Happy Birthday To ME !

Today is my 54th birthday.
I woke to two cards from my sweet hubby.
One funny and one romantic !
I had to work today but came home to
soooo many Facebook wishes from dear friends,
acquaintances, co-workers etc . . .
I also received phone calls & birthday cards from
so many dear friends.
Such a blessing to be thought of and remembered . . .
I have been facilitating a study from
Ann Voskamp.  
We really just started with lesson one but
already I am looking for those "gifts"
God showers us with each day.
This morning being my birthday I especially
had thankfulness on my mind.
I noticed the cool breeze hitting my
face as I got in my car.
The bright sunshine in my eyes driving to work.
Heading home the sunset was beautiful.
I truly am "rich"
I am 54 and have never spent 1 night in a hospital.
I have always had a warm bed, a roof over my
head and plenty of food.
I have always had a job.
I had a precious little Westie ~
Solomon who I loved with all my heart.
I have a loving family, dear friends~ many I
have had since I was 8 years old.
I have wonderful caring in-laws.
I have a WONDERFUL Godly Husband.
He has added such adventure and travel
to my life ~ we are always on the go.
One of my Facebook friends, John, likes
to write . . . Where in the World Is Maryellen hah
I have my Lord and Savior Jesus
I have the Holy Spirit to guide and direct
I have an amazing Father God in Heaven
I am praying this new year of 54 I never stop
counting my gifts . . .
That like Ann, I look for them each day and each
Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.  James 1:17
