Day 21 – TTC 2019

How did you spend your Christmas? Mine was spent at church, then later with family over a dinner table. Not particularly the way I had dreamt it would be, á la Hallmark movies. Where I would have been off work in the city and somewhere in my country home riding on a crisp white horse with my knight in shining armor (literally!) Having snowball fights (it doesn’t even snow in my country), listening to carolers (nope! Just church choirs), talking about fond childhood memories, and enjoying the magic of Christmas! I guess that’s only in my dreams (and Hallmark, of course!)

No matter how you spent your Christmas, I hope you got to reflect on the birth of Jesus Christ and the hope and joy this brought to the world. Whatever season you’re in right now, I want you to know you’re not in it alone, He’s right there with you. Today is the 22nd day of the 26-day Think-Thank Challenge! 5 days to go!!! (Also means 5days before the end of the year, can you believe it?! 🤗

Let’s get to it! Continue reading “Day 21 – TTC 2019”

Day 7 – TTC 2019

Guess how many days we have before the new year?

19!!! 😱

We’ve got 19 more letters to be thankful for! 💃🏽 Hope y’all are racking your brains for those things that you’re thankful for (big, small, insignificant…)

Here’s the interesting thing about thinking, your brain is able to go back to the memory bank and pull out files you didn’t even know existed. Like, remember that time you spent your last cash, but somehow still made it through? Remember that time a car almost hit you on the highway? Remember that time mom called to say she was ill, but later recovered? How about all the times you’ve entered random cars, and you weren’t robbed? Didn’t you get a new job, phone, spouse etc this year? How about those other things like the muscle-pull after gym that later straightened out? Or that boy/girl you like that finally gave you their numbers and asked to hang out?

The way I look at it, if you think about the bad, it multiplies, and you’ll be stifled from giving thanks. But if you think about the good, it also multiplies and you’ll find more reasons to give thanks! Let’s get to it! 😄

Day 6 – TTC 2019

Hi guys!!!

It’s day 6 of our annual Think-Thank Challenge!!!! Yasss!! 20 more alphabets to be through! If you’re just joining us, the TTC2019 is about giving thanks using all 26 letters of the English Alphabets. The idea is to get you to think of words that rhyme with each letter and to find things you’re thankful for in 2019.

It’s alright not to be so ‘hyped’ about the year. Perhaps, none of the things you had on your ‘resolutions’ list was done. Maybe you even feel like a failure, a phony, a weakling, or even a disappointment. These feelings are valid. But hey, they don’t define you. Being broken doesn’t change your original blueprint. You, my darling are loved and born for a purpose. Thanksgiving lights something in your heart and helps reset your mind. I hope you can see the greatness God and I see in you! It’s enough to give thanks! So let’s gear up! 😎 Continue reading “Day 6 – TTC 2019”

Hiya!!!

It’s another beautiful day and I’m thankful to be alive! Also, I’m thankful it’s the 4th day of our Think-Thank Challenge 2019!!!

Let’s get to it! Continue reading “Day 4 – TTC 2019”

Day 3 – TTC 2019

It’s day 3 of the Think-Thank Challenge 2019!!! I know sometimes it’s hard to think about things to be grateful for. But hey, what we see as normal is just the mercies of God. It’s not ‘normal’ to go out and come back without being harmed. It’s not ‘normal’ to have your food digested with ease. It’s not ‘normal’ to have all the basic things you have. So why not count your blessings and name them one by one? 😀

If you’re not yet following this challenge, please do!

We can always find something to be thankful for, no matter what may be the burden of our wants, or the special subject of our petitions. – Albert Barnes
