3: Happy birthday Marilyn! As you celebrate this very special year of your life, know just how much you are loved and appreciated. “I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources, God will give you mighty inner strength through his Holy Spirit. And I pray that Christ will be more and more at home in your heart as you trust in him. May your roots go down deep into the soil of God’s marvelous love. And may you have the power to understand, how long, how high and how deep his love for you really is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is so great you will never fully understand it. Then you will be filled with the fullness of life and power that comes from God. Now glory be to God! By his mighty power at work within you, he is able to accomplish infinitely more than we would ever dare to ask or hope.” (Ephesians 3: 16-20) Lots of love and very best wishes for a special birthday and great year ahead. Lita

5: Thank you so much, dear Marilyn, for your kind-hearted warmth and tenderness. You have always been a wonderful example of gentleness and peace, and you have influenced many people because of it. You are generous with your love, your compassion is remarkable, and you are faithful in serving the Lord with joy. You have welcomed many people into your heart, and have done so with patience and empathy. Thank you so much for your thoughtful kindness. May you continue to experience the Lord's faithfulness and great grace each day, Marilyn. May you find yourself in his presence when you think you're lost, may you discover his wisdom when you think you know nothing, and may you hear him say "well done, good and faithful servant" when you think you have failed. Be steadfast, immovable, always excelling in the work of the Lord, because you know that in the Lord your labor is not in vain. (1 Cor. 15.58) With many blessings to you on your birthday and throughout this new year of life, Marilyn, Jo Fahringer

6: 2 Corinthians 4:16-18 Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal. Happy Birthday Marilyn! Here's to another year of daily renewal and unmitigating focus on the unseen! May God bless you, as you have been a blessing to so many others. With love, Bob, Iris, Jaimie, and Kellie

7: Marilyn, You are God's masterpiece. He has created you anew in Christ Jesus, so you can do the good things he planned for you long ago. And I am certain that God who began the good work within you, will continue His work until it is finally finished when Christ Jesus returns. It's been said, 50-is the new 30, and you have so much more to do, so many more people to influence and inspire. Your quiet influence and your living example of what it means to be a Christian woman has encouraged me to be the woman I am today. Happy Birthday! Love Lani | Happy birthday Marilyn, welcome to the 50 and over club. Thanks for being a great sister, and a better friend. Time and distance have kept us apart, but I will always feel close to my little sister. Love, Dave. | Welcome to our world! Happy 50th Marilyn :) The rest of your days will be the best of your days! You have been such a great role model for young women, thank you for your faithfulness to serve.

8: Marilyn, I first met you at Solid Rock Ministries in 2005, it was brief as I was a ywamer heading out on outreach. When my boyfriend at the time said he moved into a rental at Pastor Brian and Marilyn's house, I knew that I knew of you, but not well. Somehow, in a brief meeting, I new that you were a easy person to like. Over the years since then, I had run into you here and there; SRM, the store and Facebook, etc, You always remained this woman that I knew I could easily talk to and be open with. Since I've moved into "the community" here, attached to your house, I find that all my previous notions about you were so correct, but I had no idea at how much you were a caring and loving person who was ready to receive anyone and your character shines without any walls or hindrances. You have such a "cool" way about you and I love it. I have learned from you a few things already, how to be straightforward and honest, but gentle and loving at the same time. You have a special skill built into your heart that so many others have to work hard at. I appreciate your talents, your neighborly love and the Jesus I see in you. If there is a woman in this world that walks in the character of Jesus, it is you. Thank you for being my friend, my neighbor and my fellow believer who I can continue to learn from. Happy birthday to you!! Hau'oli la hanau! Leah (and Marley too)

9: Marilyn is one of the sweetest most down to earth persons I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. You can never tell when she's having an off day. She's always smiling and will always greet you with a hug. She's more hawaiian with her greetings than some of the Hawaiians I know. lol. She is an awesome mother and a great wife. (Who else can keep someone like Pastor Brian in check:) Marilyn you are a blessing to us all and I want to say thank you and that I hope you have a wonderful 50th birthday with many more to come. Psalm 121:7-8 The LORD will keep you from all harm— he will watch over your life; the LORD will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore. | Dear Marilyn, I am so blessed to have you as a dear friend like you. You are such a pure hearted person with such passion for the Lord and others. You shine with His Love in the way that you live. I love to know that I can feel comfortable enough to talk and pray with you about anything and you dont look at me in the worlds eyes but with the spirit within you. God has used you and I know he will continue to use you to fulfill his plan! We love you and wish you a wonderful and blessed birthday with all my love and my family's love!!! *hugs and kisses*** "Lord I come to you and lift my dear friend Marilyn shiroma up today on this special day of her life, the very day you breathed life into her very body, her birthday... Lord I ask you to continue to give her amazing health, physcial, mental, and spiritual blessings and strength. As well as material blessings!!! Lord you know her every need and desire and I pray that you will give the best gift that she deserves, after all she is your daughter :), I thank you Lord for her life, and for guiding her and molding her into the person she is today! A wonderful wife, a lovable mom, and a trustworthy friend and that's just to name a few... Protect her all the days of her life and continue to show her your ways everyday. Love you Lord! In Jesus mighty name Amen!"

10: As I thought about you Marilyn, I wanted to tell you first how much I have enjoyed getting to know you. I liked how you always included my daughters in the things you were doing at your house in Holualoa, especially the garden. I know that they enjoyed doing that. One of the beautiful character qualities (there are many) that comes to mind when I think of you is 'Genuiness'. You are the real deal, authentic in ever way and that is wonderful and refreshing to be around. Another character quality that I see in you is 'Generosity'. You are a very generous person, not only of your possessions but of your self, time and knowledge. Thank you! I love your walk with Jesus and your reflection of His love is very easy to see in your life, friendship and love. Thank you Marilyn for being you!! For giving so much of yourself in everything you do. Thank you for your friendship and your love for my family and I. I love you Marilyn! Kimberly : )

12: Happy Birthday “Marilyn-The Kings Beloved Bride”, WOWIts your “Big 50th” birthday and how wonderful and fabulous it is that we get to CELEBRATE LIFE WITH YOU!!! I have soo much that I want to share and say, but, I’ll do my best to keep it “short & sweet.” When I think of you, this is what I see. BEAUTY-WISDOM-GRACE-TRUTH-COMPASSION-TENACIOIUS FAITH- LIGHT (just like that scene in Chronicles of Narnia, where there’s a light lamp post shining ever soo brightly in the middle of a snowy forestyup, that’s you! No matter what season it is or what’s happening with the weather, there you are “shining ever so brightly!!!) I see you as ENOURAGER-MOTHER-RESTORER-HEALER-CONFIDANT-FAITHFUL FRIEND, COMPANION, and PRAYER WARRIOR (one who speaks what God speaks in ABSOLUTE trust & obedience because he/she is rooted in love!) You have been more than that lamp/light post for me and my family Marilyn, and we cannot thank you enough. Truly you are PROOF of God’s Extravagant love for us, and we give God all the Glory, Honor and Praises! We bless you on this very special day of Celebrating your birth, and your continued journey of Falling in Love with our King each and every day! We bless you today as God grants you His spirit of wisdom and revelation, in the deep and intimate knowledge of knowing Him, by having the eyes of your heart continually flooded with light so that you can know and understand the hope to which He has called you, and how rich is His glorious inheritance in the saints. And that you can know and understand what is the immeasurable and unlimited and surpassing greatness of His power in and for us who believe, as demonstrated in the working of His mighty strength, which He exerted in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His own right hand in the heavenly places. (Ephesians 1:17-20) (phew.that’s a fully loaded mouth full, and yet it is said with such confidence & knowledge that God’s very Word is Spirit and Life, Life to our very flesh and bones!) So, just like you Marilyn-The Kings Beloved Bride, you are FULLY LOADED with ALL that JESUS IS, YOU ARE JESUS IN ACTION!!! So, it’s only appropriate that we BLESS you today Marilyn in the FULLNESS of HIS EXTRAVAGANT LOVE!!! Thank you for embracing us with the Love & Mercy of Jesus ChristYou have been that significant difference in our lives that have led us to FALL IN LOVE WITH JESUS EVERYDAY Celebrating You.Willy & Hannah’bella

14: Happy 50th Birthday, Marilyn! We wish you a wonderful birthday and an especially blessed year! Thanks for being the best example of a Proverbs 31 woman that we can think of. You inspire so many people with the way you live your life. We love you for all you do for others and just for who you are! Proverbs 31: 15 She gets up while it is still night; she provides food for her family. 17 She sets about her work vigorously; her arms are strong for her tasks. 20 She opens her arms to the poor and extends her hands to the needy. 23 Her husband is respected at the city gate, where he takes his seat among the elders of the land. 25 She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come. 26 She speaks with wisdom, and faithful instruction is on her tongue. 27 She watches over the affairs of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness. 28 Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her: 29 “Many women do noble things, but you surpass them all.” 30 Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised. Happy Birthday! Brad, Julie and C.J.

15: Marilyn- You are such an inspiration to me. Your willingness to do what needs to be done to get your needs accomplished no matter what. Ex: living in smaller quarters to get caught up on bills. That's such self sacrifice. I love watching you walk your walk with God. I thought I was the only one who had struggled along the way, but you talk about them and how your working through them in a way that's real and that I can understand. I love your willingness to pray for people at the drop of a hat! That in it's self is amazing to me, as I always feel so awkward praying. Im grateful to walk through life with you. Thank you for you open ear, warm heart, and never ending kindness. Happy birthday my friend. May you be abundantly blessed throughout the upcoming year! Love, Tara Roney.

You are a precious sister, committed mom and wife and I am so blessed to know you! Happy Birthday! Aloha ~ Christine Sveiven | Marilyn --I remember meeting you at MOPS 10 years ago. You are a wonderful friend. Always consistent, always faithful and loyal. Always thinking of others and not yourself. I am so glad that we are friends:) May God bless you on this special birthday and grant you the desires of your heart, with much love, and with great joy from India, Margie xx | Marilyn, I am so happy that we are friends even after all these years.

20: HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MARILYN, May the Lord go before you to make your road smooth and straight as you reach for the goal He has set for you. Thank you for being a loviing and caring . daughter-in-law | Marilyn, since I first met you in August 1987, I've known you to be one who loves the the Lord Jesus with all your heart. You have a special way of encouraging the saints and bringing others together in fellowship. Thank you for all your kindness and thoughtfulness over the decades. My 17 years in Hawaii were made more special because of you and Brian. Blessings, Pilgrim Phil.

21: Dear Marls, You've been a sister in the Lord to me for many years. One of your greatest qualities which I have valued is your ability to be honest and frank, and unafraid to speak the truth in love. Without this quality, we cannot assess where we really are, and therefore can't move forward in growth. Another of your great qualities is your love and passion for the Lord. This has encouraged me through the years, especially when I've need help or advice. Which brings me to the next quality I appreciate in you . . . your committed friendship, even through the busyness of our lives and though we live on the same island but seldom see each other - I know I can call or email you and ask for prayer, advice or counsel, and you'd be there for me. You have been so many times in the past, and I am so grateful for you. | I also admire your hospitality, how you are always so quick to have us over at your house, at the drop of a hat, and do your best to make us feel comfortable without being overbearing. For all of these things (and many more), I am extremely grateful God created you and allowed our paths to cross and go in the same direction at different times in our lives - Inter Varsity, Yucatan, MGMC, Big Island, Green Beret, etc | My life is greatly enriched because of you. I am so honored to call you my friend. May God richly bless you at this wonderful milestone in life! You are still so young and full of life! I am sure God has awesome things in store for you and look forward to sharing more fun times together. I love you lots and lots, Suzy"

22: Marilyn A big hug from your chilean sister. God bless you all. I have great remembers when I lived at your home. Happy bithdays Maria Eliana

23: Through the years... | ...but the best is yet to come!

You are an amazing example of "living" the Word. Hope you had an awesome day. | Happy Happy Birthday dear woman of God! We love you and miss you and pray that God will amaze you in this new year with a download of awesome blessings from His awesome abundance.
