28: last few hours

I really don’t have anything in mind to write about. It’s just that I want to write something before I turn 29 tomorrow. Just to put a closure to my series of 28 blogs, though, I haven’t really written much. Or should I say, I’ve really been busy being 28? ๐Ÿ˜€

I was excited when I turned 28 last year. I just wanted to embrace it. But truth is, it’s not really about age. It’s just a number. It’s just a marker, I believe. Like, when I was 28, I experienced parasailing. Or, it was when I was 28 that I joined this ministry. It’s just easier to remember when numbers are involved. ๐Ÿ˜€

So, what’s up with being 29? 29 people and older – you tell me. ๐Ÿ˜€

This is my last year being in the 20’s. I used to wonder when I was much younger if I would ever reach the age of 30. I don’t mind counting my age. It’s a milestone for me as a year is added to my life. It’s a blessing from the Lord. It’s actually a miracle to be able to get through another year and still intact with my faith. It’s all God’s doing. ๐Ÿ˜€

I don’t have definite plans for my birthday. As much as I wish my family is here, I’m still grateful for what God has set for me on my day.

As I desire to grow more in faith this 2013, hope that you pray for me as I take steps of faith each day to really know what God has willed for me this year.

All glory and praises and thanks to God for 29 years and more. ๐Ÿ˜€

Cheers! God bless you!

28: Be True to Your Self

 

 

One thing I’ve realized for the past couple of years, honesty to one’s self is just as important ย with being true to other people. I’ve learned this the hard way and well, still in that process.

Right now, I’m in that phase where I’m trying to accept certain truths in my life. Some, I don’t understand. Some, a bit painful. Some, gives me peace. Only God helps me accept all of these, knowing that even if some don’t make sense to me. ย They do to Him.

Accepting who you are, what you are designed for, with whom you are meant for – these are not easy truths. What you feel & think – facing them means hurting you sometimes.

But God always allow things for our best. This comforts me. Knowing He will sustain me, strengthen me, be with me all through out. I can face anything, as long as I’m with Jesus.

Truth about my self? Each day, I need my Savior to lift me up so that I can go on with my life.

To Jesus be the glory!

 

28: Celebrating 60

Last Friday, July 13, I went home to Bacolod to celebrate my father’s 60th birthday. I am blessed because I was able to come home and be with my family to celebrate this very special event. My dad didn’t want to have a big preparation. But, then we believe that he deserves a celebration. We were planning to go to Cebu and spend the whole weekend there. July 15 is his birthday. However, the weather wasn’t really nice for the past days, so we decided to just do it somewhere closer.

With family and friends, we had the major celebration at Mambukal Resort. The cake was a hit, not much of the taste but of how it looked. My father always wanted to have a swimming party than a formal, function room party (which what we wanted…hehe). So, swimming it was. With most of the food, grilled (which I really missed!).

That was the 14th. On his birthday, we had a lunch with family and some few friends at L’Sea. It was a private lunch, having a room of our own. The food wasn’t as much and as good compared to what we prepared the day before, but, it was just good to be served and not clean the dishes after. Haha!

I must say it was a great birthday weekend! My dad was very grateful and obviously, happy on his 60th. ๐Ÿ™‚

This is one of the highlights of my journey being 28. To be able to celebrate a signifcant year of my father.

28: love & wait



I’m 28. On Monday, I’m turning 28. Some may think, at that age, I should be getting married, or if not, at least be in a relationship and settle down before I get 30.


I’m 28. Even before I turned 25 or 26 or 27, I’ve been complete as a person. Since I learned to practice the word, “surrender”, I became complete. In Christ, I am complete.


I’m 28. I am single. Yes, I’ve never been in a romantic relationship. As they say, “No Boyfriend since Birth”. But, it doesn’t mean I don’t want to be in a relationship.


I’m 28. I’m a believer of waiting for God’s best. Yes, I failed at one point. I’ve had my own share of being heartbroken. Not all may know. But, it didn’t make me stop believing in love. It made me better.


I’m 28. As I continue looking up to the Author of love, I will never be tired of waiting. I will always enjoy romantic movies. No bitterness. Just waiting.


I’m 28. And if I’ll meet him when I’m still 28 or when I’m 29 or 30 or whenever, my first LOVE will always be my first. And I hope it will be the same for him too.


I’m 28. A woman captivated by the heart of God. Beautifully waiting.
