Because of His crown, we can have ours.

“Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial, because when he has stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him.”

James 1:12


They say it's your Birthday!

In honor of my Birthday tomorrow, I thought  I'd share some of what I've learned during the past quarter of a century.  I can't believe I'm 25 (I do realize that's not old though) because I feel like I'm still 19! Hoping the next 25 go by slower, but I'm pretty sure that's wishful thinking!

25 Lessons for 25 Years

-I am beyond blessed.

-Laughter is the best medicine (and it does wonders for your ab muscles too!)
