Ten Things Tuesday (11)

Welcome to another TTT series. Here's a link to my last TTT

  1. This is the fourth week of the new year. I am thankful for the precious gift of life, grace and protection.
  2. Up until last week, I didn't realise I had taken my job for granted. On Sunday in Church, my Pastor asked those who were out of work to come out for prayer and to my uttermost shock almost half of the church came out! I was humbled immediately and gave thanks to God that despite the credit crunch I still have a job to go to everyday.
  3. I am thankful for the work God is doing in my Church. It is such a joy to see people coming to know the Lord
  4. My grandma had a partial stroke last week. I was quite scared and worried. At first I was not sure what prayer to pray considering she is very old (over 95, even at that age she is still very active and goes to the market!), but writefreak reminded me that God's promised is that we will be in perfect health (thanks for the reminder). It dawned on me that God did not put an age limit to this promise so that means even if it is time for Mama to go, it is not with sickness. I shared this word with my parents and we have continued to pray. I am thankful she is improving and I know her healing is complete in Jesus name.
  5. Baale and I celebrated our first year wedding anniversary last week. I am thankful for a wonderful one year together and I believe it can only get better. I am thankful for the wonderful man Baale is.
  6. I know this sounds like a broken record already, but I am thankful for being featured in Standtall's weekly interview last week. I am still the ruling celeb! LOL. If you still haven't read (or finished reading) the interview, rush there NOW. Abeg let me enjoy it while it lasts. :)
  7. I am thankful for those that have decided to take part in the TT series on different days. Really proud of you guys. You know yourselves. ;o)
  8. I am thankful for this weather, even though it is very cold and gloomy, some people have it even worse and I do not envy them for one sec.
  9. I am thankful for my friends including those I have made on blogville
  10. Writefreak and I launched a joint blog yesterday. Please check it out and we hope you'll be a part of what we are doing.

So what are you thankful for???


  1. I am thankful, we are both thankful for our jobs. God thank you. And I pray that God helps all those this year who are believing him for a job, nothing is too difficult for God to do.

  2. But Gosh, u'all are prolific writers... I'm first still...:)

  3. I'm thankful for Life.....and the fact that I'm happy and have found peace.
    Hey Congrats to you and and Oluwadee give me hope on the marriage scene.

  4. Hmmm... abt your job... I guess it's all abt wishin for a new shoe and meetin someone without legs... makes u appreciate wat u have.

    I'm thankful for being... 3rd!!!

  5. As always, I am thankful for the gift of life. I join you in your thankful mood to thank God for everything you listed!

    Thank God!

  6. Fanny- I say a big amen to your prayer...thanks for the compliment :)

    Sirus- Awww there is surely hope..especially with the right man

    FBA- Praiseeeeeeee da Lord. I am thankful that FineBoy Agbero visited my blog today and left a comment :)

    I still don't believe u are an agbero

    Dee! u dey? yes o...its good to have a thankful mood :)

  7. alotedbabe, read ur last post too but couldn't leave a i'm thankful for this year , i thot last year was bad, but now i realise it was just a learning process and now I'm so happy with the person God has made me..I'm thankful also that I am not in the line of fire of the credit crunch...and I'm thankful for a million other things...

  8. Haba look how this girl called me out "(or finished reading)"! I didn't still finish reading the embarrassing! I blame gmail and the friends who distract me on it :).

    Great list o! Congrats on launching a new blog.

    And Writefreak's words regarding being promised good health are very interesting! Nowadays, when someone says their relative is sick or is dying and you find out they're old, the reaction is often to say that they lived a good life and you figure it's time for them to go but you're right that God is the one who controls this. May God continue to provide healing for your grandmother.

  9. I am thankful to God for what He's doing in your life and for His numerous blessings!
    Thank God for grandma and thank God for our new blog!
