Well, I made it! Today is my birthday! Another year has come and gone! I guess I’m too old to die young! That’s pretty awesome! I know that some people have a problem with birthdays, but birthdays mean that we’re one day closer to eternity. How cool is that?
There was a point in time when I had girls to raise and so many plans for my life that I didn’t want to die any time soon. Now, don’t get me wrong, I’m enjoying each and every day that the Lord has blessed me with here on earth, but I’ve come to the point that I’ve had such a good life, eternity doesn’t seem so scary – it sounds wonderful! I’ve been blessed with a great family – I knew the love of parents, siblings, and extended family during my childhood, and God gave me such a good man to share my life with here on earth! We’ve been blessed to be married for 38 years so far! My girls are my pride and joy, and that grandson is the “apple of my eye!” I’ve been blessed with many dear friends. I’ve been able to travel here in America, as well as foreign lands such as England, Greece, Israel, Egypt, Russia, and cruise the Caribbean. I’ve seen wonderous sights, such as Mt. Rushmore, the Statue of Liberty, the Parthenon and those amazing pyramids of Giza.
The Lord made this world so wonderful for us, and He did it in SIX DAYS! Think of how beautiful heaven is going to be. In John 14:1-4, Jesus said, “Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; what where I am, there ye may be also. And whither I go, ye know, and the way ye know.” Jesus is working on my mansion! I hope yours is next to mine! God Bless, Courtney
