Thank You's as we journey

Dear Friends and Family,

Thank you so much for making life after 30 so fun and memorable! My birthday was full of lots of laughter, yummy treats, and some great gifts from the boys! Oh and a suprise visit from my parents...better known by the boys at Nana and Papa!!


Thank to the Engineer for the most delicious cinammon rolls and Oregon Chai tea for breakfast! Thank you for treating me like a princess, and continuing to be my best friend, I love you!

Thank you to my boys who picked out gifts from their hearts to bring joy to mine, socks, Diego birthday card, chocolate covered eggs, and clear nail polish. You made mommy feel VERY special, I love you boys from here to the moon and back a million zillion times!

Thank you mom and dad for making the trip over to suprise me, oh and the very yummy angel food cake decorated with chocolate covered strawberries, the gifts, the lunch and Red Robin, and for loving on the boys too, I love you mom and dad!

Thank you to all my blog friends who decorated their blogs, who left songs of joy, and who celebrated with me! You guys are awesome and I love you!

Thank You Father God for reminding me of this:

But now, God's Message, the God who made you in the first place, Jacob,
the One who got you started, Israel:
"Don't be afraid, I've redeemed you.
I've called your name. You're mine.
When you're in over your head, I'll be there with you.
When you're in rough waters, you will not go down.
When you're between a rock and a hard place,
it won't be a dead end—
Because I am God, your personal God,
The Holy of Israel, your Savior.
I paid a huge price for you:
all of Egypt, with rich Cush and Seba thrown in!
That's how much you mean to me!
That's how much I love you!
I'd sell off the whole world to get you back,
trade the creation just for you.
Isaiah 43:1-4 The Message


As we journey to the cross in these next few weeks together, please know just how much God loves you. He wants to meet you right where you are at today. And when I blog again thats what we will talk about. Just how personal our God is!

Thank you for your continued prayers!
