This coming Friday, November 20, will be my birthday. I will be 46 years old, praise God. I know so many people that do not want others to know how old they are, especially women. But, I am happy to share my age. I am happy for everyday that God blesses me with. You see, I was an attempted abortion that did not work. My parents thought I was gone, until one night, several months after they thought I had died, my momma felt me kicking inside of her. Talk about being totally surprised. My momma had taken an entire bottle of pills that were given to her by a doctor, they were suppose to cause her to lose me. She started bleeding very heavily, and she truly thought she had succeeded at getting rid of me. But, my God had other plans. (Jeremiah 29:11) Has my life been burden free? No, I was born with several birth defects, and they affected my life greatly. I have had to deal with several emotional, as well as physical problems, and continue to. But, that is quite alright with me, we all have our burdens to bear. I praise God for the life, and the love He has blessed me with. I will never be able to repay Him for the kindnesses He has shown to me, but I will tell everyone I can of the day back in November 1963, when He saved my life. Because He lives, I live. Thank You Lord, for all the birthdays You have gifted me with. I am forever grateful.
