last month i celebrated 15 years as the minister of children at belle aire. there is really no way i can convey with words my humbled gratitude for all the notes, gifts, cards, drawings (by the kids), hugs and love i received. i was (and still am) blown away by the way this church family wrapped me with appreciation for the last 15 years i was blessed to serve alongside them. even after so many years, i am still surprised and a tad bit confused that our great God chooses to use such an imperfect person as myself. may His glory shine brightly though this cracked vessel.
there is one gift i received in the morning services of january 15th that is simply indescribable. you must see it for yourself. they recruited many of my past students (YUCs – youth under construction) to recite Hebrews 11, my favorite passage of scripture. how can you top the sweet faces and lives i love so much speaking the hall of faith from the Living Word of God? it is my joy to share with with you!
