From The Word

  • Matthew 18:2-5
    "And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them, And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven. And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me."

A wonderful party for a wonderful lady! It looks like everyone had a great time. Those cupcake toppers look so cute. You girls and guy (can't forget Jonathan) did a great job surprising your mom. I'm glad your dad got to pop in for a little bit too.


Leslie W looked like so much fun! I would have loved to have seen you surprised! ((hug))

You have a wonderful family, Deb....with so many friends who love you. You are a blessed woman indeed, my friend!


What an enjoyable read. It's pretty amazing how the fam was able to keep it under wraps...storing 90 cupcakes, undetected, is/was quite a feat. It will be interesting to see how everyone will top this one...on your 61st!


Love it! Love it! Love it! Everything worked out so perfectly, and no one deserves all those special treats than you, Deb! I know you especially loved that hymn sing, and that quilt - how beautiful and special for you! Happy, happy birthday, my friend. My prayer is that God will bless you with a wonderful year and bring you many more years of blessings!


Wow, now that's a celebration! Well pulled off everyone.

What a spectacular post! I love how it's written from all the different perspectives. I can't believe your girls backed 90 cupcakes and hid them from you! I love how they turned out and the little toppers you put on them. What a great day! You totally deserve it, Deb! I hope you had the most wonderful birthday celebration ever!


So wonderful to read of how you were surrounded with love and treats on your birthday! Thanks everyone for sharing. I am the same as you Deb and LOVE to have something of spiritual significance at celebrations - hymn singing sounds idyllic.


Wow! What a wonderful surprise! I'm just sorry that the storm prevented us from being sad for us! But the pictures are great & hearing how it all came to together was so much fun! So thankful for your friendship through the years. Love ya!


Happy birthday! What a sweet surprise your family planned!


You are blessed.
Great surprise!
Happy 60!!


Unbelievable! What a wonderful family you have to plan this great surprise. I'm so sorry I live far away- I would have loved to be there for this. The photos are fabulous-- and it was just ingenuous to tell the story from everybody's point of view!!!

Happy Birthday dear Deb!

Amy, a redeemed sheep

You are very richly blessed...I adore your new quilt! What a great gift!
