A Positive Note - Just For Kicks...

I am often quite negative. Critical for better and worse. How about a positive note today? Just for kicks...

I got paid to play bumper cars with a bunch of teenagers this weekend. It's part of my job.

The day before bumper cars, I met up with one of my students in a local coffee shop. We talked. We enjoyed our time together. We went beyond the time alotted for our conversation and I didn't even notice. If not for my busy schedule, we could have talked for another hour.

The day after bumper cars, I surveyed my students, asking what the best and worst aspects of our Sunday morning Bible study were. The best? One student said he had really learned a lot! The worst? According to another student: having to learn stuff. Not sure why, but that struck me as funny.

I have a great job. I get paid to hang out with teenagers. True, some days I beg my wife to hit me repeatedly in the head with a hammer. Today, however, I am thankful for my lot. I am blessed to work with some pretty cool people, and I love every one of them. Even the kid who "has to learn stuff" in my Sunday morning Bible study...

Just like I felt most of the time being a Mom! Had no one to hit me over the head when I needed it.

you have that kid in your youth group, too? I've had a couple of those who've been saying, "When are we gonna be done with Revelation?"
Psh. Weaklings.
But I still love 'em!
