I took yesterday off. I had to process my birthday. It was just so good. And not a man made good, it was man made normal and GOD GOOOOD. I felt so loved ,from the time I woke up, until the time I went to bed. The kids made me the greatest cards, the Butcher went out of his way to make sure that I didn’t have to lift a finger to do anything, Myrhh (aka Erin) drove in from Charlotte, to take me to lunch, and Freckles gave me an unexpected gift, Shanah made my birthday cake (which was delightful), my family came over and shared in my celebration…it was loud and busy and altogether wonderful.
The Lord also gave me a gift, he planted a seed in my heart for the future. A seed, that will change my story…thats just the way he is, I am thinking botox, and he is thinking fresh wind and rain clouds. I will keep you posted on this seed, it is young and tender, and I am nurturing it right now.
You took my heart, called lovely, and you broke it in two.
you broke it, until it looked like you.
you took my love, called lonely, and you stretched it
you stretched it until it reached…you.
