Day 5 – Thankful For Houston

The City of Houston is very dear to my heart. For the first time in my life I can say that I have never felt at home more than when I am in Houston. I moved to Houston in 2005.

Houston is a great city and every nationality is here. It is indeed the melting pot and its people are the greatest asset. They are unique, gracious, generous, kind, courteous and southern hospitality at its best.

I love Houstonians and I feel right at home here. We are proud Houstonians and our children are proud Lil Texans.

What is there not to love about H-Town? The people are warm, friendly and upbeat. I am sure loneliness is not in their vocabulary. I can go to Wal-Mart and make friends just talking to a complete stranger.

Who doesn’t like a man in cowboy boots and a hat, YEA HAW! The best cuisines from around the world are at your fingertips. Their men are respectful and they can call me ma’am all day long. Their women are like sisters from another mother. I have been very blessed with finding favor with Houstonians and I couldn’t pray enough for God to continue to bless my City, Houston.

Of all the cities in the world God would have me found my husband, get married and have 3 Lil Texans, it had to be Houston! A lover of good food and appreciation for the hot weather of Houston.

Say what you like about Americans, they are the warmest people I have ever met. That is saying something from an African, as Africans are known for their warm hospitality and disposition.

Houston is the City of God, God loves Houstonians and we are truly blessed in all things Oil. We love our trucks, fishing and our right to bear arms.

There is no excuse for not attending a church, we are right on the Bible belt and there are a variety of churches all over Houston.

One of those great churches is our Houston Worship Centre. A church with a big heart for people.

All I have experienced in Houston is open arms and warm hearts. God bless the City of Houston. Yea haw!
