50 years ago today, 3000+ post Adam years later, God scooped me from my mother's womb and breathed His Life, into a human again.......
I would like to thank Him for life, my mother for being pro-life, and my wife for still being in my life after 29 years.
Through the ups and downs, the heaven and hell, the good, the bad, and the ugly, I would......
I would sit up straight and pay attention in school.
I would always respect my elders.
I would never smoke, drink, or do drugs.
I would never do drugs. (that deserved repeating)
I would never lie. (which could cancel out the preceding two lines)
I would never cheat.
I would never steal.
I would never covet my neighbor's ass.
I would never worship other Gods.
I would never commit adultery. (see neighbor above)
I would never forsake the Sabbath.
I would never take my Father's name in vain.
But I can't change everything. In fact, I can't change anything.
As Popeye would say, "I Yam what I yAm"
Now don't be sad, this is where it gets really good, awesome in fact.
Even though I'm guilty of all the above, I'm forgiven.
And because I'm forgiven, I've learned to forgive.
What a marvelous birthday present.......learning to forgive.
A miraculous gift I can share with everyone.
Just as one candle lights 10,000 and is never diminished,
I have a gift that will actually increase each time I share it.
Forgiveness stands as a solitary candle in a world of judgment.
Light in a Dark World.
On my 50th birthday, my request is that you place one candle on my cake.
Find one person, one thing, one memory, one experience, one boss, one co-worker, one relative, just one...
Just pick one..........
And forgive them, or it, or whatever.
It may be tough, at first....
but the world will become a brighter place,
and you will be set FREE!
"Now who's the light of the world?"
Yes You Are!
Yes He Still Is!
I'm just saying.......
