Saturday night we had our monthly Adult Fellowship (40& over) at church. We meet once a month and eat and play games and have a great time. We usually play music and sing afterwards and always have the best time. My father-n-laws's birthday is tomorrow, so the group decided to surprise him and give him a birthday cake and money from all of us. It's hard to surprise him because it's common knowledge that a church will celebrate their Pastor's birthday, and with his birthday being on a Wednesday this year and our mid week church service being on a Wednesday, well not much of a surprise. But surprise him we did Saturday night! He's worthy of being celebrated twice in a week!
The only question he had was 'Why is there only four candles on his cake?' The answer that came was..."They were pretty sure he had enough strength to blow out four candles...the real number...not so sure about that many candles!"
It was so great to see him smiling and in better health! He's been very ill and not able to eat much for the last three months. He was in rare form and eating well, laughing much, and picking on people. I'm thankful that he is improving more each day! We have missed him at our church functions.
We love you 'Pops' and are so happy to see you feeling better each day.
So, Happy Birthday to a great man! May health and happiness shine on you this year...You deserve it!
