Today is not only the last day of January, it’s my birthday. You’re invited to my party! I’ve got cake, ice cream, presents, and some inspiration about getting older! Join me for some smiles.
“Old people should not eat health food.
They need all the preservatives they can get!”
“As a graduate of Zsa Zsa Gabor
School of Mathematics,
I honestly do not know how old I am.”
Why did Mattel choose “curvy” Barbie to hit the shelves today, on my birthday?
Sookie designed a birthday card depicting me in blue skies, with the sun shining. I look like I’m singing and the grass is very green, just sayin’.
Leave it to kids to boost our self esteem. Hope my granddaughter will always think I’m budafull.
The family party filled my love tank to full. They chose my favorite: white cake with white frosting! I know, b.o.r.i.n.g. It’s what I like; correct me if I’m wrong, but I think white on white is still what’s really in right now.
My creative girlfriend, Kay, sent me a new mouse pad she designed. Isn’t it cute?
I received a great gift: a makeover at the salon! Before I drove there, I distinctly heard in my spirit that I should stop apologizing for my hair. Christine is the stylist that was chosen for me because my family dared me to change and she is the creative one. The girl is a kick. I told her she can do anything she wants with my hair except color it purple or pink. “Leave it to the professionals,” I always say. I like it! There are different colors in my hair, mostly warm browns and light highlights. When I got home, Tom hated the way she styled it and told me if I wear it like that, he will shave his head. Our men are funny that way; they like us the way we are. That’s it.
I don’t think I’m the only one who wishes I had better hair, or more talent, and so on! I think I should say what God says about me. I think you should too!
Here’s where we get into the party groove. As we should! We’ve been wonderfully and fearfully made!
Let’s Make Some Declarations for a Spiritual Makeover Today!
You made me; you created me. Now give me the sense to follow your commands. Psalm 119:73
Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it. You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion, as I was woven together in the dark of the womb. Psalm 139:14,15
How precious are your thoughts about me, O God. They cannot be numbered. I can’t even count them; they outnumber the grains of sand! And when I wake up, you are still with me! Psalm 139:17,18
We know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love. Romans 5:5
I feel better about myself already; how about you? God loves us. He thinks we’re all budafull!
