Even though it is raining outside and no sun, I feel sun. The light in my life is bright now although it always hasn't been. I am finally healthy and strong. God has richly blessed me as I know if it was His will, I would not be here today.
I have been reading a book every night (it is a thick book), named "Joshua". It has taken me a long time to read it but I enjoy it. It speaks of a simple man, Joshua (who is Jesus), who makes an impact on everyone he meets. He fears nothing as he trusts his "Father", and I have come to realize at this point in my life that nothing is ours, it is all God's Will.............when God wills my work to be finished, then he will want me with Him. So worrying about it does no good as I have no control.
In the last couple months, I am a changed person. Still a bit eccentric, excitable, but my being has mellowed. Maybe that is the Lord's birthday gift for me. I have been blessed and I thank Him everyday for all the things I have. Living in a country that is free, having a family who loves me dearly, giving me parents that not only took care of my physical needs but let me be "me." In fact my birthday card from my mother arrived yesterday and was about me being the most "unique" person and I thank the Lord my parents accepted and loved me for that. I am married to a man who wouldn't give up on me..........and children who adore me even though there isn't much to adore, and friends who have come into my life and showed me love. I have food on the table every day and clothes to wear (even though I live in bluejeans). So, this day, my birthday, I can thank God for all the birthdays that He has given me because so many people are not as fortunate as I am.
I wish everyone in the world today would be as fortunate. I pray for that.
