Dr. Rene’s Birthday!

Dr. Rene’s Birthday!

Good morning family and friends,
It is a beautiful morning! Another day was gifted to me by my Father. Today is my birthday 🥳 🎂! When I woke up I noticed the time 5:55 So…I rolled over… (That’s right I rolled over because school has not started yet! 😂) …and thought about the clock being lit up at 5:55.
I once read that another word for “miracle” is “sign” and a sign points to something. In this case, a “sign” points to the one behind the miracle!! ☺️
It is interesting to note that the # 5 often shows up in scripture around a miracle or blessing. Especially with Jesus! There were 5 loaves and two fish and He fed 5,000; at the pool of Bethesda there were 5 porches and A crippled man was healed. I love that Isaiah 41:10 tells us God upholds us with His righteous right hand! Your fingers and thumb add up to five.
I remember driving down I 65 with my friend Annita going to see the surgeon about my breast cancer diagnosis. Tasha Cobbs was singing through my speakers “There’s a miracle in this room with your name on it” we both were weeping and singing!!
In November, by God’s grace, I will be 5 years cancer-free!
I said all that, to share what was spoken to me this morning …
A gift of another birthday should be lived out in the fullness
of God’s grace 555…embrace God’s grace personally, walk in His grace and be gracious to others daily!
Much love to you all ❤️
