I have a birthday request.....

Thus says the LORD, your Redeemer, and the one who formed you from the womb, "I, the LORD, am the maker of all things, Stretching out the heavens by Myself And spreading out the earth all alone..."Isaiah 44:24
I am on a birthday retreat on top of a mountain somewhere in China. I'm praising God for this life He has given me and for His 40 years of faithfulness, well, 40 years and 9 months, counting from the day I was conceived.
I'm having mixed emotions right now... The family is in spread in 3 countries. Either the world has gone smaller for us, or the kids (and parents) have gone older to be away from us.

But I'm trying to concentrate on my goal why I'm here....

I cannot blog more while I'm here because I can only use the computer in a small cafe.Will surely post more pictures when I'm back to the city.

I have a birthday request....please pray for Thailand. My girls are left  with my siblings and their families in the capital city which is chaotic right now.

Thank you for your prayers.
