Fifty-One . . . . posts AND years!


Fifty one posts ago, I began an incredible journey through the land of blog. I have met some incredible people along the way. Never in my wildest imagination did I dream that I would actually be making friends on this journey. Friends who can make me laugh. Friends who can touch the deepest recesses of my being. Incredibly creative and talented friends. Friends I can call on for prayer when there is a special need. And although we may never meet face to face, we have formed a bond that I can take with me wherever my journey through life may lead me.
Fifty one years ago today, I began an incredible journey through life. One of the first friends I made along this journey was my "forever friend" Elaine. Although much younger (her birthday isn't until tomorrow!) Elaine and I formed a bond in the nursery at Butler County Memorial Hospital that has held fast all these years, and I have no doubt that it will continue to hold fast for the years to come.
In celebration of these two memorable occasions that ironically fell on the same day, I'd like to share my joy with you in the form of a give away! All you need to do is leave a comment and on Friday (April 18) I'll draw a name from the hat and announce the winner. You'll have until noon Friday to enter.
Thank you all for sharing this journey with me!
Blessings!
Liz

Precious post! Happy Birthday. An even though I'm not the "elaine" that God brought to you in Butler Co., he's brought us together in this season of our lives for a specific reason. I count it a joy and privilege to be yoked alongside you in the work of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

You are God's workmanship...created for his blessing and to be a blessing to others within his kingdom agenda.

Happy, happy birthday! This is a day of celebration.

Dear Liz -

Thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving your sweet comments. Yes, my dear mama would be honored to have you copy and save pictures of her laundry room for inspiration for your adopted house. I'll share more of her home soon. She and I truly wish you could come by for lunch, a good chat and lots of wonderful sharing and fellowship. Or is that lady-ship? ~Adrienne~
