The years have turned to decades;
The decades, to scores.
Age can bind the body
But still love’s spirit soars.
I’ve loved Him since I was but a child.
He’s my friend when the storms are wild.
When forsaken by others, He’s at my side.
When troubled by choices, He’s been my guide.
In sorrow, He’s my comfort;
In panic, He’s my calm;
In confusion, He’s my anchor;
In illness, He’s my balm.
He makes me holy, pays my debt
Forgives my sins, and better yet –
I’ve been declared righteous because of His blood
He fights my battles, and gives me His love.
He’s my God, my Savior,
my Life, Light, and Love!
Nay! I’ll not mourn the passing years
that lead me to Him above.
A beautiful blessing Oneta, thanks for sharing it and I am wishing you a wonderful birthday!! ❤
I accept your wishes with thanks.
Amen! Great birthday blessing. Happy birthday to you! 🙂
I hear the music coming through. Thank you.
And a beautiful blessing it is. Happy birthday, and blessed years ahead!
I’m looking forward to them. Hope you continue to teach me many more years.
We’re never too old to learn. I learned a happy lesson this week. I had to have my first-ever root canal, and it became obvious that dentistry has greatly improved over the years. I never imagined such a procedure could be pain-free, but it was. A number of prejudices dropped by the wayside with that one!
What a wonderful bridge to cross! If I ever have to have one, I’ll drop you a note and say, “Tell me again.” 😀
This will make you grin. I was telling my dentist about some of my early experiences with his profession, including belt-driven instruments and ether as an anesthetic. He looked at me in amazement and said, “I read about things like that when I was in dental school…” I told him he had living history in his chair — to be nice!
Yes. I’m smiling sure enough!
Happy birthday Oneta 🌷⭐😍 All the best wishes for you dear 🍀
Thank you, dear. I’d like to send some flowers to you, but I don’t know how. 😀
Happy birthday Oneta and many happy returns of the day.
Sorry to disappoint you but we have not met yet, so you have long way to go before you meet him😂
Yes, I am looking forward to a long way to go with you, my blogging friend. I will rejoice greatly when you meet my Lord and find he is yours also. Good life, good eternity. 😀
Or maybe you meet the one I have not seen and find the big guy is one and the same. 😂
Then you have missed an amazing encounter with “the big guy” here on earth. 😀
I like encounters with small guys😂
I do to. Don’t I spend a lot of time with you? 😀 Just joking, just joking. However, I realize Dems have no sense of humor. So I apologize before punching the post button.
I did not want it to be so explicit, specially now a days dealing with a lady one must be careful.

Happy birthday, dear Oneta. You are one of a kind and I look forward to meeting you some day in paradise ❤️
Won’t that be wonderful! Do you know this old song? Won’t it be Wonderful There, having no burdens to bear, joyfully singing with heart bells all ringing, Oh, won’t it be wonderful there.” Don’t know how many years that has been buried in my brain, but I’m glad it revealed itself again today?
Birthday Greetings, hope you had a wonderful day. it was also my husband birthday 24 January he was 82.
You speak past tense, does that mean you no longer have him? Long marriage? Thanks for the greetings.
Thank you, Dee.
God bless you, Dear Oneta. 🙂 🙂
You’re welcome. 🙂
I sincerely love your attitude, Oneta.
A little late but nevertheless a Happy 85th! To many more!
Hope you had a great day celebrating your birthday 🙂
