ONE SWEET DAY


Hmm, Memories are important and one of the few ones I'm glad for is that of my  dad.....

“Memory is the diary we all carry about with us.”  Oscar Wilde


Was going through our old pictures together....
We took this when I was really little (I was a cute baby right? LOL) 



And then my first birthday :))

and then, 16 years later, on one sweet day, in the presence of loved one and school, Dad and I took this amazing picture at my Matriculation....Our last picture together on one sweet day in March...{Wish I could post it, but, left it in my family home in Owerri :( }

Yup, I've moved past the loss (God has totally filled that space. Happy now)....But, it’s made me appreciate the importance of creating memories and leaving legacies....

Take a picture today. Keep a happy thought. However you choose to remember that special moment or person, always have them in your heart...

For now, I’m glad I have memories of my dad and that of the numerous special people in my life, in pictures and in my minds eyes....

Another anniversary and I'm still blessed that you were in my life. 
Forever in my heart. Love you dad. Mwahhhh....
I love this song by Mercy Me....Reminds me of how healed I am :)


HURT AND HEALER

Why?
The question that is never far away
The healing doesn't come from being explained
Jesus please don't let this go in vain
You're all I have
All that remains

So here I am
What's left of me
Where glory meets my suffering

I'm alive
Even though a part of me has died
You take my heart and breathe it back to life
I fall into Your arms open wide
When the hurt and the healer collide

Breathe
Sometimes I feel it's all that I can do
Pain so deep that I can hardly move
Just keep my eyes completely fixed on You
Lord take hold and pull me through

So here I am
What's left of me
Where glory meets my suffering

I'm alive
Even though a part of me has died
You take my heart and breathe it back to life
I fall into your arms open wide
When the hurt and the healer collide

It's the moment when humanity
Is overcome by majesty
When grace is ushered in for good
And all our scars are understood
When mercy takes it's rightful place
And all these questions fade away
When out of the weakness we must bow
And hear You say "It's over now"

I'm alive
Even though a part of me has died
You take this heart and breathe it back to life
I fall into your arms open wide
When The hurt and the healer collide

[x2:]
Jesus come and break my fear
Wake my heart and take my tears
Find Your glory even here
When the hurt and the healer collide

Jesus come and break my fear
Wake my heart and take my tears
And find Your glory even here

How was your day? Do you have memories of that 'one sweet day'  you never want to forget or 'a sweet day' you are looking forward to.....Please share :))

Thank you so much for being part of my sweet memories too, ...Hugs :)
