On my last birthday, two of my little great grands sang the happy birthday song to me. They also helped choose the birthday flowers that happily reside in pots on my patio. When I think about how blessed I am to enjoy knowing not only my grandchildren but also my great grandchildren, I feel overwhelmed and thank God for this special privilege. Life is a gift, a blessing that mustn’t be taken for granted. I’m not a Pollyanna, life isn’t always easy. It doesn’t always turn out as you think it should, but in every circumstance I’ve found God is always right there with me. And that includes even when I make a wrong decision. Isn’t it amazing how merciful our Father in heaven is, that he continually forgives and rescues us even before we recognize and acknowledge our sins to him.
