Happy Birthday to me!

Today I turned 33. That is the same age that Jesus Christ was when he died on the cross for our sins.

So young with so much life left... yet he chose the nails!

What an impact he had on humanity in his 33 short years... yet he still lives on today!

What a mark he left on earth in 33 years!

Who, being in very nature God,
did not consider equality with God something to be grasped,
but made himself nothing,
taking the very nature of a servant,
being made in human likeness.
And being found in appearance as a man,
he humbled himself
and became obedient to death-
even death on a cross!
Therefore God exalted him to the highest place
and gave him the name that is above every name,
that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,
in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord,
to the glory of God the Father.

Philippians 2:6-11

All of that in just 33 years!

Hey Cheri,
thanks for your comment on my TSMSS. The wedding was so beautiful, it was a small outdoors wedding with immediate family only, and without the help of a good friend that allowed us to use all of her wedding stuff - I don't know what we would have done. I miss your posts, did you take some time off this summer? Hope you had a nice birthday. -love Laurie
