Just because I don't greet people "Happy birthday" (along with "Merry Christmas," "Happy New Year," "Happy Valentine's," "Happy Mother's Day," "Happy Father's Day," "Happy Anniversary," etc.) doesn't mean I don't care. I don't even celebrate mine. :) Why? It began the time I realized the practice (along with the others I mentioned) came from pagan roots, not from the example of the Lord Jesus. Only two instances in the Bible refer to birthday celebration and both pertain to death, not birth. God's Word says,

But now, after that ye have known God, or rather are known of God, how turn ye again to the weak and beggarly elements, whereunto ye desire again to be in bondage? Ye observe days, and months, and times, and years. I am afraid of you, lest I have bestowed upon you labour in vain. (Galatians 4:9-11)

Whenever I hear people say, "God told me," I wonder if they mean hearing from God audibly. Unless we live in the time of Moses, that's possible; otherwise, saying "God told me" at this time and age is nothing but dangerous. God's Word is the Holy Bible, which clearly says, “Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar” (Proverbs 30:6).

As a nondenominational, Bible-believing Christian who's refrained from attending (institutional) churches, I can say God has never left me stagnant in every aspect of life--be it spiritual or financial matters (yes, I've not been tithing as well since I left small and mega churches). God's grace is indeed sufficient . . . and more than enough.

Have a blessed week. ;-)

I've not been attending church since 2009 and so I can truly relate to what Bas in this video talks about. The God of the Bible is real, but He "dwelleth not in temples made with hands" (Acts 17:24).

Part 1 of the video is in this link <https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FHpuWcRK7vg>.

I was close to death while in the hospital last year, when I came across the story of Mr (Marine Lt. Col. Ferdinand) Marcelino on front page. Glad to know his heart of vengeance turned into forgiveness. Gratefulness is also essential in the process of forgiving people. Besides, who are we not to forgive others? In everything, something is worth thanking God for. Thank you Lord for dear life . . .

“In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.” (1 Thessalonians 5:18)

I've learned just this week that two remarkable men passed away the same month this year: language authority–copyeditor–author Bill Walsh, 55, on March 15 and Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist–author–professor Alex Tizon, 57, on March 23--few days apart, from the same industry.

Life is short, yes. But what matters is that one's life has touched many . . . or another. Sharing here the link to the posthumous story authored by Mr Tizon.

You've probably attempted to check your SSS contribution online (usually after you've paid via GCash) by logging in to your SSS account and clicking the "Inquiry" tab. Unfortunately, an "HTTP 403 Forbidden Access" flashes right before your eyes for like a thousand times. The same thing happened to me and so I googled endlessly to search for the solution that, apparently, I've tried just now. I thought it was just a chance of a lifetime. So I tried it again and it worked! (Difficult access on the SSS Inquiry page seems typical--might be another access issue the next time.) Having the same problem? Try typing https://www.http://sss.gov.ph on the search bar, instead of just http://sss.gov.ph using Internet Explorer. I hope this step works for you too. Good day!

God's Word says,

"But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery." (Matthew 5:32)
