a blessed weekend

It’s been a long time since I spent my birthday with my family. Since I moved to Manila, I’ve been celebrating my birthday with different people. As much as I want to spend it with my family, distance just doesn’t make it possible. But I’m still grateful that I was able to spend it with people whom I have considered family here in Canada.

Yesterday was our team building activity (with the GCP peeps) and it was a good treat for my birthday. 😀 We spent the whole day in Victoria which is a ferry ride from Vancouver and did some sight seeing. We went to Butchart Garden, Inner Harbor, Parliament Building, Craigdarroch Castle and Fisherman’s Warf. I’m just waiting for our pictures to be uploaded…hehe. I wanted to have a birthday cake but we were not able to get one. Instead, on our way home, we stopped by Krispy Kreme and bought 2 dozens of donuts. When we got home, before my birthday ended, the guys converted the donuts into a sort-of-cake and I got some birthday candles from the stock room.  A birthday song from the guys concluded the day. 😀

My 27th year has been one of the most life changing years in my life. And, I can never take any credit for what I have accomplished or given.  All the credit belongs to my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

Starting today, I’ll just keep looking UP. Just as the message from the worship service this morning was all about – Jesus was lifted UP on His resurrection. I pray that in my 28th year, I will have a deeper and more intimate relationship with God. That I will continue to walk with Him as I take this journey of re-discovering myself in the eyes of God.

And as you read this, I just want you to know that I praise and thank God that He has put you in my life.

All glory to Jesus Christ, my God and my King!
