Happy Birthday! I started thinking about things after church the other day, like I’m supposed to do, and one of the things I thought about was when Pastor Daryl talked about how Christmas has become a contact sport because it’s all about the good deals on all the gifts, and people display everything they can about the Christmas season, but a lot of people have forgotten about the gift that You, Jesus Christ, are to us all, the gift that God gave, his only begotten son, to give the gifts of Faith, Hope and Love, and the gift of salvation…thank you, thank you, Jesus. So, the pastor said that before we get to carried away with gifts, we should light some candles on a cake and sing “Happy Birthday.” Now, you know that I’ve done this before, when I’ve gone out and bought a cake for your birthday, and this year I was thinking about baking one. But…as you know, I’m giving a go at my mom’s famous stuffing for my wife’s side of the family, and I’m making a nice, but modest, Christmas dinner for the eve of your birth for my crew. I have a little bit of culinary pressure going on here, and plus, none of us need the sugar.
But, hey, I’m not a baker anyway! I blog and rock…and make videos. And since I am a child of yours, you know what kind of child I can be…not so traditional, but very grateful, loving, and sincere. Thank God for You! You are the greatest birthday gift of all. I hope you enjoy the musical story to follow, especially my video at the end…I hope it finds you in good humor. In your most Holy and Precious name, Lord, I glorify, praise, and pray. Amen!
Sing along!! It makes you feel good!!
Make a wish!!
****NO VIDEO HERE ANYMORE, AT LEAST FOR NOW. SINCE I MADE THE VIDEO AS A GIFT I WON’T PUT ANY OTHER ONE UP HERE. ESSENTIALLY, HOWEVER, IT’S A REALLY COOL WAY OF SAYING HAPPY BIRTHDAY****
