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!  :)

Lord Grant him many years.
You are right. I apologize for having sacked Constantinople. I really need to stop doing that.

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
