Praise you Lord for my Birthday!
Yes, today was my birthday and it brought so much thanksgiving to my heart. Here are some of the things that touched my heart on my birthday:
-Hearing my 13+ family members all sing in unison "Happy Birthday" into the speaker phone, 450 miles away (I miss them terribly).
-Getting another phone call from my parents, just the two of them, singing "Happy Birthday". They do this every year and it never gets old. They usually battle to see who can say the last "and many more".
-Receiving the most beautiful handmade card from my best friend.
-Being sung "Happy Birthday" by my church family.
-Breakfast in bed, and Chinese for lunch followed by a long nap.
-My boyfriend who "can't" write cards, but made every word so touching.
-Getting a call from my birth mother and enjoying hearing her laugh.
-Realizing that each and every day is a gift from God and that He has blessed me with such a wonderful host of family and friends.
Lord, I am so thankful for blessing me as you have. Thank you for knowing me before anyone else, and forming me so gently. Lord, I praise you on my Birthday, and everyday for His.
