Birthday Blessings

The love of family and friends.

Our friend worked in the snow, this time last year, building the greenhouse before my sons arrived to help me finish. Another year is passing by as I stop to recall the love of God. Love witnessed in family and friends. I am a blessed man.

Grace is the reason I’m blessed. God loves me. As for me? How can I not follow Him? I have come to see that it is for my own good. No longer rules to be obeyed, but paths that lead to blessings.

God obviously has different circumstances for each of us, but in all and in any of them God’s Word is to be believed. Jesus truly is the way for us to follow. I know it’s difficult at first, but Jesus does not give up on us. I’m sure of that.

We are loved.

“For You, Lord, are good, and ready to forgive, And abundant in mercy to all who call upon You.” (Psalm 86:5 NASB)
