30 years of beautiful things.

Today is my 30th birthday.

Above all else, I’m celebrating 30 years of God doing beautiful things.

So I thought that I’d let Gungor sing to us for my birthday.

I heart this song. Mucho.

[Gonna take a little bloggy break through the weekend. See y’all Monday!]

    Much to love and appreciate about you…your words, heart and Kingdom encouragement. I pray this is a year of Big Things for you because of Big Things for Him.

    (Thanks for the intro to Gungor…oh, my…I’m an instant fan!)

    Happy Birthday, Annie!

    In the small world department, I first heard of Michael Gungor when I was a student at Oral Roberts University. He came when his dad came to speak during chapel and played music…. and we were all stunned and then clapping wildly. πŸ™‚

    Lord,

    I can think of way more than 30 things to say about this beautiful woman named Annie Downs! You smiled extra big on the world when you graced us with her presence!

    May her 30th year be one of exciting discovery, flung-open doors she thought were nailed shut, and heart-changing opportunities to serve the God she adores so much.

    Bless her big for being such a huge blessing for the lot of us! I see You in her!
