“Just like seasons, people change.”

Once I was asked. Describe yourself in one single word. Confidently, I answered: Loyal. Now, I am not sure that I am what I was. I was, once, very loyal to my friends. I sacrificed most of my comfort just to be with friends. I don’t think I am that kind of person anymore. I guess, it is true what they say, people change. I don’t know when, but I know now that I am a different person. I am a completely a different person when I make up my mind that sometimes strangers are better than friends.

I guess 31 years did a lot of influence, didn’t they? Uh-hu. I am 31 now, today. Can you believe it? Me, HARDLY! 

This day has finally arrived. A day where I don’t expect birthday gifts, cake with candles and even wishes from friends. Yes, the day is today, where I am not praying for a silver watches, or a new iphone, or a future husband, or even a scholarship. Not that I already have all of the above, definitely not. And not because I don’t want them anymore, gosh no!

It’s because I am content with I am and what I have.

Yes, I am still praying for future husband. Yes, I am still trying to get a scholarship. And, yes, I still want to buy a silver watches. But they are just a husband, just a scholarship, just a watch. I have with me what is important in life, and that will do.

Indeed, people change. And I have changed. I guess I will keep on changing. And hopefully towards the likeness of my Lord.

31 years and still growing in faith to Lord Jesus. Somewhere between, there are times where the flames are really dead. But, now and then, He always leads me to His arm. 31 years and hopefully to the end of my life.

Happy Birthday, myself.

What a life we have! 🙂

Ummm… I guess there is still one thing that has not changed, my fondness of Aurora Borealis. I hope I can see it with my own eyes, before I leave this world.

  1. This was just beautiful! Happy Birthday to you! And yes, you’re right, we do keep changing… But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord. (2 Corinthians 3:18 NKJV) Many blessings to you, and my your special day be filled with joy as you continue to be transformed from glory to glory!

    In Christ’s Love,
    Cheryl
