Blessings and Birthdays!


Greetings Blog Friends. As I am about to turn my calender to the month of March, I end February with my birthday today. Yes, nearly leap year for me, but born in time to count another year, every year!! Otherwise I might celebrate birthday number 14 or so. LOL~~oh what fun that might be, having a true birthday every 4 years!! I'm sure it would have been moved to the 28th or March 1st.

However, for me with every birthday I remain continually thankful for the many blessings I have been given from God and seen everyday along my journey. Thankful for my family, friends and all that I hold so dear. Blessings~~far too many to count.

Yesterday in church one of my favorite hymns was sung and one that I hold true for my own life. As we sang, I thought of all that is so important in my life. The simple little daily joys, along with the wonderful people that made the days coming up to this day, so special. The cards, calls, emails, lunches, dinners and gifts will always be treasured. Thank you so very much. You know who you are, and you know, I love you dearly and send my heartfelt thank you.
My gift for you all today, is to share a video of this precious song that I love so much.
Take a minute and enjoy the beautiful music and words that have meant so much to me.
Turn up your volume to listen. My playlist is temporarily empty so you may enjoy this video. May all your days be blessed.

These Alone are Enough (Dan Schutte)



Thank you for stopping by and always for your kind comments. I will be back in a day or two with pics to share of my finished kitchen remodel. Bella Rose Cucina!
Till then, have a wonderful last day of February.

Happy Happy Birthday, sweet Celeste. I listened to the beautiful hymn. It says it all, if he never gave me anything more, his grace and love is sufficient. I know God has truly been good to me! He has blessed me more than I have ever deserved.
Your faith Celeste shows through your beautiful personality. You demonstrate Gods love in every way. Happy Birthday dear one.

OH, Dearest Celeste! HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU! I did not know this day was so special to you. I had meant to always ask when your birthday was, but never remembered to do so.
This day is significant to me also, and I will tell you some time.
I love that song by Dan Schutte
also!
May the Lord send you everything that your heart desires today and always. Always remember what "gift" you are to so many of us!
Have a wonderful birthday, dear sister friend!

Happy Belated Birthday, Celeste!! Sorry, I missed the actual day - Hope you hade a TERRIFIC day!!!

I've been buried loading up my ArtFire Studio and starting a 25% off SALE. Almost all of my Jewelry pieces are listed - just about 11 more sets to go. Then...no more jewelry-making for a while. Can't afford it...since Tom was forced last week to RETIRE!!

~Blessings,
Jan

XOXOXOXOXO

Dear Celeste,

Belasted happy birthday to you! At least i'm not sending your congratulations on the the 14th lol. I'm glad you just made it in time for the end of February and not been born on the 29th! My uncle was born on the 29th of February and I remember it was always a bit weird when his birthday didn't 'exist'! He always celebrated on the 28th though LOL. I love the hymn, really goes through the spine! Thank you for sharing this blessing and hopefully you are having a wonderful new year of life ahead with health and prospherity!

Hugs

Of course it must be 'belated' instead of 'belasted' happy birthday! Sorry for my error in my former comment!

Well, I can tell you that I received the best gift of all just by being able to call you on your birthday! You are such a precious friend!! This song is so very sweet ~ I've never heard it before but I can guarantee you it is my new favorite. I love what it conveys and it gave me goosebumps.

Much Birthday Love and Always!
