I had another birthday, on the 25th I turned 30 something...
Birthdays are sort of a big deal I think, even when you do start to get old. At least they are for me anyways. Although there is not nearly the excitement and anticipation that surrounds them as when you are little, they bring about a time of reflection. Reflection over the past year and even over the life you have lived as well. It brings about hopes and dreams and "to do's" yet to be fulfilled.
I know that most days I will make mistakes. I will get impatient with my kids, I will be ungrateful for this or that, I will be selfish. I will have to seek His forgiveness every day. And its only because of what Jesus did on the cross for me that I will be able to go to Him every day and accept His gift. My sin He took upon Himself so that I might have eternal life in Him. Wow. I have alot to think about this year!
But God demonstrates His own love for us in this:While we were still sinners, Christ died for us." Romans 5:8
