celebrating our country while working to cure its ills
    A birthday is naturally a time to celebrate the God-given gift of life – the past year, as well as all the years the Almighty has blessed each of us with.

    A birthday also presents each of us with an ideal opportunity to honestly and humbly assess where we are in life. It’s a time to prayerfully discern in what direction is God calling us to go in?
