I began my morning early, 5:30am, I know, yes, it was an early rise, I had to be out the door this morning by 8:15am so getting up at 5:30 was needed. I wanted to have my shower, breakfast and my devotional time before heading out, as it turned out I got all my Devotional and Bible reading done and wrote in my journal but didn't finish my prayer time, however I got in a good time once I arrived at Church.
Besides being on the Worship Team this morning it was Missions Sunday and I brought an update on one of our Missionaries our Church supports, the message our Pastor preached was Missions minded and was powerful.
After the service my ride was late which was a good thing, why?? The Youth group meets after Morning Worship and has lunch together before heading into their own Worship service, and believe me it is one powerful service, our young people sure love to Worship and our Youth Pastor is so on fire for God, anyway I was sitting waiting for my ride and was invited to have some lunch with the group, of course this gal would not say no, especially when they were having pizza, so I indulged with a slice of all meat pizza, yum yum, I told them if they ate like this every week this gal was going to become a youth and join them, I got a few chuckles over that one.
When I came out to watch for my ride I noticed a gift and card on the table with my name on it, a birthday gift from my Secret Sister, I was spoiled, the gift bag held 2 tubes of luscious Spa Body Lotion/ Scrub & Polish...wow what a treat...I also got another gift from my very close friend, Jean, we share the same birthday both of us born on October 5th...I received a package of 4 Gourmet Brownies, different flavors and a beautiful card, wow, spoiled or what...
My kids are taking me out on Wednesday my actual Birthday and my friend Sheila is taking me for lunch on Thursday. The following Saturday my friend's are taking me for a Chinese Dinner Birthday party...My goodness, this gal is being spoiled this month, Thank you Jesus...
So there you have it, the start of my Birthday week and my Sunday Blessings..
Hope your day has been blessed and you have a great week a head... Keep on Sparking and Keep on Shining for Jesus!
