This Day is My Birthday

Today my heart sympathizes with the Reverend's sagacity:

“This day is my birthday. Bless the Lord, O my soul, for sparing mercy! He has upheld me in life and indulged me with such a variety of comforts, with so many and great favors, that I am a living monument, however unworthy, to his mercy. My consort is in health, my children live to our mutual joy, life still holds endearing moments of tenderest affection. My land brings forth its increase, my food is sweet to my mouth, my sleep, for the most part, is refreshing and wholesome. Though accounted but poor in the goods of this fleeting world, we have the joys of contentment, free from strife. It is God who gives all. May his be eternally the glory!” - Rev. Jonathan Fisher 1768-1847
