for another birthday!
Let’s face it – we’re never promised that next birthday (or that next day, for that matter). So today I’m thankful that I’ve made it to another birthday. It’s been a great day from being awakened (maybe a bit earlier than I’d hoped) by two little boys singing Happy Birthday to me, to a bit of Facetime with a sweet 4 year old, to cards and calls from my kids and sisters, to oh-so-many birthday wishes on Facebook. Gary was in rare form, and returned from an early morning errand run with flowers and chocolates and an offer to do the laundry so I could stay home and sip coffee.
Tonight we’re headed out for dinner with our SOWER friends and then maybe, if we old folks are too tired, we might even stay up for some wild and crazy game playing.
As we head towards our 70’s (Gary’s closer than I am!), every birthday brings more reasons to be thankful! For all of it’s ‘new every morning’ aches and pains, each year is still more abundantly filled with His ‘new every morning’ Faithfulness.
The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases;
his mercies never come to an end;
they are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness. Lamentations 3:22-23
