Today I’m officially one year older. So far, it is a nice day; I had lunch with the family, amidst a nice day at the office. And in a few minutes, I am supposed to be off for school.
This has been an amazing year. The Lord has blessed me beyond all comprehension, and I am really thankful for that. It was a difficult year, though; this was the year I lost both my father and father-in-law, together with many other dear relatives. All in all, God showed me the profound truth of Ecclesiastes:
Go, eat your bread with joy, and drink your wine with a merry heart, for God has already approved what you do. Let your garments be always white. Let not oil be lacking on your head. Enjoy life with the wife whom you love, all the days of your vain life that he has given you under the sun, because that is your portion in life and in your toil at which you toil under the sun. (Ecclesiastes 9:7-9)
Thank you, Lord, again, for all your mercies and protections on this year. Grant us, through our Lord Jesus Christ, that we might continue with hope, joy, and love.
P.D.: I am running Slackware 13.0 now. It’s simply amazing. Try it!
