He painted nature for us!

This is been a time of blessings and reflections for me lately.  I have turned 29, ( again) and as I get older I have begun to realize even more how important Faith, Family and Friends are to all of us! For part of my birthday celebration we traveled to Huntsville to visit Kyle and Ashley and go to Sam Houston's football game. The game was good because we won, but the biggest win was our time with family. Ashley's Mom and Dad joined us and we were touched by Kathy's survival story of beating cancer! We all agreed on the fact that prayer and the Lord gets us through the most difficult times! We all left uplifted and strengthened through our hugs, stories and great fellowship together.  On the way home as often we do,  Rusty and I have our best talks in the car! SO, again we marveled at what a wonderful son and daughter in law we have been blessed with and that the time spent with them gets us pumped up for the next week.  We also discussed that with the Love of the Lord in our hearts, our family experiences take on a "magical feeling" that others can not seem to understand unless they too walk in Faith!  The kids gave me a massage day for birthday and I am excited to go and relax and enjoy the gift of their love!   I heard from over 35 friends and family members wishing me well and sending me great notes of love and joy to store away for those days that I need to go back and look at the text and emails of well wishes and encouragements! I even got a Facebook message from Mitch Segler and was not sure how I knew him but, we decided we must somehow be related with the last name spelled the same.  Another thing I have learned over the years is that things like this are not luck or accidents, they are another gift from God and he brings people into our live that we need and we may not even know why.  I mean really getting a HAPY BIRTHDAY from a stranger is a very special thing! I love Birthdays so I celebrate mine for the entire month! HA! Try it it works great and you have that Happy Birthday feeling much longer! The next weekend we travelled to Wichita Falls to see Tres and Katherine and our sweet grand girls and I will share that with you next post! Be blessed and invite the Lord in for your next birthday celebration!    This scene card is a technique that I so enjoy and feel like a real artist when I design these. More facts on how later!
