Saddle Ridge Ranch

This week is our Vacation Bible School at church.  We've ditched this city life for a trip to the Saddle Ridge Ranch.  It's been great so far--I love VBS!  I am teaching the 5th and 6th graders.  What a fun but terrifying age to be! 

Every year I am reminded how many "grown-up" issues our young kids are facing these days.  My heart breaks for them, but I thank God I have the opportunity to remind them just how much they mean to God and just how much God cares for them. 

My prayer is that they are having as much fun as I am and at the same time learning some fundamental truths about God that will carry them through the tough times in life. 

It's been a busy week already but it's a good busy.  I'm not sure when I'll post again.  I caught a break today since one of my doctors is off.  Yippee!!!

I hope you are each having a great day, and remember, only 26 days left before school starts!

It does my heart good to read this. I fear that people might think volunteering for VBS or Sunday School is just glorified babysitting, but so many kids (myself included) are saved because of a caring adult who helps plant a seed.
