On this day April 5, 1952 at 11a.m. and weighing 7lb.15oz. I Patricia Louise Musser Andrews entered the world. My parents...William and Joyce (Carter) Musser sent out announcements proudly proclaiming my arrival. My maternal Great Grandma...Essie Allsbrooks tucked it away. And many years later as she was entering her nineties, it was found among her belongings and given to my Mama, who then passed it on to me.
As I pull the Announcement from inside an envelope, now yellowing from age. Postmarked April 8, 1952 at 9a.m. and wearing a 2 cent stamp. I their firstborn child, am once again reminded just how much joy my birth brought to my Mama and Daddy.
Just as certain I am of the joy it brought my Heavenly Father...my Maker. The one who painted my eyes blue-green and gave me Great Aunt Ruby's fine boned hands.
My God, who knew me in the womb and has carried me everyday of my life...through every circumstance. He is faithful.
Today I am thankful for another year. Blessed to have been placed in the family that God chose just for me. Mostly, I am blessed to be part of the Family of God!
One day as I enter His gates...I will have Eternal Life. I pray that He is pleased with me and count me worthy.
I have carried you since you were born; I have taken care of you from birth. Even when your hair has turned gray, I will take care of you. I made you and I will take care of you.
