Happy Birthday Ginger!

Happy Birthday, Ginger!  January 29, 1973
Ain't she sweet?

Ain't she sweet?

Pooky

Pooky

You were small enough to fit in Mom and Dad’s hands when you made your debut on January 29, 1973.  Your birth may have been premature according to medical standards, but you were right on time with God’s plan.  Though you were small in size, I’m certain that you had some mighty lungs.  And He was faithful to keep you.
I wonder how old you were when we realized you were endowed with the gift of gab?
Probably not when you were in Pre-school taking pictures and the photographer asked you if you were married.  You had your lip poked out in that picture.  I wish I had a copy of that one to post.  And the one of you sitting on top of the kitchen table. 
You were small, but somewhere along the line that belly poked out.  Maybe that’s why we started calling you Pooky.
Now you’re 5’2″ with eyes of blue.
Small in stature, mighty in Christ.
Throughout the years I’ve seen you grow amazingly.  I’ve watched you overcome so many obstacles emotionally as well as physically.  You’ve fought many battles.  Your love for the Word of God is evident as you determine to overcome.
I’m certain those places that you left behind will be the platform for your ministry.  They are now.  Every tear cried, every pain, every sorrow, every fear.  As they’ve turned into your victories, they are becoming your message.
I love that you listen.  You really listen.  That’s a rare and priceless gift.  You have been encourager and exhorter to me.  You are one of few people I allow to speak into my life. 
Blogging would not be as fun or fulfilling without you.  I truly believe God has opened doors through blogging.  And I’m looking forward to what’s ahead.
Keep on keeping on!
And Ginger, GET OUT OF THE BOAT!
Happy 36th Birthday!
May this be your best year yet!
I LOVE YOU, my sister, my friend!
The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD has anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound;
To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn;
To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified.
Isaiah 61:1-3
