Surprise Baby Shower for Kelly
We just got back from a very special moment. Our small group (Kairos) at church threw a surprise baby shower for Kelly! It was special cause we are still “new” in our community and it was a total surprise! I was touched by it when I found out and kept it a secret… and then when I took Kelly there, she was so surprised and happy that she started to cry! I didn't have much of a role except for keeping it a secret but still I felt I was part of the surprise and was really really happy when I saw Kelly happy.
It was meaningful cause Kelly had mentioned to me before she was kind of sad that having a baby shower in Los Angeles may not happen cause almost all of her good friends are in Vancouver. So when this happened, it WAS REALLY MEANINGFUL AND SPECIAL! THANK YOU EVERYONE!
This baby shower reminded me of something that I want to share…
What is even better than to receive something cool?! … what's better is the GIVING and the feeling of seeing someone happy after they receive your gift. I can remember countless times when I was sooo much happier to give than to receive.
Jesus was right… if you want to receive more in life, you simply have to GIVE MORE!
