I've also had a birthday - but it was celebrated in short bursts of activity and so there are no pictures of the big:

One of the things that has been challenging to me so far this semester is on the topic of prayer. A question that was presented to me a couple of weeks ago and one that I've been thinking about every since is:
When I take a "posture of prayer" do I really talk to God as a person - or do I go through the motions as a ritual without much thought at all?
May prayer not become an empty habit, but may it be an ongoing, moment by moment conversation with my Lord!
