In time for Ruth's birthday last Tuesday and my sister' birthday yesterday we prepared a quite simple celebration for them in our church yesterday. We're going to be the host family for next week's bible study but we exchanged it so we can combine my two loved ones' birthday in our bible study. It's more of a thanksgiving occasion and we're happy that it falls exactly on a Wednesday.
Ruth and Redge used to set a date for them every year because they love having their dates of birthday in a row. When I was still pregnant Redge was hoping that I'll give birth to my first baby on her birthday but Ruth came out few hours before the date :-) I prepared and cooked the all-time favorite spaghetti, barbeque and brownies which were served after the bible study. We thanked God for the bountiful blessings bestowed upon us and we return them with gratitude through this thanksgiving.
