A special happy birthday and lots of thankfulness

Mom and baby me

Mom and baby me

I will give thanks to the Lord with my whole heart; I will recount all of your wonderful deeds. Psalm 9:1 (ESV)

Yesterday was a BIG day.

Two of my absolute favorite souls had a birthday yesterday.

My mother! And my doggie!

Each day God urges us to give thanks. It was so easy yesterday!

Well my thanksgiving is simple. I give thanks for the two bright spirits in my life.

Honor your father and mother. Matthew 19:19 (NLT). 

My mother has always been more like a best friend. A confidante. I can tell her anything. She has always stood by me and supported me with her whole soul.

She never stops believing in me and affirming my dreams – big and small.

And although the relationship is not perfect – no relationships are – it is a blessing. I am so thankful for her.

And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful. Colossians 3:15 (ESV)

Mom and Marley

Mom and Marley – Birthday Buddies

And my sweet little dog, Marley, has given unconditional love that only a dog can do.

His little face lights up every time I come home. And he follows me throughout the house. He is my little shadow.

My life would be so empty without his spirit.

Our animal companions are truly a blessing.

I give you thanks, O Lord, with my whole heart; before the gods I sing your praise. Psalm 138:1 (ESV)

I encourage you to take a moment out of the day to be thankful for the special souls God has put in our lives.

Wishing you hope, joy, and peace,

-Hope
