This morning I went to Sunday School class where I am the teacher of a nice group of Spanish speaking people.
There was a nice group of people and the room was full.
I did notice one of the ladies sneaking around to all of them and doing something under the table with each one.
So I thought, "they are signing a card for me. How nice."
I love cards with lots of signatures and a little something written under the signature.
Class went on and was over and the lady came over and presented me with a thick envelope. I opened it. Now I knew there was money in it.
Each had signed it and wrote something nice in it and put a small gift in it.
It added up to a nice gift.
I said I'm taking a vacation. (Not enough for that).
They are the nicest people.
No cake, no candy, no ice cream, etc.
So I think that is the end of birthday for this year except for a girl friend who is going to take me out to eat when I want to go and where I want to go.
Now about the
They did have a lunch after morning service for Pastor's appreciation. The plates were served and food in our area is short of veggies and fruits.
The menu was brisket (with sweet barbeque sauce) potato salad, fried rice, and beans with 2 slices of bread (white) and sweet tea (which is usual for this part of the country) and cake.
For you who are holding me accountable I gave away the bread and the cake, left part of the rice and potato salad and ate the brisket, beans and part of the rice and potato salad.
So I didn't do too bad, did I?
The Bible does say to eat what is set before you but one lady wanted the extra 2 slices of bread and a young teen ager was happy to get the cake.
Oh yes, I did drink about half a cup of the tea.
It was such a beautiful service for the pastor. We also had baptisms and so many good things.
So now I do think this is the end of the birthday bashes.
