This month has been a whirlwind! The weekend before last was my birthday and it was amazing! We celebrated all weekend long! On Friday my honey took me out to eat at our favorite restaurant, Kona Grill, and we had the most wonderful meal. We laughed like two school kids over jokes and stories and it felt so good to just be together. Then he took me to the mall and let me browse for two hours (I say "browse" because it usually takes me almost two hours before I can convince myself to buy anything! ha!) He really loves me. A lot.
Then, on Saturday, the girls in our youth group threw me a surprise birthday party! I have to say, it was nothing less than amazing! Georgia and Rebecca came to my house earlier that morning and cleaned my entire house, baked me a pretty cake, made me a banner, fixed yummy red beans and rice for the party, invited some of the youth group, and then surprised my socks off!! I really, really love these guys. God has blessed us with some wonderful youth leaders and young people with a desire to serve Him! It's just so incredible to watch them grow in the grace of God and so humbling to be a recipient of their servant hearts!
Of course, such a wonderful weekend couldn't end on Saturday. We celebrated my birthday again on Sunday at my mother in love's house with a delicious fresh strawberry cake and seafood gumbo! It was the most incredible birthday weekend.
I feel so very loved and not one bit older.
And that is the way every birthday should be.
