Happy Birthday to Me! Happy Birthday to Me! If you couldn't tell, today is my birthday. And I'd like to welcome you to my party!
I'm turning 21 again. Well, maybe not really ... I wouldn't want to be 21 again. But I am turning something. Like maybe a new leaf. I find myself looking for a new beginning this year. I don't really know why, but I feel impregnated with a new hope. A fresh outlook on life. Something exciting about to be birthed. The next BIG thing with God, because even the littlest things are BIG with Him.
And I'd like to invite you to celebrate with me.
As my birthday approached, I found myself pondering the past 41 years. I kept asking myself what I'd learned that would be valuable to someone else. What is my legacy? What am I leaving behind if God decided 41 years was long enough for me to be? Would I have anything to pass on to my children, both in the natural and the spiritual? Is there an ounce of wisdom in my graying hair?
I've discovered that I think there is.
For the next 41 Tuesdays (since my birthday fell on a Tuesday), I want to share a flower from the bouquet I have picked from the garden of my life. These are things the Lord has taught me. These are things I've discovered along my journey. These are things I've learned by watching others' examples. These are things I've heard spoken by others wiser than me. And now I want to share them with you...
I hope they bless you as much as they've blessed me!
Welcome to the party!
Watch for the first post next week. :) Until then ... may your life be inspired!
