On birthdays and grateful joy

(Comments)

When James was celebrating his eighth birthday, he made the following comment:

I want everybody to enjoy my birthday, because we're celebrating that God made me.

To me, this is profound. It's a way of thinking that recognizes the awe of being created with gratitude and joy, and wants to share that joy with others.
