Yes, I realize that today is NOT your birthday. Yes, I know that your birthday was last Monday. Yes, I just forgot to do a Pop Pop Epistle. My apologies. It does not mean that you are less loved it just means that your Pop Pop is getting forgetful in his older age. That being said… Happy Birthday!

For a 3 year old you are so full of LIFE and personality! I thought this would be a good chance to share ALL the words to a song that you are only familiar with the chorus of.

Your Mommy has no doubt told you that I used to sing this to her everyday on the way to school. And you have heard me sing it many times as it kind of represents the theme song of my life. I wrote it many years and still probably sing it every day as I am having my time alone with God. I hope it is a song that you are singing 75 years from now and are sharing with your kids, grandkids, and great-grandkids.

(chorus)
It’s a great day to be alive
It’s a great day to wake up and sing
It’s a great day to be a child of the King
It’s a great day to be alive.

Life is an adventure
Each day a new surprise
A chance to watch God do His thing
Before our very eyes.
And those who say they love Him
Who call upon His name
Will find joy in the journey
And strength for each new day.
(chorus)

Today I’ll make a difference
Today I’ll take my stand
Today I’ll walk with Jesus
As He guides me by the hand.
I’ll set a good example
And I’ll live unselfishly
I’ll choose to live by faith
Because the Father has changed me.
(chorus)

And when this life is over
And eternal life begins
When death has claimed this body
And we’ve said goodbye to friends
There won’t be any reason
For us to be afraid
Cause when we see the Father
We can joyfully still say that…

It’s a great day to be alive
It’s a great day to wake up and sing
It’s a great day to be a child of the King
It’s a great day to be alive.

Never forget that you are very loved!
