STOP AND THINK – The secret to enjoying life is to count your blessings–not your birthdays. (Author unknown)

On each birthday, we think we are one year older. In fact, of course, we are only one day older on the anniversary of our birth. But, we still think in terms of years; we’re always asking children how old they are. That’s important to children wanting to grow up fast. For older folks, it’s helpful not to think so much of years but of the richness of those years.

For through wisdom your days will be many, and years will be added to your life. . . The fear of the Lord adds length to life, but the years of the wicked are cut short (Proverbs 9:11; 10:27).
