My Birthday Gifts From God

Thank you so much for all of the birthday wishes.  I took the day off from work, so it was a really nice day of relaxing and catching up with family and friends.  And then I got two pretty cool birthday gifts from God.

First, I missed a call...and immediately recognized the phone number as that of the OB's office.  I'm not waiting on any results or anything...and yet my heart still started racing.  I called back, and the receptionist shared with me that the intended doctor who I was hoping to see could see me on Monday, March 1st!  I shared previously that when I had originally called to schedule an appointment with her, that I was told that she wasn't available until March 31st, so I had accepted an appointment with a different doctor on March 8th.  But God totally blessed me with an appointment with the intended doctor on March 1st--a week earlier than I was expecting!

Second, I feel like God blessed me with a beautiful gift during my bible study yesterday.  I've been reading Isaiah...which actually has some pretty heavy passages.  But yesterday's reading--Isaiah 25--is all about praise.  I especially loved Isaiah 25:1:
"O Lord, you are my God;
I will exalt you and praise your name,
for in perfect faithfulness
you have done marvelous things,
things planned long ago."
Yes, the fact that I'm currently pregnant sure makes it easier to recognize that God is doing marvelous things.  But I think that even in the weeks and months leading up to this pregnancy, I was starting to recognize that God truly is perfectly faithful--even in the midst of the losses--and that He truly is doing good things in my life, according to His plan.  I also wanted to throw it out there--what are some other verses that bring you hope and encouragement?

To sum it all up, I was just totally blessed with an all-around nice birthday.  I know that I'm dearly loved--by my husband, my family, my friends, and my God.  I pray that God continue to bless me in this year to come.


  1. I find hope and encouragement from:
    Matthew 6:19-21 and Jeremiah 29:11
    Both have siginificant meaning to me
