II Chronicles 7:14

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

There is no time like the PRESENT time!!

Woohoo! I have to make this short because my hunky hubby is waiting for me to come to bed...BUT...I wanted to tell you all what a wonderful birthday I had. This has probably been one of my most special birthdays. SO MANY of my friends have called or texted or e-mailed me today to wish me happy birthday. I have gotten more gifts than I EVER expected and I got to spend the day with my hubby..just him and me...which was such a treat! I couldn't have asked for anything more. Here are a few pics of some of the b-day stuff I got. There is so much more though. My friends, Teya & Tori got me a gob of adorable scrapbook stuff, my grandma gave me $29, plus an awesome knife from Chicago Cutlery and some earrings and a bracelet. My aunt gave me some orange/papaya oil with little sticks (reeds) that you put in there and it smells your house up something wonderful. My mom and dad gave me a nightgown, a robe, some cute boxers and a beach towel. My kiddos gave me a candle that is "Farm Fresh Apples" scent! YuM! Matt's dad gave me $25. Matt's brother and his wife sent me $8.39 (for Romans 8:39). Matt's mom sent me $20 too!! Then on top of all that, my wonderful hubby gave me a gorgeous watch (that I picked out that was WAY too expensive...but I loved it), a bottle of perfume and an MP3 player! It felt like Christmas when I was opening up all my stuff! Wow! Even more than all the gifts though...was how special it made me feel that so many of you thought of me today. That's priceless! I am so blessed to have so many wonderful people in my life! I love you all!

This is the b-day card that my friend, Teya, made for me. Isn't it beautiful?
