Stronger than surprise?


More to come on this later, but let me share briefly. Thursday night I was excited to pick up a friend from the airport, we got home around 1 in the morning. Imagine my surprise to find three MORE friends scattered in various places throughout the house! 4 of my dear friends had flown in to surprise me for my 40th birthday. I was in utter shock and could barely comprehend what I was seeing. Each room I walked into contained a new person…What a weekend of shrieking laughter, deep talks, and heart healing. It was incredible. One of the amazing parts is how they got here. None of has had money to travel, one generous friend did some digging and found enough flier miles to get them all here for hardly any cash. Surprise after surprise waited this weekend. Stay tuned for more details and pictures. God is so good, only He could have orchestrated the events that unfolded.
