Happy Birthday, to Edie!

Anytime I've ever seen or heard from Edie, or anyone who knows her, it's only sweet, encouraging words. She is someone who is known for her precious heart, and her love for those around her. She uses her gifts and talents in a way that bless her family, and honor her God.

If I had just lost my entire house, and everything I owned in a huge fire, I don't think that I would be saying "Praise God for the gift that He has given me this Christmas..." What a blessing to be able to have her speaking, writing, and co-laboring along side us in this journey. Take time to go encourage this beautiful lady today. It's her birthday today, and we can't help but celebrate her life.

For todays giveaway, I'll be sending Edie one of my flourishes to make this birthday a bit more sweeter. I pray peace, hope, and joy be yours this year, Edie, more than any other before. Even in the midst of the impossible request, our God is the God of the impossible, and He will rise up to meet you here.
