Happy Birthday to My Eldest!

Happy Birthday to my Eldest!

I would be remiss not to mention the birthday of my eldest son.  He was the little guy who first made me a Mommy.  He was the first human being to really teach me what “unconditional love” meant.  I thought I knew….then he was born.  So when the second one arrived, I was prepared and understood how that love multiplied and didn’t divide.

Being a mom is not the easiest job in the world…in fact, I personally think it is one of the most difficult.  We got through the necessary stages…newborn, baby, toddler, preschooler, young child, child, preteen, teen, post teen and now Adult.  I am still working on being a mother of the Adult stage. And I have made plenty of mistakes…

I am proud of my children.  But I often say that I cannot take the blame for their failures, anymore than I can take credit for their successes.   They are adults.  They are still a delight to me.So I give God the praise today for allowing me to learn so much from my first born.  I thank Him for trusting us enough to raise him.  And I say Happy Birthday…to my once little buddy.

“I prayed for this child, and the Lord has granted me what I asked of him.  So now I give him to the Lord. For his whole life he will be given over to the Lord.” 1 Samuel 1:27-28

Be blessed~

I love Jesus. If I say nothing else, that is enough. But for those curiosity seekers, I am a 60 year old former special education teacher, current part time CCM Radio Announcer and author... who is married to her high school sweetheart. We have been together for 44 years, married almost 41 of those years! We have raised two sons, who are now married, have jobs and mortgages. AND...we became grandparents to a beautiful baby girl in 2018!! We also have our furry son, a West Highland Terrier. My heart's desire is to encourage people in their daily life. I believe that the Father speaks to us all the time, sometimes I have been too busy to listen. Even during times of trials and troubles, which seem endless right now in 2020, HE is present and loves us unconditionally. Thanks for reading. ~Be Encouraged Today~

Thanks for stopping by! Would love to hear from you....
