Over the years we get excited to celebrate certain numbers of birthdays. For example, the first birthday, 16th, and 18th birthdays. I am excited to say that my daughter is having a daughter due July 3rd of this year. There is something about a little life inside another person who came from you. I hope that makes sense, but it's a happy feeling knowing your daughter is seeing a desire of her heart come to pass. My daughter is carrying her baby girl and that makes my heart happy.
Ephesians 2:10 English Standard Version (ESV)
For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.
The degree of skill with which a product is made or a job well done
God has created each of us for a much larger picture of life. He connects our lives with others and we learn from them, plus they learn from us. Hopefully they learn and not grow bitter because of wrong choices. I have learned a lot from my daughter. She has studied and grown into a great counselor, but also a great example of pressing forward. I gave birth to her, but she helped me see myself the way God does. May 29th was one of the best days of my life. When I saw her, I couldn't even imagine my life without her. She was such a gift from God and I saw that God entrusted her to me.
Our example makes such a difference in life. I truly do not believe I would be who I am today without my daughter. She has spoken words of life to me and helped me through such hard times of life. Yes, I have been there for her too. It is what family does and I give God all the praise for her life.
Life is about living and the freedom that only God can give. We should never compare our lives to someone else or never want to be anyone but you. You were designed unique and full of purpose. Not only do we have a real birthday, but we have a real new birth through God. A new day brings hope and your very own decisions can be those of a lifetime.
I hope you know I care and my prayers are daily with you, your family and friends. My heart is happy today as I rejoice with my daughter for her birth. Happy Birthday Tracy!
Purpose this a good day!
