In 41 days I will celebrate my 60th birthday.
Along the way I am reminded of the many blessings God has bestowed on my life from the very beginning.
God knew me from before I was born and loved me even then. When I am troubled and feel alone I am reminded of His love, mercy, and grace. These were gifts to me from the beginning.
Too often we overlook the blessings right in front of us: the sunrise, a smile, an encouraging word, a beautiful scenery. We look past these to the chaos that surrounds us.
Today I celebrate God’s love, mercy, and grace which He prepared for me long before my birth.
Thank you Lord.
