It gives me great pleasure and utmost excitement to write this letter to you as you clock 50. I am bubbling with so much joy that you made it to this golden age! Girlfriend truly your life is golden. I have watched you celebrated birthdays and it seem they would never come,Here we are at 50. Hip Hip Hurray.
I want to use this medium to tell you how proud I am of the woman you have become.You have weathered many storms but you have always come out of it all only by Grace girl! only by Grace. I remember when you clocked 10. Your dad,woke you up with that favourite tune that has your name on it-though He was took sick to enjoy the day with you,he gave you that priceless gift of a song. Mother made the day beautiful!
You went from that little girl into a strongwill, fiesty go getter,you have made mistakes in this journey but you never cease to acknowledge your maker. You have always been full of dreams, not all of them became reality but still keep on dreaming. You amaze me girl.
You’ve had your share of love and heartbreaks,I remember you once told me that you will never get married,because you grew up watching your parents fight and fight and fight. Some of your relationship sucked,at one time you cried over that guy whom you thought will take you to the altar…….finally. Little did you you know that your Heavenly Father had something better up his sleeves and he will never cast his pearls to pigs!
Looking back now 19years in marriage,without a doubt in your heart you know He gave you,Your own man. The first few years were rough and tough,and you almost wanted to pack it up at one time,somehow you scaled through,there are still those “bad hair days” your determination to be a worthy example to your children and your total devotion to God is still at work in your home.
God has blessed you with great children,your first pregnancy almost sent you to the world yonder,my my my,OBA you are one rare human being.Without a doubt God has a hand in your life.What! your eye don see for this world o.
Here we are today,at 50,I want you to know that I am your number one fan,your best friend,I love you ,I believe in you and I am so proud and grateful to be you. See the dreams of many years ago are unfolding right before your “korokoro” eyes. You are an amazing worldclass music icon,bestselling author,renowned speaker of international repute. A woman in God, a servant leader and many more.
The journey is still way ahead,and I know the ONE who has brought you this far,will keep you and take you farther farther. There are rivers to cross,mountains to climb,you will laugh,you will cry still! you will want to give up still ! Remember,that when those times come,YOUR ANCHOR HOLD STILL!
Keep your head up,Don’t let pride get the best of you! God resist the proud.
