Never Forgotten

Thankful Thursday celebrates the leap year babies on their real birthdays this year! This morning one of the nationally broadcast shows held a big birthday party for several of the guests with birthdays that fall today. When asking different individuals about the celebration of this special day, one girl responded, “I like when we have a leap year because my friends actually remember my birthday and don’t forget about it.”

Her response struck me. I wondered what it would feel like to celebrate my actual birthday every four years. To be invisible for three years and then celebrated for one. I think that would lead to feelings of loneliness.

Thankfully we have a God who loves us and sees us every moment of every day. He made us (Psalm 139:14) and knows our thoughts (Psalm 139:2). He nevers leaves us nor forsakes us (Hebrews 13:5).

How amazing to think that the Creator of all things always remains with each of us. We are that special to Him. Always remembered and always loved.
