First of all....
thank you, thank you, thank you.....
for all the sweet birthday wishes. I got so many wonderful comments and e-mails and e-cards and cards in the mail!!! And, Pappy took the day off and we spent the day together....and, Jess and The Dad and the boys got me a Vera Bradley Mesa Red cell phone holder....and...the most beautiful necklace you've ever seen....with the boys pics on a pendant that hangs off the beautiful beads (I'll try to post a pic of it later on)!!! And, I got some $$$$, and a candle and hand lotion and a mug tree (and the lady didn't even know that the grapes matched my kitchen exactly)....and a journal and a dish towel and a prayer magnet, and CHOCOLATE CANDY!!!!!

Dear Heavenly Father,
I come to you with all these requests. I don't even know what to ask on behalf of each of these people, Lord, except that you comfort them with whatever they are facing. Please wrap your loving arms around them, and give them the peace that can only come from You. Please, dear Lord, in whatever the situation may be for each of these requests, may You have all the glory!! I love you and I thank you for all the many blessings you've given me....most of all, Lord, that you sent your most precious Son, Jesus, to die for my sins.
In Jesus most blessed and holy name I pray this...AMEN.
In His Love...and with mine!!!
