Birthday Wishes...

Today is my 45th birthday! I have had an incredible day. My PFFs made my day so good.  I was picked up at 9 a.m. by Ruth and Heather (aka PFFs) and taken out for breakfast, which included a little gift. (don't ya know) Then they took me to Ruth's house to spend the day "playing" in her craft room.  Every so often either Ruth or Heather would leave the room and come back in with a little gift for me. Must have ended up with 7 or 8 special little gifts... including 3 bottles of Stickles and a gift certificate from SU!!!  It was just a fun day of laughter and only a couple happy tears!  Thanks Ruth & Heather for being my PFFs! Love you girls!

I have received so many birthday wishes from my facebook friends... makes me feel so loved. One message really struck me... she asked me, "what do you think God was feeling when you were born?"  Wow, I have never thought of that... have you thought about that for your own birth? A few months ago I would have thought not too much about that, but now I know how much God loves me and how precious I am to Him.  He was happy the day I was born... He could see all He had in store for me... He could see all the good and the bad... and He still loved me so much.  I don't know about you, but that just blows my mind and makes my heart leap with joy.  Papa God is so precious to me! 

"I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, And that my soul knows very well." - Psalm 139:14

I just had to share this with you all.  Thanks for stopping!
with a grateFUL HEART, carin
