Terry is the one who always says we have to have a week (or month) celebration for my birthday -- but his year -- his actually did span a week. Marshall and Katie came to town hoping to be here for the Church's First Sunday, but inspections put that off for a few days. . . last Sunday they helped him blow out his candles and enjoy his German Chocolate B.Day cake.
Yesterday on his 63rd birthday, we were given the Letter of Occupancy stating that we were now able to move into our new Church home. As we were enjoying a dinner at Red Lobster , I reminded him that God could have done it either on Wednesday or today-- but He made it happen on his birthday.
A dream that Terry had hoped for over a long period of time. How like God to be in the infinite details to pour out his love and affirmation.
Later that evening his birthday was made complete as we circled with our youth group behind the Church building for a night of praise and saw the most beautiful angelic praise dance in the light of a full moon.
