I thank the Lord Almighty for giving me another year in my life. Today is a red color in my personal calendar, not only because it’s my 30th birthday but also it is my red or period day.Do you know what I mean? Red day means I’m not pregnant. Period. Did I think so? Yes, because I felt katulugon for several days last week.
The essence of birthday is not about gifts you receive on that day (gifts are just a bonus) but to realize why you are still alive. If you think about it deeply, there are many people died at early age ( only God knows the reason), in short life is so short. Today is my birthday so you have to greet me, hehe! Thank you for my friends and family who have extended their greetings via cellphone, YM and comments on my hapifamily blog. Good news is, I have a very long birthday (37 hours) Philippine time and US Time combo.
The essence of my existence in this world are the following : 1. to make my husband happy 2. To live and be a mother of my children 3. To be a child of my parents. 4. To be a sister. 5. To be an in-law. 6. To be your friend. 6. And above all, a believer.
I am so happy being 30. You’ll know when you are happy when you are contented of your life and what life has to offer. Acceptance is the key to happiness. The bottom line of what I’m talking about is that I’m happy because I have accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior (long time ago). I’m happy because He never left me. For 3 decades He was there to protect me : rain or shine. I owe everything to God. I stumbled twice (or more) against His will but still He was there for me..as He promised : once you’re my child, you’ll always be. Gosh! I’m a sinner as anyone else (like you) but my faith keeps me alive! I love you Lord . Thank you for the gift of life. Please forgive me for my everyday sins. In Jesus name, Amen.
My birthday verses ( from Holy Bible) : John14:6 “Jesus said: I am the way the truth and the life, no one comes to the Father but by me. “ . & John 3:16 For God so loved the world that He gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.
