I love my birthday! Family and friends from near and far send their happy wishes and sing the birthday song to me.
I always create a special day for myself. Okay, maybe three or four special days of celebration. This year is no exception.
For me, a birthday is a time to reflect over the past year and plan the beginning of a new year. I am continually blessed and rich with family and friends. This year I am grateful for experiencing the tremendously exciting new opportunities that were presented to me. It certainly has been outstanding and I am looking forward to a full and fabulous year ahead!
As I envision the future, I would like to share a scripture verse with you.
Whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable -- if anything is excellent or praiseworthy -- think about such things. Philippians 4:8.
