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.
