No one could have possibly made this occur BUT God! Therefore, this first tribute is to my heavenly Father.
Thank you so much Father for caring & loving me enough to make this night happen for me! Truly, this was a BIRTHday celebration, a moment in time that I will NEVER forget! I speak not of a physical birthday from when I was born from my mother. I speak of a birth of a beginning of newness and spiritual change for me.
A room filled with family, friends, even old foes, people from my past & present who caused me some kind of hurt or disappointment and likewise, whom I hurt. It was a reminder of all the pains yet so much love to bring balance. I had a chance to tell everyone just how I felt. They all just listened. I could hear the thoughts and feel the feelings of many. They said to themselves, if only everyone in the world could get this chance.
Oh, the tears I cried were many but these were tears of pure joy! This could have been a time of pride but inwardly I felt only wholesome humility. I would have never known the words to speak at such an event as this but my faithful Father put into my mouth the words I should speak. I was very overwhelmed.
After everything had ended, I partook of a supreme peace and refreshing. I felt so strengthened, so empowered and so understanding of the purpose for the tribute. The tribute was to bring about a healing and deliverance that I may not have received otherwise.
My final words to everyone were this: “Even though you all are here for me, I hope that this time was also a time of reflection, of hope and of freedom for you!”
There was no way I could have put every detail in this blog for there were so many facets and this blog is quite long already.
For all of you who were there, thank you, I WILL NEVER FORGET!
