... works hard for a living.
I was born a little after 1 a.m. on a Saturday. At least in Illinois I was. Had I been born farther west, I could have been born on a Friday.
Friday's child is loving and giving.
My birth verse for a Saturday birthday is "Now it is God who has made us for this very purpose and has given us the Spirit as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come." ~ 2 Corinthians 5:5 NIV ~
But if I had been a Friday's child, it would have been "And when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the crown of glory that will never fade away." ~ 1 Peter 5:4 NIV ~
Regardless of which day I was born on, which time zone... I love the thought of a promise ~ a "deposit" ~ that guarantees what is to come... and a glory that will never fade away. While working hard for a living is a fact of life for all of us these days... I know without a doubt that my reward in Heaven will be worth the labors of my body here on Earth, and that the house that is being built for me will be magnificent.
