An art we usually neglect, yet very important


thankful for this meal


to my Father and my God

for His goodness and mercy

plus His loving kindness

also, for all,  He has done for me and my family

and all the grace, and gifts upon our lives

wherefore, my heart is full

hence, I express it

Thankfulness is an art we usually neglect,

however, it’s extremely important.


Thankful for what we have

We have families


and jobs

also, coworkers who can support us in difficulty time or joyful ones

though they are not our core family

yet they play a major role in our lives.


A roof over our head

that car, that’s  not functioning really good

but we have a car, at least, right?

  we have one or two things going on for us

But, how we usually want things perfect

which is a fantasy

for life ain’t Not gonna be perfect, naturally speaking

whilst you are celebrating in one way

yet in another way, you could be struggling

Gratefulness is an attitude of the heart

hence, I have noticed, grateful people are happy people

their perception is of the half-full glass

instead of half-empty

therefore, they live a fulfilled life

because they know how to count their blessings.

even though they don’t have much.


Timothy 6:6-8

6. Yet true godliness with contentment is itself great wealth. 7. After all, we brought nothing with us when we came into the world, and we can’t take anything with us when we leave it. 8. So if we have enough food and clothing, let us be content.

I believe contentment:

or satisfaction


and being peaceful

is something we can learn

and it brings such much joy

Also, ungratefulness can be unlearned.


 The Lord has much for me, personally.

Personally, the Lord has done much for me

grateful for

my husband



and my cute twin grandbabies

whom I love very much!

I’ve seen His hand fighting my battles

thereby experienced His love

I know the Lord, personally

therefore, I thank God for salvation

for sending His Son on earth for me

For while I was a sinner,

yet Christ died for me who was ungodly.

He has answered my prayers

For some, He did not give me the answer as I anticipated

yet, He answered in one way or the other

hence I know He loves me

and has my best interests at heart

therefore, that  encourages me

This Scripture just hit me hard:

After all, we brought nothing with us when we came into the world, and we can’t take anything with us when we leave it

Wow! indeed we brought nothing into this world

thus we can take nothing physical when we leave

What an awakening statement!



 Grateful, for the Thanksgiving  meal

prepared by our daughter Carole. Parenting is a privilege; children are a heritage from the Lord

Here is what I got to say about it

firstly, house- full

therefore grateful

secondly, the table full

again, consequently grateful

thirdly, Stomach full

for that reason, appreciative

for being Full

to the full :)
