Today is Dad's first birthday in heaven. Last year, we "celebrated" his birthday in the hospital room, and the nurse brought in a tiny cake. And the year before that, the family was in Katrina exile, so Dad's birthday party was in the house my brother's in-laws put at my family's disposition, and his cake was a low-sugar banana cream pie. Now he can "feast on the riches of God's own delights." I hope he remembers to brush a few crumbs from the Heavenly Banquet table down to us.
