Celebrating Grace


While everyone was still asleep at dawn today, as I got ready for my morning walk, this greeted me at the dining table. Even sons can be sweet.


Today is a perfect time for me to celebrate the grace I have received from the time God breathed life into me inside my mother's womb and up to this day when I am still strong enough to gorge on a smorgasbord breakfast courtesy of dear friends.

Ggie will pick me up in a few minutes and at Bellevue Hotel, we will meet other old-time friends.

Oh, I checked my email inbox and glimpsed a hundred thousand greetings from family and friends! I will read them one by one, ever so slowly, as soon as I get back.

What a happy, grace-filled day it's going to be!

“Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord.” 1 Peter 1:2

I dont know you and this is my first time to scanned your blog but I want to greet you a happy birthday. A birthday is just the first day of another 365-day journey around the sun. Enjoy the trip. Growing old is mandatory; growing up is optional alright?hehehe stay healthy
