Today I turn 30. And today I celebrate.
I celebrate who I am. I celebrate who I was. I celebrate who I will become.
My 20’s were a whirlwind. A tornado of activities that life threw my way.
In my 20’s I….
By the saving grace of God, fought for my marriage and won it back.
Gave birth to 5 of the most amazing, unique, and breathtaking children to walk this earth.
Experienced the overwhelming sadness that miscarriage brings.
Saw my grandparents experience heart attacks, strokes, and cancer and rejoiced when they beat every one.
Found out how strong I truly can be when I lean not on my abilities, but rely solely on God and what He provides.
Became more aware of who I am and who God created me to be. I am confident, I am happy, I am blessed.
So, what will my 30’s bring? Only God knows. But I step into this new chapter of my life knowing that I have faced the storms and God was faithful and stood by my side. In the good and the bad, He was there.
Today I celebrate. I celebrate that God gave me life. He gave me a beautiful life. He gave me the opportunities and the freedom to bring beauty to other people’s lives. So today I celebrate. I celebrate God and who He is, what He’s done, and what He’s going to do.
Will you celebrate with me?
