What a great day today has been!
Bittersweet tears as the 'Bad Girls' met for our last class this morning. We talked about ideas for books to study in the future...and even though we were silent when the questions were asked, there was laughter, tears, and some time for seriousness. I thank God that this class has come together over the past few months. While we sometimes go off track, we end up in the midst of true life situations relating to family, children, relationships, our community and our world. I hope that the women in this class have been as blessed as I have in the conversations and prayers that we have shared.
At the 10:45 service, we welcomed twins into the Body of Christ through baptism. :) The children got to lay hands on our high school graduates and pray for them as they begin the next phase of their lives, and we shared bread and wine around the Lord's Table.
After worship, I missed Sundaes on Sunday because I was out to lunch (literally) with a group of 8th grade confirmands. We laughed, ate, and laughed some more. What an awesome group of young women. Spending time with them brings a smile to my face as I see relationships that are strengthened by their faith and connections at church.
After lunch, I made it to the tail end of Godspell rehearsal. Singing and more laughter with an incredibly talented group of folks within the congregation.
Now some time working on thank you notes....perhaps a nap....and the chance to breathe before the ministry (that never stops) at Trinity continues.
Exhausted, but so happy. :)
