Yes..and my Dr. (who ordered me to stay in the wheel chair all night long)
These crazy girls along with 45 or so of the ladies in the church showed up to give me a really special welcome into the 4th decade of my life. Here's a glimpse into the evening:
We played some games....including "Are you smarter than a first grader". And there was poetry and music from the 70's.
I was given some charming accessories...what girl doesn't like that?!
Lasagna and all the sides were served
And of course...cake
And a very special devotion on the faithfulness of God.
Then this company of godly ladies gathered around and said a prayer over me. And that perhaps, was the best gift of all...That you are loved enough to be taken to the feet of Jesus and prayed over is a gift that I'll never forget. How blessed am I?
And one of my favorite parts of the party was when they told me what my "real" gift was...
They had all brought food to donate to our food pantry at church! This was such a thoughtful gift...knowing that our food pantry is so close to my heart.
So, thanks Ladies of CBC. You made turning the new 30 easier than I could have ever imagined! I know lots of hard work and effort went into making it a night I will never forget! I think you successfully accomplished that!
