Seriously, I've been the voice of "Checkers the Cheetah" during our morning VBS assemblies. It's been great! But afterwards I've been having a hankering for Cheetoe's!
Oops! Wrong cheetah.
Speaking of great, what a wonderful group of adult and youth volunteers we've had this week at VBS! Attendance has grown every day (could it be the big blow up water slide we have in the yard?) I think attendance has grown because of the great people, great lessons and all the great food!
Singing wise, I've been busy this week singing with the pre-K kids after the opening assembly, and then singing with all the other kids and youth at closing.
And to tell the truth, I've really needed this week. Monday evening I sang as well as for our UMMen's group. All the singing this week has given me a strong sense of balance that I haven't had in a few weeks. Singing and playing guitar for other people is a devotional sort of thing with me. If we can sing together, then we can work together to do great things for the Kingdom of God. I'm sure how to better explain it, but after singing for people, I feel calmer, more controlled, more at peace.
Balance is a good thing. Perspective helps me to not choose to react out of emotion, but to respond more often out of faith.
And that is always a good thing to do.
God's grace still amazes me . . . ><>
