Today, June 9th, marks Bishop T.D. Jakes’ 60th birthday. Along with messages from his church family and many others such as Pastor John Gray, Jakes received well wishes and celebratory messages from those closest to him – his family members:
‘Tis the day to celebrate one of the best men that I have known. Without this day there would be no me. My family stopped this morning to send our love. Have an amazing day!! Love you bunches!! Happy Birthday Daddybear @bishopjakes !! #faithingit #faith #happybirthday #daddysgirl #mamasgirl #cokeybear FYI: The number 60 means to uphold, help, and support. Easily done!!
When I was a little girl I used to watch the clock waiting for a new hour to begin. 57..58..59..I watched as sixty seconds turned into a minute, but what I was fascinated with was how 60 minutes became :00 on the clock. Then I saw it! I saw how all of a sudden the :59 became :00 and a new hour began. With that new hour came a fresh perspective with wisdom that only an accumulation of time could yield. That’s what excites me about today being your 60th birthday. Dad, this is your new hour. I’m anxiously awaiting to see how this new season of your life will challenge, inspire, and reward you. Sixty years of stepping into deep waters. Sixty years of breaking out of boxes. Sixty years of giving it your all. I can’t wait to see what you do with the next 60. I love you…like a lot. Happy Birthday!
If you ask me, 60 looks like brilliance redefined, strength guaranteed and reliability unparalleled. These are all of the things I aspire to be as I grow and mature in life. Your heart is a gift to us in the earth and has pushed us to go places and reach heights which have given us some of life’s best views. Happy birthday to the man who taught me the value of standing up to whatever life brings you! Love you @BishopJakes! ♛VI.IX.MMXVII♛
