37 PINS FOR MY 37th BIRTHDAY

37blog

IT’S MY DAY OF BIRTH, GUYS!!!!  I turn 37 today!  It’s going to be a fantastic year!  Since my 20’s, I’ve always felt like Papa has been telling me that 37 is going to be a special year, and I can’t wait to see what He has in store for me!  To celebrate the big 3-7, I am going to post 37 pins that say something about me!  At first, I thought this would be hard to find 37 things, but after I got going, I found that I was actually having to pick and choose to narrow it down!

After finding these pins that describe some of the many different parts of me, I have to say that I recommend everyone doing this on their birthday (maybe not pins, if you’re not on Pinterest, but just thinking of things that make you the amazing person you are!)  I promise it will make you realize just how special and unique God made you and why He is head over heels crazy about YOU!  So, without further ado, here are my 37 pins for my 37th birthday – here’s to my next 365 day journey around the sun!!! 🙂
