Happy Birthday to Gail – – from all of your old and do I mean old class-mates  and that is even  – – if – – half of us are still around to lift a glass of something to cheer you on –  for many more years  – and hopefully – we can all remember the words – –  to the “Happy Birthday” song!

“MAY” – – -“May Almighty YAHWEH” – – know that … when I look at this PHOTO  of  “Alan… Alyssa… Jaime”… my terrific “Grand-Children” – – I have to give “THANKS”  from the bottom of my “HEART”  for the privilege…  to be  Grand-Mother  – – for the most wonderful of wonderful  “GIFTS”  – – that HE could have given to me.

Just have to take a moment – – for some thoughts to shift around in my brain – –  in the BIBLE – – there is a verse regarding  – “GIFTS and PRAYERS”…     ‘we’ receive not, because ‘we’ ask not.

In GRADE SCHOOL – – I remember praying for that which I thought I wanted – – and so strongly – – that…  I have even prayed Novenas and lit candles in hopes of receiving – – but nothing  seem to be  working  – –  that is… the way that I thought “it”  should. My “Prayer Petitions”  were on going for years – – no positive answer. As TIME  passed – – that  “old” request was no longer on  the request board – – situations changed – – and no longer of  a need.

Years and years later… there were lots of things that just seem…  to fall into place – – all good for me and everyone around me. Then…not having a very special  “WISH” to request some special intercession for – –  but a  good TIME to review LIFE…  and how things were going – –  “IT” – dawned on me.

A TIME came to just talk with a friend – – and I remember telling  this about PRAYERS.   We need to PRAY – – often and always – – not just for some special thing and or changes or even wishes that …  we think  – – that we need – – because “PRAYERS”  are really conversations  with… our CREATOR, the ONE that LOVES you and  me…  and wants to be with you  and me  in all that  we do.

So… after  – –  all those “PRAYERS” that I had said for years – – and with no answer – –  ‘they’ were like money in the ‘BANK of HEAVEN’  – – someday – – when really needed…  for the right ways of my LIFE to flow – – then  … the “BANK DOOR”  opens – -and plenty of good things just start happening – – like never before – –  looks like over the years – -I had built up a  very good credit  account  – – and with learning to take  “TIME to TALK”  – – with the ALMIGHTY – – and without a ‘laundry list’  – – but with a  most grateful and THANKFUL  HEART – –  –  NOW – –  for the  most wonderful of wonderful GIFTS… for me to have received – – are my   wonderful  “GRAND-CHILDREN”  – – especially chosen – – just for me…  “I am  NOW …  remembering always to give “THANKS” – – every  ‘twenty-four and seven’ – – for as long as I receive the breath of Life!”   DV

“A Special Day for An Extra-SPECIAL PERSON” “JAIME”

Sure hope,  that  – – everyone … has TODAY… circled in RED INK – – “It is “JAIME’s BIRTHDAY… TODAY” – –  and my rule…  is – –  to celebrate  for “SPECIAL” occasions… all week!

“Here we are – – the whole FAMILY… wishing DADDY and MOMMY a safe flying trip to FLORIDA – – looks like a “Thumbs-up DAY to FLY!”

That is  baby,  “JAIME” in the arms of DADDY – – along side of MOMMY – – Grandma with ALYSSA – – and big brother, ALAN is standing in  front of DADDY. 

This is a bigger and more “SUN-TAN”  “JAIME”  showing us what she can do… ready to get into that “OCEAN, BLUE”  – – on a trip to Fort Lauderdale, Florida

This is one of my  ‘favorite PHOTOS’ of  little  “JAIME” – –  she was not the type  to start to cry – – when it was TIME to be PHOTOGRAPH – – she will show the camera – – her best smiles – – and every PHOTO is “PITCHURE  PERFECT – – if…  I  – – do say so myself!

And… this next PHOTO… well – – what can I say – – “It is most  BEAUTIFUL…”  If only  I could have such a glamorous PHOTO of myself – – but I just never  receive those qualities for taking a real good PHOTO…  (some in LIFE… have IT – – and others… like me – – well… we only wish… a lot)

“For these beautiful  and wonderful “GIFTS” that I have receive from our ALMIGHTY CREATOR – –  – -I have to give THANKS – – since these GIFTS – – are the kinds of GIFTS – – that there is nothing that I can nor could I have done – – to receive – – only by the special GRACE of YAHWEH – – and I will be eternally grateful – – and that is forever and ever more!’

“Happy Birthday… JAIME – – and many more” – – and MAY the ALMIGHTY bless you … even mote… than  He has blessed me…AMEN   DV.
