You think I'm kidding, but today sealed the deal. Here are some of the things today that overflowed my cup:
- I drove to school instead of rode the bus, which perfectly placed about 8.5 extra minutes to spend with David in 1 Samuel
- I ran out of coffee filters at my house, but savored a Vanilla Chai tea... delicious start!
- I met the day with uncharacteristic (before coffee), silly joy and greeted students with grand gestures and lopsided smiles.
- During our mid-morning break, I was heading back from an errand in the administration building, secretly hoping two certain, special students would be waiting in my office... and THEY WERE. I think I scared them with my loopy-ness and laughter, but I don't care. I love it when I find students in my office... especially when the special ones appear!
- CHAPEL happens Monday and today was such a blessing! I am sure many of the seniors won't admit it, but they want to know about hearing God's voice. That was exactly the message!
- Then, I got to counsel one of my favorite students using a SWEET analogy about records playing in our heads. Sometimes we've let the record of lies steal the show and we listen to it over and over and start to believe all the foolishness it plays. We've got to put that sweet record called Truth on stat and then you better believe we're gonna speak and act out of that life-giving overflow! I'll admit, my favorite part was connecting it to a Corinne Bailey Rae song, "Put Your Records On" because every time I saw her I broke out into singing.
- I love that THIS was shown to remember our time at the SLEEPout!
- then...(drumroll) it's MONDAY so that means culinary collision with two of my favorite ladies! I seriously can't explain how beautiful and brilliant these girls are... so I won't try. Just read this blogpost and you'll get a little taste of the night (not a real taste, but a cyber-ish one:).
- I love praying in my car on the way back from Monday baking dates. Shoot, and I just have to say again how much I love these amazing high school girls. They may/may not be changing my life (mostly may).
- I may/may not have consumed too much caffeine today (mostly may), which means I might be up writing for awhile!
I hope you are going to
let LOVE fly like CRAZY
