Good Morning Beauties, I wanted to share a little bit of my birthday celebration. My daughter had planned a surprise party for me and I was not expecting it to be so wonderful. My mom and sister flew out from California and one of my best friends flew out from Texas so It was beyond my desires. I knew it was going to be a surprise, but had no idea what that was. Prior to that though, I kept dwelling on the fact that I was turning fifty and thinking where did the time ago? I have to admit I was little sad, but excited for my surprise. Now, because I love hair color I had to go get my hair colored with some pink high lites. I didn't want to look too wild, but enough to bring some life to my hair. As I was sitting down getting my hair colored by Sarah my hair dresser, I was sharing how I couldn't believe I was turning fifty and I was little sad, but she said something to me that made me realize that turning fifty was a blessing.
"Your wiser, you're settled and you know what you want in life." I have to say she was right. I was wise, because of all the things I have gone through in my life, the trials, the challenges, the blessings and what I learned through them. I am definitely settled in the sense that I need God in my life and I don't have to look for something to satisfy any longing that only God can fulfill. I also can say that I know what I want in my life and what I don't want in my life. I want God in my life and in every area of my life, I cant imagine my life without a relationship with God. I am at peace where I am in this season of my life. I have a lot to celebrate. My health, my marriage though not perfect, my family who loves me unconditionally, my beautiful daughter who loves me in spite of my weaknesses and failures. My relationship with Jesus and Abba Father though always wanting to go deeper and grow. I am so grateful for the good and hard seasons of my life, because without them I would not be the person I am today.
Fearfully and Wonderfully made.
