Birthday Blessings

Pin It Now!


As I celebrate another year of life today, I'm reminded of the special people God has placed in my life. I didn't get to choose the family I was born into. BUT, I'm so blessed that God handpicked those people. 

I've been given wonderful parents who love me unconditionally. They've taught me so much in my 28 years of life. I'll forever be grateful. I have a sister who is also a friend; she understands things about me that no one ever will. That's what's special about the bond of sisterhood.

I've been blessed by beautiful and rich friendships which are truly an answer to prayer. I'm beyond blessed.

Most of all, I've been blessed by the gift of a husband. This man means more to me than I could ever hope to express in words. He is my perfect. I thank the Lord he knit us together in His love. 

I have been given the gift of life from a Savior that has known me before the world even began. He gave me life knowing full well that I would mess up...daily. He loved me enough to look beyond that. I owe Him my life. I will forever be indebted to Him and what He did for me on the cross. That's the richest blessing of all.  

It's so easy to let day to day living cloud out a grateful heart. I don't want to be that person. I want to take time to notice my blessings on this special and every single day. I want today to remind me that every other day of the year is worth celebrating. Life is worth celebrating. 

I hope you can do something today, big or small, to celebrate your life and the lives of others around you!
