I've had a very nice birthday today. As a matter of wonderment, I don't remember anyone outside of the family EVER making ME a birthday cake before, but ROSE did ! In fact, she made me TWO ! She and Josephine and the baby, Elizabeth, came up, ..... and hubby and I had cake and ice cream with them.
While they were here, my older brother called and he and his wife serenaded me with the birthday song. I opened a fun package from girlfriend, Wanda Gayle, got a new commission from Jodie Ann, and hubby gave me money to spend on Connecting Thread's Black FridaySale. I got to speak with my beautiful granddaughter who shares my birthday out in Oklahoma........she's 9 already !
Now I'm stuffed and relaxing in front of the computer. Sadly, I noticed in my birthday photos that there's a bit more of me this birthday, so the celebrating needs to end, and the pushing back from the table must begin ! Anyone with me there?
Another little downer.......the dryer quit again, and this time I think I'm going to have to replace it. I hung a small load of clothes out on the line today, and the RAIN got them ! Bad time of the year to be without a dryer, but the LORD will provide, as he takes such good care of hubby and me.
" Do you not know?
Have you not heard???
The LORD is the everlasting GOD,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He will not grow tired or weary,
and His understanding no one can fathom.
He gives strength to the weary,
and increases the power of the weak.
Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;
but those who hope in the LORD
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint." Isaiah 40:28-31
"The Sovereign LORD has given me an instructed tongue, to know the word that sustains the weary.
He wakens me morning by morning, wakens my ear to listen like one being taught." Isaish 50:4
