Thirty seven.

Oprah says: Lie about your weight but not your age. I love getting older. Because life's lessons are hard to learn but once learnt, it's health and nourishment to the bones.
Thanks for all the birthday wishes on the previous post.







I AM HAVING A FANTASTIC Birthday.

Last night at church while worshiping God I was making telling Him like a little child all the things I want. And the next moment we started to sing this song and I realized with my whole heart that's what I want for my birthday. Phil 3:8 Yes, furthermore, I count everything as loss compared to the possession of the priceless privilege (the overwhelming preciousness, the surpassing worth, and supreme advantage) of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord



So make that your heart's cry too and then you would have given me the ultimate birthday gift.
So much love and so much kisses...
Wilna

Ai jittetjie toggie Wilna, ek is altyd so effe agter hierso, want ek het nou net my boodskappie getik in jou vorige boodskap en toe ek refresh toe sien ek die nuwe ene! Dus het ek besluit om sommer daardie een weer te copy ingeval jy nie teruggaan om te lees nie... so hierso is dit:

Ek wens vir jou, Wilna, vandag uit die diepte van my hart uit 'n baie vreugdevolle, geseënde verjaarsdag. Mag al jou gebede beantwoord word, al jou drome waarword en al jou wense realiteit word in hierdie 37ste jaar van jou lewe, want jy is 'n Engel direk uit die Hemel, 'n opregte kind van onse Hemelse Vader en verdien dit en nog soveel meer, vandag en elke dag van die jaar wat volg!

As ek daar was het ek nou vir jou 'n lekker drukkie gegee net omdat jy van binne so 'n mooi mens is en dit maak jou sommer van buite asemrowend beeldskoon - en jy lyk dit op daai foto en so so sielsgelukkig want jy het Jesus in jou hart!

Ek is vreeslik bly om te hoor dat jy 'n fantastiese dag het en is ook glad nie verbaas nie want dit kan absoluut net nie anders vir jou wees nie!! Ek hoop Jaku en die meisies dra jou op die hande en dat God spesiaal net vir jou vandag die sonnetjie heeldag direk bo jou laat skyn het - soos 'n klein halo :)

Geniet die res van jou verjaarsdag!

Liefde-groete uit die verre, nat Kaap
Bella {drukkie} xx

Happy Birthday, Wilna
I won't be able to come see you today but would like to wish you a wonderful day. This is a new day to make new choices. I appreciate your blog. Some days I feel worn out and then I open your blog and it causes me to reflect and be thankful. Which in turn refreshes me. Thank you so much.

This is my favorite song in all the world right now........and in honor of your birthday I was just singing it thinking of how you loved to worship. God bless!
