congratulations on making it to 40.  i reached that milestone last thursday and it was just another day.  i truly believe God puts these milestones in our path so we look to those who have gone before and help prepare those who are coming after.  40 is another year to praise God for the many ways he has provided and the things he is going to continue to do.

have a great birthday.

My son Danny is 10 years old today and he wanted to say hi.  He was so excited when he heard Eric's birthday was today also, and the fact that he could phone in and win a CD was awesome!
He's in school now, but we'll try after school and maybe he'll get through.

Eric just want to wish you a Happy Birthday.  I listen to you and Lisa each morning on my one hr commute.  Concerning 40, I agree with listeners about being a number and only getting better with age.  God bless you with many more, but listen you your body when your "20" something year old mind says you can do it bro.  Lol, it's not lying...
You guys are a blessing tome and my family. Lee 48

Happy Birthday Eric! You should be proud of the fact that you don't look 40. I am 43 and a lot of people have a hard time believing that I am a mother of 3 and the oldest being 20. Wear you age proudly, God made you beautiful.

Happy Birthday Eric!  I passed 40 a long time ago and what I discovered is that the first 39 years are just used as learning years.  From now on, you know what you did wrong and how to not make those same mistakes again and what you did you can carry on with those!

No matter what happens - Our God is an awesome God and I am seeing that and learning that more and more every day!

Happy Birthday to you! May the dear Lord bless you! Hey, if you're serious about making a sports segment, I have a few ideas for can call it Supermarket Sports with Eric and have the boxing bells ringing while the title is announced. Then, a couple of shopping carts can crash it up in the background while some big, husky sounding guy announces the meat specials for the day. Whoever gets pounded that day, in sports, will likely need the meat to help heal their wounds...LOL! We love you guys and wish you the very best on your new adventure...the 40s! ;)

I listen to you and Lisa every morning when the kids are getting ready for school. Happy Birthday to you. Lordy, Lordy look Eric is 40. I passed that mark 10 years ago this past Aug. It is just a number to others but to me it is a blessing of the life I have been given each birthday. So I wear the age of 50 very proudly and it doesn't bother me to say it or to let people know it. With the age also comes wisdom, knowledge and experiences. So blessings to you today on your special day. We love you all...

Happy Birthday Eric!!  You share your special day with my son, Bryce, who turned 6 today.  I asked him what he wanted me to cook him for his birthday and he said, "Just cook me a grilled cheese and curly fries, Mom!"  LOL  Oh, to be 6 yrs old again....Eric, I hope your lovely wife cooks you a much yummier birthday supper than I apparently am going to cook my son!!!  Hope you have an awesome, God-filled 40th birthday today!

  I gained 30 lbs the first year after my 40th birthday.  I went to the Dr in Feb. after I turned 40 in Jan. and he told me that if you don't change your eating habits or your exercise habits you will gain on average 30 lbs after you turn 40 and 15 more after you turn 50. Well, I gained 20 more lbs the year after I turned 50.
  So just a warning to the wise, start your diet and go to the gym regularly! Happy Birthday, Eric!

Hi Eric!  I was excited to find out that such awesome people share the same and me! LOL  I am *sshhh* (whispered) 5 years older then you. Also mom to 9 wonderful children and 10th Avenue North is our favorite artist right now.  I LOVE the messages behind their music.  I posted the podcast of your interview with them on my Facebook, hoping it would minister to others as much as it did to me.  It was just in time to help a friend through a rough patch. We are really hoping I can get through to win a CD, but if not we still hear them as KLove is on in our home and car 24/7.  LOVE you guys!  I'm SSSSOOOO tahnkful for you, have a GREAT birthday!

Hey Eric.  I have decided the best way to handle turning 40 is to leave the country and go on a mission trip.  I will turn 40 a week from Thursday.  I have not been able to think about turning 40, because I have been getting ready to leave for Cubs, which is tomorrow, for a mission trip.  I will turn 40 while in Cuba.  So Eric, I know it is to late to leave the country now, but start planning for when you turn 50.  
Enjoy the Day, you only turn 40 once, Praise the Lord.  Have an Awesome Day.

When I turned 40 I was telling everyone I was the new 30, until my son looked up at me and said "Mom, I think 40 is God's favorite number... aren't you 40?" Well needless to say I was 40 from then on. Smile

Happy Birthday Eric -- When my oldest daughter turned 30, she and her children were visiting us in Ohio from Florida.  I baked her a cake and put a #3 and a #0 on the cake.  When her oldest son, Jackson who was 5, looked at the cake, he said to his mom..."You're 2 numbers!!!"

Speaking of how you would tell your age, my Dad will be 73 in February.  For the last 30 years he says he is 21 and holding.   Have a wonderful and blessed Birthday.

Happy birthday Eric!!  I pray you have a wonderful & super blessed day on this awesome day!!  Age is only what you make it so if you want to feel young all you have to do is think young!  But just think how much more wisdom God has blessed you with over these 40 years than someone who is 20!!  I'm 38 so I am hovering that 40th birthday but I don't look at it as a bad thing, I look at it as such a wonderful blessing if God allows me to live to see it cause there are a lot of people that have even made it to 4 let alone 40!  So enjoy your day & celebrate your wonderful day!  Be blessed!!

Barbara on any birthday.  I just turned 54 on October 30.  I love it.  I enjoy being whatever age and finding what the new year will bring.  I have always enjoyed my birthdate.

What I do not enjoy is those who continue to remark on being older and expecting me to give up the activities I love.  I love to walk and exercise.  The people I was around kept trying to tell me, I was too old for this.  Since when?  I don't find it in the Word.  Abraham and Sarah walked all over the land promised them.  Moses walked all over for forty years.  Tell me where age is a sign of slowing down?  I had a pastor once who said, "we don't retire, we refire for the Lord."  I meet a lot of people to encourage or tell about the Lord while I am walking.

Eric, herzlichen Glückwunsch zum Geburtstag!!! May God bless you richly professionally and personally, thank you for being such a blessing to us here in Berlin/Germany, I love your prayers Smile Since Lisa asked for a word of advice on your birthday: Always ask the Father, Son and Holy Spirit first before making a decision. If it lines up with Him, then go for it! Sometimes we get soooo busy with our lives, that we forget to pause and ask for His help. Your life will not only change but He will also put some "unexpected" smiles into your life. I pray that your relationship with Him will be a very close one, so that His will be done! Herzliche Grüße/Cordially,

Hi Eric, happy birthday!
I turned 40 a year ago, and got a surprise motorcycle from my husband. That sure helped not feeling 40 Smile
But in the end we're just as old as we feel. In that sense - happy 21 Smile

Happy Birthday, Eric!  An old saying says "Life begins at 40"...never understood what that means...maybe once you're forty, you figure it out..
maybe it's a fancy way of saying "the early bird might get the worm, but it's the second mouse that gets the cheese"...Smile
