Count your many blessings, name them one by one,
And it will surprise you what the Lord hath done.
March 10, 2013 to March 10, 2014. One year, millions of surprises. Places I never thought I could ever go, people I never thought I would ever be friends with, things I never thought I would ever do. To mention and count everything is simply too many. So here are some big events and things I am thankful for:
1. March 10, 2013. Sweet jello for sweet 22 birthday! 🙂
2. April 1, 2013: Bachelor of Science.
3. May 8, 2013: Hearing and reading the word Palopo for the very first time.
All excited after opening the letter but bursting into tears the next five days knowing that having to go so far away for three years. But life went on.
4. June 2013: Lampung trip
First time stepping my feet in Sumatra island!!
first time riding on an elephant!
5. June 2013: Proper goodbye for great people!
6. July 1, 2013: Ron’s birthday
the night when Ron, the birthday boy, kept us waiting for more than an hour for karaoke. He never showed up. Finally, ended up singing like crazy and taking silly pictures in our hotel room. At least he finally made it there.
7. July 6, 2013 – now: Welcome to Sulawesi!
First time stepping my feet in Sulawesi island!
New places. New people. New experiences. New things.
In a year, God has been blowing my mind with what He’s done and I believe that there will be many more surprises coming in the coming years. Wherever this life may go, have Your way, Lord. Wherever this long road may end, have Your way, Lord. Whatever this life may bring, have your way, Lord. Nothing more I wish for this birthday than to enjoy the ride as I’m going this life through.
Because at the end of everything, You must become greater, I must become less. Because I am just an unworthy servant who has simply done my duty.
