The big 40!

I made it!

Today, 40 years ago, is the day my sweet mama, by the grace of God, gave birth to her last baby. My hard-working dad deemed me 'o.k.' even if I wasn't a boy....hahaha! Little did he know, I'd have him wrapped, in all the good ways, around my little finger before too long.

I was born into a God-fearing family that already housed two boys an a girl.

Thanks God, for life.

So, hooray for a trip 'home' - headed to Papa Don and Mom's house where I spent 18+ years growing up. I get to spend time with my brothers and their families, my kids get to run and play ....Happy Birthday to me! This all after a well needed facial at a spa this morning, Marand is spoiling me with, my eyebrows and upper lip are needing some serious attention! Hahahaha!

Our picnic by the lake yesterday was super....

I thumbed through my Bible this morning and decided to read Psalm 39 in honor of that year passing....and needless to say, as the God's holy words ALWAYS do, it rang true - I can testify with King David, that I have my hope in the one true, living GOD!

Psalm 39:4 "Lord, make me to know mine end, and the measure of my days, what it is; that I may know how frail I am. Behold, thou hast made my days as an handbreadth; and mine age is as nothing before thee; verily every man at his best state is altogether vanity. Selah. Surely every man walks in a vain show; surely they are disquieted in vain; he heaps up riches, and knows not who shall gather them. and now, Lord, what wait I for?

MY HOPE IS IN THEE!"
