Happy Birthday to me....

Yes, that's right it's my birthday today. Yay, me!!

Birthday Thoughts

I have learned not to fret about getting older (turned 47 today). It's a part of life. My focus is on Heaven because I think this life is a test to see if we will choose to love God and will follow what God tells us in His Holy Word the Bible and in the end Heaven is the passing grade. Everyone has that choice to follow God or not. The Bible gives us everything that pertains to life and Godliness (2 peter 1:3). It says “everything” not most things or some things, “Everything”! You know how some will joke that they were not given a manual or guidebook when they had kids, well, that is what God has given us, in the Bible, for living this life and it even has wisdom on how to bring up children. Everything in it is ageless, what pertained to those who wrote the Bible pertains to us now in 2008 and will pertain those in 2208. I just finished a class on Bible authority and we went over how we can know what we are doing in worship and our daily lives is scriptural. Anyway, I hope I wasn't too confusing. I get all this stuff in my head I want to say and then have a hard time getting it on paper...err..the screen..

Good Morning Cheryl,
"HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU, HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU, HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEAR CHERYL, HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU"!!!! I do hope you have a wonderful and relaxing day today. I enjoyed your post about Everything. That is so true. What pertains to the Bible now in 2008 will pertain to people in 2208 as well. "THANK YOU" for sharing this with us. It is another cold morning here. It is 22 degrees and another cold blast is in the forecast for tonight. They say we have another chance for some freezing rain on Friday. Yeah, right. LOL. Take care my friend and have a great day. May God Bless You and Yours.

Hugs,
Karen H.

Belated Happy Birthday! I did send a card, it might be late :( I like what you said, my Bible 102 course is going awesome and this week we are studying Isaiah - I can't believe how much more I have learned already! I think I have a class coming up that might be like what you took, I know I have Ethics and a few other types but anyway you are right and what great thoughts for your Birthday!!!!
