Thank You for wishing me A Happy Birthday!


Who is He of whom such gracious words are spoken? He is THE GOOD SHEPHERD. Why doth He carry the lambs in His bosom? Because He hath a tender heart, and any weakness at once melts His heart. The sighs, the ignorance, the feebleness of the little ones of His flock draw forth His compassion. It is His office, as a faithful High Priest, to consider the weak. Besides, He purchased them with blood, they are His property: He must and will care for that which cost Him so dear. Then He is responsible for each lamb, bound by covenant engagements not to lose one. Moreover, they are all a part of His glory and reward. 

But how may we understand the expression, "He will carry them"? Sometimes He carries them by not permitting them to endure much trial. Providence deals tenderly with them. Often they are "carried" by being filled with an unusual degree of love, so that they bear up and stand fast. Though their knowledge may not be deep, they have great sweetness in what they do know. Frequently He "carries" them by giving them a very simple faith, which takes the promise just as it stands, and believingly runs with every trouble straight to Jesus. The simplicity of their faith gives them an unusual degree of confidence, which carries them above the world. 

"He carries the lambs in His bosom." Here is boundless affection. Would He put them in His bosom if He did not love them much? Here is tender nearness: so near are they, that they could not possibly be nearer. Here is hallowed familiarity: there are precious love-passages between Christ and His weak ones. Here is perfect safety: in His bosom who can hurt them? They must hurt the Shepherd first. Here is perfect rest and sweetest comfort. Surely we are not sufficiently sensible of the infinite tenderness of Jesus! 

God has been Faithful to me all theses years, those words above are not enough to express my gratitude to God for what he has been to me, how he has cared for me even in my own unfaithfulness he has been a faithful God. Thank you lord, for adding another wonderful year to the years I have lived on planet earth.

I want to thank Mr/Mrs Ovwonuri, for never having the thought of not making me not to see the sun from the womb of my mom right from the day my mom got pregnant, they deemed it necessary to bring me into this world and today they are proud of having me as the second son of the house, all thanks to my siblings for how they have celebrated me today, I felt I was on top of world lol.

I want to use this opportunity to say a big thank you to everyone who has called, texted, wrote on Facebook, twitter, and even Whatsapp, am very grateful. I really don't know how to say thank you but I know just as you have celebrated me, you will have a cause to be celebrated.

Once again, Happy Birthday to Me!
