26 Years in The Making!

On June 20th, I just had my 26th Birthday! I am so happy to still be around and to be so rich in blessings. So thankful to still be alive... the other day I was driving my car and I was singing along to this song I was just thinking about how much the Lord has blessed me throughout my life. I have a loving family, food, shelter, clothing, a car, the freedom to worship as I please...the list can go on and on. This is not even mentioning keeping me alive through 3 bouts with cancer and my daily struggle with dialysis. It got pretty emotional to say the least. I had tears of joy pouring out of my face and a great big smile as I was praising the Lord! (My heart felt like it was on fire!)



Thank you Lord for keeping me around... Thank you Lord for all of your blessings! Lord Jesus, I pray that I will always be a good influence to those that come in contact with me. Amen!

So glad you posted that video! I turned the volume up and was blessing the Lord. Today is my blog's one year birthday, and I'm just amazed at how God has/and will continue to work in our lives! The words that really stand out to me in that song is "I choose to say..." Praise the Lord for His goodness to us!

Thanks Thomas and God bless you!
