When God Throws a Surprise Party



When God throws a surprise party, the greeting He shouts at you when He jumps up from behind the couch as you walk through the door goes something like this:

"Surpriii-iiise! What up, yo? Guess what? I'm bringing your brother home from Afghanistan in MARCH, instead of JULY!! Guess what that means? That he'll be home for EASTER! And FATHER'S DAY! And ZOEY'S FIRST BIRTHDAY! Woo-woo! Want some punch?"

"Oh, and? In case you thought I finished? He doesn't have to deploy til November 27, which means he gets to spend THANKSGIVING at home this year, too."

So, in case you wonder, God performs miracles. Every.Single.Day.
