One Sweet Day

About 10:40 pm yesterday,I said on Facebook that Lanre is about to blank in one hour and twenty minutes. (You will find out the answer at the end of this blog).

Later my brother who is in the Navy at Patuxent River,Maryland comes in the room and he tells me something.

He also gave me a card that said "To have a caring,humble,intelligent and driven brother like you is not a gift but a blessing. God loves you and he has something great in stock for you. He has started moving in your life and he wont stop moving until he perfects what he has started. Your business shall flourish inspite of the bad economy. You shall be elevated financially in Jesus name. I love you. (Blank)

My big brother who is in Nigeria sent me an e-mail. It said. ( Blank) It is well with you in Jesus name. I want you to know that we are all very proud of you and the world is ernestly awaiting your manifestation. Keep your eyes on the ball as you have done. The race of life in individual and very unique; no two people have it the same but we all have a testimony.You have done well and I you will yet do greatly.( Blank ) cos you deserve it. Bobo (His wife) is not in town so she can not send a message untill later she woke me up to remind me that I must not forget. She will reach you too .Stay blessed.

My dear sweet God loving,God fearing,caring,loves everyone mother left me like three messages on my cellphone. I finally called her and we talked. She gave me words of encouragement,prayed for me,said that she is proud of me,loves me and she is always praying for me (My mom probably prays for me more than I pray for myself-And I pray a lot).Besides the love of God of course,there is nothing like the love of a loving mother.

My other sister in law called and left me a message. She then handed the phone to my brother who said something nice before he hung up.

Debbie Malone, Realtor (R), Lynchburg, Smith Mountain Lake, VA (RE/MAX 1st Olympic)  Debbie Malone, Realtor (R), Lynchburg, Smith Mountain Lake, VA    (RE/MAX 1st Olympic): Real Estate Agent in Lynchburg, VA and Rebecca Levinson, Real Estate Marketing Consultant (Real Skillz-Clear Marketing for Your Real Estate Vision) Rebecca Levinson, Real Estate Marketing Consultant (Real Skillz-Clear Marketing for Your Real Estate Vision): Real Estate - Other in Lake Geneva, WI were both nice enough to leave me a message on my Facebook profile.

A Mortgage company in our building even called me. (I wish they can give me some great leads next time they call).

Two of my cousins in Bowie,Maryland left me a message on my Facebook profile.

No matter how you feel,it is great to hear many nice words and words of encouragement from loved ones and friends. The barrage of nice words and wishes brought me to tears. God has been so good to me. Its okay to cry. Psalm 126:5 says that "Those who sow in tears shall reap in joy. My tears were definitely tears of Joy. There is nothing wrong with crying. Jesus wept. When I think of all of the blessings that he has bestowed upon me,I am thankful. If it wasn't for God's Grace,where would I be.

2008 was a very tough year for me. So I need the great kind words from my family members and friends today. This year is going to be a great year for me in all of the areas of my life and my prayer to you is that God bless you this year so much that you won't have enough room to receive it- Amen.

Sometimes the best gift you can receive from someone is "Words of encouragement and great wishes". Today is my birthday. I turned 18 again for the 15th time-LOL. You do the math. 18+15 = My age. Today was"One Sweet Day".

Glad to hear that you are having a more encouraging day.  Are you big into the affirmations? I have started doing that and I think it does make a difference

Lanre, I hope you know how many people truly care about you.  You are such a kind, gentle soul and I consider you a friend.  You were always there for me when I first joined AR and I leaned on you for commenting on my posts, when others wouldn't.  That meant the world to me...you'll never know how special I think you are.  If you EVER need anything..a voice, an ear...I'm hear for you. I'm an email or phone call away my friend. I don't call you "my friend" lightly either.  You are the best Lanre.  Good things ARE going to happen to you, soon!

Lanre, I've had an awesome day and to read your post just now has made it perfect. I hope you had a wonderful birthday. Your post really touched me. Family is so important. For you to have saved family members who are thinking about you and praying for you is to know you are truly blessed.

My math skills are fuzzy, so I'll just say I'm your slightly older sister in Christ. Happy Birthday my brother!
