One Blessed Friday

Another year has been added to my age. πŸ™‚ But more than the nuisance I ought to feel, I was more of happy to reach this age. I am 22 now and I am proud of being such. πŸ™‚

September 6 fell on Friday this year. My birthday, I can say, was an awesome one. I had filed my leave in the office, three days before and decided to spendΒ my day in our home.

I go to mass 6 in the morning, together with my sister’s husband (we both have the same birthdate). It was a very perfect preach to remember. My day’s reflection goes: “Love means preparing yourself to be hurt.” It was something I pondered on.

We got home and was greeted by our loved ones. My sister gave me a pancake with my name etched on it. πŸ™‚

I never expected to be greeted that way but I was really thankful. Moreover, my birthday will never be complete without my two special someone. They made my birthday enjoyable and happy. πŸ™‚ Thank you guys. πŸ™‚

And of course, this week will never be complete without my niece who has given me her beautiful birthday card filled with so much effort. I really appreciate her work and she deserves my praise. Thank you baby Haya. πŸ™‚

Well, I had a very meaningful birthday ever. I just hope that I will be granted my birthday wish soon (I will patiently wait for it). πŸ™‚ Thank you Lord for a wonderful birthday. πŸ™‚

This is my birthday prayer:

Heavenly Father, thank You for giving me another year to enjoy and appreciate the life You had given me. Lord, without You, I am nothing. Thank You for everything. I love You and with you, I feel secure and blessed. May you continue to shower me with strength, courage, knowledge and confidence so I can fulfill the mission you serve me. Show me your love as I seek my way towards your loving arms.

As I confidently find your light in my darkest moment, may you continue to grace me with goodness. Fill my heart with love so I can shower kindness to people in need. Guide me Lord, as I traverse the road of unknown. I believe I can do all these with your guidance and love.

Thank You Lord. I always believe and trust in You.

Amen.
