today is my birthday

Today is my birthday, friends. And birthdays are super important to me. I love presents. I love handwritten cards. And I love spending time with people. So birthdays are a combination of a lot of things I really like. But today I get to celebrate that I came into the world in the first place. When my parents found out they were pregnant, they were encouraged by many to have an abortion. Both of my parents were still in college and you know that babies change everything. But my parents relentlessly pursued my life. And today I cry with sheer JOY because they chose me. I am a testimony of my parent's faithfulness to follow the Lord instead of following the world. I am a testimony of what God does in the lives of His people.

Rejoicing in tears today.
