Now that my 33rd birthday is just a few hours away, I am actually excited. Like REALLY excited. "What's changed?" you ask. Did I finally find my Prince Charming and start a meaningful relationship that will soon include wedded bliss? Nope, not at all. I've started a meaningful relationship with someone even more important: the Lord!
Now that I have God at the center of my life, I no longer cringe when someone mentions getting older. I know He has glorious plans for me, and those plans include sending Prince Charming at just the right time. While I used to worry with each passing year that my biological clock was ticking, I no longer pay attention to the statistics the come with "older" women having children. If it's in God's plan, I will defy all those statistics and have kids because I know children are truly a gift from above.
IT'S MY BIRTHDAY!! Tomorrow I will shout that from the rooftops! I look at it as one more day God put me on this earth to make a difference in the lives of others. I will pray as I do each morning that He will send me people who need to see His glory or experience His love. Each day holds the same suspense as opening presents because I have no idea what exciting plans God has in store for me. Isn't that one of the greatest joys in life?
Tomorrow I will bust out the sprinkles,
