Purposely Created


No one can change the date~

your BIRTH date.

It is a once in a lifetime occurrence.

GOD picked it

because HE created you & I & everyone else.

Today we celebrate our little granddaughter

IVY LOU

who is 365 days old today.

When I look at her I am amazed by GOD'S CREATION.

Oh how HE combines two beings into one little being.

When I look into her eyes, I see my son at that age.

When I look at her expressions, I see my daughter-in-law.

When I look at her I see TIME.

Oh how quickly it ticks by

from Once Upon A Time when you & I & everyone else

took our first breath,

because GOD wished it so

on that day HE PURPOSE:Y chose for each one of us to be born.

Do you ever wonder "WHY ME"?

Why would GOD care enough about ME to even create ME?

And I believe GOD has tears in HIS EYES,

because why would HE create someone that HE didn't want to create?

It takes time to create anything~

from a meal, to a painting to building a house.

PURPOSEFUL CREATION.

INTENTIONAL. NOT BY CHANCE.

What if you & I & everyone else

celebrated ourself every morning

by thanking OUR CREATOR for CREATING us on that one day chosen just for us?

Because that is what LOVE DOES~

"LOVE never gives up. LOVE cares more for others than for self. LOVE doesn’t want what it doesn’t have. LOVE doesn’t strut, Doesn’t have a swelled head, Doesn’t force itself on others, Isn’t always “me first,” Doesn’t fly off the handle, Doesn’t keep score of the sins of others, Doesn’t revel when others grovel, Takes pleasure in the flowering of truth, Puts up with anything, Trusts GOD always, Always looks for the best, Never looks back, But keeps going to the end.

 LOVE never dies...

When I was an infant at my mother’s breast, I gurgled and cooed like any infant.

When I grew up, I left those infant ways for good"*

Thank YOU GOD for your LOVE that never dies~

"We don’t yet see things clearly. We’re squinting in a fog, peering through a mist.

But it won’t be long before the weather clears and the sun shines bright!

We’ll see it all then, see it all as clearly as GOD sees us, knowing HIM directly just as

HE knows us! But for right now, until that completeness,

we have three things to do to lead us toward that consummation:

TRUST steadily in GOD,

HOPE unswervingly,

LOVE extravagantly.

And the best of the three is LOVE" (*I Corinthians 13 MSG)

So HAPPY BIRTH~DAY

IVY LOU

& to all of you~

because where would you be if

GOD didn't CREATE you?

Thank YOU GOD for

"THE WAY I WAS MADE" (listen to the song below)
