Passion is a gritty kind of love, tough and

optimistic enthusiasm that overcomes negativity and inconvenience to make it

through to the end. (10,000 Reasons Overflow)

Yesterday was Phyllis’s b-day, she turned 18. I can’t believe that 18 years ago, I felt more love than I would ever be able to hold.
A couple times yesterday I caught myself getting misty. How blessed am I to have such a beautiful loving daughter who loves Jesus. Oh by the grace of God go I.
I was a spaz at Panera bread yesterday trying to orchestrate this great surprise party for her. Like 18 peeps who love us. She thought she was going to have a lame birthday, but nope. I surprised her with some of her friends from school, a few family members, our church family. Balloons! Panera! And LOVE! Silly, I know. 18 years old and balloons everywhere. I saw more people roll their eyes at me, I don’t care. She’s beautiful, I love her, and I’d do it all over again!
She’s amazing.
I’m blessed.
God is good.

Phil 4:20 To our God and Father be glory for ever and ever. Amen
