(Reposting this from October because it just seems fitting today.)
Lyla Lindquist is celebrating, too.
Be sure to join the party at her place.
And we’re celebrating with Jennifer over at Getting Down with Jesus.

All this color
The clouds grey as the sun puts on bright clothes
Who wastes color like this?
Flinging beauty willy-nilly
As if everyone would see this sunrise.
I got an email from Megan last October. She wrote,
“I thought I’d share with you this poem that I started at Laity.
When I came back to it, I decided to arrange it Sandy-style.”
I never thought of myself as having a style.
What a precious, beautiful gift.
But this should not surprise me.
Because you are a beautiful gift, and I’m so very glad
that you’re my friend and January birthday pal.
Thank you for the way you reflect the colors of His beauty.
Happy Birthday, Megan!
Psst . . . I’m also posting over at The Barn Door today: Are We Preserving Our Stories?
What a beautiful gift. Happy birthday to Megan, indeed!
Lyla Lindquist says
Yes. Love this.
Thanks for taking my back, Sandy! (And, if you’re still talking to us, happy birthday, Megan.)
Lyla started it. Just sayin’.
Cheryl Smith says
You ladies inspire me, the whole, crazy lot of you. 🙂
Welcome to the club, Crazy Cheryl. 🙂
Shelly Miller says
What a lucky girl Megan is to be celebrated this way by friends. I knew I liked all of you for some reason.
And we like you, Shelly!
David Rupert says
Sandy style…that makes me laugh. Actually,You both make me laugh!
Laughter–the best medicine. 😀 😀
I love Megan. And this celebration of her. And you. All of you.
And BTW, did you bring the disco ball?
Hands in the air for Megan! Woot! Woot! Stopping in from my day of quiet to throw a fistful of virtual glitter in the air!
It’s getting awful messy in here. Who’s on the cleanup committee?
Megan Willome says
Oh, thank you, Sandy!
Yes, you do have style–style galore.
So you’re not mad? Whew! 😀 😀
And if anyone has style, it’s you! Praying for your week. That it would be restful and sweet.
Kelly Sauer says
Love that you got that shot of her at Laity! She blocked my shots, and I was too tired to pursue!
Megan, so glad to have you in my life!
I’m just giddy with delight at how beautiful it turned out!
S. Etole says
I’m crashing parties every which way today … blessings to all of you
Whoo-hoo. There’s always room for you, Susan!
I’m party-hopping! Happy birthday to our Megan-girl! Sandy, you really know how to party :).
Happy Birthday dear Megan. You are an absolute delight!

Love this, Sandy! What a beautiful tribute.
