Thirty-nine years ago today, I was born.  It seems very strange.  I don’t feel like I’ve lived long enough, have enough authority to be, or have enough experience to claim thirty-nine years.  I remember when my parents were my age, and they seemed completely in control, larger than life, in charge, and in authority.  Inside, I often feel none of those things, and I wonder if my parents felt the same way as they approached landmark years.

I find it hard to believe that I’ll be teaching my daughter to drive next year, yet I have friends from high school whose children are off to college or are already parents themselves.  Strange how I’m old enough to be a grandmother a couple times over, yet I have a two-year old.

God has really worked in my life in the last few years, and He isn’t finished yet.  I know He has big plans for me, and I look forward to the next thirty-nine years, and then some.

For a birthday present to me, pop over to our missions giveaway for March.  I want to hear about your favorite missions – what means the most to you?  Last year we had such a tremendous response with a fraction of the readers and half of the donation amount.  I’m not certain what has you all so quiet this year, but don’t be!  Tell me about it!  I want to read about your favorite ministry or charity and I can’t if you don’t share.  Doing so might win it a $100 donation!



I’m so grateful for your visit, today.
