Graham is celebrating with his family at his home in Montreat, North Carolina.

Graham will be given a book full of well wishes from people all over the world who have been touched by his ministry.

He will also get several video greetings from his longtime associates and Christian music's top artists alike including Michael W. Smith, Steven Curtis Chapman, and TobyMac.

"Hey, Dr. Graham, as you told me to call you when I was at your house -- Billy, this is TobyMac from dcTalk, and I just wanted to say thank you, man, for always encouraging us to know what matters, to go out there and use my music to tell kids about Jesus," TobyMac said.

"The Chapman family, I speak for my whole family, just saying how grateful we are for you, and thankful to our Father for giving us you for these 90 years," saidlSteven Curtis Chapman.

Graham posted his own message on the Billy Graham Evangelistic Ministry's Web site.

He says he "never expected to live this long" but he adds, "every day is a gift from God, no matter how old we are."
