HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!!

How did I get to be 62 years old today?  I can remember thinking that 50 was old.  It just doesn't seem real.  I am blessed to be here, for sure.  I am just trying to follow God closer and to live the plan He has for me.  I know that He is always in control and that He is good and He is good ALL the time!

This time last year, I would have never believed that my husband of 42 years would be gone.  The past years have been a roller coaster for sure.  I have lost my precious Jennifer, have fought and won my third battle with breast cancer (that started in 1999), have lost my home and all my belongings in the house fire and then lost my husband in February of this year.  Life will never be the same again.  I just have to continue to stand on the promise that I will see my loved ones again.  I have to be grateful for all that I have and appreciate and cherish family and friends and realize how precious each day is....each day we are given, is truly a gift. 

I am studying God's word more than I ever have, listening to what He is telling me and trying to do more for others.  I truly believe that we are to be Christ followers and to help people in any way that we can. 

Things are so different for me now....but I get with the love of help of my precious sister, friends, and church family!  God really is good and He is good ALL the time!

I feel very blessed and grateful to be celebrating another birthday!
