More birthday stuff

We ate Sunday lunch last week at the Correas' home - for dessert they had 2 special treats: carrot cake and lemon pie. They were delicious, especially the lemon pie. Everyone sang happy birthday to me - in both languages!

A birthday custom in our churches here in Mexico: I was asked to come to the front of the church after Sunday school last Sunday so everyone could sing happy birthday to me, pray a special prayer of blessing over me, and file around to shake my hand, give me a hug and wish me happy birthday. So sweet!

Marc brought me beautiful roses a couple days after my birthday - I loved them. Thanks, honey. Love you.

What a sweet thing to do for your B-day! Glad you all are back and in the swing of "normal" life!! Thanks for the notes of prayers for Andrea! Troy is on his way to pick us up and take us back home!
Hope you have a great week!
