FC: Fierce Fabulous Forty!
1: Each year our birthday forces us to grow Into the person whom we have yet to know With circumstances that hopefully have made us wise When we learn from our multitude of mistakes and tries. To take a long look at these years gone past To really reflect on how time travels fast To know that every day that each of us lives Is a great gift from God that He lovingly gives. So as you celebrate another passing year again On this day that marks the beginning of the moment when You entered this world for a purposeful plan Just remember your worth doesn't come from man. Your worth comes from our Creator who made you unique Who gave you knowledge and words to speak Who doesn't care about a past success or failure But only cares about your heart that His presence makes pure. False paths, lost dreams, wrong choices, it's true Fills your past as well as everyone else's, too There may be those lost memories that hinder your day But with God in your mind the regrets soon melt away. Cherish this day and who you're growing to be This special person that all of use already see Embrace this coming year and live each day a new By becoming the excellent one God created in you.

4: To My Love Alicia There are things I'd like to say to you my love on your special day I am forever thankful God sent you my way. Like a gift from up above, you showed me how it is to feel real love. I know many mountains we've had to climb and sometimes forever has seemed like a very long time. Yes, we've endured our share of pain, but together we have so much to gain. Bigger mountains may lie ahead, but together there is no hill we can not tread. So always remember my love for you, and there is nothing together we can not do. I'll be here forever - my love is true. The person beside me, that would be you. Love forever Shawn

Thank you for making my birthday so very special, magical and heartwarming just as you are.You put a lot of thought into making my 40th Birthday the best ever. I love you for that! THANK YOU SO MUCH!! Forever yours, Alicia | LOVE | To My Love SHAWN
