From stolen cars to MK ministry

Got a message this morning that Sanderly called for me yesterday and I was supposed to call her back.  Funny.  I like her timing!  It’s only been 3 weeks since I was with the Bunnetts, but it feels like months ago, or a different lifetime.  Everything from the east seems like a different lifetime.

The kids were funny today!  Carrie and James were making Mr. N and I “steal” their cars near the end of snack time (“here’s my car, you stole it!” and they’d run off)  The game progressed, and James hid his own car on himself (“someone stole my car!”) then, “Here, Carrie, I’ll hide yours — hey, someone stole your car!”  Whereupon they ran around the room yelling and hollering that their cars had been stolen and they needed to find them.  Carrie says, “There’s your car, James!  I found it!”  James pauses his yelling long enough to exlaim, “No, I don’t WANT to find it, let’s go find yours!”

Miss T was teaching Noah and Rena that God had made boys and girls — “Rena is a girl, and you’re a boy, Noah.”  “No, I’m not a boy!  I’m a monkey!”

Had an MK meeting tonight.  Our MK youth nights last year were crazy fun but I learned so much at them too.  I’m looking forward to more good discussions this year, and maybe moving in a little different direction, with us all being adults (whether we all ACT like adults all the time is debatable, however!)  Less of the figuring out our own lives and coming to terms with things but more to do with ministering to and supporting other younger MKs?  We shall see.

I’m in a very quiet, pensive mood.  Wondering where my life will go.  Where God would have me.  What He wants me involved in.  What burdens He will lay on my heart and want me to take action on and what I can handle.

Jeremiah 10:23 — “O Lord, I know that the way of man is not in himself: it is not in man that walks to direct his steps.”

One thought on “From stolen cars to MK ministry

  1. Perhaps by ministering to and supporting other younger MKs – might we find that we begin to “figure out our own lives and come to terms with things”? I know this is becoming true for me…

    Matthew 10:39
    ” He who has found his life will lose it, and he who has lost his life for My sake will find it.
