I have fallen in love!


One of my classes is having their final test tommorraow. I will have to say goodbye and release them to a summer of bad influences (like rap and MTV). I pray for them.

I'm sure that is tough to do but you have planted a seed in their hearts and it's now up to God to make it grow. ec

I can state with certaintly that, though separated in time/space from this lot of young people, you will absolutely NOT be forgotten...
ever. You are so OTHER compared to everyone else they've known..socially, culturally, intellectually, spiritually, you will stand out in their memories like the one marked egg in the flat, like one bright green Granny Smith in the bin of hundreds of Braeburns..and yes, the seeds God has planted within them through YOU will grow and bear fruit..though (sometimes sadly, in a way) you may never know of that fruit. Others surely will, though THEY may not know how it got there.

mr. eddie--Thanks. I know I have to learn to let God keep them.

nick jesch--Thank you for the encouragement. I know God is working among the kids. I am continually surprised by what is going on underneath the surface.
