i'm not the type of person that wakes up happy and raring to go every morning, but for some reason i wake up on my birthdays feeling like a million bucks.
and i think all these years (24 of them...shhhh...dont tell anyone...) God has been trying to tell me something.
this morning i have no problem rolling my burdens from my back to His- no problem at all trusting that this day will be a good one- no problem at all feeling free
i just want to celebrate life and breath and being God's. simple.
but that's the key word there- celebrate. to SHOW enjoyment and cause others to feel the same enjoyment around you
and it hit me as i was walking to linneas just now that if his mercy's are new each morning and so are we as new creations...
then why cant i wake up more often content in His love and walking in His graces which are so near i can almost touch them, right this second.
our birthday is everyday to God, because He is making sure of it. a day of birth: of newness. innocence. joy. dependence on Him. and us being stoked and at rest because of Him.
the cool part about a real birthday though, is that the people around you do funny things like buy your breakfast and call you just because....
its gonna be a good day :)
