The day finally arrived. It was a wonderful day; I'll give you details tomorrow.
But it started off poorly, leaving for church half an hour late and running into red lights at every opportunity.
About half way to church, Mom said, half as joke, "That's enough, Satan!"
Do you know, we didn't hit another red light?
Starting with those green lights, God opened my eyes to a several unwrapped, unexpected gifts.
Colorado is in the midst of a record-breaking heat wave. I'm one of the few residents who would NOT welcome rain today; it rains almost every year on my birthday. Today it did NOT rain. I had that special treat, sunny skies all day.
We stayed for both Sunday school and the worship service for the first time in a month; Mom has been sick for the past three weeks. Now, there is a real reason to rejoice!
My granddaughter Savanna told me she loved me tonight. Jaran told me how rare that is, coming from a 12½ year old. And he's right. I remember those days! But she wished me a happy birthday and expressed her love.
Oh, and my beloved Rockies won, managing a split of their series with the Florida Marlins.
I'll give you details on the "planned" birthday activities tomorrow.
Thanks for all your love and caring. A computer crisis kept me from posting on Thursday night.
