What's This?

Happy birthday to you,
Happy birthday to you,
Happy birthday dear child,
Happy birthday to you.

Oh how we love to celebrate the birth of our children. We plan, ponder and prepare for the big day. Will it be:

Ponies, posies or piñatas
Swimming, swinging or swatting a ball around
Flowers, favors and 31 flavors of ice cream cake to choose from

Oh my! How fun it is. We invest our time out of love for our children. Yes indeed, they are so well loved.

Jesus Gives Thanks for Little Children 

13 Then little children were brought to Him that He might put His hands on them and pray for them. The followers spoke sharp words to them. 14 But Jesus said,“Let the little children come to Me. Do not stop them. The holy nation of heaven is made up of ones like these.” 
Matthew 19:13-14 (NLV)

Yes, indeed. The holy nation of Heaven is made up of ones like these. LOVED. From Above. From before they were knit in the womb to the end of their numbered days, they are loved. On earth as in Heaven.

We love to say happy birthday to our dear child. Can you imagine celebrating it with Jesus? Join us as we sing Happy Birthday

Would you join me in singing as I celebrate the birthday of my youngest?

Happy birthday to you,
Happy birthday to you,
Happy birthday dear Kyle,
Happy birthday to you.

Thank you, each one of you, for joining the celebration with me of Kyle’s 29th birthday. Yes, he is “forever 20” and dancing with Jesus in Heaven, yet I celebrate.

Thank You, Lord God Almighty, for revealing my son, Kyle, dancing with Your Son, Jesus. Yes – in a dream the morning we buried Kyle, I saw the mirror image of the photo here with Jesus and Kyle dancing. And I didn’t see the photo until a day or two later! All I can do is praise You, Lord, for Your good gifts full of love.

I joyfully sing the last phrase of the happy birthday song…


FYI – the audiobook of Dance With Jesus: From Grief to Grace released!

Find the 1 hour and 23 minute audiobook of Dance With Jesus: From Grief to Grace on AmazonAudible, and iTunes

Celebrate, celebrate, dance to the music…
