Birthday's and Eternity

22 months ago today
On a Beautiful Christmas Eve Morning
At 8:02 am
My seemingly perfect life
Took a dramatic turn
As I walked into my living room
To find my Mark
Had passed from this life into eternity

1 year ago today
I took the day off work
To try and figure out how to celebrate my birthday
For the first time in 30 years
Without my Mark

It turned out to be a horrific day
Of loneliness and extreme sadness
I even ended up at the human society
To adopt myself a puppy
I love that little 22 month old guy
Who just happened to be born the day
My Mark met Jesus face to face
But truthfully
I didn't want to end up with Another puppy today:)

On my Birthday
I went to work and was totally spoiled by the staff

They made to feel like a princess
And even wear a tiara

I work with the greatest staff/friends
And an employer who has walked by my side
These past 22 months

It was a terrific day
And instead of adopting a dog
I was selfish and purchased one of THESE

Tonight I was bless to have dinner
With my kiddos
I am So Blessed

Every day for the passed 22 months
I have missed my Mark terribly
Every day for the passed 22 months
I have longed for eternity

But today
I am grateful for today
For the here and now
For the Hope of eternity with Jesus
For the opportunity to share my Jesus with others
And for my new Epiphanie Bag

My Epiphanie Bag
Will be sold for a couple dollars at a garage sale

Others will meet Jesus face to face
Because of Today!!!!

Dear Blog Writer

Where did you go?
What happened to you?

What happened to you blog writer?
Did you begin to care more about what other's thought
Than about where your heart was leading you?

Did you get sidetracked by all those 'big' blogs
And the thought of money stole your passion?

What happended to your love of writing
Just because it's about who God created you to be?

What about your heart and the things
God has been speaking to you?

Where did you go blog writer?
I miss you!
I miss connecting with you!
Hearing your heart and
Seeing the photos of those special people in your life!

Blog writer,
You allowed someone's comments
To break your spirit
You stopped following your heart
And stopped living your passion!

Blog writer,
I'm asking you to 'come back'
Please let go of your hurt
Let God heal your heart

Blog writer,
Forgive the offender
Stop comparing
Start writing
Live Again!!!
