Word{ful} Wednesday: Happy Birthday Mama

Today my birth Mama celebrates another birthday.  
On behalf of her special day, I've written a little note with a blessing/prayer.

Dear Mama,  On this day {51 years ago!} you were given the breath of life.  God himself chose you to come into this world.  There was no guarantee that life would be easy, and if anything it has been severely difficult for you.  It's not too late to embrace Him, to accept His love in your heart, to be transformed by His great mercy.  Nothing you have done or have been through is great enough to separate you from His love.  He stands waiting to wrap His loving arms around you, washing you in the cleansing waters of His tears.  Tears that He has cried for every hurt that you have endured.  His love never fails.  This I know to be true.

Today, I pray for you a blessing of unshakable peace…no matter what you are facing today.  
Today, I pray for you a blessing of courage to boldly take the next step in front of you without wasting another moment looking back.
Today, I pray for you a blessing of health, and many more years to come.
Today, I pray you will find your way to the God who loves you, and receive Him fully.
Today, I pray that we would talk more than once a year.
