Happy Birthday to me!
Thank you Lord for a wonderful productive last year. Now I praise You in advance for my upcoming successful year. I expect 2016 to be the best year of my life with Your direction. Direct my path so that my life brings You glory, honor, and praise. Show me how I can help others find the same freedom You gave to me.
I am now 63 years old. Wow! Who’d believe God would deliver an old woman of 90+ pounds. I’m amazed that God would do this for me. After all, I do think His hands are full with all else going on in this world. But yet, my God takes the time to heal me, an old woman with a failure complex and no hope of achieving her dreams. Now I’ve learned, “With God all things are possible”, even healing an old woman from a lifetime (41 years) of food addiction.
Hubby and I choose to celebrate my birthday early. So last night he carried me out for a candlelight dinner at an elegant restaurant. I love that man.
The food was awesome. Ya’ll know I’ll always be a foodie, even though God has delivered me from gluttony.
Below is a picture of what I carried home for another meal, more pleasure. When you only eat half a meal, you get to enjoy the other half again later. Twice the enjoyment. Two meals for the price of one. Yea!
We had a wonderful time. Hubby also ordered dessert and coffee for later. He said, “It’s your birthday, order whatever you want.” So I ordered a teeny dessert and had one bite of his. This man has been sharing his food with me since high school, 1968. A way to win a foodie’s heart is offer her food. LOL! It was wonderful to sit, enjoy a meal and conversation with the love of my life. He is a gift from God to me.
Below is two birthday cards I received from friends, but God spoke to my heart His words of love through both of them.
My life verse, Thank you Lord for leading me and helping me. Thank you for delivering me from myself. I love you, Deborah
