Some changes in profile
My husband, John really created a dramatic birthday surprise for me a couple of nights ago. He tricked me! Here is how he did it: The ladies in my "Sunday School" class started passing around a sign-up sheet for a "ladies night out" about 3 weeks ago. (This was all part of John’s plan.) The lady organizing it said we would go out to dinner and then go for a walk together at the local metropark. There were about 9 of us women and we got to the metropark and started walking. Then, we turned a corner and … shazaam! There were about 75 people standing under one of the picnic table/shelters all saying "SURPRISE!" to me. My reaction was so silly - I ran behind a bush and hid. Then, I came out as they were singing “Happy Birthday”, and my surprise just kept unfolding as I saw people from several different parts of my world - like friends from church, my family, John's family, neighbors, Sunday School class etc... It was so unexpected ... it shocked me!
My face was red for 5 solid minutes, according to my brother.
Speaking of surprises, my profile is changing in another way, too. No, I don’t mean my blogger profile. I am talking about “profile” as in the view of someone from the side. My abdomen is becoming rather “swollen” because John and I have the #4 child on the way! This blessing will come to us right around Christmas … we have about 4 months to go. Wow. This must be God’s plan because it certainly wasn’t ours! This was quite a surprise!
Life is just full of surprises ... and changes in profile!
