Liz's Birthday

How would you like to spend your 50th birthday?  I cannot think of a better way to start my day than to worship the Lord Jesus with the saints at my church.  What a glorious time we had, too!  We had the blessing of hearing Susie, who is home from college for the holidays, sing "Great Is Thy Faithfulness."

Then we had FOUR baptisms!  Three young men who have been raised in our church gave their testimonies of how they discovered their need for Jesus as not only their Savior but as their Lord.     

They were followed by Darren who has learned that following Jesus means giving 100% of his heart to the Lord.  What a great testimony!

Our dear friend Erich finished off the service with a terrific sermon from Colossians 3.

After church we drove up to El Cerrito for lunch with Grandma Nancy at the Macaroni Grill. We enjoyed delicious Italian food as well as our waiter Rico's singing of "Happy Birthday" in Italian.
