I sure am having a roll featuring all these super stars on my blog…
Today though, as an advocate of gender equality, I welcome my friend and brother Chuka Xavier obi for the second time to my blog.
This time though, he is sharing what he is grateful for…
I love how he talks a lot about his family. I knew they would make top priority in his post…
I also knew he MUST mention Hagin and Osbourne. You can’t have a convo with Chuka and not hear him mention and quote these two Generals…
Lemme let you enjoy his gratitude posts…
And oh, I stole the name#AttitudeO’Gratitude from his BBM status updates…
*HOTTIE Alert; Ladies please be careful as you read… #NuffSaid# 🙂
Did I wake up this morning with all my faculties intact?
Did I get up without any help and give myself my bath?
Despite any pain I might feel, whether imagined or “real”
In my body or heart, can I see, smell, hear and touch still?
Do I live life without needing any type of pill
To either function or have appetite to eat a meal?
The answer is a straight YES so that’s one thing
I’m grateful for: the healthy state of being necessary for living
I look around at the people that share same blood with me/
Starting with the man who first taught me my authority/
In Christ Jesus,
biko my dad is second to none/
Which other catholic would have taught his son to pray in tongues
From day one? Ably supported by godly wife
I grew up always hearing “Sozzo”, “Shekinah” and the likes
Mix that with catholic discipline and its not too hard seeing
Why even without money I’m grateful for my upbringing
He that doesn’t take care of his family well
Has denied the faith and is worse than an infidel
I grew up never having plenty of anything
Except people to share the little with- 5 siblings!/
Back then I used to think my dad should have had just 3/
Looking back I don’t think I’m ever more happy/
Than whenever all of us are together now remembering the past/
I’m grateful for a brother and 4 sisters…together we’re a blast!/
“Chuka you’re just too good o, in fact you’re a saint”/
“You’re the best person I know!” That’s the picture they paint/
But I and My Maker know that all that one na wash/
Pride goes before falls and bros I’ve fallen so much/
Sometimes it’s a heavy “Gbosa!”, sometimes slight “thuds”/
Other times I just drift day by day till I discover sey I don loss/
But no matter how it happened, once I call out His Name/
I’m grateful for the Grace to get up again/
To those who The Holy Spirit has used to give me lessons/
Many of whom I might never get to meet here on earth in person/
Teachers of the scripture, men who have handled the Word/
With love of God and His people pumping in their blood/
Of the four most influential in my life I’ve met just two/
The other two…when I get to heaven i’ll truly salute you/
I’m the first son of the first one, JIC Obi/
And through books he introduced
Kenneth Hagin & TL Osborn
Which in turn made it easy for me to listen to Pastor Chris/
It was just like watching my dad teach- nothing was amiss/
I bless these men through whom I feel God has blessed me the most/
But what I’m truly grateful for here’s my Oga at the Top…The Holy Ghost/
Have you guys noticed that the four guests I have had share here have talked about how they are grateful for family…
Aww. So sweet.
Maybe God is saying sum’in…
