My day started with an early wake up call from the Lord. Apparently He did not want me to miss a single moment of my birthday, so I was up at 6. Because of this I decided to go to first service, which is a rare occasion for me. As I was driving to church, I had the thought that it would be a great birthday surprise if we could sing "And Can It Be" which is my favorite hymn. I arrived to church a little late, and as I was walking in, guess what I heard coming from the sanctuary!!! I was sad to miss the first verse, but oh so excited to sing the rest. And, since the Lord woke me up early, I hung around after Sunday School so I could sing it in second service too! I didn't take very many pictures of my day. I almost snapped a picture during church just because I felt so blessed to be in church on my birthday. Sometimes, my actual birthday is a little of a let down because I am around people for the 4th and then sometimes am at home by myself most of my actual birthday. But today, I got to celebrate my birthday amidst my church family.
After church, Emily and Sarah and I went to Red Robin for lunch. Yummy!
And the rest of the day, I relaxed on the couch. And refused to do anything productive.
This evening, I got a surprise visit from friends that included flowers! I love my friends!
I took tomorrow off, so my birthday weekend continues a little relaxation and more free birthday food. I think tomorrow is going to be free fries from Wing Stop. And I'm going to get a free adjustment at the chiropractor, because even the chiropractor likes to celebrate my birthday!
