I was so kilig that my brother asked me out to a Sunday lunch.
When I got to Chef Jessie at the Rockwell Club, I saw my husband and the rest of my in-laws waiting for me. Apparently my husband planned it to be an advance birthday celebration.
I was so touched! It was really very sweet of my husband to surprise me. Na tats ang lola mo,
33! Wow! It's such a milestone to reach this age. Do you know that Jesus saved the world from sin when he was 33 years old?
(My Birthday Invitation)
Aptly, this year is my Jesus' Year! I am so thankful to be alive with no serious health issues. Most importantly, I am thankful that people I love are well and healthy.
There are many things I don't have now. I don't have a successful career. I don't have a baby yet. But the things I do have...BOY! They outweigh the things I don't have.
Every night, I pray the rosary and read the bible with my husband. Every night, I learn how much God loves me. Yesterday, I came across this verse in Jeremiah...
"Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart."
I cried when I read this and I cry as I write it again here now.
You know... it is when I am at my weakest that I realize how much God loves me. My life is always never complete because God wants me to save a spot for Him.
Sometimes, when we have everything, we tend to forget God.
Anyway, I am so thankful to have started this journal and share my life with you good people. I hope that soon we will get to have afternoon tea together. In the mean time, thank you for reading!
