On Turning Twenty Five…

We’ve all been through battles, ups and downs, and have made it this far. Hence, no point, really, recounting struggles and trials- we’ve all had them: some more, some less; some bad, some worse.. and can agree on one thing: Life’s not easy but it sure is worth a living!

Today, I am grateful for having come thus far. I might not be completely and totally satisfied with my life- nor doubt I ever will be- but I am loving the journey. I am loving the shaping and moulding; teaching and learning. I am appreciating the trials and tests, knowing I am not alone. Apart from the Lord who is on my side, I have a loving family, caring friends, and ever-present haters (lol.. just had to put that in, sorry) that remind me of one thing: life is an indispensable gift!

So, today: On turning twenty-five.. A toast to LIFE!

    Grateful for awesome siblings. Couldn’t ask for better..
    This year’s been amazing- truly significant in many ways..

    On your 25th i wish you all this and more:

    You will be blessed in the city and blessed in the country.

    The fruit of your womb will be blessed, and the crops of your land and the young of your livestock—the calves of your herds and the lambs of your flocks.

    Your basket and your kneading trough will be blessed.

    You will be blessed when you come in and blessed when you go out.

    The LORD will grant that the enemies who rise up against you will be defeated before you. They will come at you from one direction but flee from you in seven.

    The LORD will send a blessing on your barns and on everything you put your hand to. The LORD your God will bless you in the land he is giving you.

    The LORD will establish you as his holy people, as he promised you on oath, if you keep the commands of the LORD your God and walk in obedience to him. 10 Then all the peoples on earth will see that you are called by the name of the LORD, and they will fear you. The LORD will grant you abundant prosperity—in the fruit of your womb, the young of your livestock and the crops of your ground—in the land he swore to your ancestors to give you.

    The LORD will open the heavens, the storehouse of his bounty, to send rain on your land in season and to bless all the work of your hands. You will lend to many nations but will borrow from none. The LORD will make you the head, not the tail. If you pay attention to the commands of the LORD your God that I give you this day and carefully follow them, you will always be at the top, never at the bottom. Do not turn aside from any of the commands I give you today, to the right or to the left, following other gods and serving them.

    ❤ u loads,

    Hey Vicky,

    hoffe ich bin nach chin. Zeit nicht zu spät dran.

    Ich wünsche dir einen schönen und -ganz wichtig- gesegneten fünfundzwanzigsten Geburtstag. Viel Erfolg, Gesundheit und ja im Zuge des alterns auch immer mehr Weisheit bei allem was du tust und lässt!
    Bleib weiterhin ein heiterer und angenehmer Mensch. Denn so schätzen wir dich :-))

    Und jetzt noch die obligatorische nigerianische Gebets- und Segenlawine:

    May the lord bless you with wisdom, success, happiness, strength, health, love, mr. right, marriage, beautiful babies, nice house(s), nice car(s) and even more! May he continue to guide, protect and support you in whatever you may do or lay your hands on! In the next 25 years.

    Herzliche Grüße in das Reich der Mitte.
