28 Reasons Why I am Grateful Today

This blog is on idle mode for the longest time since I started working overseas. Today, I decided to post something personal so I can look back on how God is moving in my life. 

But by the grace of God I am what I am, and his grace toward me was not in vain. On the contrary, I worked harder than any of them, though it was not I, but the grace of God that is with me. — 1 Co 15:10

Every year, during my birthday, I am creating a list of the things I am grateful for and send it to my email. Now, I’d like to publish it here to remind myself vividly of how faithful our Father is.

28 Things Why I am Grateful today
