HAPPY BIRTHDAY BLESSINGS to Margaret Wooldridge (May 15, 1937).
O God, our times are in your hand:
Look with favour, we pray, on your servants Margaret as she begins another year.
Grant that they may grow in wisdom and grace, and strengthen their trust in your goodness
all the days of their lives; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
