The Power of Friendship

Two are better than one,
because they have a good return for their work
If one falls down,
his friend can help him up.
But pity the man who falls
and has no one to help him up!

Also, if two lie down together,
they will keep warm.
But how can one keep warm alone?

Though one may be overpowered,
two can defend themselves.
A cord of three strands is not quickly broken

The words of the Teacher in Ecclesiastes 4:9-12.

For SY

you came into my life
and saw beyond
beyond my smile to my tears
beyond my calm to my fears
beyond my words to my heart

you came into my life
and made me realise
realise that it's ok to be me
realise that I can trust again
realise I have what it takes

you came into my life
and showed me
showed me what friendship is all about
about giving
and being there

So I thank God for you, for your prayers and your patience. Thanks for being a friend, prayer partner, big sister, supporter's club and counsellor all rolled in one. My prayer for you is that God continually take you from level to level and always give you an UNCOMMON TESTIMONY.

I just want to remind everyone to take time to thank God for the people who He has brought into your life and to thank and appreciate them as well. The people who have cried with you, laughed with you, clapped for you, sat with you and stood by you at the times you needed it the most. They are precious and irreplacable. In a world full of disloyalty, backstabbing and mistrust let's count our blessings for the TRUE FRIENDS that we have.

Remember this is YOUR year of an UNCOMMON TESTIMONY. You are blessed and highly favoured.


N.B I just realise that today marks the 1st anniversary of this blog! I can't believe it, what a journey it has been. I have met so many people and made some true's a real blog family for me. Anyway I think this anniversary deserves a post of it's own! Anyways, to all who take the time to read, comment and pray for me, God bless you. I'm looking forward to the second anniversary!

@all:Thanks so much for all your comments and for your love. Your comments really encourage me and some days reading them gives me strength. I thank God for all of you and continue to pray that you reach the place that God has intended for you to be in Jesus name, that your light shall so shine before men and that God's favour keep taking you places in Jesus name. I love you all.
