Overnights and Holy Spirit

Okay, this is an overnight post.

I am at work, fighting to stay awake, and every little child who should be sleeping, but is not, does not seem so cute right now. I offered to switch places with them. They could go be the nurse, and I'd sleep, but this 11 month old right next to me didn't seem to like that idea very much. My 9 year old jumped at the chance, but I had to turn her down....she didn't know how to plug in the heart machine. Very important detail.

(Hey, I just looked down, the 11month old who has been screaming since midnight WENT TO SLEEP!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

:)

Life has been good and busy lately.

Taught a class on Holy Spirit on Sunday, which went well. Honestly, I wish it had went better...sometimes it's hard to know if you are connecting, and it's hard to think of creative ways to make it all interesting. I mean, it's the Holy Spirit, so it's VERY interesting (and quite frankly amazing!), but at 11am, you've GOT to have something to wake them up. They were responsive, and ultimately, I have to trust the Lord with what He asked me to say, and then for the change in them from it. I've already had one student asking questions from her devotional, so that's good. That actually makes me REALLY happy. I love when others learn new things about the Lord.

I love when I learn new things about the Lord.

With teens it can be difficult to tell whether you're influencing them or not until they're willing to speak up.

But thank goodness the Lord gives you the words and you don't have to worry about that part.

Now go get some much needed rest. ;)
