Today I'm grateful for:
boxes. When you're not in one, they can be very pretty and very useful.
crayons. Now, I personally paint with words but have you seen crayons these days? Man, they have changed since I was a kid. Crayons are awesomeness in waxy form.
taking the time to take stock. When your on a lifetime journey, it's important to stand still occasionally. The view is breathtaking. I must admit though, the best view is what's up around the bend, just out of sight. From here it looks amazing.
this week in UpStreet. It's our last week before the close for the summer season. This weeks lesson is "Taking prayer outside the box" As you can imagine, this lesson is near and dear to my heart. I pray I can get creative and connect with the 4th grade. This is my last Sunday with them. Next fall they move to the 5th grade class. This is my last chance to help them take their faith out of the box and play with it. Oh man, this is gonna be fun.
prayer. When you take it out of the box and play with it, amazing things can happen. When you leave it in the box it came in why are you surprised when nothing comes of it? God's just waiting for you to ask him to play.
learning something from a child's lesson. Going over my Sunday School lesson for tomorrow got my brain going and in the process I learned something. Man I love it when that happens.
