Lately, I've been feeling "Blah." I can't really explain it and sometimes, we cannot find the words for our feelings. I guess that's one of the reasons they're called feelings. "I just feel......"
Anyway, you know how your inner self is telling you what you should be doing and your outer self just doesn't feel like it? Well that's me. I know what to do and what I should be doing at times, but sometimes, I just don't feel like it. Sort of like exercising and eating healthy would produce great results, but we oftentimes neglect that "old saying" and look for ways to diet and loose those last ten pounds or so ;-)
Sorry, I got off subject for a moment but I was trying to give a useful analogy. The whole point of my post is to tell you that I've decided to Volunteer at an Elementary School. I started this past Friday and boy was it a treat. There were (21) 5 year old kindergartners and it was Finger Painting Day! "WOW"
My Pastor's wife is the teacher and I truly take my hat off to her. She has done this for years and I was completely exhausted after 2 hrs. and 49 min. (They log your hours in a computer)
Everyone kept asking if I was coming back. I had to say, "Yes." Earlier this year while reading Isaiah, I happened upon Chapter 6:8 and fell in love with the verse. So be very careful what you ask the Lord for, because He is listening and He is in the business of answering prayers.
I'm so excited to be of service. After all, they are our future and I'm quite certain that this experience will take my mind off of me and what I've been going through lately. After spending just 2 hrs and 49 min. with those kids, I truly realized "again" that this life is not about me!
Love and peace
