I just want to thank the Lord for giving me a wonderful birthday:). He knows just what we need and when we need it.
My first birthday after I started my RJ was a birthday where the Lord assured me of His love and made me feel special by giving me a special verse from His Word. I really needed it so desperately, I truly felt "like a wife forsaken and grieved in spirit, Even like a wife of one's youth when she is rejected" as mentioned in Isaiah 54:6. And the Lord became my Husband.
So my second birthday, was a quiet one, without any fuss made and just the peace of the Lord within me as I needed no more at that stage. A lot of the family and friends I love were still kept out of my life while the Lord was doing much needed work on my heart and in my life.
Oh, but this year, He really went all out:)!!! I can honestly say I have never been so spoiled in my whole life. It was such a wonderful time with Him and my children. I got birthday wishes from so many people. The Lord showed me how blessed I am to have so many people that really cares for me. And the most wonderful of it all is that without me knowing, it was exactly what I needed this year.
I wonder what He has planned for me next year... I cannot wait!!! Thank You Lord! I can say in all honesty that my last 3 birthdays have been without a doubt the best ones. I love you with all my heart and my cup is running over:)

Today morning, EH told me that it would be very nice if I could be a stay at home mom! This can only come from my HH! I feel so humbled and honored to be with Him and know that He is taking care of everything!
