Oh Happy Day!


I would like to thank my friend from I Whisper to God for giving me this award. It is such a wonderful feeling that a blessing would greet you when you wake up.

This is not the only blessing that I had received today and I believe that this day will be full of graces from my Father.

Tuesdays really excites me because it is the day when the Prayer Group of our church will meet. I am really amazed by how God had changed my life.

Honestly, praying meetings, Bible sharing or attending mass was boring for me. I wanted to be closer to God but I just don't know why praying was very tiring, felt awkward and it was really hard to do. Even attending an hour of the Holy Eucharist felt like it can drain my energy.

But God is really great, amazing and good. He heard my prayer when I asked Him to help me be closer to Him. He changed me and now I want more and more of Him everyday. My heart is always in praying mode. I pray not because it is a routine or an act that my parents had taught me. I pray because I want to talk to God and thank Him for Jesus.

Thank you Father for everything. Thank you for my friend who had given me this award. I wouldn't have received this award if You hadn't changed me yesterday.

Now...I would also like to award this to some of my friends. I love your blog and I love reading your entries. Thank you for the things that you had shared that helped me reflect.

Congratulations on your award, Paige. You are a nice girl sincere in your worship and I believe the good Lord has a very special eye to you. It is not easy for a young girl to stay faithful and God fearing in our days but you will survive. :-)
