Over the past three weeks I’ve come to appreciate being with the younger generation.  I wish there was another term – that sounds like I’m looking down on them.

Far from it!  I appreciate their energy and strength.  They overflow with creativity.  And they have this “truth meter” that catches you every time you stretch the truth a bit.

So, tonight I head out to our AWANA club.  I work with Grades three and four kids.  We’ll try doing some memorizing, play games, drink juice and eat cookies, hear a talk on God and then head home.  I’ll be tired, but that can be a good tired.

In the midst of my father’s funeral preparations, this was one diversion that I gladly accepted.  So, as I brush my teeth and step out the door, I’m looking forward to this once again!!
