It’s my birthday and I’ll rejoice if I want to! Praise God, Hallelujah! The melody to the song “It’s My Party and I’ll cry if I want to” literally popped into my mind as I began to type this birthday blog.
However, contrary to the woe expressed in the song, I’m bubbling with jubilant expressions of gratitude in my spirit. I choose JOY!
The flow of this content adds to my gratefulness because it confirms God’s inherent good and faithfulness in showing up when I settle down to write, not knowing where I’m going until He directs me in what to say. Follow along with me as my birthday blog unfolds…
So, Sunday, Nov. 2 is my birthday and I get the privilege and pleasure of participating in corporate fellowship, prayer, praise and worship at church, plus the bonus of taking communion; and then, I get to sell my books after service. Yaaaay God! I also express gratitude for a restful week, working from bed, being still and quiet; and for the invitation I received to be interviewed for the online newsletter of Inner Vision Institute for Spiritual Development(IVISD), where I was a former student. I feel extremely honored for the opportunity to share my “Living a Vocal, Valued and Victorious Life” book series with that community because my healing, growth, and transformation journey and subsequent success came through the teachings, awareness, and inner-work that began in 2006 with the IVISD program.
