Praise !

"NOW THANKS BE UNTO GOD, WHICH ALWAYS CAUSETH US TO TRIUMPH IN CHRIST !"

The LORD is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear?The LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
When the wicked came against me to eat up my flesh, my enemies and foes, they stumbled and fell. Though an army encamp against me, my heart shall not fear....Psalm 27 1-3
Psalm 31: 7, 8
I will be glad and rejoice in thy mercy; for thou hast considered my trouble; thou hast known my soul in adversities;
And hast not shut me up into the hand of the enemy; thou hast set my feet in a large room.

Hello all !

I'm still around........just not posting much.  I think that busy summer days do that to alot of us.  4th evening of Vacation Bible School went well. 

I went there around 4 p.m. today, to help bag the cotton candy for tonight's snack.  That was interesting !  The machine was loud and fibrous bits of spun sugar were flying through the air, coating the walls and filling the slits in the airconditioner vent !  I'm glad that I thought ahead and wore a cap.  The air in the room looked like a fog after an hour of operating the machine, and I started to wonder what that was doing to my lungs !  I had trouble drawing a good breath, so I went outside for a breather.

But, OH ! the cotton candy was GOOD !  And it was definitely well-received by the kids.  It was so funny to see 3 or 4 year-olds licking cotton candy, having it for the first time, and trying to figure out what in the world it was. 

Tomorrow night is pizza night.  I've spent 2 nights in the 4th grade class, and I had no idea how rowdy boys of that age can be.  One asked me, "what are you doing in here anyway?" ! ! !

Hmmmmmmmm......but he didn't run me off !        I've got two grandsons , so I'd better figure out how to relate more to boys.  I don't have any trouble with Christopher, my great-nephew.......I suspect that these boys just haven't had as much Christian love as some.   Well, that's what we're there for, right?

  3. Yes, 4th grade boys can be very rowdy! Good for you to stand firm and not let him run you off! I taught for many years and saw a LOT of kids in need of love and affirmation (but I must admit, some were easier to love than others). You may be blessing some of those kids in ways you don't even realize.
