So, my wife got in cahoots with the worship staff at my church today. They surprised me with a Book Release Day Surprise Party. Again, as always, I was clueless. Walked right by this door of the normally-empty extra office before the party and didn't even see it:
I'm sharp, let me tell you. Nothing gets by me.
They had balloons...flowers...Popeye's Chicken...strawberry cake...Dr. Pepper...friends...family...
Popeye's Chicken, I said. My wife knows my love language.
It was a room full of happy. That's what it was.
Here's Mr. Dorky McClueless walking in:
I bet Max Lucado doesn't get Popeye's on his release days. So there.
The strawberry cake was a conduit of the glory of God.
I even got presents.
I'm so thankful for the sweet people in this picture...and so many more, who have made me feel so special this week and always. Thank you so much!
