Look at the munchkins I spent the weekend with! What a great break and a re-awakening of a broader vision. I have to admit that when I left the Inn on Friday I was reluctant to go because I didn’t want to miss the stuff that would go on this weekend – can you believe that? I had let my focus get so small as to forget there was much of a world outside of the bubble we live in here. I think I need to get out more.

Anyhow, I got to spend all weekend just hanging out with a family, I really miss that; God bless all families who take in college students. We got to eat home cooked food, clean house, play Old Maid, give piggy back rides (sometimes to three kids at a time) and sit in on family wisdom search. Oh, and we had ice cream, that fills the quota for this week J

Little kids fill a special need in my life, I can’t explain it but I know that they will be an essential part of my life and ministry. I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that God has called me to work with and love little kiddos. I’ve been working on my social life here so much that I’ve lost perspective, besides, kids don’t have lots of complicated problems, they don’t ask hard questions, they have such great faith, and such a simple outlook on life; we can relate really well. Children are my calling and I am so happy!

Thank you Lord for reminding me why I am here at college, thank you for showing me simple trust. Thank you for taking me out of the adult’s life of care and giving me lessons in the trusting acceptance and faith of a child. Take my hand Lord and lead me.
