Happy Saturday!! Happy Birthday!!


Happy Saturday!!  It’s my Birthday!  I love my birthday!!  Not JUST because of presents and fanfare, but it means I have yet to completely fulfill the purpose of my life!  There is still work for me to do, Love to give and Love to  receive.  My Birthday is a giant "Go"  card that says Happy New Year to you and the Best is yet to come!!  And of course presents are great!! 
 

One of the greatest Gifts I have been given is living in a land of liberty.  None of us has any choice about the  geography we are born into, and geography has an enormous influence in the quality of our lives.  It is a gift given to me by People who choose to move here from their homelands several generations ago,  People  who are nameless to me even though I carry their DNA and have passed it on to my offspring.  People that I had never known, with great courage took up arms and prevented this country from being consumed by other countries who did and do not believe in Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.  By People that endured persecution, rode long miles on horse back , built churches in the freezing New England and Baking Arizona.  And by People that worked and worked and worked to make their dreams come true, and provide for the possibility of their children’s dreams to come true.   It took a lot of people and a lot of work for this country to come to be and to stay the land of the free and the home of the brave.  But to  all those things, there is  a foundation:  it took the Love of God.  His Love for us.  And Because we Loved Him in return as a nation, He blessed us . 

I have lived my adult life knowing this:, In all things The lord goes before me, he makes every good thing possible and showers me with His Love, every day of my life.  So to celebrate my Birthday and the Nations' I have made several cards, This one is for a blog challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs!  I love the quality of these stamps, but more than anything they help my spread the wonderful love of God and His great Kindness to us.
 
The challenge is here http://ourdailybreaddesignsblog.blogspot.com/ enter and you may win a stamp! The Rubber Stamp Scripture is from ODB's scripture collection #11. This special card will be in the mail to someone very special to me.  Make your card, post it,  let someone how much you love them and appreciate them, especially if they are a Vet!!
Have a wonderful weekend, Stay safe!
