I could just stop with the title. 🙂
That’s basically what 22 years of my existence meant at all. IT WAS GOD all the way, His LOVE, His GRACE, His MERCY. Everything was about Him. and you know what’s great about that? Every year, God reveals Himself to me, AND I STAND IN AWE TO HAVE THAT OPPORTUNITY TO GET TO KNOW MY GOD MORE AND MORE EACH DAY. 😀
I had plans for my birthday, and I even wrote them in a paper to keep myself reminded (here’s what’s on my list of to-dos):
1. JOG at PHILAM PARK
2. HAVE a LOOOOONG PRAYER TIME AND DEVOTION AT THE PARK.
3. BAKE AND COOK FOR MY FAMILY.
4. CLEAN MY ROOM.
AND SO ON.:)
But God has other plans for that day. Our Pastor announced that there will be a Ladies’ Conference on my birthday and I immediately decided to attend, I told my mom to come with me too. AND NOW I KNOW, IT WAS GOD’S WILL. God wants me to learn something on the day that He graciously formed me in my mother’s womb and bore me into this world.
My mom and I met with the other ladies at our church and then we went to Gospel Light Baptist Church at Q.C. . The sweet moms at our church greeted me on the way and I’m just blessed to have several spiritual mothers at our church. I praise the Lord for them!
JUST TO SHORTEN THE STORY.
I had no clue that my special friend, Amos, planned out a surprise for me.. and I was so glad to learn later that Tita Jo (Amos’ mom) has done almost all the work together with Aaron, Amos’ brother.
HERE’s AMOS’ MASTER PLAN: :))
He asked his mom, Tita Jo to buy 22 roses for me. (’cause he knows i’m that kind of girl..:)) flowers and all that.. :P)
and then, he asked Aaron to bake a cake (c/o FAJ CAKE GALLERY) with the them of “Princess and the Frog”
Here’s the OUTPUT:
I CAN’T ASK FOR ANYTHING MORE!
I’m blessed to have known sisters from different churches…I AM JUST SO BLESSED!
I learned a lot from the speakers too! God taught me the value of PREPARATION:
Preparation to be an excellent wife to my husband. 😀
I learned about adorning myself NOT WITH today’s fashion but by the Word of God…I need to make God attractive through my life. 🙂
I learned that I am being followed by other ladies… and I need to be a good example to them.
It was a blessing that I was able to share what I’ve learned to my sunday school class of high school girls.
Many, O Lord my God, are thy wonderful works which thou hast done, and thy thoughts which are to us-ward: they cannot be reckoned up in order unto thee: IF I WOULD DECLARE AND SPEAK OF THEM, THEY ARE MORE THAN CAN BE NUMBERED.
TO GOD BE THE GLORY!
