Today is my 61st birthday.

Happy Birthday to me
Happy Birthday to me
Happy Birthday dear me
Happy Birthday to me.

And many more.

And yes, Norma, I am now older than you, but you will catch up to me again.

Oh, and Happy Birthday to Max, my little brother! He was born on my 11th birthday. 

So tonight at church on my birthday I plan on preaching a sermon entitled, "Happy Birthday to Me!" Now that may sound like a vain topic, but it is my birthday. And it is a happy birthday. God has been so good to me.

Why is it a happy birthday?

Well, I am still here.

I am blessed beyond measure.

I have been born again and have an even greater birthday to celebrate, the date of my second birth when I got saved. My second birth happened when I was around 5-6 years of age. I remember it like yesterday. I don't know the date, but I know it happened. Jesus forgave me of my sins, and I was born again. Since I don't know the date, I celebrate my second birth on the date of my first birth.

I used to think that anyone over 40 was ancient. Now I know that life on earth is just the beginning as we will live forever. That's right. We will live forever. What a thought. Amazing!

So, how will I celebrate my birthday? I plan on preaching and letting people know that to be born again makes every birthday a happy one.

Happy Birthday to me!
