I know most of us can’t wait for 2016 to expire already so we can enter the New Year and find out what it has in store for us-hopefully bigger and better things. For some of us, 2016 treated us fairly well😄 and for some others, it didn’t deal easily with us 😥but in all things, we have to be thankful. For not everyone who began the year with us is alive to see this day with us; to count down the minutes and seconds to the end of one long and eventful year and welcome a brand new year.😇
We all have our expectations for 2017-good health, improved living and working conditions, positive friendships and relationships forged, new levels in personal development and/or business. It is normal to enter the New Year feeling all bubbly and optimistic of brighter days ahead☺. But like every journey and perfect plan made, there would be unexpected bumps in the road. We should prepare for them but shouldn’t let them take our focus from our dreams and goals. 😎
I love the sound at the mention of the year 2017. It rings of excitement☺ and energy🙆. I am hopeful that 2017 will be an uplifting year. Of all the lessons we learnt in 2016, we would apply them to make us prosperous in 2017. Of all the tears we shed as we sowed, we’d reap the harvest in joy. And for those of us who thought 2016 was their best year yet, let them be stunned with even more pleasant surprises in the coming year.
I hope to grow closer to God; intentionally make more time to spend in reading His Word and in prayer🙏. I hope to be a better writer; by pushing myself more and reading more to improve my craft📝. I hope to be a better daughter and sister to my parents and siblings by being more respectable and relatable👪. I hope to be a better friend to those who have stuck around and to even those who go on periodic breaks and reappear👥. In all, I hope to be a better person.💁
You’ve all been amazing this year; your visits to the blog as well as your engagements be they compliments, concerns or corrections are deeply appreciated. 😘I hope that we bond even more in 2017.

As the minutes tick away into 2017, I’ll be saying a prayer for you. I’d appreciate it if you did same for me. I pray your dreams see the light of day in this coming year. I pray that God not only change your circumstances but changes your heart as well so your heart will sync with His.💞
May love, joy, peace, favor, grace, mercy, prosperity, good health and all other divine blessings be your portion in Jesus’ name. May laughter never leave your lips and smiles never disappear from your face.
Happy New Year!!!
