Today I Received the Best Birthday Gift!

I am actually looking forward to each day of the rest of my life! I am 62 years old today and for the past two or three years I have been struggling with LIFE! I have been just dealing with one problem after another; with my kids; with my friends; with my husband, my siblings, my parents, financial, emotional, physical, spiritual battles, housing, work and all the many many things which comprise most peoples lives

I felt like I was being overloaded with problems, having multiple catastrophic problems sometimes in one day and frequently in one week!  Not a week would pass without some kind of problem with which I had to deal; a death of a dear friend or neighbor or relative, severe medical crisis within our family or circle of friends, some pressing legal issue, or someone robs us!

If you are a believer you might say that we were being hellaciously attacked by our enemy; the devil!  I have often heard it said that the more you seek after God; the harder the devil will attack you to try to keep you from succeeding in your efforts;

Today, though, I got a glimpse of the future; the one where GOD is reigning and where there is peace and joy abundantly!  There are no more worry, trials, or burdens; no tears will be shed there will only be happiness forever and ever!

I had a very wonderful and happy birthday with no cake or ice cream or celebrations of one more year added to my life! I had an ordinary lunch with my husband (whom I love dearly) and one of our friends (Jack) who we both love very much; my daughter Rachel gave me some dollar-store items (very sweet) that I will enjoy for a while, another daughter, Lesli, called me on the phone to wish me happy birthday (I havent heard from the rest of them but I am sure they love me and I will always love them too)!  Even if they did overlook my birthday, LOL, I understand and am very happy anyway because GOD loves them and everyone else; me too!
