God must be laughing, really hard

I am not good with discussion groups, at least I don't think I am. But apparently God decided yesterday that He thought I should lead one.

We're doing small groups with each grade, each gender. Example: 6th grade girls. Kristen got stuck with me because she's really good at them, me, not so much. EXCEPT that we had so many 6th grade girls that we had to split the group in two. You guessed it, I had to lead a small group. Can I tell you I was completely blessed by my small group! These girls are so great, it took them a little while to open up, but i had two girls who had been coming to fuel for awhile so they helped keep it going, because they were so open, the other girls opened up too. I had an awesome High School leader, I already thought she was amazing, but Penny is even better than I thought!!
We didn't have "worship" in the sense of a band, due to unforseen circumstances, no band. So we used the time to actually talk to the kids about worship, and hear what they had to say, to teach them, and be taught by them. It was SWEET. So yesterday, the kids worshipped without music, and it was great. I just know that God heard their sweet voices and hearts.

Psalm 100:2 Worship the LORD with gladness; come before him with joyful songs.

It sounds absolutely awesome..and you didn't even know you could do that sort of thing did you? :)
I'm SO glad you've decided to structure your life a bit more and plan on some downtime. Seems like some of the best things happen in a family when you're just hanging out...
