happy birthday to me ...

yes another year is added to the countdown of my own mortality!

so happy birthday to me ... *grin* ...

the song that comes to mind as i think of the years i've lived - is the johnny appleseed song of grace ... please indulge the birthday girl and sing along ...

Oh, the Lord's been good to me.
And so I thank the Lord
For giving me the things I need:
The sun, the rain and the appleseed;
Oh, the Lord's been good to me.

now off to slumberland ... tomorrow the plan is to share the cake that my aunt made with whoever might drop by for coffee ... *smile* ...

Here's your 1st comment for this post...HAPPY BIRTHDAY, dear friend! I was thinking of you and Leo this afternoon as we were in Ottawa watching the Senators.

Check out my PILGRIM SCRIBBLINGS post concerning the game.

God's best to you as you begin another year of service for the King.

Lots of love,

David
