Paying attention to myself by presenting myself with some sweet birthday wishes isn’t what I normally do. However, because my body and soul need to feel happy and loved today, of all days, I decided to wish myself a happy birthday, hoping that I might want to celebrate my born day.
When a born day’s joy is ruined by reminders of the day a parent died and the day a child was confined to a hospital bed—then died less than two months later—there is no way the birthday person will feel truly jubilant.

Our prayers to Father God don’t have to follow any “church” or man-made methods or models. Our prayers also don’t have to be difficult or lengthy. Furthermore, Father God doesn’t command us to pray prayers that are eloquent or grammatically correct. Actually, if we are praying sincerely and humbly, our prayers can be very simple.
Let us courageously, powerfully, and godly live to the fullest the lives Father God has allowed us to have at such a time as this. That is the best way we can thank Him for letting us see 2018.
