I will praise the LORD all my life; I will sing praise to my God as long as I live. Psalm 146:2
Tomorrow is my birthday! Birthday's have always been a really big deal to me. I guess I feel like everybody should have a special day to Celebrate Life. So I try to make my kids and my husband's birthday really special every year.
This year I am spending a day with my mom and dad and then heading to meet my husband for a weekend away from the kids. One morning to sleep in will be glorious (although I am sure I will be wide awake at 7am).
My mom is on a cleaning frenzy in her basement so last night I had to go through two boxes of old stuff and decide what I wanted to take home and what I wanted her to throw away.
It is always fun (and a little scary) to walk down memory lane. I found one treasure last night. It was a poetry journal that I had in middle school. I have always loved to write and it was hilarious to read what some of my earliest writing included. I also love rhyming so all of my poetry had to flow with rhyming words. My mom and I laughed. It took me back to my little world as a pre-teen.
It inspired my oldest. She immediately had to find a empty notebook that she could start writing in. I love it that she loves to write, too. It made me think about the spiritual gifts that God has given me. They really do start to show, even as a young child. It is exciting to see what God may have in store for my girls.
In celebration of my 32nd birthday I am going to have a special post tomorrow. Hopefully the motel we are staying in will cooperate with my MacBook. Make sure you stop in and leave a comment to enter my giveaway.
Have a wonderful Friday!
