lay,
Light of the world by darkness slain;
Then bursting forth in glorious day,
Up from the grave He rose again!
And as He stands in victory,
Sin’s curse has lost its grip on me;
For I am His and He is mine—
Bought with the precious blood of Christ.
No guilt in life, no fear in death—
This is the pow’r of Christ in me;
From life’s first cry to final breath,
Jesus commands my destiny.
NO POWER OF HELL, NO SCHEME OF MAN
CAN EVER PLUCK TEMI FROM HIS HAND
TILL HE RETURNS OR CALLS ME HOME
HERE IN THE POW’R OF CHRIST I’LL STAND!
And another I love just for the one who birthed me 🙂
And this is self-dedicated 🙂
