My Birthday Song



... and my birthday prayer...

"Take me God.
I am all yours.
Do what you want with me.
To live and to labor
or to suffer and to die:
It is all the same to me.
Just so your will is done in me.
Make me an instrument
for the doing of your work.
Fit me into your plan,
no matter how hard you may have to hit
to hammer me into place. "


Many times I feel so insignificant whenever I think of the vastness of God's coverage, as far as my existence is concerned. Today, I refuse to feel that way. I want to look at it from a different angle. It's overwhelming how special I am to be taken care of a God who's got to take care of the whole universe. When the rest of the world cannot stop for my tears, or for my petty fears, He is there all loving and all knowing, taking care of me in spite of my inconsistencies. I love him, I love him not. I love him, I love him not. I love him.... but mostly not. Most not, because oftentimes my love for the Lord tends to be conditional. Right now it just humbles me to deserve his love still, in the face of those who love me.

Today I just bask in it, and forget about anything else.

Belated late than never as what they say...but here's what I can say..to just cherish every moment life offers, highest of highs and lowest of lows, at the end of the day you will realize how much it molded you as a person from way back to now. But then again, past is passed and we have to focus on the "NOW" not yesterday, not tomorrow but now. Halong permi gwaps...miss you tudo tudo!

well,as we grow older,we grow wiser or otherwise,only if we can just let ourselves take things as it goes...being just a "knowing" christian keeps us on our toes on what is more important in life,steers our path whenever we tend to get sidetracked or lost.That's a wonderful thing to have...it is truly God's loving response to our limited being.Its a cliche to say.."live your life to the fullest" but its your call,i've got mine.What is so wonderful is that having a friend like you is truly a cherished part of half of my existence....(daw kadalum na gd haw?)hehehe anyways,love you ann,i'll be forever you mother goose.:)

no probs, you know our friendships does not measure with how much time was spent but how we value ourselves to each other as persons...i value you because you did not judge me for what or who i am. If you ever did you humbled yourself to admit it to me and i appreciate that. thank you for the genuine honesty anne! you deserve the best things in life.
