Sweeter Each Day

Today is a special day. This is the anniversary of the day God brought me into the world. A bit early, much to the surprise of everyone. This year I celebrate a milestone and it seems that the years have gone by so fast. The Lord has walked with me each step of the way. He's never failed me! He won't leave me -He won't forsake me now. His mercies are new every morning and He is faithful! True to His Word. My loving Father holds me close in His arms. No matter what the path ahead may bring.

Since I started for the Kingdom,
Since my life He controls,
Since I gave my heart to Jesus,
The longer I serve Him,
The sweeter He grows.

The longer I serve Him, the sweeter He grows,
The more that I love Him, more love He bestows;
Each day is like heaven, my heart overflows,
The longer I serve Him, the sweeter He grows.

Ev'ry need He is supplying,
Plenteous grace He bestows;
Ev'ry day my way gets brighter,
The longer I serve Him,
The sweeter He grows.

"Not one of all the good promises the LORD your God gave you has failed.
Every promise has been fulfilled; not one has failed."
Joshua 23:14

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD,
"Plans to prosper you and not to harm you,
Plans to give you hope and a future."
Jeremiah 29:11

  15. Hi Birthday Girl! I'm sorry I'm late with birthday wishes. We are in Washington, D.C. and worn out from walking today. I'm just relaxing a little checking on my favorite blogs. I hadn't planned to do any comments, but when I saw I missed your birthday, I just had to comment!

    I knew you were special - my sweet little grandson, Caden, was also born on Aug 3rd! Two years ago. He was also early, 20 days early!

    I hope you had a wonderful day, looks like you received some great gifts, especially the yellow table!! I want it!!!!

    Happy Belated Birthday!


    We leave tomorrow - going to NY.


I am grateful that you stopped by to visit me. Your kind and gracious comments are appreciated and treasured.
