Not to toot my own horn, but...

Sunday, January 12, 2020

Today is my birthday!! I share this not to gain well wishes (although I appreciate them and they are wonderful), but it is truly a blessing to state that fact. Tomorrow is not promised. Heck, the next moment is not promised, so let us do our best to live with grace, gratitude, and the glory that has been bestowed on us by our Creator (or the Universe, if you prefer)!!

I may have mentioned this before, but Eeyore is my Spirit Animal emoticon He is not the happiest camper in the world, but he is loyal and delights in the simplest things (thistle flowers and clouds). I do my best to my carry his good qualities with me and show them to the world. It can be a struggle!!

I want to share two songs with you that have helped me through. The first is from "Avenue Q"
called "Purpose" (there is some adult language, so if you prefer not to listen, that is okay):

The other song is "I'm Blessed" by Charlie Wilson:

I hope the links work, and that you all have a wonderful, blessed day!! Thanks for stopping by emoticon

    Happy Birthday to you! I think it's perfectly wonderful to tell people it's your birthday and give them a chance to wish someone well - we have so many reasons to complain - well-wishing needs its turn!

    And too true - every time I grouse or complain I feel ashamed afterwards - I got my now - it wasn't promised. Love today because tomorrow is not guaranteed.

    A Very happy birthday to you.As the wife of a tactical soldier for more years than I care to count I am well aware tomorrow is not promised and as he says he was the one with the really dangerous job but I was the one that got hit by a drunk driver and a senile old man so he knows tomorrow is not promised too ! I am off to listen to your songs !

    It's true, we are not promised tomorrow. But when that last day comes, as that's a guarantee. It is wonderful to have the promise of eternity with my creator since Jesus Christ is my savior. What a promise I have. Meanwhile, Happy birthday on your special day!
