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?
" Do you not know?
Have you not heard???
The LORD is the everlasting GOD,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He will not grow tired or weary,
and His understanding no one can fathom.
He gives strength to the weary,
and increases the power of the weak.
Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;
but those who hope in the LORD
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint." Isaiah 40:28-31
"The Sovereign LORD has given me an instructed tongue, to know the word that sustains the weary.
He wakens me morning by morning, wakens my ear to listen like one being taught." Isaish 50:4
