On the week of your birthday, smudge some of your birthday cake icing on one of your pages for that week.
You have crowned the year with Your bounty, And Your paths drip with fatness. Psalm 65:11
Adult birthdays kinda sadden me, you know? I mean, think about how our parents used to REALLY celebrate our birthday, and about how we go all out for our kiddos’ big day. But, as we get older it seems as if we celebrate our birth day less. Why is that, I wonder?
I think it is more important to celebrate adult birthdays because we have a tendency to become more isolated as we get older, and it feels a lot more like people care less about us. In my family, we have a birthday week! We celebrate all week with little gifts, special recognition moments and various meal celebrations. For a whole week, that special person is made to feel, well, SPECIAL!
To celebrate the life that God has birthed in me – hopefully, one that honors and exalts Him, I have added icing from my yummy strawberry cake (my current favorite) to my wrecked prayer journal. I have tried to make it look like little pink flowerettes. Perhaps you can think of a creative way to add your birthday cake icing to your prayer journal?
By the way, for a great birthday celebration cake, try my recipe for Gina’s Yum-Yum Cake that was given to me from a catering friend here.
Also, since it is the weekend, I hope you join me for my regular #ShePrayerJournals Weekend Workshop!
Happy Prayer Journaling!
