I remember stating that my word for my 24th year of life was "humility." I would say 25 was a year of "discovery." And now, 26 is definitely "faith."
I am anxious to begin my next year of life. To be honest I'm always ready for my birthday. I see it as a day to start fresh, a new chapter, another opportunity to see what the sweet Lord will bring.
Already I know that it will bring a multitude of beautiful weddings, a new place to live and a fab new roommate, an opportunity to serve on the board of directors for a nonprofit I'm crazy about and a trip to China. Not bad, huh?
God is good my friends. If I have learned a single fact in my 26th year is that He is kind and caring and crazy about me (and you). He weeps when I weep and sits with me during my suffering. He will NEVER leave me.
I hope you have a beautiful day tomorrow. And if you can't find any joy in your day, just remember that and revel in His love.
