Celebration of Life

Today is a celebration of my life. I am sixty one years old today. There was a time, not too long ago, I thought I would never see this day. I was seriously ill, in a very threatening way. Death was almost a certainty. God, however, in his infinite wisdom, had other ideas for me. What he is saving me for, is a question I ask Him everyday.

Throughout my life, I have wanted to be a writer. When I became ill I told myself if I lived long enough, I would give it a try. I started writing about two months ago and the words just keep pouring out. I also promised God if I made it through the past few years I would write about the miracle that is my life, and his never ending Grace. I am relatively new in my Christianity, having surrendered my life completely and thoroughly only three years ago.

My faith in God is something I could write about endlessly. His forgiveness and Grace, which I definitely do not deserve, is a topic I write about the most. Before I came to know Jesus in my heart and soul, I was one of the most angry and resentful people you would ever know. So if you see repetition in my writings, now you know why.

I think I will become a good writer. I may never get the periods and commas right, but God doesnít care as long as I find the right words to express his Glory. I donít have the Bible verses down pat yet. but I will. I am working on those things now, and also the right manuscript to tell people who might not know Jesus what it means to be a sinner forgiven. My life has been one Iím not proud of, but I know Jesus knew all long I would eventually come to him. He was waiting patiently for his lost sheep to find her way home.

So today, on my sixty first birthday, I want no presents other than the ones I have already received, the love and forgiveness of Jesus Christ. He has given me life so far, and he has given it abundantly. Today, I celebrate that life.


John 3:16 ďFor God so loved the world, Her gave his only begotten Son, so that whosoever should believeth in him would not perish, but have eternal life.Ē


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
