I love birthdays so I really love today…it’s my birthday. Technically, it’s also my brother’s birthday since we are twins but what the heck…I’m claiming it for me this year.
I have never been a person who shied away from my age. I embrace it and I thank God for another year when so many friends didn’t get past their early years. This world holds illness, disease and just bad luck for so many of those we love and miss.
On my birthday, I remember the saints who have gone before me and I celebrate for them. They deserved so much more.
As for me, every day is essentially a birth-day. Each day we are reborn in Christ. Each day we should be joy-filled at the endless possibilities. Each day is another step closer to Jesus.
It’s time to celebrate.
