A Happy Birthday!


My verse for my birthday this year was Psalm 142:7b

Then the righteous will gather about me

because of your goodness to me.

I chose the verse in the morning, and in the evening this wonderful group of people truly did gather about me!  These are my online classmates from Drexel.  We had gotten to know one another quite well, but met for the first time at graduation.

It was wonderful to march in graduation together and celebrate this milestone together.

Marching in my MLIS graduation from Drexel indeed felt like a sign and symbol of God’s goodness to me these past few years.

Yes, I’m still hoping and praying and standing that my marriage will be restored.  But in the meantime, God is pouring out blessings on me.  I still find it amazing that I was able to complete my degree and find a wonderful job that required the degree within two months after finishing.

God is good, and life is good.  And having wonderful people gathered about, rejoicing with me, was a wonderful way to celebrate that.

Definitely a happy birthday!


  1. Hi, Sondy,
    I just wanted to wish you a happy birthday and congratulate you and your classmates! I wish you all the very best and am proud to have been a part of your beginnings at Drexel. If you ever need anything, please let me know (The same goes to your classmates!). 🙂

    Susanne 🙂

  2. Happy Birthday and Congratulations.

    I, too continue to hope, pray and stand by my marriage for Rick to heal so our healthy
    marriage will be restored.

    I see nothing bad or evil about you still hoping and praying and standing that your marriage will be restored. How much worse, bad, or evil if you do the opposite?
