Yes, today's my birthday and I'm loving it!*
Last evening after my spouse and I had celebrated the occasion in our most favorite restaurant, we laughed and gave thanks for the wonder of how fast the years fly by, how young we feel, how healthy we are, and how grateful we are to live with God's presence in our lives. There's not much way to significantly change any of these thanksgivings - rather they will perhaps change by themselves.
The years will unlikely not be slowing down for us, the youthful feelings may take on a burnished edge, the health, although we will continue to guard it as best we can, may falter now and then. And our gratefulness for the life we live together, along with our friends and family, will only grow as God's presence continues to be with us and manifest itself in outward signs of love, caring, and humility.
Yes, today's my birthday and I'm celebrating it!
