29... I am blessed

 We have had such a great time at the beach! I just thought it was so fun to be at the beach on my birthday! I have been spoiled rotten this year and had 3 trips to the beach. Believe me this is abnormal but very much welcomed!
I couldn't be more thankful to God for providing all of this fun time for our family. I am blessed.
 We have spent all day on the beach and hanging out with all of my mom and her side of my family. It has been wonderful.
My mom and Aunt Janice got my cupcakes and they were delish! Everyone enjoyed them!

I can't help but think of how much life has changed in a year and how much has happened this last year. God has been so faithful, even when I have not been and I am thankful. One of my favorite passages this past year has been Psalm 25:

In you, Lord my God,
    I put my trust.
I trust in you;
    do not let me be put to shame,
    nor let my enemies triumph over me.
No one who hopes in you
    will ever be put to shame,
but shame will come on those
    who try to deceive others.
Show me your ways, Lord,
    teach me your paths.
Guide me in your truth and teach me,
    for you are God my Savior,
    and my hope is in you all day long.
Remember, Lord, your great mercy and love,
    for they are from of old.
Do not remember the sins of my youth
    and my rebellious ways;
according to your love remember me,
    for you, Lord, are good.
Good and upright is the Lord;
    therefore he instructs sinners in his ways.
He guides the humble in what is right
    and teaches them his way.
10 All the ways of the Lord are loving and faithful
    toward those who keep the demands of his covenant.
11 For the sake of your name, Lord,
    forgive my iniquity, though it is great.
12 Who, then, are those who fear the Lord?
    He will instruct them in the ways they should choose.
13 They will spend their days in prosperity,
    and their descendants will inherit the land.
14 The Lord confides in those who fear him;
    he makes his covenant known to them.
15 My eyes are ever on the Lord,
    for only he will release my feet from the snare.
16 Turn to me and be gracious to me,
    for I am lonely and afflicted.
17 Relieve the troubles of my heart
    and free me from my anguish.
18 Look on my affliction and my distress
    and take away all my sins.
19 See how numerous are my enemies
    and how fiercely they hate me!
20 Guard my life and rescue me;
    do not let me be put to shame,
    for I take refuge in you.
21 May integrity and uprightness protect me,
    because my hope, Lord, is in you.
22 Deliver me, O God,
    from all my troubles!

I love this passage for too many reasons to count and too many personal reasons to list. I have no idea what I would do without the Lord and His word which gives and gives to me endlessly. 

Again, I am blessed....
