Piles of Roses!

“A diplomat is a man who always remembers a woman’s birthday but never remembers her age.” Robert Frost

I enjoyed a wonderful birthday yesterday. Thank you for all the kind words you spoke over me and the love you sent me in the Spirit.

Get a load of these flowers! I was overjoyed when Fed Ex delivered 18 long-stemmed roses to my office. My boss sent them. I just cannot out give this generous southern gent. Now you know why I was so determined over the holidays finding just the right recipe to make him a homemade sweet potato pie, his favorite. He liked it, by the way! You guys helped me; the least I can do is share the flowers! I did, however, eat the enclosed box of Lady Godiva chocolates myself.

I’ve been so busy and haven’t visited as much online as I like to do. Please know I hold you and your prayer requests close to my heart.


  1. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Mary - Congratulations on your 29th birthday (again)!!

    Glad to see that you were honored for the wonderful person that you are - and the picture of you was just SO cute!

    Hope this is a year full of God's richest blessings!


  2. Happy Birthday, Friend! I'm so glad that your boss treated you so well! You certainly are a blessing to me...but I know you are a blessing to everyone who meets you.

  10. Lady Godiva chocolates? That sure perked my ears & my salivary glands. Do you suppose they'd be OK for breakfast (my next scheduled meal)?

    You're such a princess, Mary - - a rose among many. I am so glad your boss recognizes that, and is so generous.


  11. Happy B-day Miss Mary! You deserve so much more than flowers and chocolate - may the Lord grant you the desires of your faithful heart, as you are blessing to so many of us! Sending love!

  13. It's very rare to have those kind of "bosses" who always think of the employees more than themselves... God bless your boss.

    Happy Birthday sister Mary and you are so beautiful. I can feel the joy that comes from Him overflowing through you.

    Thank you for your prayers and I feel strong because I am not alone pleading to the One Who knows it all! To Him be the glory forever. Please pray for me sister Mary, tomorrow, an abrupt meeting with the Sergeant from Civil Liability who wants to ask about my work restrictions. May the Lord's wisdom guide me, His protection over me and praying for Him to be my Representative in that meeting. I am not afraid. "What can man do to me?" It's because of Jesus...Love you sister!

  14. Happy belated Birthday, Mary!

    The flowers are beautiful!! And I'm so glad you found a sweet potato pie recipe that was up to your boss' liking.....I've been so busy here that I haven't even given it a try yet!!! And now that I'm back on my diet I'm sure I'd be tempted to eat the whole thang!!!

    Hope you're having a wonderful day!!

    Hugs and Blessings!
