Happy Birthday, many years.

Thank you all very much for the well-wishes!
"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6

Happy Birthday Fr. George.  May have a 1000 more blessed years.

Happy Birthday -- live long and proper.

but maybe not 1,000 years...
(it's an arabic blessing; we don't really want you to spend an extra 900 years in repentance, though i probably need them myself!)
 ;)
may the years that you have be worth 1,000 good years!
(the euro-arab version of the traditional blessing)

Yes, a 1000 years is the Arabic version of "Many Years!"  ;)
