Vacation Bible School.
Remember that? Lots of kids running around singing about Jesus?
This year I'm helping in a classroom again. And this year I care about the kids more than ever. I've always just sort of put up with the kids, tried to keep them calm and really found myself intimidated by them.
God has changed me. I care about them. I care about their hearts, their futures, and who they are as people.
I want to encourage them and teach them. These are new feelings for me with a group of kids I don't know. I've always felt that way about my own kids but usually I don't care much for other people's kids. I mean, they are cute and fine but I wasn't really compassionate towards them.
So - for the first time I find VBS to be fun. I want to have fun with them and impact their lives. Wow God. He gets all the praise on this.
Note: it is day 2. check back in at the end. :)
