There is a beginning and an end for everyone.
May I be faithful in the span between.
Not successful or spectacular.
Not popular or wealthy.
Faithful: Having done everything I could with what I've been given.
Faithful, not flawless. My frailties and limitations are well-documented.
Still, O God, tell me I answered your call.
Birthdays remind me that there was a beginning and there will be an end.
We do cakes and candles about 80 times.
Oh, God, may I be faithful in the span between.
