A Hymn of Love to The One Who Has Chosen Me

Everything I am and all I hope to be is, and should be rooted in God’s gracious choosing of me. My work, my hope, my faith, my family, my friends, my birthday… are results of God’s electing, amazing grace. I enjoyed this day just thinking of this truth, boasting in Him only. And today turned out to be a truly happy birthday! 🎉👍🏼 So I end this day singing hymns of love to Him who has called me and chose me before the world began. ✨ 😌✨

And you are all God’s grace to me as well, and I want to thank you for all the happy birthday greetings. All of you who texted, called and left messages, and pm’d me – I hope you get to read this as well. Thank you for loving me and for rejoicing with me. It so means a lot! 😘👍🏼 See you again next year! 😜😁

Lastly, thanking the Lord for husband Gino, who took me to a very early breakfast to Blueberry Hill. And I woke up to a beautiful fragrant bouquet of roses before we headed out and ran in the early morning rain. We need to buy a new umbrella 🌂😇. I laughed a lot while we were running, and forced some smiles at his not-so-funny jokes 😳. He is one of God’s biggest grace to me. I tear up thanking the Lord for him. 😌
