Happy New Year & Thank You!

May God make your year a happy one!
Not by shielding you from all sorrows and pain,
But by strengthening you to bear it, as it comes;
Not by making your path easy,
But by making you sturdy to travel any path;
Not by taking hardships from you,
But by taking fear from your heart;
Not by granting you unbroken sunshine,
But by keeping your face bright, even in the shadows;
Not by making your life always pleasant,
But by showing you when people and their causes need you most,
and by making you anxious to be there to help.
God’s love, peace, hope and joy be with you for the year ahead.


Thank you for your continued support. I appreciate you all taking the time to read my posts. Please keep me in your prayers for 2020.

God bless you always!

  1. Amen amen amen! Selam happy new year to you and your family as well. You have no idea how many young folks you are touching…I have girls and boys alike from our church who always tell me they read this and that story from your blog…they also ask me to read for them during our lessons..
    Please keep writing…Especially about purity of body and mind, encouragments and self worth…to abstain from sin…they love your story about how you got married…more of that will be good! If God allows it videos will be so much helpful as well..
    GOD be with you my sister.
