31 Days Thanksgiving & Praise - DAY 13

Friends come and friends go,
but a true friend sticks by you like family.
Proverbs 18:24

Thank you Father for the beautiful, wonderful and precious gift of another day. I thank you my wonderful king for another day to experience love, life and wonderful friendship.

Yesterday, I spent the day with my god daughter and her mum. We had the most beautiful day of Carol services, presents and attended a baby christening. Her mum, my bestest (is that a word?) friend in the whole world, reminds me of the true nature and essence of friendship.


I am thankful for she has been a friend that has stuck closer than a sister. I am thankful for her life. I am thankful that even when I went through my darkest days and I wasn't much of a friend, she never gave up on me.

I am thankful for her patience, her quiet strength, her unquestioning loyalty and her pure and selfless love. She truly lives out and shows me the reality of 1 Corinthians 13:4, which reads "Love endures long and is patient and kind; love never is envious nor boils over with jealousy, is not boastful or vainglorious, does not display itself haughtily."

I am thankful Father for her presence and her friendship in my life. I am thankful for my goddaughter, she is a gem, a wonderful a joy, albeit a cheeky one.

I am thankful that you have preserve our friendship through all the trials and tribulations that we have gone through. I pray dear Lord, that we remain friends always and forever.

I am thankful that I am able to experience sisterly love, through compassion and a tender heart as you encourage us to do in 1Peter 3:8. "Finally, all of you, have unity of mind, sympathy, brotherly love, a tender heart, and a humble mind".

So Papa, I say a BIG THANK YOU for my friend and my god daughter. I am thankful for the experience of love and friendship that I have found through her. Lord, I pray that you preserve her and family and help me to be even half a patient and loving friend that she is and a good god mother to the little one. (Love you guys).

In the name of Jesus I praise, thanks and Pray. Amen.


Much Love, Remi
