Big Blog Birthday Bash Happy 50th Birthday Kelly Jo

Hey Friends,

This is Odie checking in from Wichita, Kansas. I have been working on this post for a few weeks. I am glad that I can share it with you now.

Are you ready to celebrate? There is a big birthday in a few days on the BoggsMobile and things are going to be crazy on the actual day, Wednesday July 3rd. We should be setting up the tent that day in Colorado Springs. I decided to have a Blog Birthday Bash early. 

My Mama deserves to be celebrated every day!! Every one who knows Kelly Jo Boggs knows she is a jewel! July 3rd 1968 a firecrackers was born. The world became better because Kelly Jo ”Morgan” Boggs was alive and kicking. 

I can not gather everyone for an actual party, but this is 2018 so we are going virtual. I can not provide cake for all of you, but here is the digital version. πŸ˜€ 

I reached out to family and friends across the nation and they have contributed to this post. Thanks to everyone for your awesome help. 

Grab a drink and a chair and enjoy this special birthday tribute to Kelly Jo Boggs. I will go firsrt.


Your birthday is upon us, it is the 11th anniversary of your 39th birthday. You truly are 50 and Fabulous!! They say some things in life are better with age and you get more and more awesome with age. I have had a front row seat to watch you become who you are today. You truly are Godly, amazing, wonderful, beautiful and a thousand more things. 

I am proud to call you, Kelly Jo Boggs, my Mom! I am the only person who truly gets that honor. As a child I heard other kids wishing they had a different Mom, but I knew I had the best!! I love so much!! 

Mother, you gave me life. From the beginning I have been learning from you. You taught me how to love, respect, to pray and you showed me by example how to overcome the obstacles of life. You taught me to keep getting back up and facing life again. You were and are an incredible teacher.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for keeping Boggs Family Ministries and our family together. We would be rich if we could bottle the "Kelly Jo Boggs glue." It is a glue that sticks and holds like no other glue around. 

I truly appreciate your God-given talent! Thank for teaching me and sharing your love for music with me!

Happy 50th Birthday!!!

When Odie asked for comments concerning her mother on this notable occasion, I knew it would be a challenge to give a concise and pointed accounting of the character of this Godly woman. She's subtly intelligent, crafty and clever, still almost always rather reserved. 

First, one must recognize that it is impossible to separate Kelly Jo's life from that of her two charges. She is predominantly a caregiver who meets or exceeds the needs of Davy and Odie. 

Lest ye think she spends all her time on Odie, reconsider. My experiences with them are mostly while at or near home but I suspect those of you with them while they are on the road could also bear witness to these words. She is Davy's helpmeet every day and most moments in it. He calls her The Hardest Working Evangelist's Wife out there. I can't confirm that with my limited exposure but I do get to see her in action. She knows where or can find nearly any item she or Davy think they have or may need. Her servant's heart touches me often as I witness her earnest ways. 
I really don't know what all her chores behind the scenes on the Boggsmobile are. I can imagine that crafting a home life from diesel fumes, laundromats, water tanks of several varieties, generators, a tiny stove and fridge with minuscule bath amenities, all the while maintaining the capability to GO with little notice, is challenging! These likely daily concerns she carries in addition to the immediate and forthcoming needs of her fellow travelers. 

She has few peers at the piano. Her mastery of styles and seemingly effortless virtuosity is astounding to most anyone who follows her lead on a song. Her voice is strong and clear under the anointing her family is known for. Talent she uses for the glory of God. 
On a personal level, she is my very close friend. Truly, I love her as a sister. She is one more of many who prayed for and encouraged me in my years without the Lord. 

She made Karen and me welcome in her home as newlyweds. We five, with Odie, lived like kids. Pizza, work, church, friends, laugh, repeat. We were kids. I was the oldest at 24, we all had so much to learn and we have learned, mostly. 
Her playful personality is quick-witted and intelligent. She is kind, tries not to laugh aloud at fat jokes and finds beauty in nearly everyone. She loves words, their origins, meanings and usage, English or Spanish. She is good at accents and would make a jolly cute Brit. 

The thing that endears her to me most is her obvious love and dedication to my brother and my niece. She is ALWAYS trying to help or fulfill a need. If you're a fat guy and get too close she might hand you a bottle of water or try to tie your shoes. 
In summary, I am glad she joined our family. More so, I admire her heart for God. 
Sis. Kelly,
Here is someone who found the source of Joy, Jesus Christ, and experiences it in making Him known. Finding this true purpose of life makes her the soulmate of her husband, eminent mom to her daughter, and unforgettable friend to all who get a chance to meet her. 

Beloved sister Kelly, you are an aroma of Christ in its sublime meaning. Wish you a blessed and amazing birthday. May all your days be filled with goodness, warmth, and the abundance of the Love of Christ. HAPPY BIRTHDAY KELLY!!!
Sis. Binu Johnson 
Kelly Jo,
 I wish we would have met 25 years sooner. You came into my life just when I needed you. You’re the best friend and sister anyone could ask for. I hope you have a wonderful 50th birthday. You deserve it! I love you and miss you!

Sis. Kelly Jo,

Happy Birthday my friend! 
You are such an inspiration  to me. 

So Godly, talented  and beautiful I am on the verge of jealousy ... I wish you the best birthday  ever!  I can't believe we are 50! I remember  when we first me we were in our 20's. Wow a lot has taken place since then, but my favorite  of them all is when I see you all in your little green mobile parked at Tacos Tijuana! 😜Come have some for your birthday... Enjoy!  You deserve  it... Love you much!
Sis. Robin Munoz 
Happy Birthday, Kelly Jo!

I always enjoy being in service with you, and the times of fellowship we have afterward. Your family inspires and challenges mine. We are so thankful for your ministry and the heart you have for God and people. Hope you know what a blessing you are. May this year be one of the best yet!!!

Love always,

Happy birthday to my precious friend and cousin Sis. Kelly Jo! 
For as long as I can remember I’ve looked up to you and admired you! Mom was talking the other day about how the Lakes girls would gather around our piano at home and try to sing like Kelly 😁 I have always admired your talent and kindness over the years. 
So many memories singing at Dryden Road, whether it be with the choir, with your family or you on the piano, Bro Willie Daugherty on the guitar and Bro Sylvester Carpenter singing. My mom and you LOVED to give Bro Willie a hard time πŸ˜‚ Now it’s such such a blessing to see the lives you and your family touch, not only at DRPC but all over the country. 

Well, I could go on and on but I just wanted to give a special happy birthday wish to a very special person! Happy Birthday Sis Kelly!!! I love u so much! 
Sis. Sarah Boyd 
Happy 50th Birthday Kelly Jo!!!
Thanks for being the most awesome wife to my best friend!  And every time you fix fried taters, don’t forget who taught ya how to make em. :-)

My Dear Sis. Kelly
You have finally hit the half century milestone. 🧐 The BIG 5️⃣0️⃣. 
Well I have to say it’s not THAT bad I mean it’s bad but well you know. Anyway I hope you have as good of a day as you are a person because you’re are one of the sweetest, kindest, Godliest women I know and I’m so glad I can call you “my friend”. If you were here I would make you a cake but maybe next time you’re here I can do that for you. Happy 5️⃣0️⃣’th 
I love you Sis. πŸ˜‰
Sis. Mona Henderson

Dear Kelly,
To my friend of 20+ years, who sings and plays as no other. She is her own person and a beautiful one!  You are wearing 49.95 plus tax really well 😎😎😎😎😎. 

You are 5 perfect 10s today, and look as young and healthy as ever! 
Remember age is only a number, and I’ve read that it doesn’t matter unless you are a cheese 🀣..... of course I had to make this birthday message a little funny due to your awesome witty personality! 
Happy 50th Birthday!
Love bunches,
Rachel Thompson
Oh WOW, Sis Kelly, you’ve finally joined the “elite” group!! At this age we are just praising God we made it!! πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ™ŒπŸ» Happy Happy Birthday!! 

May God richly reward you for your work for Him, your sweet, loving spirit, your dedication, Godly example AND for putting up with our friend, Bro Davy!!! You complete him! 😍

You have always been such a God-given inspiration to us!! We are privileged to know you’re always in our corner and you’ve been there for us when we needed you!! Thank you and may God give you another 50 years at least BUT with many of them in that little cabin away from everybody/everything!!! 
Love you bunches!!
Sis. Karen Noe
Wow, it seems like yesterday when you were only 5 
16 came and went when you learned to drive 
Your parents were shocked how fast you had grown 
These years have Surely flown 
Never seemed possible you would reach this age 
You need your glasses now to turn to the right page 
You wonder why you can’t sleep till  noon 
Your back aches and morning can’t come to soon 
A few wrinkles on your face 
But how you wear  them with such grace
You may need to add fiber with dinner 
But for you sis kelly you never looked thinner 
Traveling days are here to stay 
But this is a good life 
For your sacrifice God will pay. 
Thank you for helping so many people 
A song -a word 
Came from under many a steeple 
Your sacrifice we thank you in a small way 
Hoping you have the best 50th birthday!! 
Sis. Kim Lloyd 
Sis. Kelly Boggs,
You have been and are such a special friend to me. The encouragement you’ve given me and the laughs we’ve shared is something I cherish. You’re always helping out wherever you are and you give so much to people.  Thank you for the time you’ve invested in ME personally! You are one of the people that gave me a passion for singing and because of that I am now a worship leader in my church! I appreciate the serious and the goofy moments we’ve had. May God bless you as much as you’ve blessed me! Happiest of birthdays!!!
Much love from your Dubsmash buddy,
Abigail Metzger 

Happy Birthday Sis Kelly!  
So, in just a few days, you will have been around a half century.  When you were born, there was no such thing as a cell phone or a PC or a laptop.  See, you’ve accomplished so much in those 50 years.  Now, all 3 of those things are a reality.  If Al Gore was responsible for the internet, obviously you must be responsible for those all-important modern conveniences.  Thank you so much.

Seriously, I appreciate you Sis. Kelly.  I have made the observation on more than one occasion that you are one of the most humble, unselfish, servant-hearted musical geniuses I have ever met.  Either you don’t know how musically gifted you are or you do a great job hiding that knowledge.  I always enjoy playing music with you because you make me sound better than I really am.

And to anyone who has watched you with your family, it is obvious that your life is not about you. The pattern of your life is to put them first.  The way in which you serve your family and others so unselfishly is a grand illustration of the manner in which you serve God.  Our lives are better because we know you.
WE LOVE YOU KELLY BOGGS!!! (You know whose voice is assumed there…)
Pastor Alan and Sis. Tammy Harris 
Happy 50th Birthday, Sis. Kelly!
You are such a Godly woman who I admire. I have watched you give and give and give, and you never get tired of giving. You are one of the most selfless people that I have ever met, and I am so blessed to have you as my friend. I hope that you have the best Birthday ever, you most certainly deserve it. 
We love you, 
Sis. Tina Stringfellow
The smartest decision that Davy made was marrying Kelly Jo. A wonderful example of an evangelist’s wife and mother. Hard working, talented, loyal, dedicated and a beautiful person inside and out. Happy 50th birthday Kelly! Hoping that this is the best year yet. 
Tonya Hibbitts 
Happy Happy 50th Birthday My Dear Friend Kelly Jo! I am wishing you a beautiful day! So thankful for the blessing you are! Love ya bunches,

To my wonderful sister: I can't put into words how much I love you. You are always able to make me laugh!  God has blessed us all with YOU!!!! Have a great day! Happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday Aunt Kelly,

¡Feliz cumpleaΓ±os, tΓ­a Kelly! ¡Espero que sea estupendo! De tu sobrina favorita,

HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I can’t believe it’s been that long since I spent most of the summer you were born with your mom and dad to help take care of you! I loved every minute of it, you’re such a wonderful person and I love you so much. Hope you have a great day. 
Aunt Deb 
Happy Birthday to one of the sweetest people, so many memories of this little blond headed girl from learning to drink from a straw at a very early age to flipping and flopping everywhere to growing up with a Godly talent like I have never seen before to a loving wife, mother, daughter, and niece. May your day be blessed and your years be many. I love you girl.

My sister...
Happy 50th Birthday. I love you Kelly.  I’m really not sure I remember life without you in many memories.  You’ve not only been a sister to me, but you’ve been there as an encourager, a friend, and yes...a mediator at times. Lol.   I love you and I hope this day brings to much joy and happiness.  

When you get to fifty, will you please run with it like there's a bear after you? I don't want to be able to catch up with you in a few monthsπŸ˜‰
Love you, Kelly!

Happy birthday to my beautiful, sweet, funny, and caring Aunt Kelly Jo! I am so thankful for all of the fun times and wonderful memories we have. I hope your day is super special! I love you! 
Hey Aunt Kelly, 
I  love you and happy birthday!!

Sis Kelly, 

Just wanted to take a moment to celebrate YOU on this special day. I hope you realize what a tremendous blessing you are in my life! As long as we've been friends, you have challenged and encouraged me in both ministry and music. always do it with such poise and grace! Getting to know your mischievous side has been a joy too, though. We have shared some great laughs with you guys! πŸ˜‚ Seems the pattern through the years has been God placing you near in our times of great need or crisis. I can honestly think of no one else I would rather have in my corner during a dark day than you, my friend. Your tender care and concern has meant more than you will ever know! Just knowing you were touching Heaven on my behalf has pulled me through several hard times. Hope you realize how much you are loved and what an impact you are making on lives like mine. Happiest of birthdays to you, my sweet friend! God bless you richly!!
Sis. Carla Martinez 
Kelly Jo you are an inspiration to us. I've called you my daughter for almost 30 yrs. I will never forget our lunches of pickles and potato chips. You're precious to me!!! 

Happy 50th Birthday!

“Happy 29th birthday” to a sweet cousin who I've always thought to be very beautiful, inside and out! I hope you get completely spoiled for your birthday, and if you get a cake with candles on it, don't count the candles because I'm sure somebody probably got it wrong ;) Love you Cubby!

In all seriousness, Happy Birthday to a special friend. Hope it’s a great one!
We love you!
Michael, Amanda and Myla Alexander
Happy Birthday to a wonderful little friend , whom I love dearly.  You are so kind, sweet, talented but very naughty from time to time! Wow, How you can play that piano like no one I’ve ever heard ! With those little fingers, so fast and smooth, not even marking a facial expression, turning boring services into a spirit of campmeeting, with  hand clapping, toe tapping and smiles all over the building! Your nature is calm as the Evening Sea but your humor, tricks and jokes cause big waves! Especially when your friends discover you always have a mouse in your purse , or a bug in your pocket, and who thinks to put a rubber band around the faucet so that when it’s turned on it sprays someone in the face?  Your creative, crafty and selfless life speaks volumes. You are a doer, a giver and a huge blessing to all of us that have the privilege of knowing you. Happy Birthday, Friend, I love you! 
Sis. Shea Boyd 
Happy Birthday Sis Kelly, 
You make turning 50 look easy! We hope this next year is one of the best you've ever had. We love and appreciate you. You are a wonderful example of a Godly woman and an inspiration to us. God brought you into our lives just at the right time and we are so thankful that He did. It is privilege to call you friend. 
Dale and Crystal Spencer and Boys
Happiest of Birthdays to the legend, the one and only, the piano extraordinaire, the fabulous, Kelly Boggs! You are a pleasure to know even if you are a bit "staunch" (inside joke). I pray this is your best year yet! 
Much love and respect, 
Whitney Savage Tinnin

Happiest of Birthdays, Sis Kelly!!! 
May God add more and more years of endless joy and love to your life. You have been such a blessing and inspiration to me and many others. Love and appreciate you!! 
Sis. Lori Metheny
To Kelly,
Some of my greatest childhood memories were walking into our church and seeing that you and your family were there to be in service with us. It was always such an honor to worship with you all. I have played with many musicians (including professional, studio musicians) and none of them compare to the joy I feel when I get to play with you. Your God-given gifts of singing and playing are second to none! Better yet is the humility and love for God’s people that you always show. I pray you have the best birthday and year that you’ve ever had. Can’t wait to worship with you all again soon! 
Happy Birthday!!!
Josh Eason 
Happy Birthday to an incredibly talented and anointed musician. Without you pouring your chord knowledge into my life I would have never known the flat 3 existed! Thank you for all the lessons over the years. Hope it’s your best birthday yet. 
Jason Eason 
Kelly Jo,
It's hard to believe you are 50!!!!  Where do I begin?  As children, our families would visit each other and you and I would play together.  We had the same bus stop for a while and if you weren't out there in the morning, I knew you probably were having an asthma attack.  :(  We would also "play church" in the back of the church while service was going on.  We would shout like Sister "so and so" and preach like Brother "so and so".  As we got a little older, when the church doors opened, we would try to see who could get to the piano first to practice before church would start.  (You obviously got there quicker than I did because you play so much better than I do; I love to hear you play the piano).  :)  As teenagers we would wear each others clothes at church camp.  Then, somehow or another (I forget how) we introduced you to Davy.  You guys hit it off great and before we knew it, I was your maid of honor. Then you sang at our wedding the next year. 

Since that time, I've just been trying to keep up with what state or country you guys are in and try to see you, if possible, when you are in town.  :)  I'm so thankful for your and Davy and Odie's ministry; you all have blessed so many people and have changed so many lives; your reward will be great.  

The last 50 years have gone by so fast, but I'm so glad that the Lord let our paths cross at such a young age.  I love you very much.  You are, and will always be, very special to me.  I hope you have a WONDERFUL 50th Birthday.  I love you bunches, Your Cousin, Your Sister in the Lord and Your Friend, 
Charlene Purkey
Kelly Jo,
Happy birthday to an amazing woman of God that I admire very much. You exemplify Our Lord by your love, kindness, grace, patience, wisdom, joy, gentleness, meekness, faithfulness, sweetness, perceptiveness and the calming effect you bring to situations. 

Have a blessed birthday and an extraordinary year. 

On your day sit back, relax and although it is difficult for you, let others serve you!
Happy, Happy Birthday!
Much love,
Esther Richards 
50? No way! Kelly I am so proud of you.I love you very much and think of you often. You are a blessing to me. Have a great birthday. I love you.

Dear Cousin Kelly,
I hope you have a wonderful birthday! I can’t believe you are going to be 50! I’m right behind you πŸ€—I think of you often. Lots of good memories πŸ’•
Love and prayers, 
Sis Kelly is celebrating a mile stone in her life. Through the years she has gleaned a wealth of knowledge and experience by the many people she has encountered and the various places she has been. This is part of what has made her an example to me. The Bible says that we should follow those that follow Christ. I have enjoyed her wit and laughter; her solemn devotion and dedication. But most of all the sensitivity she has as she ministers because that is the sum purpose of her life. A life well spent! Happy Birthday!

Sis. Kelly,

Happy Birthday dear friend❤️
 Hm.. I hear your officially old haha.. JK.. When Odie asked me to write something, a million things started flooding my mind.. lots of memories! However, I must keep it condensed! My naturally introverted pal who steps into the world of an extrovert and always takes time for me, to make me feel loved! One of my favorite people on the planet..and no, that list isn’t nearly as long as people think lol.. I enjoy our visits and random talks..And sharing a deep love for Stein Mart and it’s awesomeness!!! 
My hope and wish for today, as your friends and family celebrate the gift of you.. That you realize just how valuable and amazing you truly are!!! You have a unique way of making others feel like they are someone!! You can be called on any time and are always willing to offer a listening ear, prayer, words of encouragement, and have a hug that makes  things feel okay even if they aren’t.. You can make people smile/laugh, when they otherwise feel like crying.. Your witty and funny.. And awesome to hang with!! We always have fun!!! 
My life is truly enriched by knowing you!!! I will be forever grateful that the Lord placed your friendship in my life.. It’s a strength and blessing that is valued more than you could ever know!!! Thanks for always being here for me and loving me! 

Feliz CumpleaΓ±os (Happy Birthday) 
te quiero mucho  (I love you very much)
I must make a visit soon! Its overdue and we need to celebrate!!!
To my friend Odie's Mom, 
I love you so much! You have helped me so much thru the years. Inspired me to sing with my heart, be a good wife and more recently you have helped me in the darkest trial I have ever walked thru.  

You are a wonderful woman and mother. May your birthday be most special!

Ole King Cole was a jolly ole soul...
But never as jolly as Sis. Kelly Jo...
She tickles the ivory better than Liberace...
Smokin' the piano like fried rice from a Hibachi...
Singin' her heart out night after night...
Beside her preacher man fightin' the fight...
Yeah shes a straight shooter like Dusty n Lefty...
But her draws a little slow and her aim a little shaky...
She's a "real lady" that Kelly Jo...
But shes an "older lady" cuz she turned FIVE OπŸ‘΅
