  1. you've learned alot of things about you... it's always good to be able to recognize things about ourselves and ask God to help with it...

    I think we all blinked and January zoomed by o... because this one that next week is mid february.... I also need to get cracking on my "to do" list for the year... for the month... kinda like GoodNaijaGirl did

    My devotional taught on convictions on Monday and was enjoined to write our personal convictions. In life one of the greatest lessons I have learnt is about God: With God I'm unstoppable but without God I am as empty as EMPTY can be!

    have a great february

  3. Good to see you've been missed!

  4. That's life, all about learning. I pray that the peace of God continue to rule and reign in your heart and life in Jesus name. I do trust you're feeling better, looking forward to... You are blessed and highly favoured.

  5. I thank God for the opportunity to learn even when things don't go the way we want..
    Glad you're back on your feet is well!

  6. I'm glad that you were able to turn to God when things weren't going well and look at all the wonderful things you learned (or were reminded of!).

    I'm not pleased with how fast this year is going. If I'm not careful it'll be June and I'll be wondering where half the year went.

    Have a lovely and productive February, Favoured One :)

  7. Life is like a school!
    Every experience is a lesson learned and when we die, we graduate...those who come out in distinctions to greater glory...those who don't...well..

  8. ;) but we pulled through!!
