The year gone by

I thank you Lord for the year gone by.
For helping me complete internship and leave CMC... FINALLY!!!
For joining bond and sticking it out though everyday I felt like running out screaming.
For mama and her trip to RJN.. like one bright ray of sunshine.
Dada's surgery and Vellore trip and everyone who made it possible.
For Shyla and how after all these years we still rock!!
For Sheen and Jaicy... Angels do live among us.

For Amos and all the birthday gifts! ;)
For Femi... The one thing I miss about college.
For Ranjan Bhaiya... the brother I always wanted.
For Bernice Di and Jonty... Vellore is now home.
For Martha... My very own bundle of joy.
For Anna... Mama and Dada's silver jubilee.. I wouldn't have been here without you... LITERALLY!!!
For things that worked out and those that didn't, I thank you Lord.
For the people I found and those I left behind, I thank you Lord.
For all the big events and small mercies, I thank you Lord.
I thank you Lord for the year gone by and all I ask is that for the year that is about to come, your presence will always go with me.

The God of all things

Lord, I thank you for everything.
Not only for the big things, and life's necessities, clothes, food, shelter.
But for the small things too...
Everyday mercies...
For the few minutes of extra sleep under a warm blanket on a cold winter morning.
For the hot coffee shared with friends.
For the flower from a friend as I come in to work.
For the off well-deserved.
For the phone call from loved ones just when you miss them the most.
For the long awaited parcel.
For the unexpected home made goodies.
For the still small voice that whispers thru your doubts...
... Lo I will be with you. Even to the end of time.
