Happy Birthday Dad….

“I grabbed a pile of dust, and holding it up,
foolishly asked for as many birthdays as the grains of dust,
I forgot to ask that they be years of youth.”


(a rather blurry picture I’ve posted before of dad when he turned 4 in 1932)

I wasn’t very sure we’d make it to today…
and not so certain we’ll finish the day…
for now it will be a day of celebration
as our birthday boy turns 89…

“May the Lord bless you and keep you;
May the Lord make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you;
May the Lord lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace.

Numbers 6: 24-26

    Happy birthday to your dad. I feel I’ve come to know him through all this. He is blessed to have you as a daughter and care taker. Soon he’ll be celebrating with his Savior – a new birthday free from suffering. Prayers for both of you.

    Your dad’s birthday will be celebrated differently from in the past but it is still a celebration and you will be able to share many memories with him as you are present there for him. Happy birthday to your dad and blessings to you as you both wait upon the Lord’s timing.

  7. Oh what a day it must have been, to face your birthday on one hand and the possible end of life at the same time. You have been such a good and faithful servant dear Julie. My thoughts and prayers remain with you and your family and you travel this journey and all the others in your lives. God bless each and every one of you and may the Lord comfort your dad as he passes from here to glory! Love and hugs, Natalie ❤ ❤ ❤
