A very Happy Birthday...

I'm not one for birthdays. I've had some pretty not cool stuff happen to me on my birthdays, like throwing up in front of a whole group of people, having a tooth extracted, failing and ECE 110 test and getting stuck on the bus for an hour... really, not very much fun. So I don't always look forward to birthdays. I'm also not much the fan of drawing attention to myself because that just isn't who I am, and birthdays tend to be days that you do have attention drawn to yourself.

So this morning started out and I had to give announcements at church. One of my contacts must have fallen out somewhere between my bathroom and the door, so I was all disoriented. Thankfully it is was the eye I don't use. I got to church, got through 2 services without my birthday being announced, then the associate pastor announced it in the 3rd. I was all like drat so I got out of there quick and headed to lunch. We went to Mimi's cafe which was ok but overpriced and the service wasn't so great. I got home and got a phone call that two friends wanted to take me out and not let me sit around by myself all day. I agreed, and we were to meet to go bowling at 4. Well I get there, and not only do they show up but they brought an entourage of other people from counterculture with them. It was really sweet. They even brought a cake and we had a grand old time bowling and then hanging out afterwards. It was definitely good times and maybe the turnaround to horrible no good very bad birthdays.

When you are involved in ministry one of the easiest temptations to fall into is that "I don't need any help" but to be honest, we all do. Birthdays are an easy way to let those with and to who we minister, minister to and with us. Hmm, not only convoluted sentances but somwhat of a sermon. Ah well, vocational aptitude.
