I said yes to being the MOPPETS leader for the MOPS (Mothers of PreSchoolers) group I'm in. The job is basically being in charge of the whole children's program. I've had to decide which kids go in which classrooms, and come up with curriculum. It doesn't sound like much, but after the first day of MOPS I just wanted to hide in a corner somewhere and maybe cry a little bit. It was crazy!
I'm babysitting a cute little boy named Lincoln for three weeks. It's only my second day, but he it hasn't been difficult at all. He's a good kid, and he sleeps a lot. Sleeping a lot is always good. I like to sleep a lot. It's something we have in common, so we get along pretty well.
I'm also watching Allston (my nephew) for Geoff and Felicia for a few afternoons and nights while they do their booth at the fair. Allston and I also have something in common. He gets overwhelmed when there's lots of kids around. I really do too.
Last Sunday at church the music during worship was awesome. I got a little choked up, even. We sang "Surrender", and during one part of the song, you could hear the junior high kids (who come in the service just for the worship portion) really singing out. I just thought it was great that they were so into it. At the end of the service we sang "God of this City", which I really love. Some of the words are great:
Greater things have yet to come
Greater things are still to be done
In this city
Greater things are still to come
And greater things are still to be done here
It just reminded me how much God has done, not only in my life, but everywhere I look. My heart felt so overwhelmed, and I couldn't even sing. I love Sundays like that, where I feel the presence of God so much.
