  1. Happy Birthday, our sweet OWG angel, Teresa! You are so special to everyone and God gave you so many talents -- especially the gift to make others laugh and to feel better about themselves. Weeping endureth but for a night, but joy cometh in the morning. It's been a long night but praying for that morning for you, my bestest friend! LOVE YOU DEARLY! <3

    1. NOELA, when I look back over my blessings that GOD has provided through my life, the gift of finding that little sister I always wanted was one of the best! I have to lol because the Lord KNOWS how much I love a good laugh, so He put you in the "land down under"!! One day Sissy I am believing we will get to meet in person, but I'm not sure Australia is ready for that quite yet!! :-)

  5. I am so happy I got to know Teresa through FB. I love her piano playing so much. So much, in fact, when I heard her playing 'Nothing's Too Big For God', I got the soundtrack and sang it at church! It would have been super if we could have sang it together. She's a pentecostal girl like me! Happy Birthday, Teresa!

  19. A birthday for this baby girl was August 24 and as the years roll one by one, the girl says give me more! I'll face each day with the help of God and we'll walk hand in hand and one day when these birthdays stop I'll join his heavenly band.

    Happy, Happy Birthday Sweet Lady!

I have always dreamed about visiting out west, maybe the Lord will work that out and I can surprise you one day!! (((HUGS))) My birthday was blessed beyond measure with all these sweet birthday blessings!

  21. TERESA!!!! Happy (belated) Birthday, my sweet friend! One of these days I am going to make it back to Columbia and we are going to rock the socks off Bojangles again :-) I had THE best time that day with you and 'Julian' ;) Next time, we will get Diana and Joshua in on it too! The city won't know what hit 'em! hehe....
    In all seriousness, I know the Lord is using you for His glory and that no amount of pain you go through is wasted. I know your beautiful voice rises in praise to Him even when those here on earth can't hear it. You are continually in my prayers and I wish you joy in the Lord! {{hugs}}

    1. ANNE, I bet that poor guy that was sitting close to us is probably still telling stories about those two crazy, loud women!! What a fun time we had, even ole "Julian" had a ball!

      I bet they have our pic on the door at Bojangles: WARNING ARMED WITH A LOUD MOUTH AND A SENSE OF HUMOR AND NOT AFRAID TO USE THEM!! lol Can't wait for a repeat!! Who knows maybe one day the boys and I will head up that way to visit both of my friends in VA, you and CARRIE! JOSHUA is a lot more conservative than his crazy mom and brother, so he might be hiding at another table!! :-)

      Thank you for the sweet birthday wishes! The LORD has been very good to me these past couple years despite all I've gone through. I was telling someone today that you have to walk through a lot of valleys before reaching the mountain tops. I have never one time thought I was going through this alone. HE is always letting me know how much HE loves me and is holding me close to HIS heart!

      As for the singing, YES, YES, YES, I love to sing to my LORD! One of my very favorite verses in the Bible is Zephaniah 3:17 "The Lord thy God in the midst of thee is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over thee with joy; he will rest in his love, he will joy over thee with singing." WOW!! When I found that, this ole Pentecostal girl (wink-wink) wanted to laugh and cry at the same time!! GOD loves ME enough to SING OVER ME??!! All I could picture was as a little girl climbing up in my daddy's lap and hearing him sing to me "You Are My Sunshine". What an amazing "DADDY-FATHER-GOD" we serve!!

      ((BIG OLE HUGS)) Right back to ya!!! :-)
