A Charming Birthday

Over the last two months several of you have joined thousands of others in prayer for Joanne. Some of you had never heard of her before January 11, but you prayed. I believe with all my heart God's heart has been moved by the prayers of his people on behalf of Joanne. DON'T STOP!!!!

Today is Joanne's Birthday!!! SO....

At the request (and wonderful idea!) of her friend Janna, it's Charm Bracelet day!!

The first time I met Joanne was in San Antonio. She was wearing her beautiful silver charm bracelet. It reminded me so much of my Grandmother's. Full of charms representing different parts of life and special memories made along the way.

Not too long ago, my grandmother gave me her silver charm bracelet. It is full of history of our family and her life.



Joanne's is MUCH "charmier" than mine. (It has more charms.) I know that each one is special and holds a special memory. It is a beautiful reflection of her journey so far. If that piece of jewelery could talk I bet it could tell some great stories!

Reminds me of Joanne's life. She is a daughter, sister, wife, mother, friend. But first of all, a daughter of the Most High. She is crazy about her Savior. THAT is what I most admire about her.

Joanne,

Happy Birthday! I am SO very honored to call you friend. I smile everytime I pray for you because you are physical evidence that our God is the healer. He DOES hear and answer. Your life is drawing many to his side. I am waiting with great anticipation at the work he has planned for you.

Happy, Happy Birthday!!!

Love,
Steph.

Thank you so much for participating, Steph. I love that you photographed yours on a pink background. It added some "pop" to the collage. That's actually why yours is right at the top!

I need to drag out my charm bracelet from when i was a girl. I have not thought about it in years. I think I still have it.

I'm doing a Giveaway with a Twist over at The Point. Stop by and check it out if you have time.
