Again I have been lax in writing here on my blog, and particularly in keeping up with my weekly Thankful Thursday posts. Right now I’m just thankful that I’ve finally finished my essay (which I got an extension for because of being sick the week it was due). This may be a short post because I am also thankful to be going to bed very soon.
This week I’m thankful for:
Help at Kid’s Club
J had to fill it at Kid’s Club last minute today because a couple of leaders were away, including the one who was due to do the talk. With little preparation J did the talk on the relevant passage, brilliantly fielded some tricky questions from the kids about eternal life, and threw himself into the games. I love watching him interact with children and seeing how much he enjoys it.
On Tuesday we had our first game of netball and it was good fun. I haven’t run like that in quite a while so even though we only played two 12 minute halves that was enough for me. It was fun to do something as part of a team again and I’m looking forward to the opportunity to get to know the people in my team. I’m thankful for the invitation to join the team, which came as a surprise for me.
A friend who I studied with last year and who lives near our college community has just had a baby. One of the wonderful ways our community supports those with newborns is to organise a meal roster. Today it was our turn and when we dropped off the meal J and I both got to have a hold of the little 3 week old cutie. I’m always amazed at how little babies start out.
Now I’m off to bed. What are you thankful for this week?
