My Anniversary!

Hey Everybody!

I'm sure ya'll are thinking that this is the anniversary that I celebrate yearly with my husband, but it's not!!

I'm excited to say that this is the TWENTIETH anniversary of my Christianity!!!! And I am so very excited and happy to share this with you!

LOL I bet some of you think I'm going to begin my sermon now, but I'm not! I will be more than happy to share my glorious life with Christ to any and all who would like to hear....and it's a very exciting story, sorry to say not a very pretty story to tell before my salvation, but one that sometimes needs to be told!

There are many of you that know that I am a Christian and there are some that don't, not because I'm ashamed of my Savior in any way, it doesn't come up in each blog post, know what I mean LOL! FYI, email me anytime if you would like for me to pray for/with you (lots of my friends alread know this, those who don't do now ).

I would like to take this opportunity to tell those of you who often comment about and wonder how I have such an upbeat outlook on life even though I live in constant pain (often downright excruciating pain) and always will...it's simple, I have Peace and Joy that comes from Jesus, it's as easy as that! I know that for eternity I will be pain free!

AND, on top of all of that, I'm (IMHO) the most blessed girl in the world...I have a WONDERFUL husband (of whom I met in church) and family and the best group of friends a girl could ask for and, I've met many of you right here in cyberspace and I'm so thankful for each and every one of you! Ya know, friends are Gifts from God and I'm blessed with many!
Oh, and I mustn't forget to say, most importantly.... (many times over), Jesus, for what you have done for me, without You I would be so lost!

This is wonderful! Congratulations, and thank you for sharing! I am coming up on my 8th anniversary of becoming a Christian, and I am so thankful that the Lord had better plans for me than I did!

I'm also glad I found your blog! I'm a fellow knitter as well, and I found you via Knitting Pattern Central.

God Bless!

Becka!!

Happy Anniversary!

I am not feeling very eloquent this evening, so I'm having a hard time putting what I want to say into words. But here goes:

There are times when I wish I could gather in all the people I know and have them feel the peace I get from my relationship with God.

Trying to simply *tell* them about it is like trying to describe the Grand Canyon to someone who has never been there without using any adjectives!

I'm so glad to have gotten to know you, and I appreciate your outspoken faith!! You are an inspiration! :hug:
