My colleagues at church sang their hearts out and woke me up greeting me at my 22nd Birthday. This is a culture at our place to greet our colleagues celebrating their birthday early in the morning. This is called mañanita. It is a very heart warming way to greet a special someone happy birthday! For a person like me, who values friends very much, it is a very nice way to know that they also value you too.
Happy Birthday to myself! And thank you to all those who got up early and made my day very happy! To Butch, Riza, Harold, Paul, Lablab, King2x, Ken, Stanlee, Vinjo, Kevin Carl, Carl, Macky, Mcdo, and Julie. To all who greeted me through SMS and personal greetings, I thank you! To my family who were always there all the way. Thank you for everything. And to God, thank you for letting me know these people. Thank YOU!!
Am i happy now? Do these things make me happy? Is passing all my subjects satisfying? Is having an inspiration inspiring? Is having a lot of money great? Is having many friends make you feel popular?
Let us stop and think a bit of what we have right now. Is there something missing in my life right now? Hmmm...I guess with all these problems, projects here and there, playing hide and seek with our professors, there is something I forgot. I forgot to pray. I forgot to ask for His guidance in all this hardships. I forgot to give Him thanks for all He has done for me.
Thank you Lord for giving me all these blessings and challenges. I ask for forgiveness Lord for forgetting to pray and give thanks to You. Guide me Lord and use me. Make me a vessel of Your love and kindness. Use me Oh Lord! Give me strength to continue living this life. Guard me from all evil and danger that surrounds me. I love you Lord!
Let us not forget to thank Him for everything He has done for us. Let us take time to talk to Him and to praise and give Him thanks. God bless to all of us!
