A Birthday Poem

(birthday girl front left)

Food, (Mrs. Mitchell's) flowers and fellowship.
Can't think of a better way to spend a day with mom and sisters
celebrating Carolyn's birthday (4th sister to turn 50)!

A birthday, what a special gift
From He who grants its rite
While closing in the sacred rift
When faith will turn to sight

A birthday, what a perfect time
To humbly celebrate
God’s mercies that tumble and climb
Over hope’s weathered wait/gate

A birthday to cherish with love
Is a perfect chance too
To thank God for the beauty of
The lovely gift of you

Every good and perfect gift is from above,
 coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, 
who does not change like shifting shadows
James 1:17
