Happy Birthday to Me!!!

Seriously this is my third attempt to blog re: my birthday present. The first two ended up somewhere in cyberspace. Anyway, my husband listened carefully to the voice of God and gave me a priceless gift for my fortieth birthday. With the help of my friend Laurie Hare he compiled two scrapbooks with letters, cards and pages from friends and family. Certainly as I read it and enjoyed it for the first time, words failed me. Words still fail me!!!

Thank you to all for your heartfelt words, your creativity and your love that was poured out in the pages. Truly it is a gift I will cherish all my days!! What struck me is that the books really weren't about me, but really they were about Jesus. He has poured out His love into my heart. He has given me the abundant life that He promises. He has brought amazing people into my life.

Also, I need to say thank you to those who were my husband's little helpers....my mom for coordinating my pre-David life. Nikki Hill for taking amazing pictures of my children. Robin for pulling together my neighbors. I'm sure there were many others who helped David with this project. Thank you All!!!
