Warning: Birthday Ahead!

Today's my birthday!
What a thrill
Yep, I'm going down the hill!
Gaining speed
and pounds and wrinkles
I might outlive old 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)
Taking the day off, and hope you will too my friends.
