Jill’s Birthday

Today was my 31st birthday and I had a WONDERFUL day.  I really think this was one of my favorite birthdays. 

It was a very special day in the life of our church, South Tulsa Baptist Church.  We had a very special service at church this morning to dedicate our beautiful new building.  I have attended this church since I was a newborn, so it was really neat to look back on how far the church has come.  This church truly is my second home.   So many great memories were made for me here: being saved as a little girl, my baptism, youth group events,  my wedding, baby dedication for Emma, and the list goes on and on.

Here are a couple of pictures that I took during the service today.  They estimated that we had around 1100-1300 people there. There are 100 people in the choir!  WOW, we’ve come a long way!

After the dedication service, we went to Genghis Grill with my family for lunch.  I love this restaurant.  It’s new to Tulsa but we have been to the one in Arlington several times.  I’m so glad that we finally have one here! 

Here I am with mom after unwrapping this scarf that she gave me for my birthday.  She had to show me how to put it on. :)

I had a long nap after lunch, I just love Sunday afternoon naps.

Tonight we went back to the church for a performance by our church choir called “Sanctuary.”  I think I got goose bumps about 27 times, it was so awesome. 

After church we came home and watched the Cowboys game. 

I’d call that a pretty good day.  Thanks to my family for making my birthday special.
