As I think about this time of year and what is celebrated, I think about the One we celebrate, who He is and the hope He gives us. Seeing that His birthday is celebrated by so many this day, I thought it fitting to share this with you.
A birthday is a new beginning,
A fresh start, a new outlook.
A birthday is a remembrance of the past
And of God’s hand in your life.
A birthday is a time of fondness
For things gone and things to come.
A birthday is spending precious time
With those you hold most dear.
It is a time for making memories
For all your future years.
A birthday is thinking of others
Instead of yourself.
It is a time of giving and receiving
For you and those you love.
A birthday is celebrating all the victories
That you’ve made thus far.
It is a time when you look with hope and enthusiasm
Toward the future and its gifts.
A birthday is enjoying the now,
This very moment, this very second.
