We had a wonderful day for a baby shower for Bethany Early on Saturday, March 25, 2017. We learned that this day is Bethany's birthday, and it is also the day that Jeff asked her to marry him five years ago! There were a number of ladies and children who came out to celebrate this special occasion with her. Natalee Wilson and her daughter Emmalee did a lovely job preparing the fellowship hall in pink, little elephants, and homemade lollipops in the shape of little pink baby shirts.
Deborah Mattson, Bethany's mom, gave a good devotional on Psalm 139. She gave some special memories of Bethany and she reminded us that God has all of our days and the details of our lives in His control. She reminded Bethany that God can give her and Jeff the grace to raise their little girl for His glory. He is a very personal God, and He is willing to save anyone who puts his or her faith in His Son the Lord Jesus Christ.
We then ate and had a time of fellowship, played a fun game about candy bars, and then Bethany opened her gifts. She got a number of beautiful things including some special handmade gifts. Thank you to everyone who took the time to support Bethany at this very special time in their lives.
