This year I celebrated my birthday differently. I usually get on my knees at 00.00 to whisper a simple prayer of thankfulness for years that passed and hope for years to come.

This year, or last night, it was different. I was standing in line to enter a club, called Budha Bar, when the clock hit 00.00 CET.

Was I becoming less religious?

I hope the change of routine does not define my faith to God nor it makes me less religious. To all fairness, I did whisper a short prayer, with a very happy smile of “Thank you God” when I was standing there. It was as if He was standing next to me, along with my friends who hugged and kissed me and wished me happy birthday. Thank you for making me feel loved on this birthday.

Dear Laura Valentina Sitorus,

Happy birthday from Our Daily Bread Ministries! We join you today in your celebration. May the Lord make all grace abound to you, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work.

One great way to celebrate our birthday is to reflect on the generous blessings of the Lord over the years. As such, we have especially selected an Our Daily Bread reading which we hope will encourage you to live a life that overflows with thanksgiving.
