    Don't Stop on Six // It Will Happen

    The finish line. The goal. What are you working toward? Obstacles and trials will come and go, but one thing can always remain constant on your journey.

    Keep your eyes on the prize because good things happen when you Don’t Stop.

    As I celebrate my birthday, I'd like to share this with everyone

    Birthdays are a gift from God
    By Helen Steiner Rice

    Where does time go in it’s endless flight
    Spring turns to fall and day to night
    And birthdays come and birthdays go
    And where they go we do not know….

    But God who planned our life on earth
    And Gave our mind and body birth
    And then enclosed a living soul
    With Heaven as the spirit’s goal

    Has given man the gift of Choice
    To follow that small inner voice
    That’s speak to us from year to year
    Reminding us we’ve naught to fear

    For birthdays are a stepping stone
    To endless joys as yet unknown
    So fill each day with happy things
    And may your burdens all take wings

    And fly away and leave behind
    Great joy of heart and peace of mind …
    For Birthdays are the gateway to
    An Endless life of joy for you
    If you but pray from day to day
    That he will show you the truth and the way​
