A birthday is a gift from God
To which none can compare
Because it proves above all else
His kind, unfailing care
This freefall from time’s tick-tock fount
For all its discontent
Sends us one special day to count
The blessings God has lent
Then we become most humbly glad
For this, our gift of days
And what a blessed year we had
To give God all the praise
Every day people all around the world celebrate this wonderful gift...a birthday!
If today is your special day I hope it is a truly blessed one.
Last night we attended our first ever 60th birthday party and Time it seems, for all of us is a slippery thing we can never quite grasp!
