Sunday I led a training meeting for elementary Sunday morning programming at church. I got feedback that I went WAY too long. Ever gotten tired of hearing yourself talk? That alone should have been a tip off, now I'm kind of embarrassed. I wonder if these foster parent modules will be one of those things like my training meeting where you spend too much time learning too little information. Or maybe it will be worth every second. I suppose whether or not the information is valuable it will be worth every second of it, because the class leads us one step closer to becoming a safe family for a kid in crisis. Plus we will meet other people headed in the same direction and hopefully start to build some community. Therefore whether or not the info is worth it, I'm pretty excited.
On another note more related to why what we are doing is so worth it...
This month in Sontown the memory verse is:
- "Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves; ensure justice for those being crushed. Yes, speak up for the poor and helpless, and see that they get justice." Proverbs 31:8-9 (NLT)
I love it when God speaks confirmation and truth to my heart through children.
Well now I am off to yet another training meeting, this time for Awana. Thankfully for everyone's sake, this time I'm not doing all the talking.
