On the Day Baha'u'llah Was Born

The Birth of Baha'u'llah falls on November 12th each year. Manifestations of God are a slightly intimidating and overwhelming concept to grapple with as an adult. How exactly do you celebrate such a day? What could you possibly give a prophet?  

But for the under 3 population?  A piece of cake. literally. When I asked Samaya what she would like to give Baha'u'llah for His birthday, there was little to no hesitation. Bake a cake with pink frosting, paint Him a picture, have a party. Even Violet got carried away with the spirit of the occasion, throwing herself wholeheartedly into unloading the dishwasher for me. Service. Could there be a better gift?

Samaya's most cherished friend, Mora, invited us to a tea party to celebrate the occasion and what a lovely time was had by all. What really could be better than prayers, birthday cake, tea, and dearly loved friends? 

Happy birthday to the ultimate Gift to humanity. I am deeply grateful.
