Today marks the 28th birthday of a friend since I was a child.
Shawn Anderson, of Albany, NY, turns 28 years old this day.
Ten years ago Shawn was without hope in this world and not a member of the covenant of grace. In these ten years, Shawn has become a lover of Jesus Christ, a defender of the Reformed Faith, and reformer in his own right. Shawn's chief desire is to see the Church return to the landmarks that were set up by our Presbyterian forefathers.
Shawn and I are comparable to that of Jonathan and David. Our friendship is deeply rooted to the point of an inability to separate. I love Shawn as a brother and as a friend.
All who know Shawn have been touched by him in many ways.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY BUDDY!!! Here is your birthday Psalm. Sing it with me!
Psalm 28 (Geneva 1599)
A Psalme of Dauid.
Vnto thee, O Lord, doe I crie: O my strength, be not deafe toward mee, lest, if thou answere me not, I be like them that goe downe into the pit. Heare the voyce of my petitions, when I crie vnto thee, when I holde vp mine handes towarde thine holy Oracle. Drawe mee not away with the wicked, and with the woorkers of iniquitie: which speake friendly to their neighbours, when malice is in their hearts. Reward them according to their deedes, and according to the wickednes of their inuentions: recompense them after the woorke of their handes: render them their reward. For they regarde not the woorkes of the Lorde, nor the operation of his handes: therefore breake them downe, and builde them not vp. Praised be the Lorde, for he hath heard the voyce of my petitions. The Lorde is my strength and my shielde: mine heart trusted in him, and I was helped: therfore mine heart shall reioyce, and with my song will I praise him. The Lorde is their strength, and he is the strength of the deliuerances of his anointed. Saue thy people, and blesse thine inheritance: feede them also, and exalt them for euer.
