My life has been so richly blessed I can hardly believe it. I have a husband who loves me and whom I adore. He’s been an incredible gift; one that I have never deserved. I have three kids whom I love more than I ever thought possible and they love me back. Again, more than I deserve.
It wasn’t always this way. Life was once very dark for me. I was living a life filled with compulsions that almost took away everything that God had planned for me. But with God’s grace and mercy, (grace being what God gives that we don’t deserve and mercy being what God doesn’t give that we do deserve), he lovingly offered redemption.
There it is, the reason I want to have more birthdays. Each year brings with it a new promise of purpose. Not just any purpose, but God’s purpose for my life.
Yes, yesterday was a great day. It was a day of celebration of a life—my life—that is filled with purpose. It wasn’t wrapped with pretty paper and a bow, but it was the best gift ever!
And the chocolate cake was yummy!
I would love to hear your story of redemption.
