Taking Pleasure

"You Say It's Your Birthday"

Happy Birthday!

This is the day the Lord has made I will rejoice and be glad in it.

I must admit I have had more pumpkin pies for my
birthday  with candles in it then I can count.
Because my birthday has either fallen on Thanksgiving day, 
or has been in the same week,
my whole life.

I have always had to pray my way through the
holidays.  I believe there are just some
things attached to birthdays, and holidays.

But praise God he has given us freedom,
and the ability to overcome.

It is not like something bad happened to me.
It is more like a false expectation, I put on it!

So, I rejoice knowing that I can walk in freedom
And enjoy this Birthday,
because of His grace.

Also, I have been learning to take pleasure
in the holidays.

Every year has been more of a release,
to be in Him.
And not allow my hold to a false
expectations to take control.

Being transparent has helped.
Let us not hold ourselves in high esteem,
but rather humble ourselves.
That He may exalt us in do time.

Blessings, Roxy
