My surprise baby shower (diary entry)
Today I experienced the love of God in a new dimension. I experienced it through the hands of selfless, loving, thoughtful and generous human beings.
My hubby had said we would go out on Sunday (today) for a dinner. Since it was valentine season, I was unsuspecting. After church, we went for grocery shopping, got back home, had lunch and were watching a favourite YouTube series. Then he informed me that we had to leave at 4:30pm. I put on my dress, applied a light make up and was set for the adventure.
He blindfolded me so I couldn’t guess the venue by the route he took. When we got there, there were already about 15 people gathered in the house of our friends, the Idahosas, with plenty of food, chewables, drinks, decorations and music. We played baby themed fun games and danced.
I was indeed pleasantly surprised.
I was reminded again the pleasant feeling of receiving gifts. I am challenged to be the one who gives people this feeling.
To all who planned, organised, honoured the invitation and brought gifts to celebrate the gift of a growing being in our lives, my prayer for you is that you will never lack help. You will always have love around you. My God will replenish your pockets. You will abound in abundance for every good work.
Thank you so much for your kindness.
