“Blessed be the name of God, forever and ever. He knows all, does all: He changes the seasons and guides history, He raises up kings and also brings them down, he provides both intelligence and discernment, He opens up the depths, tells secrets, sees in the dark – light spills out of him! God of all my ancestors, all thanks! All praise! You made me wise and strong. And now you’ve shown us what we ask for….”

I am most thankful for and grateful to DH, he understood my passion especially for writing and putting it online. You should know how uneasy it is to put your private life online for everyone to read, DH did not only permit this, he supported me in all my way [watch out for something big from him coming soon].
I am especially thankful in this year’s Thanksgiving Day because when I looked back today a year ago, I cannot but be very grateful to God who is the greatest healer. I did a post on what the illness was here. I never believed I would ever come out of it but I thank God who sits on His throne and controls the affairs of men, He knew rightly that it was not time for my life to take a bad turn because I still have a lot of lands to cover.
I am thankful to God and grateful to everyone, you being there matters the world to me because when I achieve my desire with this blog, I will always remember that I got there because you supported me.
I weighed in at 167lbs, it is a 1 pound loss for me. I have been really busy these days, thanks to FlyLady. I will share this in the next post and some more interesting ways to keep fit.
