Heavenly Father, I come to You in the name of Jesus. Thank you for this day – my birthday. A day that You chose to bring me into the earth to make a difference. Thank you for my family who greeted me at 6:00am this morning…thank you for my boss and staff who showered me with a wonderful luncheon today…thank you for our chief of staff at CELEBRATION CHURCH @ Columbia who communicated “Happy Birthday” with me at 7:00am this morning…thank you for the opportunity to teach my class tonight at 7:00pm at church with my wife, Gail, and the 15 hungry students who love You…and thank you for all of my countless family and friends that called, sent a text or forwarded Facebook/LinkedIn messages. It is indeed a great day and I THANK YOU for choosing me to make a difference. Amen.
