Ecclesiastes 11:5-7 New International Version (NIV)
As you do not know the path of the wind,
or how the body is formed in a mother’s womb,
so you cannot understand the work of God,
the Maker of all things.
Today is my daughter's (Tracy) birthday. I remember the day I birthed her and the joy that filled my soul. I felt so much love on that day and as I looked at her, I saw a part of me. I wanted to be a good mom and teach her things of life. Even now, I see little girl at times, but she is a grown woman with her own daughter (Averie) now. I see the way she looks at her and the joy that comes on her face. I also see the joy that comes on Averie's face when she see's her mommy. It's makes a mother's heart happy.
Tracy prayed for a baby girl and God answered. Yet, she went through sorrow first of loosing a child and the wonder of why. There are many wonders of life and scripture to hold us together. Each of us are God's handiwork and God continues to have a plan.
Ephesians 2:10 New International Version (NIV)
For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
There will be things we don't understand in life, but God plan remains the same. Jeremiah 29:11 a plan, a promise and a future. We celebrate life with birthday cakes and presents. The joy of time with someone who has a birthday day. I am proud of my daughter in many ways. I see a woman of faith and one of determination is life. She is also a step mom to three wonderful boys. I see the joy on the boys faces when they see their little sister too. Her family has been through a lot in life and she continues to hold strong in faith. Their house burned in the Napa fires almost 2 years ago. Life presents us each different things of sorrows but the joy of others. They are now rebuilding their house and wait patiently for it to be done.
Today I wanted to say the joy of life and it does comes with some sorrows. God has proved miracles over miracles in my life and my family. I want to thank God now for the joy of life and the blessings he has given me as well. My daughter's face holding her baby is a true gift from God. I pray over her daily, her family and friends. I know that God has greater plans ahead and this family will prosper in many ways. A mother's prayer matters and her love too. I give it all to my family and I know I am loved back. The joy of being a Grammie and I can't explain the depth of that. I will do my best daily to teach and lead by God's word (Bible). I will give the gift of time and take the gift of time with others. Thank you God for my daughter and my family.
Happy Birthday to my daughter day and I thank God for you!
I pray daily for the readers of my blog, your family and friends too. Please know that your life is purposed and God has greater in a new day for you too. I hope the desires of your heart come quickly and let God bring peace in all circumstances of life. He is faithful and remains the same. What he did a long time ago, he will still do today ~ MIRACLES HAPPEN.
