Yesterday I celebrated my 69th birthday.
Yep. 69 years.
Several hundred friends sent me birthday greetings on Facebook and a bunch of folks texted or called. I enjoyed FaceTime connections with all but one of the grands and gifts from the family and several friends.
I also got a great word from the Scriptures when God reminded me of all of the blessings of my life. Just as I thank God for my mother and father who brought me into this world, I am grateful for the day I was born again and my new life began.
I am blessed because of Jesus.
The older I get the more I understand just how amazing grace really is.
