Birthday Blessings

I’m 41 today!  And how blessed I am…

·        God’s grace and mercy covers me EVERY day
·        My exodus from captivity (pre-Meniere’s) and being on the precipice of the Promised Land (health restoration)
·        God’s unfailing love
·        My husband – who has taken the vow of “in sickness and in health” and shown how it’s lived out
·        My beautiful, smart, healthy, funny, loving kids
·        My supportive and encouraging parents
·        My mom – who took me to church and taught me about Jesus very early on
·        My friends – true friends who have proven their love for me over the last two years
·        My best friend, Summer – a Jonathan/David friendship of two souls
·        My church, North Monroe Baptist – who cares and prays and encourages, without ceasing
·        My Faulk & Foster job, which is so much more – it’s family
·        A beautiful home, reliable car, comfortable clothes and abundant food
·        My health!

Psalm 103:1-5
1Praise the Lord, my soul;
    all my inmost being, praise his holy name.
Praise the Lord, my soul,

    and forget not all his benefits—
who forgives all my sins
    and heals all my diseases,
who redeems my life from the pit
    and crowns me with love and compassion,
who satisfies my desires with good things
    so that my youth is renewed like the eagle’s.
I can’t imagine anyone having a better birthday than this!
