For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.
Today I celebrate my birth and I can see how far God has brought my life. As a little girl, I wanted to grow up to teach others to be kind. I was bullied as a kid and made fun of a lot I struggled with self and the big wonder of life. I can honestly say that I did grow up to teach others to be kind. I have many people who care about my life and show me. It's important to see ourselves the way God does.
Years ago, I felt God speak to my heart about writing a blog. I had a friend who created this blog for me and I know that God gives me words to write daily. Not only do I write, but I honestly pray for you daily. So many things happen in life and suddenly happens to each of us. God can use all of our hurts, brokenness and heal our hearts.
I AM WHO I AM ~
God has brought some amazing people into my life. People who live the word of God and taught me many things. I see the value of one day and living it to the fullest. I purpose time with God to thank him for a new day and my life.
It's through one life that gave me life (JESUS). I give honor to my mom and dad today. They both rest in heaven now and I will always remember their love for me. My mom (Alice) was good mom. Her mom died when she was five years old and passed around to other family members. She missed out on hugs, smiles, talks, walks and a caring mom. I didn't see that as a kid, I wanted a mom like other moms. I see who they got hugged and loved at school. My mom had me walk to school with my brother. I missed out or did I? It made me into the person I am today. I care about kids and I show them. I love helping at my granddaughters school. I'm a Grandma who makes a difference in lives and I see that.
I see this picture of me as a little girl and I see a girl who loves God. I have learned much about life and I do my best to help others through their own pains. God is one who restores lives and sets them apart. We were never designed to be the same, but different in the way God made us. After all, he says we are his masterpiece. That's a pretty special person. I hope you see yourself the way God does.
MY BIRTH ~
I am a Wife, Mom, Grandma, Friend, Writer, Speaker, Leader, Helper and Encourager.
Taking all the titles off of me, I am a kind person. I have desires of my heart and I am a lot like you. Each of us are human and our choices of life directs our path. Each though leads to another thought. Can we just see ourselves the way God does and live in that? Can we forgive ourselves for our own mistakes? Can we ask God to come into our hearts and make everything new again? The answer to all those questions is YES. Can not only restores us but he helps us to live his word (Bible). I remember asking God for real friends and he certainly did that. I remember asking God to restore my thought pattern to a right one and he did that. I don't have all the answers in life, but I know the grace and mercy of God will follow you. So when you look around, you see God too.
I am HAPPY today that God created my life. I don't know what this day holds but God does. I trust him and that's enough for me. I hope you do too. Please know today that you are loved, cared about and prayed for in life. I believe I had grandparents who prayed, but I didn't know them. I pray daily for my grandchildren and their children and their children. Generations to come to know the Lord and live according to his plan. I can see how one life makes a difference.
I care about you readers of my blog, your family and friends too. I don't need to know every name who reads this but God does. I pray in the now and in future for my family and friends too. God is able and never forget that. Think of me today as I celebrate my birth and know that one life makes such a difference. Thank you for taking time to read this. I'm just a little girl inside who keeps that dream alive of kindness and Jesus.
Happy Day to all.
