This has been the best week and happiest birthday I have had in a very long time! My guy took me away to the Carribbean with some of our best friends and all we did was enjoy each other. The simple pleasures of love and friendship is my blessing this week.
I'm missing church this morning because I'm out of the country; but I didn't miss my time alone with God. Morning prayers have been my ritual since I can remember. It is the quietest time of the day, my head is its most clear and my heart is its most open. Since it is the beginning of a new day...nothing has distracted me, angered me, annoyed me or made me forget just how blessed I am to be HIS child. My prayer today is simple: Thank you Lord for the blessing of good health and finally the good sense to maintain it. Thank you Lord for my family and the complete knowledge that they love me. Thank you Lord for my friends and the security that they have my back. Thank you Lord for bringing someone in my life who makes my heart beat faster, gets joy from my smile and whose arms are wide enough to hold me in good times and in bad. And thank you Lord for your son Jesus who is my constant friend and ultimate comforter. I am blessed beyond measure Father, and I thank you.
