Monday 4th January 1988

my mama give birth to me

now am all grown up I am

twenty six years (26) as you can see .


I’ve made it this far by the grace

and love of my GOD, life

wasn’t always easy and still isn’t.

I am thankful for the pebbles and

boulders life threw at me. That’s

what made me who I am and who

i am willing to be.


All my trials God has sent for me…… sometimes

I wonder if it had not been for the

Lord on my side where in this world

would I be? Maybe bowing at Satan’s knee

or doing things that should not be.


I grew up in church from a new born baby

and since then my life to Him I owe. My

Saviour my Lord my praises to him I bestow.


Thank you Lord for all you done for me

for things to come and for blessings all

the way. Forgive me for my murmurings

and complaining to, and for all the times

that I’ve hurt you ……… Lord help me

to be a better person in 2014 .

      A beautiful birthday poem and prayer Jo. That food sure looks tempting, yum! Great pictures, Happy Birthday baby!

      Granny's cake looks good too, she sure must be doing OK to still be cooking! God bless you both.

      Jackie thank you and nothing seems to keep granny down, she still wants to do everything she use to do even if she can no longer do them. the secret is do not tell her she can't she will get UPSET , he he he. She use to bake and decorate cakes for weddings, christenings, birthdays, graduations etc.

      Happy Birthday dear Jo, for real this time! I love your poem and prayer. You were born the same year my son was. 88 is great! Looks like you had a blessed birthday and I pray the rest of the year is as well. My birthday is at the end of this month, on the 29th, so we are both January babies! Hugs, Faith Reaper

      You seemed to have had quite a party! Good for you! It's important to celebrate life! I find that each day is a special gift to be able to breath, to love or to be loved, to smile, to discover nature.... what a special gift to be alive! Enjoy the road!

      The Mud Slide Drink seemed to be my kind of drink ;-) I am glad that you were pampered by your family and friends on that special day!

      God bless you!

      From my blog, Writing Memorable Words Wednesday, September 9, 2009A Little Alliterative Commentary on Idiotic IdiomsAll Litter RationalizedBy Susan L. Lipson“My bad!” they say,Moralizing minor mistakes,Like lnaeivg litter lying,Forgetting familiar faces,Dripping dirty dishwater,Clumsily creating clutter,Erroneously erasing email,Instilling immorality in innocent interactions just by saying, My bad.”Whatever happened to “Oops—sorry”?

      We are imrotpant and our lives are imrotpant, magnificent really, and their details are worthy to be recorded. The truth of these words has been revealed to me over the last few months, Joanna. We should never take life for granted or make judgments about what constitutes worthiness in another person's life. We should indeed be thankful for the writers who record life's details..-= Brad Shorr s last blog ..Elevate Your Mood with Food =-.
