I am 57 today.

Not quite so very, very old but not quite so young either. 

I wish that I could enjoy my birthday with my loved ones

With my grandchildren. 

Oh God, my times are in your hand:
Look with favourite, I pray, on me as I begin another year. Grant that I may grow in wisdom and grace, and strengthen my trust in your goodness all the days of my life; through Jesus Christ my Lord

One of the loveliest things about being 57 is that I am well aware that 

this too shall pass.

  1. Oh, I'm so sorry that you are celebrating without grandchildren. I'm finding myself sort of in a droopy way over Easter without the grands, and I keep telling myself how blessed I am to have such sweet little people to miss.
    And we are both 57--a pretty good number, I think.

  2. Happy Birthday - hope you have a great day!

Deep peace of the running wave to you.
Deep peace of the flowing air to you.
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you.
Deep peace of the shining stars to you.
Deep peace of the gentle night to you.
Moon and stars pour their healing light on you
