Letting Go

Started a new book today, the Sacred Romance.

Had a super yummy mushroom and spinach pizza for lunch while watching PS I Love you

Shopping at Meijer with Phyllis

My dad made me a YUMMY dinner which was made up of fried chicken, mashed potatoes, vegetables, and we had leftover apple crisp that was as yummy today as it was yesterday with butter pecan ice cream.

Finishing the day watching one of my very favorite movies 'Invincible' wrapped up in a warm blanket.

It's up to me whether my birthday is remembered with happy memories or sad ones. And sometimes I can get wrapped up in what I don't have instead of the blessings around me, let's face it, sometimes I can be a real jerk because I am blessed beyond measure.

All the bad stuff it doesn't matter, the good stuff is what I need to count. There is one thing I really love about my birthday, that is that it starts the new year. It is full of endless possibilities and rarely finishes like I expect and the journey is beautiful and sometimes rocky, but always to the Glory of God. It reminds me of one of the most known scriptures when someone is saved or baptized... 2 Cor 5:17 “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!”

Today, is a blessing from God, a new day, full of endless love.

I am blessed.

And where is my PONY!?
Romans 15:29 I know that when I come to you, I will come in the full measure of the blessing of Christ.

Yes, indeed, I think I saw your pony headed to your home ... at least I think that's where he was going ... and he looked excited .. well, as much as a pony can that is.
