Milestones

Today, I am celebrating 46 years on this earth. Some have been good, some have been great but others...well, haven't been so great. However, they all make-up my life, they have molded me into who I am today. With every trial would eventually come victory and with every victory my faith grew. God has taken the ugly times of my life and created a stronger person. These are some of the major events and milestones in my life...many of them have already been blogged about.

  • Being born into a wonderful home with loving, nurturing Christian parents
  • A blessed childhood...full of laughter, family trips and so much more
  • The death of "Granny Wood"
  • The death of "Granddaddy"
  • High School Graduation
  • 1st Marriage...3 weeks after graduation
  • Many troubled years of marriage
  • 1st Pregnancy...Brandon...the joy out of a terrible marriage
  • Divorce
  • 4 years of Single Parenting
  • Death of My Wonderful Father
  • Met A Wonderful Man Named Roger
  • 2nd and Final Marriage
  • Blending 2 Families Into One
  • Rough and Rocky Patches With Blending Families

    Jennifer, thanks for stopping by my blog. Otherwise I might not have been introduced to yours. I knew the minute I read the "Through the Storms of Life" header that we are kindred spirits.

    Hope your birthday is better than you could hope for or imagine!

    Gratefully,

    Beth

  3. I missed your birthday, but hope you had a good one. Loved your side show.
    God is faithful, isn't He? Always being with us in our good times as well as the bad. What would we do without Him?
    Happy Belated Birthday and may you have a blessed
    year.
    Blessings, Carolyn

Thank you for stopping by today and sharing your heart felt thoughts with me. As we ride "Through the Storms of Life" together, chances are...your situation is different than mine. However, we serve the same awesome God, King of Kings who is in complete control and it all belongs to Him anyway...He wants to give you the very best. Be encouraged my friend, God loves you!

Thank you again for taking the time to visit me at "Through the Storms of Life".
