Celebrating birthdays is such fun, especially when they are your own! Not every eleven-year-old has their birthday announced on the local news, but I was most pleased with the reactions to the Guardian article I wrote as it took me a long time to write. On 27th January we marvel as a family at another year together and give thanks.
A Psalm of Thanksgiving for Eleven Years
Rejoicing in God’s lavished love,
Celebrating His glorious goodness for the last eleven years,
You have cradled me in the crook of your arms,
Comforting me in the unreachable blackest night,
For some, darkness would have opened the door to despair,
But, your hope-fuelled love gives me freedom to dance life’s joy,
Your serene peace massages my soul,
As I await your call home forever.
Rejoice in God’s goodness evermore – Amen!
