Hi there, Wade in the Word readers!
It’s Amy, Billy’s wife. Billy’s birthday is Friday, December 19th. I told Billy for one of his birthday gifts, I’d write his post this week! He was thrilled because it is a welcomed break from all the work that goes into writing these posts.
I thought to myself, if Billy were writing a post on birthdays where would he begin … what would he do? Well, he’d go to the Lord and ask Him a question like, “Lord, what’s the big deal about birthdays?” The Spirit would take him to some scriptures that help make sense of it. Of course, he’d do some research by asking random people he meets along the way what they think about birthdays. And, after days or sometimes weeks of meditating on a topic, he’d write a wonderful post that blesses all who read it. Well, nobody can do what Billy does so I won’t even try!
I just asked the Lord to lead me to a scripture to be my birthday wish to Billy and the Lord took me to Numbers 6:24-26. Several years back we kind of adopted this as our family verse so it was so fitting when God took me there on my search.
Now, I didn’t tell him what I was going to write about because I wanted to surprise him. So he is reading this right along with all of you ☺ Now I need your help because the surprise is not really about my post on birthdays. The surprise is going to be all the wonderful comments I hope you all will leave wishing Billy a Happy Birthday.
So join me in wishing Billy a Happy 62nd Birthday!!!
