Birthday Blessings Bestowed

Me on my 76th birthday

Special days happen

Because people take time

To make them so


I enjoyed a very special birthday today because so many people took the time to make it so for me. My family, friends, neighbors and acquaintances all shared their wishes in some way to make the day great, and for that I am feeling especially grateful and blessed!

  1. Love it! My pastor and his wife are celebrating their 35th anniversary today. Because we can’t get together with them, their oldest daughter and her husband asked some of the congregation to put together short videos to bring greetings. It was also to be a surprise. I think it worked well. They both thanked me for my greetings and prayers today. Not sure why, but they watched them last night. I don’t know how many were sent, but I know there were a few. I guess we just have to get innovative in these times.
