It is so much easier to focus on what we lack than what we have. But a true heart of Thanksgiving will help us to count our blessings and be a blessing. In reality nothing is really owed to us. For our very breath is truly a gift from above! Everyday can be a new opportunity to Do Good. Remember that there are always new inventions that are just waiting to be discovered. Perhaps you can be the change agent that the world needs today!

         ~ GRATITUDE~

Gratitude is my new Attitude,
That is lifting me to a higher altitude.

Gratitude opens up my heart, 

For Praise and Thanksgiving.

Gratitude gives me a greater appreciation,

For the blessed life that I am living.

In this season

In this season of life we have to be willing to quickly change our mindset and shift our direction. We can no longer depend upon our old ways and pathways. For God is creating new highways and byways that will lead us safely into our divine destiny. However most of us would rather choose the familiar HIGHWAY over the forgotten BYWAY. For the byway according to Cambridge English Dictionary is “a small road that not many cars or people travel on.” But in this dispensation of time, I would rather be on God’s byway going SOMEWHERE than on man’s highway heading NOWHERE! Psalms 32:8 is a comfort and a reminder that God knows the best pathway that we should take and His GPS will lead us safely to our destination.Choose wisely! SELAH.


New portals are open,
From the Words God has spoken.

New rivers of blessings,

From the things we are confessing.

New manna from heaven,

Just like seventy times seven.

New highway’s and byway’s,

It’s time to go God’s way.

God Loved Us First.

It is the month of Valentines….. And love is in the air! But while some of us may have found love, others may have lost it in the battles of life…. But let us choose not to become offended with God for the things we have suffered. Rather, let us move beyond the rubble and look into the Eyes Of Perfect Love realizing that God first loved us! Here is the biblical example of true Love. “God is love. When we take up permanent residence in a life of love, we live in God and God lives in us. This way, love has the run of the house, becomes at home and mature in us, so that we’re free of worry on Judgment Day—our standing in the world is identical with Christ’s. There is no room in love for fear. Well-formed love banishes fear. Since fear is crippling, a fearful life—fear of death, fear of judgment—is one not yet fully formed in love. We, though, are going to love—love and be loved. First we were loved, now we love. He loved us first.” 1 John 4:17-19 MSG
Let us be thankful for the daily blessings that God bestows upon us. But let us remember that love is not about Stuff that is only temporary. For all of the material things that we accumulate, celebrate and hold so dear apart from Him are all just vanity. God is the giver and sustainer of our lives….. For unless He breathes His breath in us we have no life! He is the Light in the darkness. He is still the One who opens blind eyes, cause the lame to walk, cleansed the lepers, cause the deaf to hear, raised the dead and reveals the good news of the gospel.

May we all receive Him as our first Valentine. And let us count ourselves blessed that even in our pain, disappointments and brokenness…….the God of heaven has committed Himself to love us for all of eternity. Truly God is for us and never against us. SELAH! Happy Valentines

This poem is written just for you. So count up all of your Blessings today and have a Happy Mother’s Day!


        🌹MOTHER’S DAY🌹

Everyday is really Mother’s Day,

But as a women;

You hardly have any time to play.

There are daily duties and errands,

That you must run;

And there is never a time,

When you can ever say ‘DONE.’

But as a woman you are the greatest CEO,

For you are building the greatest dynasty;

And you are making a great mark on history!

You can warm up at any time by creating and designing you own little unique cafe. In that place you are free to cuddle up with a good book and the infusion of some essential oils from Young Living. This place can become your favorite getaway in the heart of winter. This is also a perfect atmosphere to pause and reflect on your many blessings and the beauty that daily surrounds you.
    ~The Best Time~

Tea time is a great time,
To find some time for me time.

Tea time is the best time,

To warm up during the cold time.

Tea time is the perfect time,

To pause and let your mind unwind.

Today, I am thankful and Counting It All Joy not just for my children, but for all of God’s children! I am ‘Declaring God’s abundant Blessings ‘ upon them and the future generations as they move forward into their destiny and high calling! Lord, I pray that you would Bless and Keep them from all evil. Give them Favor and Success. And let your Light continue to Shine daily upon their path. Amen!


Lord, I thank You,

That our children were not born for trouble;

For the blessings of the righteous –

You have promised that You would double.

Lord , I thank You,

That our children were not born for trouble,

For You are well able to keep them;

From the depth of life’s rubble.

Lord, I thank You,

That our children were not born for trouble;

And they will never have to suffer-

At the hands of the devil.

Day# 2: Of My 100 Days of Counting It All Joy.

I will count it all joy because He who is in me is greater than he that is in the world.


          ~I Will Never~

I will never cast away my confidence,

Because of what I see.

For Jesus is the Greater One;

Who lives inside of me!
I will never cast away my confidence,

For God is my One and only strong defence.

I will never fully trust in how I feel,

Or follow the things to which my mind appeals.
But I will stand firmly on God’s Holy Word,

On not on anything that I’ve seen or heard.

I will keep pressing towards the finish line,

For every blessings of my Heavenly Father;

I am destined to find!

Thanksgiving Day is more than just a house full of family, friends , good conversations and various delicacies on the table.
Thanksgiving Day is a special time for reflecting on God. It is a Time when our hearts should be overflowing with gratitude as we begin to recount the many bountiful blessings that He has so richly bestowed upon us. As you celebrate this Thanksgiving season, remember to make room at your table for God. For after all, He is the giver of life. He is the very breath that you daily breathe. He is the giver of every good and perfect gift. Above all, He is truly the ‘GREATEST GUEST’ that you will ever have! #IAmGivingThanksAndIAmMakingRoom!

           ~If You Have~
If you have breath in your lungs,

And a place to lie down,

That is more than enough;

For you to turn things around.
If you have food on the table,

And a few dollars in the bank;

That’s more than enough,

For you to give thanks!
If you have clothes on your back,

And God is your Rock;

That’s more than enough,

For you to stay on the right track.
 Joyce A. Boahene© 11/13/15






















I Choose Life.

We no longer have to wallow in the regret of the past or the pain of the present. For God has given everyone a choice that requires making a decision. This is a now decision and one that should not  

 be put off in the near future. For God Himself says, “Today I have given you the choice between life and death, between blessings and curses. Now I call on heaven and earth to witness the choice you make. Oh, that you would choose life, so that you and your descendants might live! (‭Deuteronomy‬ ‭30‬:‭19‬ NLT)
Choosing life and the blessing means choosing God’s way and His will. This choice will not only be beneficial for us but for the prosperity of the future generation. How sobering it is to know that the choice that we make today is so critical to tomorrow that God would require heaven and earth to be a witness! #IChooseLife!


Day #27:Today, you can be thankful for your many blessings.

Today, you can be especially thankful for your health, shelter, family, good friends, good food, and good conversations. As you gather around the Thanksgiving table be sure to give thanks openly for all of those special people in your life. Seek also for an opportunity to reach out to those who are helpless, homeless or feel hopeless. For you are blessed. And you have been called to be a blessing!

And now, will you kindly ask all of the ‘Real Turkeys’ in the house to please stand up and offer up a prayer of Thanksgiving!


Lord, I choose to honor Your name on the face of this earth,
And I thank You for my Savior and such a new birth.
Lord, I thank You for supplying my daily bread,
And the Blood upon Calvary’s Cross that You shed.
Lord, I thank You for paying every debt that I owed,
And the removal of every bad seed that I sowed.
Lord, I thank You for giving me a heart to forgive,
And for providing an example of how I should live.
Lord, I thank You that sin has no dominion over me,
For You have ransomed my soul and I am totally free.
Lord, I thank You for delivering my soul from the evil one,
And for wisdom to grow and to understand.
Lord, I thank You that Your will in my life on this earth will be done,
And that all glory and honor will be given to the Son.
