{Its my Birthday: Shopping & the Beach, My Humble Mystery Friend?}

Dear Friend, I still don't know who you are. . . and although I snapped a picture
this gift card. . . the real gift was your kind words (that you so sneakily typed out).

Godly ~ I have felt lonely in a crowd, and to know The Man that hangs the moon every night loves me . . .someone like me. . .my hearts desire is to be "Godly" above all things. . .without God I am nothing.

pretty ~ well, I don't know about that. . .

a role model ~ much pressure, my friend, I feel honored you would say such a thing. . .

kind ~ there is never an excuse not to be kind.

caring ~ I love people. I care about what they care about.

compassionate ~ Hum, well, hum, yes. . . I am. But I am still trying to perfect "being bold" with a "dash of compassion". . . sometimes my passion gets in the way of my being compassionate.

optimistic ~ Yes, yes I am. Always.

thoughtful ~ My mind is ALWAYS churning. And typically about doing good. Now for the action part. . .

giving ~ I would give my right arm to anyone who needed it. . .

happy ~ I laugh. . . alot.

loving ~ I love. . .love. I think more "love" would help most all situations. . .

dependable ~ Funny, you say, I was voted "most dependable" in high school. I am kinda' like the dog that waits all day on the porch for his master.

patient ~ I have been accused of "having the patience of Job".

a friend ~ I love friends. I love to be a friend. I am thankful for people that call me their friend. I love you (whomever you are).

a leader ~ When I look in the mirror, I am not sure. . . when I am "on the job", I am not sure. . .Really, I think what makes a good "leader" is someone that is willing to follow. I am. Willing.

Sooooo, with all that said. Thank you.

Thank you very much, friend.
Your kindness was such a blessing to my heart.

Now its my turn. . .
You are

These verses depict you. . .
Romans 12:14-16 The Message
Bless your enemies; no cursing under your breath. Laugh with your happy friends when they're happy; share tears when they're down. Get along with each other; don't be stuck-up (love that!!). Make friends with nobodies; don't be the great somebody (love, love that).

A humble person, is all of the above, and way more.
Dear God,
Thank you for creating me.
Thank you for your grace and mercy.
Keep me strong.
Use me.
Talk to me. I am listening.
Thank you for giving me this life.
I give it all to you, God.
Good bye, 32.
Hello 33, Nice to meet you.
Please be good to me.
