Happy Birthday to Me!

This is just a crazy post with some really random pictures of me! I've had such a WONDERFUL birthday today! I'm 38 today! It's weird, because I don't really feel like I'm in my late 30s. Whew! I can vividly remember my mom turning 30 and now I'm way past that! :) And something that is weird about being 38 is that Eric and I started dating when we were 19. So I've now spent half my life with Eric! WOW! I'm so thankful for a sweet and loving husband. Eric and Luke got me sweet (and funny) cards, bought me Bath & Body Works stuff and a Fossil watch. We went to Sushi Cafe for my birthday dinner! YUM!!!!

This crazy pic was taken at The Magic House in St. Louis a few years back! My hair was so long! And I'm wearing my Supermom shirt! Nice that my own friends made fun of me for wearing that! I don't care...I'm wearing it again this summer! FYI! You will see it again! Not everyone is a Supermom! But I am! Ha!

The girls at work were SO awesome today! They decorated my office with balloons and streamers! Then we had a very yummy lunch! All low-cal stuff because they know I'm so trying to lose some weight before summer! We had salad, fruit, low-fat chicken salad & crackers, Weight Watcher 2-point Brownies and Strawberry Shortcake. Man! I really appreciate all their thoughtfulness! God has really blessed my life with many friends!

Speaking of friends, I had TONS of friends (old & new) wish me a very happy birthday on Facebook today! So nice!

I'm really striving to walk more closely to the Lord this year! I need to be in His Word more so I can hear what He's trying to tell me! I want Luke to say that he had a godly mother and that does not happen without discipline!

I've had so many pleasant surprises today! I like to drag my birthday out and it even started last Saturday! I went out to dinner with my sister and friend, Kristie in the snow! Today, I had surprises from mom, Grandma, Kelly, Randie & Michael, Eric & Luke. I have no shortage of love ones and for that I'm so grateful!

Has anyone ever told you to look up your Birthday Proverb? You use your birthday month and that is the chapter you look up. The day of your birthday is the verse. So mine is Proverbs 3:2 and listen to this!!!! Proverbs 3:2 says, "For they (God's teachings and commands) will prolong your life many years and bring you prosperity". Isn't that amazing? Sometimes it doesn't work depending on your birthday and sometimes they are downright funny!

What is your Birthday Proverb?

uummm...I don't know about my birthday Proverb - Proverbs 6:4 Give no sleep to your eyes, Nor slumber to your eyelids.

I don't think I could handle not getting any sleep!!!

I am glad to hear you had a great birthday! I thought and prayed about you often yesterday! Love ya!

Happy Birthday Amy! My birthday proverb is:
When there were no depths I was brought forth, When there were no fountains abounding with water.

I looked up my kids', and Dawson's is about poverty and John Corbin's is about riches. I thought that was funny!

So shall your poverty come on you like a prowler, And your need like an armed man. (I hope this isn't true for him!)

John Corbin:
Riches do not profit in the day of wrath, But righteousness delivers from death. (I hope both my boys understand this when they grow up)

So glad you had a great birthday! My birthday Proverb 6:10 is: A little sleep, A little slumber, a little folding of the arms to rest...

I do fold my arms across my chest when I sleep! How funny!
