AND A WONDERFUL DAY IT WAS
Through the marvels of the internet and the telephone, family and friends from all over the world sent me Happy Birthday wishes. Each wish carried precious memories of happy times we had spent together through the years. I was busy all day long and into the night acknowledging those wishes.
In the afternoon, some of my friends took me to a nice restaurant as their birthday present to me. We had a really good time. The food was very good, and the friendship was even better.
BLESSED AND THANKFUL
The Lord has been so good to me. He has blessed me to live a long life, to have a wonderful family, many friends, and to take the Gospel of Jesus to many countries in this world. The following Scripture says it perfectly. He has done all of these things for me, and I bless Him for all of it.
“Bless the Lord, O my soul: And all that is within me, bless His holy name! Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits: Who forgives all your iniquities, Who heals all your disease; Who redeems your life from destruction, Who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies, Who satisfies your mouth with good things, So that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.”Psalm 103:1-5
ON THE LIGHTER SIDE
A friend of mine says, “Birthdays are good things. They mean you have lived to see another year!
May you be blessed with as many birthdays as I have, and many more besides!
