happy birthday yourgin

wouldn't you love a sky like this to help you celebrate your birthday??!
it was so spectacular!
living in the caribbean pretty much guarantees a decent sunset most nights
but i have never seen a sunset quite like this!!

perhaps this was God's present for Yourgin...
i remember years ago when we were living in Saskatchewan
it was my birthday
i had gone out for chinese food and then went bowling with my sweet family,
 after the kids were in bed 
a friend dropped by and asked if i wanted to go for a birthday walk.
it was a cool fall night,
the sky was clear and bright
we were standing outside my friend's house talking when suddenly
she said,
'debi look up!  i think God has saved the best present for you for the last!'

i looked up and right over my head,
in a perfect circle was the most magnificent display of
northern lights shimmering in shades of green and blue.
i almost cried!!
it was a pulsating display of His love right over my head!!

i know that yourgin was very happy on his birthday
they don't typically celebrate birthdays on the island here
so he was surprised by the meal, and the cake and the gifts
but i still think the best gift
is the sweetest sunset ever from the Father above...
