Happy Birthday

Where other people saw fragility,
I saw an invincible force;
Wisdom, ripe with age
For every question, a perfect answer.

You can't take it with you when you go.

Where other people laid down and quit,
You fought on, against the status quo;
Love, stubborn and old fashioned
For every child, unwavering loyalty.

I'm ready! All I gotta do is slip my shoes on.

Where other people swallowed their opinion
I could count on you to be outspoken;
Acceptance, always found
Through every thing, family is still family.

You want something to eat?

Where other people hid from minutes and hours
You strut your independence and health;
Immortal, etched in my memory
For every passing moment, clearly pictured in my mind.

I won't live to see another one...

Where others chose to keep from their thoughts,
I let your words obscure the truth;
Hope, may you live through our presence
Happy Birthday, may you rest in peace.

Author Image Author Image I love reading the Word of God. With prayer God's Word reveals so much: from comfort to temperance, from perspective to affirmation. Digging into the depths of the Word, cross-referencing history, language and time differences, is a passion of mine. In March of 2015 I decided to go back through the Bible doing an in depth study on each section I read. Eventually I decided to share my journal of notes as I partake in this journey. I hope you are blessed by God and inspired to pursue a deeper relationship with Him. I love reading and learning about God, nature, and science. I am interested in how it all connects. The Creator's fingerprints are all over his creation. We can learn so much about Him and how we came to be by exploring the world around us. Join me as I explore the world and draw closer to the One who created it all.
