Wednesday

...is Good News Club!  And I have to confess that sometimes it's not exactly the highlight of my week.  Sometimes the kids are rowdy, and normally I've had a full day and so I don't exactly have a lot of energy.  But it's AMAZING what God can do when you cry out to Him for wisdom, cheerfulness and simply the strength to make it through!


I love our GNC kids.

Yes, they are challenging sometimes, but challenges are good.  It's all in the way you look at it.  A friend just told me the other day "you can always find something to praise God about." And how true that is!




Yes, I'm holding an egg!  But get this; a story about 2 boys, 2 eggs and 1 big city made our normally chatty kids silent, the fidgety ones still.  You could have heard a pin drop in the usually noisy room. And believe me when I tell you that silence in our GNC room is very, very rare.  As I looked over the faces I noticed that tears were on the brink of spilling down the their cheeks.



It's amazing to me how God can work through a simple story!
