To My Dearest Friend


There is a time and season for everything;

A time to be conceived and a time to be born;

In between these two periods is yet another time to grow;

Every season no matter how slow has a purpose;

Mostly for laying the groundwork for the next stage in life;

A time to find that one person you want to spend the rest of your days with;

Not perfect but whose imperfections you can live with;

And with patience and diligence, work on making him/her a better person;

Someone to build a family with; someone to complete you;

It is one of the most exciting times in a person’s life;

Where you take the big leap with someone into the future unknown;

Ready to face the odds and conquer it all come what may;

And watch another generation come out of you and grow up to be

The next people others will call well-brought up and blessed.

This is a tribute to my dearest friend and sister Amanda who tied the knot last weekend;

I applaud you for the courage to take this bold step against all odds;

The jealous ones and the pessimists; through the storms and the heat;

I have watched you grow up to be this phenomenal lady that you are today;

And I know your  latter story is going to be far greater than the former;

The future is unknown to us all but this I do know;

Because you decided to ignore all voices and heed to the One who has brought this far;

And believed in His timing no matter what others might think;

You are going to flourish and blossom in rain time and even in drought;

And whatever you sow, you will reap in multiples.

And in even in hard times, you will increase from strength to strength;

And on your head will be grace upon grace;

May your story be a living testimony of God’s goodness;

May everyone who hears your story give God the glory;

And call you blessed and a blessing.

I love you, sweetheart;

Wish you all the best in this new territory;

The best is yet to come;

It has been a blessing knowing you.
