Just about everyday, someone we know marks a transition. If it's a birthday, you might want to share this with them. That's what I'm doing. Happy Birthday, Kara!
Every day, we make transitions
from what was to what will be;
Moving on past twenty something
Some folks tend to measure life
in years upon the earth.
But, it’s not the candles on the cake
that tell you what you’re worth.
And it’s not what you accumulate
as you go from day to day.
Real worth is only measured
by what you give away.
It’s what you do with what you have
that matters in the end.
It’s if you treat each one you meet
as if they were a friend.
Don’t think of being over the hill
or of running out of time.
Just remember, on God’s calendar
you’re always in your prime.
