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.
I will be glad and rejoice in thy mercy; for thou hast considered my trouble; thou hast known my soul in adversities;
"NOW THANKS BE UNTO GOD, WHICH ALWAYS CAUSETH US TO TRIUMPH IN CHRIST !"
The LORD is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear?The LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
When the wicked came against me to eat up my flesh, my enemies and foes, they stumbled and fell. Though an army encamp against me, my heart shall not fear....Psalm 27 1-3
Psalm 31: 7, 8
And hast not shut me up into the hand of the enemy; thou hast set my feet in a large room.
