I blog a lot about my family and friends; of course! With being so sick over the past few months, there is another piece of my life that has been missing. I haven't been able to be part of the youth ministry that I love so much! A few have come over here and there, but it isn't the same as being there week after week. This weekend was our church's D-Now weekend. (Disciple Now) And although I am still not allowed to do much, and most certainly am exhausted from it, I had a blast being part of it and taking lots and lots of pictures!
I had to smile Friday night when a group of them were talking about my blog. A lot of them read it. So when the question came up of what will it take to get on my blog, I simply answered, it has to be good…and worth blogging about! You gotta love the passion!
For instance, to be part of my blogging about teens when there's a variety of stuff to choose from, you have to be willing to fight for it!
You have to be a good friend (after all, this weekend was all about building great relationships!) and be willing to force a helmet on someone with hair like this!
So that they can turn around and do something like this!
You have to be tough!
B-boo was the only girl left!
But she was also smart…when pastor offered to pay the boys $20 each to
get her into the trash can, she quickly bowed out of the game and let
the boys duke it out!
You have to be willing to laugh at yourself! This one was supposed to be blowing the feather to keep it in the air…not biting catching it between his teeth!
You have to show kindness. The boy in the back recently had a 12 hour surgery to correct severe scoliosis. He wasn't able to participate in the games. But the teen in the front made sure to play safely so that he wouldn't get hurt, but have some fun in the day!
Did I mention competitive?
Um…last man standing wins…not first won falling!
And running from a challenge might get you on my blog, but it doesn't help you win.
but community service, helping others;
things like that will always get you on my blog!
Thank you to all my teens for an awesome weekend!
