Pecadillo:

That's really troubling.

Happy Birthday. Which Bugaloo were you?

Happy Birthday Phil!

Remember, the only time a man can be changed is when he's a baby. :) You're too old now.

Carla Rolfe said...

Happy Birthday Phil, I hope you have a fantabulously wonderspetactiful day.

And I hope Frank brought enough cupcakes for the whole class.

:-)

DJP said...

Happy birthday, Phil. All the right people are glad you're here, and the only ones who maybe aren't are just who you'd wish. So that's a good thing.

DJP said...

You share birthdays with Hugh Laurie (House, MD). Would you say your pastoral style parallels House's bedside manner?

Happy Birthday Phil!!!

candyinsierras said...

Happy Birthday Phil. I am sure you have enough candles to make a pyromaniac happy.

Kim said...

I don't have any funny birthday wishes, cause that's not my thing. However, here is a sincere, homeschool mom type birthday wish.

I am truly thankful for the day God brought you into the world, because you are a passionate servant of God, and we need guys like that.

DJP said...

Fine, Kim. Way to ruin the festive atmosphere and make us all look like doofs.

:^p

jsb said...

Happy birthday...yada yada yada... thankful for TeamPyro... yada yada ...festive doofuses united ... yada yada... NOW give US a present, a new PJ post!

Kidding. Enjoy your day, you deserve it (yes, you Calvinists DO deserve things) and know we eagerly await your next blog thought blast.

Sharon said...

Happy, Happy! I have a mere 5 months on you!

BTW, great message Sunday morning. That one's an iPod keeper! Thank you for the reminder that everything we have, everything we are is of God's sovereignty. Soli Deo Gloria!

centuri0n said...

If there's a cupcake on the front page, then there's still one for you.

centuri0n said...

Think of it as a good will offer of cupcakes.

Dave said...

Woohoo! Happy Birthday.

SolaMeanie said...

"Today it's your birthday...da da dah da dah da dah..."

Which anniversary of your 39th is it? If you know what song the opening line is from, I'll know pretty closely, LOL.

Seriously, have a most blessed day!

ann_in_grace said...

Blessed and Happy Birthday!
I have been so fortunate to both read Your texts and listen to Your sermons, that now I cannot imagine it otherwise.

Enjoy Your day!

Daryl said...

Happy birthday from the great white North!!

Ava said...

Happy Birthday Phil! Your ministry has been such a blessing to so many.

Jim Crigler said...

Dude, you're a day younger than my daughter. Except for that whole "year" thing ...

Happy Birthday Phil!

I hope you aren't dancing around like the woman in pink in Pecadillo's video link.

~Mark said...

Happy happy birthday!! 8-)


...and thanks for all your hard work and ministerin'-n-stuff.

Gummby said...

Happy birthday! You share a birthday with my #3 child.

Here's your gift--something you can really use: a 4-D Rubik's cube.

Sewing said...

Happy birthday, Phil, and thank the Lord for your unique ministry.

SolaMeanie said...

I should have said earlier to Pecadillo, I could have gone the rest of my earthly existence without having the Bugaloos come back to mind. Sigh. Now the themes from H.R. Pufnstuf and Lidsville will be running through my head all day.

Just for that, I hope your local radio station plays "The Night Chicago Died" and "Billy Don't Be A Hero" back to back while you're in a restaurant booth, preferably under a speaker.

LeeC said...

Happy Birthday Phil!
God is gracious is He not?

And yes that is exactly what cameto my mind also when I saw Pecs link....

Oh, and Dan. I preferto think of Laurie as Bertie Wooster.
If you don't know what I mean look it up...it has a certain "whatsit" to it.

H.C. Ross said...

“The older the fiddler, the sweeter the tune."

A quote from Pope Paul VI, no less!

Happy Birthday from the Conventicle, Phil!

P.D. Nelson said...

Felicitations on the anniversary of your birth Phil.

brentjthomas said...

!Feliz Cumpleanos! Thank you for your instruction, your challenging, encouraging posts. Thank you for not hiding your light (or birthday candles) under a bushel.

Pecadillo said...

Turk, you can't kill Pecadillo, only the actors who play him.

Sewing said...

Should we call the Vatican and ask for a birthday greeting from the Pontifex Maximus?

Jon Nunley said...

*na zIsis Phil Johnson*
(Long) may you live Phil Johnson
*k'e khrOn'a polA*
and (may you live) many years
*meghAlos na gh'Inis*
may you grow old
*me Aspra mal'A*
with white (gray) hair
*pandU na skorpIzis*
(May you) spread out everywhere
*tis ghnOsis to fOs*
the light of knowledge
*k'e Oli na lEne*
and may everybody say
*na Enas sofOs*
there, (he is) a wise man

The above is actually a real birthday song you would sing if you were say, Greek.
I especially want to point out the line "May you grow old with white hair and spread out everywhere..."

*snicker*

Hope you have a wonderful birthday. And BTW, this is from Jon's wife. Lately he has been calling me his "wifey"... must be that Spurgeon book he's reading.

Daniel said...

Happy Birthday Phil!

The Fantastic Daughter-In-Law's Spouse said...

Bugaloos...a homeschool mom...and a Canuck named Daryl...for those of you who had THAT as your dreaded birthday trifecta, I believe it's paying out at 1200-1...

TheBlueRaja said...

Happy birthday, Phil. All the right people are glad you're here, and the only ones who maybe aren't are just who you'd wish. So that's a good thing.

Riiiiiiight . . . .

Anyway, I'll thank God for His grace in your life on this, the occasion of your 35th birthday.

Annette said...

happy birthday Phil, may you enjoy many more of them. :)

Andrew said...

happy birthday Phil,

see you in London some time.

Libbie said...

ah me, late again. Many happy returns, Phil.

(and Dan, I think the bedside manner of House is preferable to the waffle of Bertie Wooster and I know who Phil is more like...)

northWord said...

*Happy (belated) Birthday* Phil!!

Your articles here are always such a blessing to me, Thank you.

God Bless ~

Phil Johnson said...

Thanks.

Cindy Swanson said...

Sorry I missed this, Phil! Hope your birthday was outstanding. :)
