It’s My Birthday!!!

This is like the weirdest birthday I have had. Unlike me, I have not even been obsessing over it — like tweeting incessantly. Nope. I feel weird actually. Like, I’m glad it’s my birthday, but apart from being grateful to God, I wonder how else I’m supposed to be feeling?

Happy birthday to me

Happy birthday to me

I don’t know about you, but I always reflect on my life on my birthday. I think about the things I have done, the things I want to do, the things I thought I would have done by now … and that’s pretty much what’s going on in my head right now.

I don’t know the words to use to describe to you the enormity of my dreams. My dreams are so huge that they’re scary, and as much as I want to live my dreams, I sometimes become afraid of living them. They’re so big.

I’m curious what God has for me this year though. Happy birthday to me.

      Sorry love! I don’t have a personal FB page anymore, that’s why. I only operate as a page now which is kind of annoying cause I can’t comment on people’s stuff either *sigh*

      Thank you so much. And happy, happy birthday to you, too!!! You have no idea how encouraging your words are to me. I get discouraged sometimes, but for the most part, I am expectant that He will do something great (beyond my wildest imagination) this year. I pray the very same for you, dear. May we both receive unusual blessings this year, in Jesus name. Amen.

    Happy belated birthday Vera. Sorry it’s coming late as I just saw this post. I pray that you’ll accomplish those big dreams and live a fulfilled life.

    It’s good to dream big. If your dreams aren’t bigger than you, you probably aren’t dreaming yet!

    May God continue to bless, guide, and guard you and yours.

    Btw, your blog is nice. You are doing an awesome job!

    Gift Ideas: a camera, sports equipment, puzzles (if your budget is low), an expensive perfume,
    a leather belt, sexy lingerie. T-shirts are a great gift idea and they
    can fall into both categories from the practical to
    the humorous. So what should you get for your man this Valentines Day that will really make his day and show him
    you care.
