Keeping it Real...
Welcome! No matter how you found this, God knew you'd be here today. May you absorb the message He has for you. In 2011 I shared through my writing, today I've learned there is more to me than just writing. I have the energy and passion to share with others. Sometimes through Facebook live and others with my blog and most importantly, I've learned my passion to cook and bake is a vessel to share my writing and live presentations, while glorifying God in the process. I just needed to let go, and follow His lead.
TOP's Tuesday: Birthday Blessings
Thank you for the Birthday blessings today!
I continue to read the different birthday expressions of love, friendship, encouragement, and celebration and at one point today, found myself crying. Why tears when so many are sharing such beautiful messages? Simple, I was overwhelmed by the birthday blessings that abound on my Facebook page. I'm undeserving of such encouragement and love, but aren't we all. Undeserving I mean.
Don't get me wrong, we all need a little appreciation, love, and encouragement in our lives. A little extra on our birthday, it is the day God chose to gift us to our parents after all. BUT...we don't deserve God's grace and mercy, He simply enjoys encouraging, uplifting, and blessing us. And one way He does this is through people like you on our birthday.
Some don't like social media because of the evils that lie within but there are evils in most things we do in life, just as there are many positives and blessings. Rather than focus on the negatives, let's celebrate the blessings. While I miss my sister, the funny birthday card she always gave (we had a competition of who could give the funniest card to the other each year), and the special sister time we spent...I'm thankful for all of you.
You've made my day so special, it's only 10:30 a.m. and I've received 167 FB birthday messages on my home page, not counting the private messages or texts received. This touches my heart so much that this many people took time to send a birthday message to me. Thank you ~ God's using your messages to encourage and help me to not miss Heidi so much today. As if this isn't enough, my parents called and are treating me to lunch! Yum!
