Happy birthday Cathy!!

Cathy said...

Thank you, Deby, It was a very nice day. You and your daughter are in my new prayer journal too. Hugs back ~

Thank you, sweet, Mimi, I added the PS after you visited earlier. :o)

Nancy, well my silly brother tired one earlier on the phone saying it was the IRS and I owed them $3000. But no other tricks. The funny thing was, I was born early, and nobody believed my Daddy that I was born. :o) Finally my mother's mother believed him. Thanks for your kind words.

Cathy said...

Thanks, Deb. :o)

I'm ashamed to admit I've not read Fanny Crosby's biography. I'll plan to do just that when we're on vacation. Excellent subject matter. Oh that I were more like her.

Jodi said...

Happy Birthday, Cathy! (April 1st is JR's Granddad's birthday.) I hope your day was special. :o)

Maxine said...

Oh, Cathy, so sorry I missed your birthday! I hope it was a happy day. I love Fanny Crosby and love her story. Her songs were special blessings for the people of God.

Cathy said...

Dear Jane, Jodi and Maxine,
Thank you for your sweet comments. I am still celebrating today with a friend. And it was a lovely day here.

Jane, I recently heard a narration on the radio about Fanny Crosby's life, and it was very interesting. I'm sure you will enjoy reading about her.

Cathy -
A belated Happy Birthday to you! I'm slow but I usually catch up with the celebration days.

Thank you for sharing about Fanny Crosby. I learned about her when I was a small child and I've always loved her music. It touches my heart in ways others don't. I think knowing her story through the years made it seem as if I could go on when things were hard. She is such a blessing to my blind friends in the care centers where I minister. They are encouraged that God can use them, too.

The song "Pass Me Not" always makes me a bit sad. I remember as a young girl thinking how terrible it would be if Jesus passed me by and I didn't respond. It was often sung at the end of services in the church where my father was the pastor and at times I knew there were some who were saying 'no' to God's voice. It grieved me then. It does now. Thank you for sharing it today.

I got your email. You are always an encouragement to me. I'm glad I could lift your heart a bit today.

Blessings to you, my friend. I will be back soon.
