A driver who has often given me a ride to work in the mornings invited me to the first birthday party of his baby daughter. He came with his brother-in-law to pick me up at 5:00 p.m. on Saturday. I arrived at the party just in time to hold the birthday girl as the guests sang happy birthday to her, gathered around the table with an ornate cake. Afterwards, the many neighborhood children at the celebration devoured their plate-fulls of sweets and played merrily in two bounce-houses. The host couple introduced me to their relatives, with whom I enjoyed dinner and conversation until one of them gave me a ride home around 8:00 p.m. It’s a blessing to be part of people’s lives and take advantage of various opportunities that arise to speak of Christ to those around me.
