Joshua 1:6-9

New International Version (NIV)
6 Be strong and courageous, because you will lead these people to inherit the land I swore to their ancestors to give them.
 7 “Be strong and very courageous. Be careful to obey all the law my servant Moses gave you; do not turn from it to the right or to the left, that you may be successful wherever you go. 8 Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful. 9 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.”

...Ang unique lang ng title no? Walang katulad. Haha

Actually, the day before my birthday, I got a little depressed, which I never expected to happen. Kung may such term as birthday jitters, yun na yun. Life indeed is a roller coaster ride. Kanina lang, things were so clear, my road were so bright tapos biglang dumilim. Di ko alam san pupunta. I thought, bukas, birthday ko na. Hindi ko alam pano icecelebrate kasi may mga bagay pang dapat unahin. I was keeping my phone off and my facebook deactivated kasi I don't wanna be bothered.

Then suddenly I thought, why should I worry? If I trust God then why should I? So I decided to talk to Him alone. I owe Him an apology. At that moment, I told him to take my life and the rest of my years. I asked Him to take the wheel and drive. I cried asking for His presence and I was comforted.

On my birthday, God showed me how He loves me so much. I had my doubts, hindi sa Kanya kundi sa sarili ko. Baka meron pakong ginagawang mali. Something that doesn't please Him. But then when my BCIF family surprised me that morning, i felt so loved.

Morning Birthday Harana.

Talagang I was surprised kasi I was told that the rest forgot about my birthday. Tsaka knowing na malayo pa yung sa kanila, I never expected it. Yun pala they were already preparing something for me that time. They woke me up with their harana.Touched ako sa song na ni ready nila for me.. Di ko mahanap yung lyrics ng song but it was nice. Napaiyak nila ako. Each of them even gave me their wishes and greetings after their songs. Nakakaoverwhelm talaga.

Of course, God didn't forget my little selfish desire. He loves me that much that He let it happen. Though we're not supposed to text each other, napangiti ako when this special someone sent me his greeting through text message. Dalawang beses pa.Well, kasi naman God has searched my heart and He knows He will be my one and only. =) 

Chuy. Me. Achi.

Super thankful din ako with my special friends na nag-effort na tumawag to greet me at pasayahin ang boring kong birthday. Yun nga lang eh ako pa ang pinakanta imbes na siya kumanta for me. But then, she made my day. Maybe she does or maybe she doesnt know about it, but she is special. Thanks Chuy.
And to Achi, know what? For those who knew our connection, iisipin baliw tayo dalawa. Haha. Awkward man, but thank you so much for being so kind. You are so sweet. Thanks so much for not giving up on me. For not listening to those negative things about me. Thanks for the gifts and sa call and sa greetings. =)))

My Li'l  Birthday Celebration.
That night was my best birthday ever. Friends came over to celebrate it with me. Angel got me a cake and that night kahit lima lang kami, it was soooo fun!!! They made my birthday so memorable. They gave me their wishes too. I was staying at my friends kasi that time so Papa told me to come home too cause they are also celebrating my birthday. Konteng handaan lang din, gusto ko man pero anlakas lang din talaga ng ulan non. But still, I am so thankful that God provided. Eh di ako na ang may dalawang simultaneous celebration. =)

My day ended well, no.. better...way way better. Actually, it was the BEST. It's His way of saying I've done favor in His eyes. 


Thank you Papa Jesus!!!! 

Happy 24th Birthday to me. =)))

LOVE. Love. love.
