Birthday wishes from God

It never ceases to amaze me how much God cares for me. I kinda expect (sorry...that's really selfish) my friends and family to care about my birthday and send me well-wishes, but God of the universe? Well...I mean, He is eternal, what is a birthday to Him? Evidently something special. Because I swear to you He sent me birthday wishes today and I can't help but share.

First...my day has been absolutely amazing. My hubby and babies have come shining through and truly have Blessed me today. But then started God's gift. The mail came early-a miracle in itself-and I got an envelope with a book inside from my mother-in-law. Then she called as I was reading the back cover thinking to myself, "I dunno about this..." The book is called Heaven is for Real and you can find it here. She said that she thought it was a great read and that there was a GOOD note inside for me. I thought it was something she wrote. No way could she have orchestrated it.

I don't want to give the book away, but you can venture a guess by the title, it's about a 4-year-old boy who nearly died and then later told his loved ones about his experience in heaven with God and Christ...and with his unborn little sister. (By the way...she was lost before he was born and his parents had never told him about her) He talks about her and how, even though she had died in her mother's womb at only 2 months gestation, she was very much a little girl who loved her family and was waiting for them to come home. It goes into such great comforting detail that I can't possibly outline it here, but I cried several times. I also read the book in 2 hours and as I type my husband is in the livingroom devouring it. Any hesitation I had is absolutely washed away. READ IT!!!

It addressed the mother's healing over this revelation and the healing of others who had miscarried and learned the little boy's story. But if that wasn't enough...and it was...I then checked my email and this was in my inbox: Then he said to the man, "Stretch out your hand." He stretched it out, and it was restored, as sound as the other.--Matthew 12:13

I hope that speaks, because I don't have any other words for it. PRAISE HIM WHO BRINGS COMFORT AND RESTORATION!!!
