billy graham turns 90

billy graham's birthday is tomorrow - november 7th ... and he will be 90 ... if you want to leave a little "happy birthday" note, you can do that at http://www.billygraham.org/ ...

here is what dr. graham had to say about this birthday:

“I never expected to live this long, and it is hard to believe I have reached the age of 90,” says Mr. Graham. “Every day is a gift from God, no matter how old we are. I have discovered that just because we grow weaker physically as we age, it doesn’t mean that we must grow weaker spiritually. In fact, we ought to be growing stronger spiritually because our eyes ought to be on eternity and Heaven—on the things that really matter.”

i have been so blessed by the billy graham ministry over the years ... the decision magazines and books that they sent - i can truly say that God has used them in my life - to help me grow in grace ...

the world is a better place because of billy (and ruth - who has already entered into her reward)

may God bless billy graham ...

This is probably a hard birthday for him, as I think it is the first without Ruth. He has allowed God to use him greatly!

He is such an inspiration, isn't he? The pastor of the church I "go to" online says that Billy Graham reads 5 chapters of Psalms every day, and what that means is that he goes through the entire book of Psalms in a month. Psalms is such a wonderful book, although my favorite I think will always be Ecclesiastes. :)

I got saved the day after watching a Billy Graham movie called the Prodigal. I already had heard the gospel and knew what I needed to do, but that movie seemed to answer all my lingering questions.

Truly a great man of God. AMEN!!! I agree totally with his comment about growing more spiritally as we age, "The things of the world grow faintly dim, in the light of his glory & grace" are words I love to an old hymn.
