Happy Birthday to Me

imageThank you for giving me another year of life. No celebration, no cake, no gifts, I am grateful though for the inner peace in spite of our current situation. Today I am reminded of so many things.

Life is very short.

Meeting You is getting nearer. Each day past is one less of the number You set for me.

Time is precious.

Material things are just but “things”, having You is having everything.

Each day is a gift and an opportunity to glorify and seek you.

I want You more than anything else in this world.

If you ever ask me to choose between riches and salvation of my entire family, I will choose the latter.

And here’s my birthday wish:

First, help me never to tell a lie. Second, give me neither poverty nor riches! Give me just enough to satisfy my needs. For if I grow rich, I may deny you and say, “Who is the Lord ?” And if I am too poor, I may steal and thus insult God’s holy name. (Proverbs 30:8, 9 NLT)

I wrote 38 things that I’m thankful for, yes I’m 38 years old.
