Season 4: Episode 7 "The One with my Birthday"

This week was a very interesting week, leading up to my birthday...I didn't really know what to expect.  I truly learned how to "forget" myself, and that was awesome!  I saw a video today, I think of a man talking about missions, and he was talking about how the church takes young adults at their most selfish stage, and asks them to be self-less.  It's an interesting concept that Christ himself taught in Matthew 10:39, "He that findeth his life shall lose it:  and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it."  Birthdays are a day where it is expected to be "your day" and I was so thankful for the opportunity to use "my day" and truly lose myself in the service of others.
