Thank you, mitchteemley. for sharing this blog post with me! Love it!! You pulled me in from the title and I couldn’t resist delving further! I love to “brag” about the Author of the greatest Message and book in the world!!
Hi everyone! The sun is getting ready to set and it has been a beautiful day here in Washington state. We are heading toward my favorite time of day, the “magic hour,” when the sun is low and near the horizon, providing a warm glow.
This time of day is perfect for reflection over the day, week, and–for today– the past year. You see, it’s my birthday!! 47 years old today and I thank God for every year He has blessed me with!!
As young as I am, I have outlived my mom, a few high school friends, and other family members and I do not take my life for granted in any way.
Thank you to all of my family and friends that have blessed me today but most importantly thank you God for EVERYTHING!!
All the glory to God,
