oh glorious day...



yes, it is that time of the year again...my burfday!
have you ever googled who else was born on the same day as you?
well i did and found some interesting people...
1443 - Pope Julius II, patron of Michelangelo, Bramante, Raphael
1584 - John Cotton, Puritan clergyman in Mass Bay colony
1711 - Barbara of Portugal, queen of Spain
1803 - Augustus Zerega diZerega, Martinique, ship owner

1973 - Tyra Banks, model/actress
1984 - Brooke Adams, American model

...the last two names are the only ones that I really recognized on the whole huge list! it was fun to look up though!

i don't want or need anything for my birthday but i do wish and hope for things. i wish and hope for more healing for ben...that at this point is all that i am thinking about. after that there will be more things to come. if i could trade all of my past birthday gifts or wishes in for his healing i would!

i ask that as you read this post that you say a prayer for ben...for complete healing, restoration, functionality, courage, strength. he needs it so bad! ben realizes where he is at and to him he is "stuck" and wants to get out. please on my birthday pray for him!

there is a giveaway coming that i wanted to do today but it is going to have to wait a bit until i can do the review and giveaway on the same day! to give you a sneak peek of what you can expect! it is going to be fun! i am in love with the item we have picked and i will have to let it go into the hands of a blessed winner! if you go over to Shabby Apple and see what they have going on...great finds...pretty items! be looking for a future post on this giveaway...maybe you could win yourself a birthday dress!!

happy birthday to me!

Happy Birthday to you, Katie. I recognized Pappy Boyington's name on the list. On my birthday is also Florence Henderson's birthday (Brady Bunch mom). It's fun to find others as well. One of my co-workers is same day as mine and I always say it was mine first since I was born first. HA,,,,he's the same age as my daughter so of course it's my bday first. HA! I wish you a wonderful day in the Lord and have been praying for Ben alot and will continue to do so. Hugs and enjoy your day!
