Happy Birthday, Mark Lee!

May 29th

It is time to wish our beloved guitarist, book club leader and all around swell guy, Mark Lee a very happy birthday.

Normally, we here at Third Day Pix discourage personal messages being left for the band. (as we have no way of assuring they will be read.) But we make an exception for birthdays.

Leave your birthday message for Mark in the comments; a wish, a prayer, a note of encouragement. I feel certain he will see them.

From the staff of Third Day Pix (um...that's really just me and the Okie) we wish you a wonderful day filled with adventure and discovery. I hope you find joy in every day of the coming year. I pray God will bless you with health and wisdom and abundance of love. May you receive from those around you the friendship and delight you bring to others.

Third Day on the 3rd Day

Mark gave us the old 'wrap it up' signal.

It's the last Third Day on the 3rd day for a while. Makes one reflect when coming to the closing of a season. What a year it has been! From last April to today it has been a struggle, a joy, a black hole, a dawning of new life, death, defeat and victory.

May of 2008, brought the onset of Lupus. By August of that year, I was practically bedridden. Three weeks in the hospital, some close calls and lots of medications later, I am in remission. We welcomed out newest nephew into the family this year. I walked away from some relationships and clung more tightly to others. I celebrated my niece's academic success. (A struggle we have been praying victory over for many years.) And I buried my beloved grandfather.

Through all the ups and downs Third Day has remained my soundtrack. I can always find encouragement, peace and inspiration in their music. So on this, the last Third Day on the 3rd day of the season, I take a moment to appreciate the background music of my life.
