A Special Day

Today's my birthday!
What a thrill
Yep, I'm going down the hill!

Gaining speed
and pounds and wrinkles
I might outlive Rip VanWinkle

Helping widows
more and more
Because God has so much in store

From deepest pain
Rich love awakes
priceless treasures God will make

So think of me
and chocolate cake
and then go out and celebrate!

" . . . shine among them like stars in the sky . . ."
Philippians 2:15 (NIV 2010)
PS A friend just sent me this --hope you enjoy it with me!


  1. Wishing for you a day overloaded with joy.
    Thanks for what you are doing for the widows,me included.

  2. You make it all worthwhile, Ruth!
    God's blessings on you too.

  3. Ferree,

    I wish you the best birthday and a blessed year ahead.

    Your Godly ministry has helped me so much. I read your WCP blog every day. Not only have you encouraged me through the Holy Spirit to look for the strength to hold on, but also to concentrate on hope. Isn't hope in God what we are looking for in our suffering?

    Your testimony this week was especially encouraging to me as I had to face my husband's birthday yesterday.

    Thank you so much for taking the time to blog at WCP.

    In Christ,

    Carol H.
