(To the tune of Happy Birthday)
Happy birthday to me
I've turned twenty-three
I feel so much older........
Today I very slowly, tired and grumpy rolled out of bed a whoppin' 23. I grumbled down the stairs with a nice glowing frown on my face and made myself some coffee, but not before I spilled the bowl of sugar all over the inside of the cupboard.
I look at my life and my walk, and it doesn't seem to match up with the number. I look at "23" and think, that's it? I'm such a child. It was only 3 years ago that I stepped out of teenagehood, that isn't that far back.
But I am blessed, beyond belief. God has given me more than I ever dreamed, I can not imagine where I would be if He hadn't plucked me out of the hole I was trapped in. He's been reminding me more and more everyday, that I have nothing to get here, it has only been by His grace and mercy. I forget so easily...
Finish up that last line in the song for me, and share in my birthday fun.
Be blessed today
