By accident on the same day I had been scheduled as a service leader  (liturgos) at Kapuk Muara post , west Jakarta, but nobody knew is my birthday, expect Mrs Iis Afendy who chatted with me a day before, when she checked out my profile
Three of the list coming from abroad, my wife's niese, Mrs.Vhi Simanjuntak lived and work in Dubai and Evron Situmeang, my relatives, lived at Lomalinda city, South California and Fajar Hariwati Santoso, wife of an Italian,  lived in Italy, I guess, since her wishes noted in Italy's laguage and I answered with Italy as well, after Google few minutes - sorrry if I made any mistake..
  Evron Situmeang family (43)









Most of the friends, 15 friends, coming from my community in my church, Gereja Kristen Indonesia, central Jakarta remind me where I belong, the place I had been a members for 33 years, since 1987, including 7 years as an elder. a volunteer dedication time and talents.I knew all of them and they knew me well as well. I had a special memory every year, that my anniversary celebrated at the same time with my church, at this time is a 81th.
Nine of the list are belong to Situmeang family name that only 2 are my close relatives. The rest, 7 didn't met anywere before, but they send me a warm regards. Some of them asking my profile to know what their exact say to called me, is a brother, father, grandfather, son or grandson,  In Situmeang family, everybody know what exact number they are in the family tree. This tradition are very complicated since hundred years.

Interesting comments coming from a friend in Jakarta Church organization, Mr.Nugroho Imam Panuju where I was an Auditor for 4 years, said :"Keep your young soul and never stop serve Him"he said. His images  mean that for 4 years in a row he saw me always keep young in spirit in church service, in my senior age.

Sigit Darmawan (38)
Almost the same image coming from Sigit Darmawan, a younger generation who assigned as Study & Development Team in drafting master plan for our church, he said :"Wishing you are the light house in your enviroment" and he copy along a quote from Franz Kafka :" Youth is happy because it has the ability to see beauty. Anyone to keep the ability to see the beauty never grows old"









                                             Nana (17), Rian (2)
Among the friends, I had at least 2 who love write the poems regularly almost everyday in Face Book and we exchanged funny comments, support, console, advice each other. We made a collaboration in drafting a poem and also I wrote a short story about each one of them, even never met physically. We had made a close relationship in the net, once by a sad poem who had made a crying a lot and the silly picture just to comfort or make friend laugh out louder, LOL every saw the pic.

Salomo. Toby, Peggy, Ramos,Antonia
Fryday night my younger son, Pahala Situmeang call ed said :" Papi what time do you at home tomorrow", he said that he will come to our house with Shinta, wife and 2 sons. My eldest daughter Vera Situmeang and her husband Moeseley Simatupang come without notice along with 2 sons. All gather at home along with my second daughter, Peggy Situmeang and her beloved daughter Antonia, who lived with me.

They intend to take me to a restaurant in the evening. But I can't go because I had a meeting and choir rehearshal for Indonesia anniversry celebration at August 17 at 17.00.

Before I leaved the house, Vera and Pahala hand me an envelope. Thanks Inang, Amang. My son, Monang  Situmeang and his wife Sarah who lived at California send a warm wishes in FB as well.

This year, I had a special, sweet  memory, where I got so many warm wishes and prayers and true love from my own family. May God bless every one of you to the years to come.
