Thankful Thursdays: HAPPY BIRTHDAY VIDEO to an amazing big Sis

Hey there beauties!


This Thankful Thursday though is one that is LONG overdue. About a month overdue. About a month ago was my big sister's 22nd Birthday.


Funbi (of DatFunkyFro) is one of the strongest people I know. Her love for God and her desire for Him blows me away. We grew up together and have always nearly been together. She knows me more than most people...thus the reason I call her my other half, sorta like a twinShe is a sister and a best friend. She is a blessing from God to me...a blessing that money can't buy. More precious than ANY jewel. I can talk to my girl about ANYTHING and I know she will lend a hearing ear. We argue of course but this daughter of Zion is always patient with me. She fills my day with loving text messages when she knows I'm having a hard time. She is a beauty inside and out.

Funbi has so many gifts: she sings, she writes, she sows and she is a young entrepreneur with her own hair and skin-care line. Oh and did I mention the fact that SHE IS THE BEST DANCER I KNOW (free-style and choreography)!! Her determination is something I admire very dearly. And her boldness and confidence is so encouraging.

Her fashion sense is an inspiration! Funbi always has the right word at the right time. And no exaggerations when I say she seriously makes my day. She has an amazing crazy sense of humour! We often sit in front of the TV to watch cartoons while laughing ourselves silly. Oh, I LOVE THIS SISTER.

I could go on and on and on, bragging about this beautiful Creation of God, who through her God has accomplished, learnt and taught so much in 22 years!

"Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity" 1 Timothy 4:12 

Again Sis, HAPPY 22nd BIRTHDAY. You have been an inspiration to me and I THANK GOD FOR PUTTING YOU IN MY LIFE. I rejoice for the many years to come!

Be sure to visit her blog: DatFunkyFro She always has an on point biblical encouraging word as well as sweet beauty tips, trust me ;)
Annoyingly enough, I can't seem to get the video to upload...*Sighs*. No worries. Guess big Sis will be the only one to see it then.

What were y'all thankful for this Thursday??? DO SHARE!!

God bless you all!

Have a wonderful weekend.

Much love, Funto
