I am a day older today. I remember this day; last year… it feels just like yesterday. I spent the day with this set of people (colleagues and Friends); they made my birthday very memorable for me. I remember how they came together and prayed for me, ate my cake and drinks, sang together and snapped some pictures together. That was 2016.
Since my birthday last year, a lot has happened. The road has not been smooth as I really would have loved it to be. Many times I have stumbled, and fallen but somehow I find strength to rise and keep moving; I find hope and an attitude of optimism; I stay as cheerful as possible. Sometimes I miss the point. I think I am trying but days like today reminds me of the “Truth” – It reveals to me more than before that it is all by God’s grace and mercy.
I am grateful Lord.
There will be eating of cakes and drinking of wines today whether the recession likes it or not. But beyond the marrying, I resolve to keep keeping on in life, for my sake and the purpose of God in my life.
Happy Birthday to me.
