If you read Mile Markers Monday, then you know that Monday was KJo's wedding anniversary. She married the first time on June 29, 1985.😀 We have celebrated most of our wedding anniversaries in revival, camp meeting or youth camp so they are usually very low key. This year we moved uptown, even though we were in revival.
Pastor Tom Goodwin treated us to a Brazillian Steakhouse named Fogo De Chao. Wow! We have been to Rodizio, another Brazillian Steakhouse, in Denver, Nashville and the Cincinnati area. We really love Rodizio and we hope to return there whenever possible, but Fogo De Chao is excellent too. It may be even more excellent.
It was awesome on Monday. The food was great, the service was great and they were taking all kinds of precautions to keep themselves and the customers safe. We really liked the whole experience.
The church presented us with a card and KJo with a beautiful bouquet of roses Monday night.
Here she is with her roses Thursday night with her new hat too.
The week of our anniversary is always an extra special week, because Kelly Jo has her birthday shortly after. We married four days before her birthday, so her birthday always follows close to the anniversary.
KJo's birthday is usually a muted celebration too, because we are usually in some type of meeting. This week we closed revival Wednesday so we do not have church tonight, although we do have a service this morning in India over Zoom.
The rest of the day will be available for KJo to eat, sleep and relax with family and friends. She loves to shop in the Dallas area, but now is not the best time to be mingling with crowds. She will probably skip the shopping.
Two years ago, Odie ask several folks to write something for KJo on her 50th birthday and we posted it all here on Mile Markers. I was reading through it this week and I was weeping most of the time. KJo has not only influenced our lives for the better, but she has impacted many other lives.
HERE is the link to that post. It is worth a few minutes of your time to read some of it. My brother Steve's tribute to Kelly Jo brings me to tears each time I read it. Some of the others do too.
Thank you for joining us today and we would love it if you would take a few minutes to send birthday greetings to our precious Kelly Jo.
Happy Birthday, KJo. I love you, sweetheart, and wish you all the best!
