A birthday is a day for celebration!
'Twas on this day God's very special plan
Was turned into a tiny new creation--
Then, with a breath from God, your life began.
A birthday should be spent in calm reflection
On rivers crossed and battles fought and won;
We feel again the sweetness of the triumph,
Remembering His grace when day is done.
A birthday is for sweet anticipation;
For though we do not know what lies ahead,
We feel no fear at trusting our tomorrows
To Him Who to this day has safely led.
A birthday should renew our dedication
Of body, heart, and soul, of mind and will;
For a birthday is an annual reminder
That He Who made us walks beside us still.
May you have a blessed birthday!
I will praise Thee, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are Thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well. My substance was not hid from Thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in Thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them. How precious also are Thy thoughts unto me, O God! How great is the sum of them! If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand: when I awake, I am still with Thee. Psalm 139:14-18.
