Well, I hope I haven’t bitten off more than I can chew, but we are going to try to have Olivia’s birthday party tonight.

Last Friday I just wasn’t ready.

We’re having our first ever murder mystery dinner party., entitled, “The Love Letter.”  We ordered online, and if you are looking for something a little different for a party just google it murder mystery games.  You will find so many different options!

All of the girls will be arriving in costumes for an 1807 dinner party.

A friend is going to drive me to the store today to get some last minute supplies, and my brother and his wife are coming from Louisville to help me.

It’s amazing how much work goes into a party.

Invitations, planning, getting the food ready, etc.

I keep thinking about the time not long before Jesus’ death when he told the disciples,

John 14:1-3

“Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me.  In my Father’s house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you.  And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.”

It comforts me today to know that as I am trying to get ready for a simple little birthday party, I have a Savior who is getting ready for a GREAT BIG RETURN TO TAKE US HOME!!!

We’ve all been sent invitations to His great banqueting table through His Word.

I hope you have accepted the invitation and are ready for His return!

If not, please do so today!

All My Love,
