Happy Birthday, Mom!


"Your many years of loving God
have been golden years well spent,
Which brought a "golden harvest"
of deep serene content ...
For glorious is the gladness
and rich is the reward
Of all who work unceasingly
in the service of the Lord ...
And I know our Heavenly Father
has directed you each day
As you tried to serve and please Him
as you followed in His way ...
And looking back across your life
your spirit grows serene
As your soul in love envisions
what your eyes have never seen ...
And while the springtime of your life
is pleasant to recall,
You know the autumn of life 
is the richest time of all ...
For great has been your gladness
and priceless your reward
As through the years you walked with joy
in "The Vineyard of the Lord,"
For to know God and to serve Him
is a "Joy beyond all price."
~ Helen Steiner Rice ~


My dearest Mom,
may your birthday be extra special filled with lots of joy and sweet blessings.
You have touched many lives with your sweetness, kindness, goodness, and love -
I am honored and blessed to call you my mom
and I am thankful I get to celebrate you, precious Mother!

Have a very Happy Birthday!
I love you!
