Birthday today

Today is my birthday. And I'm 39. The real 39--the one you hit after 38, not the mythical 39 that people jokingly claim they are.

Today is also the 65th anniversary of Pearl Harbor Day. As a girl I thought that Pearl Harbor Day sounded pretty until I realized the historic carnage associated with it. But I still like sharing such a historic marker with the day of my birth.

I am so grateful today for so many things.

My husband, the love of my life, my biggest fan, and the most gorgeous guy I know. He's also smart, loving, a great father, loves Jesus, fun at a get the picture.

My three amazing children--8, 6 and 4. They are unique and beautiful creations of God. They are my pride and joy.

My health.

The wealth I have been blessed with--a home of our own, plenty of food for my kids, two cars, the freedom to make life-changing decisions about where and when we will move, fresh water that flows from our taps--so, so much that is easy to take for granted.

The desire to create and communicate.

A calling to minister to others, especially college students and young adults.

The yearning in my gut that urges me to push onward, to discover again and again what I was created for, and to learn to follow Jesus in new and fresh ways because I love Him and He reached down to love me. He became one just like me.

Thanks, Lord, for all you have done.

Happy Birthday, late! Hope you celebrated well.
Your birthday is also the day my class got the results of our standard ordination exams in Seminary! Never a day to be forgotten.
