I got to know Kerstin from church. She´s another youth cell leader for teenagers. Her cell consists of youths younger than ours - in the 13 to 15 years´old range. Oh boy, she´s such a sweet dear!!!! Such a heart for the younger generation. She works full-time in a youth home which provides refuge for young ones from troubled families. One cannot underestimate the level of maturity, patience and perseverance one has to possess when dealing with youths like hers.
Whenever I think of what she does, I simply have to take my hats off to her. Really.
I baked a strawberry cake for the birthday girl, which I wanted to put some candles on and sing a birthday song too. Unfortunately being in Germany (where people don´t sing Bday songs), it was cut up and eaten even before I could take a photo of it! **bummer**
Got the recipe from a magazine. The taste of the cake itself was very nice. Though the frosting was a tad too sweet. I´m wondering if its because its an American magazine, so the cakes are sweeter? In any case, I´ll try another recipe of the frosting again, before posting the recipe up.
The half-eaten cake
We had lots of dancing with Rock and Roll music, but yours truly didn´t overcome my inertia to dance.... Though I must add that it was really fun watching others jump around!
Happy birthday dear Kerstin! Such a privilege to know you! You bring so much joy and sunshine wherever you go. May you continue to taste and see that the Lord is good ALL the time!
