Happy Birthday JennyPenny

Today is your 26th birthday.  “Where did 26 years go?” It seems like yesterday the nurse placed you in my arms and I fell in love with you.  I knew you would be my last so, I purposed in my heart to cherish each moment, each milestone and achievement.  I have so many memories of you as a child that I hold near and dear to my heart, your enthusiasm for every new day, your huge smile, your legs pumping so fast on your little bicycle to keep up with the rest of the family.  How everytime our eye’s met you would smile, filling my heart with so much joy!

The memories I love most, Of course, are the million’s of hugs and “I love you, Mommy’s”.  Each one of those is forever etched into my heart, – they are the most special because they mean you feel loved and cared for.

I am so very proud of you Jenni and so very thankful to God for the blessing you are to me and to all those who know and love you.  The world is a better place because of you.

I love you so my daughter,
And I never cease to pray
That God will guard and keep you safe
Within His love each day.
May you be guided by His word
In all, you say and do
For all the pride of life for me
Is centered, dear daughter…
In you.

Enjoy every year that God gives you for with every passing year come more precious moments and memories and that is what life is all about!

You are this beautiful little soul.  From you, I have learned patience and I have experienced unbridled joy and such amazing happiness.  Just the thought of you makes me smile even to this day.

Happy, Happy Birthday Baby Girl…..wishing you a million more days that reflect the many blessings and possibilities you see.  Praying that God Would Protect, and guide you in Mighty Ways to His Glory.

I love you with all my heart. ❤

Love you, Mom

Author: Cheryl Downum

My name is Cheryl Downum, 2015 was a difficult year for me. I chose to separate from my husband because of his unrepentant abusive behavior and a year later we divorced. I moved from Atascadero ca to the Temecula Valley in Socal. As I’ve walked this journey, I’ve found myself growing closer to Jesus. My heart is now infused with empathy for others that find themselves in this place. And, God has given me a story, a message of hope to share. A message birthed in my brokenness that brought forth a sweet-surrendered dependence on God’s unconditional acceptance and love. The reason I am writing this blog is; I have found in my life that the Lord often uses our deepest pain as the launching pad to our deepest calling. My desire is to encourage His children to seek a deeper relationship with our Lord Jesus Christ. I hope that as you read my blog, you will feel inspired and encouraged. Thank you for visiting! God Bless! The Lord has opened a door for me in ministry with women who have been raped/sexually assault or abused by their spouse.  I have become a fulltime Advocate for women with a national organization.  For more information on this exciting chapter in my life, please visit my Healing Heart Blog https://thehealingheartblog.wordpress.com/ I am a Survivor and an Advocate, I am passionate about raising awareness about Rape/Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence.
