Visitors from the church on the rock
This past week was my birthday, the 12th, and Brandi's birthday, the 17th, and this week is Mary Kathleen's birthday, the 21st. Our friends from the church on the rock came to our house Sunday the 12th to celebrate with us our birthdays and spend some time together. But something unexpected happened that morning at church with Brandi. She had to leave church and go to the hospital to get some oxygen and an anti-inflammatory shot because her throat was swelling up and she was loosing the ability to speak and move her arms and legs. I know...you're probably thinking what a break for the husband but this was more serious so we can't go there. I did mention that though while in the ER and got a smile from Brandi. I know....but we'll keep going with the story. Despite all that was happening the church insisted on coming to our house and celebrating with us because they had already rented a bus, prepared the food, and bought a cake. And these people do not have money and work to make it day to day. So we couldn't say no even though we were overwhelmed and thought it best not to. But look what a good time we had with them! They fed us some delicious food and an amazing cake! They were not anything overwhelming but very relaxing and encouraging to us all! We had the best time laughing and listening to words of encouragement from all of them. The kids were playing with the other kids from the church...I don't remember seeing Uriah the whole time because the ladies from the church were passing him around and adoring him the whole time! And Uriah loves it!! We only had to get the oxygen tank out once for Brandi and after two more tranquilizers, she was good. HAHA Just joking!! Brandi sat and enjoyed the company and was encouraged! I KNOW that what we thought was too much and overwhelming God had already lined it up to be ready to encourage us and strengthen us before we even knew we were going to need it!! God is so good!! So we are very thankful for our friends and church family from Salfate and really don't know how it would have ended up if they had not come and loved on us! There you go...
