Birthday Hugs and One Wish

Today it's my birthday . . .and I just want to embrace life in the fullest.

My life is full of joy in abundance.

I am so thankful to be alive, to be breathing, to have a wonderful family, to kiss my husband's scratchy half-beard face (his co-workers call him cake face), to watch my sweet girls sleep in, to rub my fingers through my dogs' short fur, to drink my favorite tea, to soak in the green and blue of the morning (green for all the lush plants and blue for the sky).

I'm just loving life.

And I hope you are too.


My one wish for my birthday is this: that each person on this planet would know joy deep down in their hearts - that each person would know that they are fully loved.

"Rejoice in the Lord always. Again, I say, Rejoice!" Philippians 4:4

"You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly (that's all of us). Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous man, though for a good man someone might possibly dare to die. But God demonstrated his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us." Romans 5:6-8 (God really loves us, each of us, no matter where we are or what we've done.)

"And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds." Hebrews 10:24

Hi Tyrean -
