The Best Birthday Gift Ever

When it comes to birthday gifts, I have received some pretty good ones over the past 39 years. However, two weeks ago I got the best birthday gift ever. It wasn’t the latest iPhone, a new truck, or even plane tickets to Hawaii. It was something better, that put joy deep within my heart which will last for quite awhile. As Dan would say “If I’m lying I’m dying”.

What was it you ask? Singing praises with you, the youth group.

I was totally caught off guard by the surprise birthday party. Then to hear that for my birthday gift you all wanted to sing with me. Well, that was pretty amazing! What better gift than to lift the sacrifice of our lips up to the Lord together, praising Him & sharing joy with each other.

A big public shout out & thank you to our youth group. I’m thankful for each and every one of you, and honored to serve you as we work to serve Him.

Shout joyfully to the Lord, all the earth. Serve the Lord with gladness; Come before Him with joyful singing. - Psalms 100

Below is not the birthday singing they surprised me with, but a Facebook Live recording of our November singing. Absolutely love singing with this group.
