Gavin’s Bonfire Blowout!


Tonight was the night! It actually happened, people! After the weekend of the puking human volcano…..and missing his big graduation celebration party….we were beginning to doubt he would ever have a successful party. Oh but have no fear! God had other plans, oh yes he did.

I couldn’t sleep last night. Gavin decided to buddy up with several guys that live in the same neighborhood across town for a sleepover. I’m usually pretty cool about that sort of thing. But for some reason, I just couldn’t relax and go to sleep. I prayed as I laid there with my eyes popping open that God would keep him safe wherever he was. My head started hurting then my back…..before I knew it I was aching all over (I think because I was stressing out). So much has happened in the last week or so. I really wanted him to have a great party.

This morning a raging thunderstorm was my wake up noise. I mean it was raining buckets. I wanted to cry. It’s the reschedule day for the party and I worried that once again….we might have to cancel. I prayed again and just let it alone. God doesn’t need my assistance anyway. He’s got it under control!

He proved that. Tonight’s party was a great success. Everybody seemed to have a fun time including Gavin. He was surrounded by sweet friends and a big honking fire! Gotta love those pyromaniacs! Oh and that cake? Ooo la la! It was perfectly delicious! Just like I imagined it being the last 3 days. Yum yum!

Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own. (Matthew 6:34)
