My brother's birthday today..
« on: April 15, 2009, 06:45:44 AM »
Please pray for my dearest Brother, Wilfred, who celebrates his birthday today! I can say I'm very blessed to have a brother like him, even though I hated him so much when I was child, now that I've become a teen, and can barely imagine what life is without him!  :laugh: He is mean and cruel to me sometimes, but I understand that that is how elder siblings usually show their affection, its painful though!

He just got a job recently, serving in a call center, and we are so glad that God has blessed his efforts to find employment which is quite scarce here in our place! May God grant him Many Years! Many Happy Years!  :)

Many happy years in the Lord's care and protection!
"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6

Lord Grant him many years.

If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.

He just has to make sure you never forget who the elder brother is. :P  Yeah, I still harass my younger brother from time to time, and he's 36, but I do so only because I love him.  If I didn't love him, I'd just ignore him.

Many years to Wilfred! ;D
