When I was a little boy I was so excited about my birthday that I would tell everybody, and I would have a day off school. Well I still love my birthdays, but I won't be having a day off tomorrow because Shed Happens at Murrumba Downs. I'll be having a chat with my Sleep Specialist at the Shed - Dr. James Douglas. He's been looking after me for the last 10 years ensuring that I have the best quality sleep possible. I hope that every bloke will get some 'gold' in hearing about the importance of getting enough sleep so we can function better through the day.
Anyway, back to birthdays. It's been 10 years since I had to deal with that prostate problem and I can tell you that I thank God everyday for my healed body. I try to go for a walk every day along the water's edge at Woody Point 'cos I reckon each walk adds another month onto my life. For me, walking benefits me body, mind and spirit.
I thank God for all the blokes across the land that I've met through Shed. It's been an amazing journey of encouragement and true love from God, man to man. I could easily write another book with the many God-stories that I've heard over the past year.
But fellas, God's greatest gift on earth to me has been my beautiful wife, Margaret. Wow, what an angel - and how God has used her to love and nurture me into the kingdom of God.
My birthday wish for you is to keep on encouraging the bloke closest to you so that he gets an opportunity to meet the Creator of the universe, and gets to know who he is and whose he is and know that he is a champion son of the King.
