A butterfly I met at Singapore Zoo last year

I woke up this morning and lay in bed for a while, thinking about who I am and praying. A song that we use to love as kids at Mascot Christian Fellowship popped into my head – do any of you remember the Butterfly Song? (I googled it and would you believe it has its own website? Of course it does.)

It’s a typically cheesy 70s kids song (I know the face Mark B would make if I sang it to him), but singing the chorus to myself I couldn’t think of a better thing to pray on my birthday:

For you gave me a heart and you gave me a smile
You gave me Jesus and you made me your child
And I just thank you Father for making me me

Also born today: Queen Elizabeth and Charlotte Brontë. But I’m glad God made me me, and not either of them.
