A year older a year sexier, blah blah blah… you know all that nice stuff people say on their birthdays. I usually don’t even acknowledge my birthday, but I think this is an important one. Having long surpassed a quarter of a century on this earth, knocking profusely on Thirty’s door, I often feel unaccomplished. With only a half completed PhD, no babies, no wives and none pending. One would expect more at this time, as I age closer to death yearly. Nonetheless, God, my God, our God, has blessed me so much more than I deserve. So for me, today is his day, a day I reflect on His accomplishments in my life, a day I appreciate what I have and humbly wait for what I don’t have. Today I say, let His will be mine.
