A cupcake with a candle in it, is a sign of a special day. Maybe your birthday and time to blow out the candle. One candle is for one special person for a special day!
Memories flow back of a person having their first birthday. Often many people gather and find the joy in remembering the day the person was born. Today marks my Granddaughter Willow's, 4th birthday. The joy that day brought and the joy somehow continues to build each time I think of her.
A cupcakes with a candle can also celebrate a new beginning. It's your first car, your first job or first of anything. Instead of a cake with many candles, one is selected because you are special and it's your special day of age. It is all done with love and wanting to celebrate you! Years pass and memories are held tight within our hearts.
Some kids are gone way to soon to Heaven and we miss them everyday of life. We miss that one candle to light and them blowing it out. I have friends who had kids went Heaven from birth, preschool, grade school, middle school, high school and different ages. It's not only a kid things, but young adults of all ages.
My heart goes out to those missing people today. Their special day is filled with different memories and it becomes hard. I never take one day for granted because I've seen too much and how suddenly things can change. I know how that one candle means more than blowing it out. It means another time we share together. A special day is day filled with a love that God gives and a trust beyond my own understanding on things. In all areas, I have learned to trust in God.
In the Bible, love is spoken of in different ways. Yet one Chapter of Love remains strong in my heart.
1 Corinthians 13:4-7 New Living Translation (NLT)
4. Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud 5 or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. 6 It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. 7 Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.
YOUR SPECIAL DAY ~ is now and filled with love
Looking beyond your season and see the seasons of life that have grown you. It is easy to become bitter in hard times or not understanding the love of God. I have question how can a God love you when he takes the closest thing to your heart? My answer is when my dad died and I was 18 years old. It was a time of not understanding and I was mad at God. Then years later, I realized the scripture of a time to be born and a time to die. We will not know the exact time of birth but we know close to it. We will not know the exact time of death at all. So each day is filled with choosing to believe God holds life and death in his hands.
My special day is the day that I wake up everyday of life. Another day to make a difference, another day to see the importance of my life and another day to write you. The readers of my blog are special to me and I pray daily as I write this blog. I don't know what you are going through today but God does. I believe that he brought you to this page to read words of hope and life. You are special to God and he wants you to feel special. Through it all, you have a choice to believe and hold onto his promises within the Bible.
Yes, today is your special day too ~
A day of new beginnings and allow joy to fill your soul. Hold each day special within your heart and choose right thoughts and actions. Speak words of life to yourself and allow yourself to smile. I value your time in reading this and my prayers continue!
Happy Birthday Willow
