slow to speak and slow to anger... again!!

Yesterday I got an email that said "sorry they decided to send the kids to a different church for VBS"

My first thought was "UGH! We've bought the stuff!!" so I called GCH... their kids have been blessed to go to YMCA day camp...

Then... I called Miguel who had this BRILLIANT idea to do VBS 'Colombian Style', takin' it to the streets! We've got this great park picked out, a park that used to be over run by drugs, only to have the neighborhood take it over and make it a place where kids can be kids, where they can grow and dream!! SWEET!

I'm not going to lie, I was furious and frustrated but I just looked up and said "Your will". This trip is nothing about me and all about Him. Not sure what this is going to look like this week, but His view is so much better than mine.

And for the record... I did keep my big mouth shut! And none of the fruit fell of my tree!!

James 1:19 19My dear brothers, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry,

Oh... and another lesson learned... I had a ton of shopping to do... and I ASKED FOR HELP! maybe it's not a big deal for someone else to ask for help, but it's not easy for me. And it's not about thinking I'm not good enough, it's about knowing 1) I can't do it all, and 2) other people like to help too! They have great gifts and should be able to use them! God is working in me!!!

So wonderful to be able to really "see" when God is working in us.

In one of the books we had to read it said if you can work your way out of a job you'll always have one... so if you are able to delegate to people in a way that it gets done and you don't feel like your doing anything... then thats a good thing, cause then you will get something else thats more important just a random thought :)
