Birthday Blessings

The sun has gone down on a good day. On a birthday...

Today, I am grateful for so many things.

For the gift of life. For family, friends, and loved ones.

I am grateful for the outpouring of love. Much of it unexpected.

A line from The Wizard of Oz says:

"A heart is not judged
by how much you love,
but by how much
you are loved by others."

This is true. But it is also true that how we love, and that we love, is all that matters. This is what God sees.

Love is all there is, for in love we know God.

This is the gift of this day...
