No Friday Fragments for me today....
I'm too busy packing up the important stuff... like Blow-pops, candy, Tylenol...
which can only mean its time for another Believe trip. The Jr High conference that is in Cincinnati for 2 days. Yep, 2 full days of THOUSANDS of kids worshipping together... learning about God... having a fun time, but getting to know each other better as well. It's always holds "life memory" moments... Praying this year is the same.
I am excited to go, but also am feeling really badly going. Why? Because my dad is home after the back surgery yesterday (THANK YOU SO MUCH for all the prayers & encouragement) & he's in some major pain. I hate leaving him like that... I hate leaving my mom there by herself to do it all on her own. I'm just so torn about going. But dad told me, "The next 2 days are going to be rough for me, but I'll get through them - so just go & have fun... we'll make it through"... which makes me want to stay even more... sigh...
So can you all do me a favor - pray for some certain things for the next 2 days?
*that we have a safe travels... lots of young lives that you are responsible for is never taken lightly
*that these kids learn something they've never learned before... even if its that Jesus loves them MORE then they thought... sometimes the most simple messages are the most powerful
*that we all stay healthy. The flu has been traveling around our area & praying everyone is getting in these vans all healthy - no germs to pass around to each other.
*that my dad's pain is tolerable the next few days as he heals... that the medicine stays in his system & gives him the relief he needs
*that my mom can keep up with the schedule of medicine & taking care of dad, with the pulling & tugging of getting him up & down & over & flat in the bed
*that I can just breath... between the responsibility of the kids & the worry of dad at home... I need to just breath... & remember to BELIEVE!!!!!!
Happy Weekend everyone!
