A Surprise Party!

With the help of many a surprised birthday party was planned for Jeremiah's big 3-0! When Jeremiah  went to the gym the house was decorated and food was prepared. Jeremiah is always helping others so it was fun to see everyone working together to help make it a special day for him.

When he came home SURPRISE!!! We let him shower before we began...

Many people had different activities planned to entertain the group. Some sang songs...

While others wrote poems for him.

Gifts were given...

some were bought, some were made, and one was painted!
There was dancing, too!

We were given a speech by Fredrick Takem who Jeremiah has Bible studies with. The other man is a neighbor who gave a toast with sparkling grape juice. It was encouraging to hear the positive things everyone said about my husband to let him know he is appreciated.

Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your toil is not in vain in the Lord." I Corinthians 15:58

I didn't get a picture of the food but we had accra banana (banana and cocoyam that has been mashed and put into balls to fry), Auntie's special fried rice, chicken and cake! This is the clean up crew.

I tease Jeremiah about being an old man now but when I think about the many things God has accomplished through him already- in just 30 years on earth I am truly amazed. He is still goal driven and has written down goals for the next decade of his life and I pray I can be a good helpmate to him throughout. What an amazing husband, father, brother in Christ, and worker for the Lord!
