29...again.

Because...

My iTunes: Beautiful Flower by India.Arie

"Oh yes, you shaped me first inside, then out; you formed me in my mother's womb. I thank you, God-you're breathtaking! Body and soul, I am marvelously made! I worship in adoration-what a creation! You know me inside and out, you know every bone in my body; you know exactly how I was made, bit by bit, how I was sculpted from nothing into something. Like an open book, you watched me grow from conception to birth; all the stages of my life were spread out before you, the days of my life are prepared before I'd even lived one day."

Psalm 139:13


Another year already! I can't believe I am 29...AGAIN. Ssshhh...let's keep this between you and me and please don't tell a soul...this happens to be the sixth year in a row that I have turned 29!

To celebrate, I decided to post some flowers for myself.

Happy Birthday me.

Anna,

Happy Birthday! You still look 23 even though your 29. I hope you have had a great day. We miss you guys and can't wait to see you again. Sounds like your having fun with Keitt and Peggy. BTW - you are doing a great job with the photo's.

Shaun has a new camara that she is learning to use. Canon EOS30D. She is starting to do a lot of good pictures.

Thank you for being a special person.

Happy Birthday, Anna! But you're too young to put the clock on hold already. Jack Benny waited until he was 39 to stop counting.

Oh yeah, beautiful flower photo!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, ANNA!

I was talking to your dad about you this morning, and he didn't tell me you had a birthday coming up. Hope it is a good one!

kenju said...

Anna, thanks for the visit. I don't why it didn't occur to me that your mom needs to be included on our get-togethers. I will mention it to her, although she may be working when we have our meetings.

Happy Birthday, Anna!

I sometimes hear "India Arie" on the smooth Jazz station down here that I listen to sometimes.

Psalm 139 is a great one. I think I first really came to know about it by reading some stuff by Michael W. Smith. he quoted it and I really connected with those passages.

Nice image by the way.

Flowers? For me? Why that's so nice! And they're tulips, my favorite! Oh, wait, that's right it's not all about me--especially today. It's all about YOU: Princess to the King of Kings. Youngest Daughter. Little Sister. Wife to my better half. Mother to three. Doting Aunt. Thankful Friend. Amateur Photographer. Homeschooler. Lover of Laughter. Music fan. World Traveller. Decorator. Cook with a specialty in take-out. Mac addicted. Diet Coke drinker. Margarita mix master. Avid scrapbooker. Movie junkie. Internet surfer.

Hope your day is as wonderful as you are. Missing you. Love, Tim

Hi, Anna,
When I turned 30, I was living in Haiti with no prospects for marriage or anything like that. My field director said to me, "Beverly, the best ten years of a woman's life are between 29 and 30." Well, I passed that by long ago.
Happy anniversary of your 29th birthday. I love the Scripture. It is just what I need for today for a friend who is hurting.

Cris said...

Happy Birthday!!! You actually look 29, so we won't tell anyone! Love that psalm, have a wonderful day!

Alice said...

Happy Birthday, Anna. Don't you know, 30 is the new 20? ; )

Anna said...

What I am hoping is that 35 is the new 25! :)

JAM said...

Beautiful photo of the tulips. And happy birthday to you. After a while, it becomes quite a chore to remember which 29th birthday you've had. I think it's some age related memory disorder.

utenzi said...

Those flowers are beautiful, Anna. And happy birthday again. 29 is quite easy to believe

Moksha Gren said...

Happy Birthday, Anna, from one June baby to another. If we count age by the whimsy of your photography...you don't look a day over 22. And since that's all we really see of you in this little online community...that's all that counts.

Great flowers by the way!

eurorebs said...

Ugh....I missed your birthday!

It looks like you had plenty of people chime in with happy wishes so that's a good thing.

You've given your readers plenty of "gifts" over the months with your beautiful photography and take on the world...hope you received some wonderful gifts yourself.

Happy belated birthday my friend.
