Birthday Blessings

1 John 3:11 For this is the gospel message that you have heard from the beginning:that we should love one another,

Today is a very dear friend’s birthday. She had a lot to do with my learning to love myself and others. We haven’t seen each other in a very long time, nor spoken on the phone but I can still feel her presence and hear her voice as if we were together. She embodies to me the kind of love God desires to have for each other. How did she do this? She was always accepting of me through any mood or action I did. She never pushed me away, never made me feel like an inconvenience. She just loved me as a sister. So often we push God away. We think we’re not good enough for Him to love us and we wallow in our sin and worthlessness. We also push others away. We need to learn not to be pushers but to be givers and receivers. Our question is which are we, pushers or givers and receivers”. Please, readers, join me in a prayer blessing for this beautiful sister. Happy Birthday, Cinda.
