It’s My Birthday

Today is my birthday. I have a bad birthday habit: negative navel-gazing. But there is so much to be thankful for, so many blessings. Family, job, school, church, friends. We are blessed with some very good relationships. If my life were to end today, I have to be honest and say I would be very disappointed that I didn’t do more to justify my existence. However, God chose me and he loves me. His grace covers me. It isn’t up to me to make myself significant. It is up to me to keep in step with the Spirit and serve other people around me as much as possible. If I do that, it will have been a life well-lived.

Birthday resolution: Be thankful today!
