Thankfulness and Two Birthday Wishes

Bird of Paradise seen unexpectedly on a jog

Good Morning, God!

Wheee! Today is my birthday and I am SO THANKFUL! I am blessed — and I know it. And I would count the ways, God, but then I would be sitting here all day!

I’m thankful that I did go jogging yesterday — with stops for photos. My first jog in a few days.

So much beauty, God, so much beauty. And how good it is for my spirit to pause and appreciate it. Beauty is healing in some strange way. Beauty in the physical world and beauty in the smiles of family and friends. Again, God, I am VERY THANKFUL!

But, God, I confess, I have TWO BIRTHDAY WISHES. The first one is for folks who enjoy praying. Please pray for Heidi Lum and her young son, Noah, who are off to Swaziland to review and encourage our (Advocates for Africa’s Children) partners and projects. What we are doing is ground breaking and important and needs prayer.

The Second Wish, God, is that People will watch this marvelous video of Dr. David Servan-Schreiber talking about what we can do to turn back cancer. We DO have the power to do that, God. We CAN help ourselves. And the BEST time to do it is NOW.  I would so much rather have family, friends and “unmet friends” watch this video and commit to taking better care of themselves than receive leis or cards or nice stuff like that. Of course, I love cards!

But, I LOVE PEOPLE so much more! And I LONG for us all to TAKE CARE of ourselves. So please, God, help people WATCH this video.
