Upcoming birthday reflections
I´m looking forward to having my 26th birthday in a few days time! This would be my 3rd birthday in Germany. Ever since I moved to Germany, having a birthday has become a bitter-sweet thing for me. For one thing, I miss meeting up with my usual girlfriends and just have a girly-fun time together. I do struggle with "being forgotten" when I´m out of sight out of mind. This thing hits me the most on my birthday, when I start asking myself how many people actually do remember and drop me a note to say hi. But I know that God is working in me that my sole foundation and purpose rests on Him and Him alone. Friends and family are wonderful props for my life, but ultimately its in the absence of all these props that one is fully molded and shaped into God´s ultimate purposes. For everything I have in my life in Germany, I´m thankful to God and pray that I will always be.
