We had the YAM gang over last night for our "Reach for the Scars" small group launch.
These pictures are not from last night... they are from another get together with them that we had @ the house recently.
I love having them come over. Our house is far from where I'd like to see it.... the kitchen is still completely out of order & in the midst of being remodeled. Our carpet has stains that are driving me mad, I have paint marks all over the living room from where I started painting the ceiling & need to finish the walls, I have finger prints all over the railings & walls, we have a mismatched bathroom downstairs... but you know what... when they come over it's all OK. I just love to see them having a good time in our home.
I used to be intimidated by this group of young adults because I was afraid I wouldn't be cool enough or knowledgeable enough to lead them... but what I'm starting to realize is that we are a group together. Stephen & I may be the department heads of this ministry but they teach us just as much as we teach them.
I love the connectivity. I always go away from these times together with a full and happy heart.
Thank you Lord for the privilege to be a part of this!
