“Blessed be the Lord: for He hath shewed me His marvellous kindness in a strong city.”
I sit here thoroughly enjoying the remains of a rather delicious birthday dessert and find myself pretty well humbled by God’s goodness!!☺️ How undeserving I am yet how loving He is. I can wholeheartedly say “He hath shewed me His marvellous kindness”[Psalm 31:21]. He daily loads me with blessings + benefits that cannot be numbered and has used the kindness of sweet people- my family and friends… YOU in my life to be minsters of His grace. Thank you!💛 Your birthday wishes that sailed across the miles made my birthday joy-filled + extremely special, putting a huge smile on my face! :) And today, here I am. 28 years old/young! For me, 28 is uncharted territory BUT for God my 28th has been well planned out and very skillfully plotted! He knows the path that I take and whatever it may hold, come joy or sorrow, He promises pure gold at the end[Job 23:10]. Whether I make it 2 weeks into 28 or another 28 years, I can rest assured that “The LORD will perfect that which concerneth me” [Ps 138:8]! I trust that as the Lord God is my Savior, the days ahead will be filled with grace & glory[Ps 84:11], fullness of joy[John 15:11»Ps 16:11], mercy[Is 54:10], peace[Jn 14:27], and I shall not want any good thing[Ps 23:2 » Ps 34:9-10 ]. The sufficiency of Christ has satisfied my longing soul! He truly is faithful and I am extremely excited to see what the days ahead hold!! My goals and aspirations for 28? To draw near + trust! “But it is good for me to draw near to God: I have put my trust in the Lord God, that I may declare all thy works“ [Ps 73:28] 💁🏼So, who wants to join me for the golden adventures that 28 holds? 😉 Come what may, I will be blogging life along the way[Lord willing]! 😄
“…my people shall be satisfied with my goodness, saith the LORD.”
My birthday was spectacular and relaxing and delicious all at once! My family really went out of their way to make it a blessed and restful day. ☺️💗 After our Sunday worship, we headed to my FAVORITE coffee shop and then treated the kiddos to Krispy Kremes[because who can resist the “hot now” sign?!] The rest of the afternoon was enjoyed at home in the sunshine! Pretty wrapping paper left me dazzled, Dinner was delectable, and dessert did me in. 🎂Grace completely surprised me with a few family games that got us all laughing so hard! 😂💕 BEST EVER. I couldn’t have chosen a better way to spend my 28th birthday and I’m so very thankful to the Lord! Now I have a few pictures to prove it happened! :) Enjoy the photos and have a wonderfully blessed + beautiful day!
