Birthday Verses


This is no ordinary day
This ‘moment-splash’ from heaven
This is the very special day
Victoria turns eleven

0~0~0~

Each birthday is mile-stone
Of heaven-gifted grace
It will not pass this way again
So stop, and celebrate

0~0~0~

I have learned a thing or two
Within my adult-skin
To celebrate, like children do
The moment/birthday I am in

O~O~O~

God splashed an ocean of sunbeams
Into the dark of this world
When he took His most tender heartstrings
And created earth’s best: little girls

O~O~O~

Today is a beautiful treasure
Oh, and I simply can’t wait
For today, my dear, is your birthday
A reason to celebrate

O~O~O~

God used his extra-special bits
Of wonderment and joy
He chose the best of heaven’s gifts
And made a little boy

O~O~O~

Today is extra-special
In each and every way
For an extra-special little girl/boy
Is having a birthday!

O~O~O~

Happy Birthday, my precious
Happy Birthday, my dear
Happy Birthday, I love you
Every day of the year

O~O~O~

I thank God that He made roses
And lovely skies so blue
But most of all I thank Him
For the special gift of you

Janet~

Yes, our 'baby' is eleven!

  2. I will pass on your wishes. thank-you. Isn't 11 a great age? They are still so 'unspoiled:)'

  4. Happy Birthday Victoria!!! How sweet that you took time to write special verses for her :) I took a nap with my little girl today... it was so special, she hardly lets me rock her to sleep anymore... then we both ended up going 'out like a light' :) Hope you all have fun celebrating your "special gift!"
