    By Rev. James Snyder

    I have just celebrated my birthday, my wife’s birthday and our wedding anniversary. I am not sure how old I am or how long we have been married and I won’t even go to my wife’s age. I’m old enough to know better.

    I have long past the idea of candles on my birthday cake representing one candle per year. The fire department will not give us a permit to do that.
