Only a few folks that I have known share the same date of birth with me – April 1st. One is a sister in the Lord that once attended our church, another is the daughter of a former co-worker and the third is another former co-worker.

Consider then the plight of my fore-person back when I was still working, seeing that she had only three men in her cable maintenance section and two of them were April fools.

It has been told to me that on the day I was born - at home, of course, as most births were back then - my oldest sister, with genuine concern, asked our mother if I was going to be a little fool. She was probably six or seven then - I personally didn't realize that prophetesses started out that young.

History is somewhat of a hobby to me (when I have the time) and I looked back to the world scene in my birth year of 1941. The world was either in the midst of war or on the verge, as it has been ever since, though I don't recall doing anything to cause all that.

Before and since, the goal of world peace has at least been the spoken goal of politicians, though, most of the time, they don't seem to do a lot to cause it to happen. Nor will it ever happen by their methods, because real peace only comes from the inside out, and not by the reverse.

On this my 65th birthday, let me state for the record that my inner peace continues to be supplied by my loving heavenly Father through the sacrifice of His Son Jesus. ec

Happy Birthday! I hope the day is as beautiful for you as it is here in Kentucky.

I suddenly realize that my complaints about what folks say to me when they learn I was born on Valentine’s Day may not be as bad as if I had been born an April Fool.

Blessings for many more joyful April Fool birthdays.

Happy Birthday! And, I too wish some day that all people will wake up to the songs of birds and not the sound of contention and violence.

Hope you had a Happy Birthday !

My husband's B'day was April 1st. too. His birth year was 1935.

Like you, my birth was in 1941, but a month later- on May 5th! :) so I'll soon be 65 too!

Sounds OLD, BUT DOESN'T FEEL that old!! :)

junierose - Thanks - I did have a good day. Your husband and at least one other one in blogland, someone kin to Peter I believe, had the April 1st distinction. I guess we had to be born sometime. :) One of my grandsons was born on May 6th (GM3) and a granddaughter on May 7th (GM1) - they will be 4 and 13 respectively. ec
