Actually, it’s my birthday, too, and, if you head over here, this sweetie miracle celebrates today, too! Please keep them in your prayers.
I’m 37, if you must know. But for me, age is just a number. It doesn’t bother me. I actually am enjoying the process because each year as I grow in the Lord, I learn a whole heck of a lot more than what I thought I knew, say in my teens and early twenties. I was born in Toledo, Ohio. I was 5 lbs when I was born…the only time in my history I’ve been ‘under weight’. A middle child, loving my big sis, Ashley and little sister, who we lovingly call ‘Danar’. I am so blessed to have the parents that I do! I can’t rave enough about my husband and kid (if you never noticed…)! My grandparents ROCK! My aunts, uncles, and cousins are great! I have three handsome nephews and two beautiful nieces, with another niece on the way in April and I’ll find out if it’s another niece or nephew tomorrow with my little sister, arriving in May! I have the very best in-laws known to man…like, we are actually all friends! And, speaking of friends, my life is full…I am very humbled to be able to call all those I do, my friend.
If it’s your birthday, too, I pray that this new year of life for you is filled with wonder and awe. I pray that if you don’t know the love God has freely offered you in Jesus that this year will change all that and you’ll begin on an amazing love affair you never knew possible. If you do know God but have lived in constant disappointment with the way He works and how it doesn’t line up with your plans, I pray that your heart would be softened to see that His plans are good, they are to prosper you and not harm you, give you hope and a future…it just may not look like you would have imagined, but take it from me, it can be more beautiful than you ever dreamed…
