Today Is My Birthday

Today I turned 43. I think. I'd have to ask Patty to know for sure.
Let's see...2011-1968????? Yeah, 43! You think I'm joking? No. I have to add it up every time. (Or subtract it down???) Anyway, today is my birthday.

The Jehovah's Witnesses don't celebrate birthday's because every time a birthday is mentioned in Scripture, something bad happens.

Herod's birthday? John the Baptist goes headless.

Job's son's birthday? A tornadoes kills the entire family.

Jesus' birthday? All the children of Bethlehem slaughtered.

And so it goes.

We DO celebrate birthdays. So Happy Birthday, to me.

Anyway, I came across a website that offers a Bible verse for your special day.

Mine is James 1:17

Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows. (NIV)

Check it out here and when it's your turn, Have A Very Happy Birthday!
