I wish everyday was this birthday.
I wish I could hold on to this feeling of overwhelming gratefulness
For each and every person
Who crossed my mind and heart today.
Never before in my (now even longer) memory
Has spring come in the dead of winter.
Fall, yes. October, yes.
But now, today,
a newness, a hope,
a sense of Him in each step of my past
and a glimmer of light in the future.
And so this grey sky has transformed
from dreariness to
a Lightening of the darkness.
For God, who said, "Let there be light in the darkness," has made us understand that this light is the brightness of the glory of God that is seen in the face of Jesus Christ.
2 Cor 4:6
