I wasn’t really sure that I would write this letter, as I did not want to force it; but as I look at pictures of you as you hit your golden jubilee, I am overwhelmed with emotion, as I celebrate you this day!
I remember when mum turned 50 all those many years ago. At the time, she seemed old; though now at 79 she seems so young, as I pray God’s mercy for a few more years for her.
I am thankful to God that mum is around to share this golden jubilee with you (a grace I hope Timi and I would enjoy!), and more so, I pray that you will be around to share the same with Adedamola and Olufunlade.
Much more than the sisterhood we share, I cherish our friendship which is sincere. You tell me off an awful lot, but it always done in love and sincerity of heart.
Did I introduce you to Jesus? I don’t recall! But I think I introduced you to Fountain (FOLC), and you have since taken over the church – you like to say, “my church”, and I always have to remind you that I once attended the church.
Is okay, I have found a new home at Hillsong, so you can keep Fountain.
I have said all that, really just to say that I am glad that you found faith, most of all, I am glad that you have kept the faith and continue to grow in Him.
I pray the words of Paul in Philippians 3:10 – 12 for you: That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death.
If by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead.
Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect: but I follow after, if that I may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus.
Today, I ask the world to join me, as I celebrate you.
May your end be greater than your beginning! May you accomplish purpose and fulfil destiny. May the good God of heaven sustain you with good health and length of days. May you be all that God has called you to be, and may you do all that He has called you to do.
I love you sis, for now and for always.
