SO why cant you give her a present everyday of her life. Why wait until the day she was born????
Why not give it to her now???
what rubbish are you trying to create when you know John the Baptists head's was placed on platter, yes Jonh the Baptist, Jesus' cousin.!!! That's why birthdays should not be celebrated. If you want to celebrate your child's birthday, do so, but you will be doing it on you own. Jehovah's will is much stronger than yours.
Because she's a kid and there is NOTHING like seeing her eyes light up at being "honored". Yes, HONORED on her birthday. Made a big deal of, center of attention, presents and allowed to pick where we eat... If I ascribed to the Bible, perhaps your god Jehovah would scare me. I no longer think the Bible is more than a nice story... and "Jehovah" no longer scares me.
The silliness about the beheading as an example is just another scare tactic the WTS uses; it no longer has any effect on me.
**off to buy a Father's Day card and a couple more birthday cards for my July kids, July nephew and July brother** So much honoring to do! So much gratitude to express for having them in my life...
