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!!
