Need a quick last minute birthday card you can make at home? This is often the case around my house… I spend days crafting the perfect DIY gift idea, and then the birthday card itself end up being an afterthought. Have you ever ended up purchasing an ugly store-bought greeting card because you ran out of time to make one for that awesome handmade gift you made? I certainly have. Now, though, I just keep a few rolls of washi tape in with my wrapping paper, along with some pretty white embossed paper. I found this cute handmade birthday card idea on Pinterest, and it has become my go to. Whip one up in minutes, but no one will ever know you did not spend hours making their card.
Your life will not be complete without a good friend who is always by your side. This is my wish for you: comfort on difficult days, rainbows to follow the clouds, smiles when sadness intrudes, faith so that you can believe, sunsets to warm your heart, laughter to kiss your lips, courage to know yourself, hugs when spirits sag, patience to accept the truth, beauty for your eyes to see, confidence for when you doubt, friendships to brighten your being, and love to complete your life.
The light shed by the candles on your birthday cake is blinding because you are so old! So we laugh together at the very idea. But the true light that is shed on your birthday is the illumination shed by your inner self, by your generous spirit, by the warmth of your friendship. I am thankful for all of that, and because your friendship lights my way even in the darkest hour. As long as we are friends, I know I will always have your special light to guide my path and call me home.
Thank the Lord for all the wonderful blessings that you have received for your birthday. In our communion with the divine spirit, we acknowledge the greatness of creation and the joy of our loving friendship as we travel together down life’s ever-shifting roads and highways. But we have faith in the things that truly matter, which includes our friendship and the plan of a benevolent creator. Naturally we would wish the Lord’s mercy and benevolence to grace the life of our best friend on his or her birthday.
