In case you still wanted to see what I’ve been posting, I’ve found a new home. It had been so long since I had posted here that I felt I should start on something new. So here it is!
What Christians Believe -
I’ve been asked to speak to a bunch of Aggies this weekend about what Christians believe. That shouldn’t be hard right?
…the president is the anti-Christ.
…the last president is the anti-Christ.
…Jesus is their president.
…Christians speak in tongues.
…some Christians speak in tongues.
…some Christians once spoke in tongues.

…Jews aren’t people.
…God was a Jewish negro.

Christians believe a lot of stuff.
What are the things we all believe?
Maybe I should focus most of my words on those.
Maybe we all should.
A friend sent me this link as we discussed blogging, and I thought it was definitely some food for thought. I’ve been focusing a lot on intentionality in blogging a lot lately, and thought maybe this post would inspire some thought.
So excited about what’s going on here. Hot tea (!), writing notes, my favorite pens, honey. If only you could see my comfy sweater in this picture too. So stoked on today.
My parents have been married for twenty five years today!
These are just some of the girls God blessed me with this year in c-group. Tomorrow is our last day, so I’ve spent some time tonight reflecting on the Wednesday evenings that graced this year with beautiful memories.
I went into the year unsure of a lot of things. Unsure of how to teach, how to love, and how to hang out with junior highers, I started the year with the insecurity of not knowing how to be what I was supposed to be and went into it headfirst and doing my best to trust. I walked into a room full of girls who spewed energy that seemed irrepressible and have gotten the complete blessing of watching them grow more mature and more earnestly seeking God than I could have possibly expected. Their growth and my own can only be attributed to the hand God had in our group throughout the year and I cannot wait to see how much more He does in the lives of these girls when I am gone.
It breaks my heart that I won’t see them for while. I will miss the joy they bring me and the challenge of answering tough questions and the wonder of watching how much fourteen year olds grow in one year. God, thank you for c-group. Thank you for preparing these girls. Thank you for teaching me love and patience. Keep them strong.
i am so obsessed with this.
