Blessed Birthday

Today my oldest son is celebrating his twelfth birthday.  In his honor I wanted to share this birthday blessing with you:

Nothing is more sacred than someone’s life, and no words more precious
than words that celebrate someone’s life. And so, we say to you,

Every time we think of you, we thank God,
and pray for you with prayers of joy.
For God began a good work in you,
and will complete that work in years to come.

Our prayer for you now is this:
that your love grow richer
in knowledge and insight of every kind,
that you learn by experience
what really matters,
that on the day you appear before God,
God welcome you as a flawless gift,
a rich harvest of praise,
through Jesus Christ. Amen.

(cf Philippians 1)

May the Lord bless you and keep you;
May the Lord shed his light upon you,
May the Lord look upon you kindly
and give you peace.

A birthday is an occasion for prayer, a holy time.
A journey began. God blessed someone with life.

Remembering the gift of life,
we thank God and celebrate.

Happy Birthday, Cal!

Love you!
Mom
