Blessed 51st BIRTHDAY !

Every life is a GIFT, a beautiful gift, so is the 5th!

Our dear JOYDA, let life unfold for you as you…

JOYfully and

Outrageously continue to

Yield to a 5-


Amazing world of AWEsome Enlightenment

Joyda, such a JOY to have, the 5th in the family and the Firstborn in Mindanao, (particularly in Davao del Sur) after us, her 4 older Leyte-born siblings.

Her wonderful peculiarity was noticeable. Born with a beautiful face; great loving soul; hands ready to work and serve with her whole heart.

She offers her service whenever possible. What I love most about her is her meekness. She doesn’t care what work she is entrusted with. One always notices her down-to-earth and wholehearted commitment and dedication to whatever she puts her hand into.

Growing up, her two older sisters (one is me) noticed her enviable straight legs… in perfect shape. Such a gift not everybody is gifted with.

Her wedding to her one and only hubby Albert was officiated by my late beloved Orville. They are gifted with two great children, Jonna Bea and Josh Berl, of which I was given the privilege to name them respectively.

Yes, our sister Joy has served her older & younger siblings in diverse ways; may it be through cooking, doing the laundry, taking care of our respective children in more ways than one and especially our late parents who departed on different times.

I always love the generosity of her spirit. She more-often-than-not gives and shares whatever she can even in the midst of adversity and (scarcity then).

Like her & her hubby, their son Josh Berl consequently does the same, always willing to share in his own capacity.

Their daughter is gifted to see things differently. So keen in many ways on things, individuals and events.

Our sister may be far from perfect (as every one is) but she has exuded a great and meaningful Life of Service.

To her children, our niece and nephew, may you treasure and honor your Mama Joyda knowing that you were the ones who chose her as your mother.

To her husband, may you continue to love and cherish her, spend time with her and simply appreciate every single act of support she gives to your family.

Joy, may your love for yourself, your family and humanity flourish in multiple productivity and fruitfulness.

Continue to embrace your brilliance and magnificence our dear sistah Joyda.

Remember that you are divine in a body. You are walking this earth’s plane for you to serve your purpose of service to humanity in whatever way.

Continue to be strong in life in the midst of prevailing circumstances. Fortitude is the courage to do the things that need be done in a particular time.

“Charm is deceitful and beauty is vain but a woman who fears the Lord shall be praised”


Our bro Jon and wife Yahnee gave an advance Birthday treat to our dear Joyda at Dani’s Palace & Shawarma Grill.
