Confirmation Sunday


These past two years I have been working with the greatest group of girls. In a society where teens have a pretty bad rap, these teens are amazing.
From the first time we got together they have shown their love for others in everything thing they do. They are so inclusive, always reaching out to the stranger.
They also inquisitive. In teaching them, they pushed me as a teacher to move past the "Sunday School" answers and to really dig deep.
This weekend they graduated from our churches two year confirmation program. Sunday in front of the whole church and lots of outside guests they proclaimed their faith. It was so great to see here how God has worked in their lives.
I know I will be forever touch by them.
Their light shines bright!

A Door Once Opened

Today is Five Minute Fridays so lets link up and write
So I write for Five minute, no edits, no re dos and at the end I will see if there are pictures from my week Instagram feed that match the words of this week.
Topic: Door
 
"A door, once opened, may be stepped through in either direction."
~ Reinette Poisson on Dr. Who
 
Many doors open in my life. I open doors to new jobs and I step through with excitement. I have opened doors to travels and again I step through with no hesitation.
I watch as the things step through in the other direction. Work brings me stability and challenge, Travel brings me new experiences and adventure.
I open doors and hesitantly put one foot through the threshold. I give a bit of effort but not as much as I should. I will instead watch as more comes through to my side of the door than me on their side.
Some doors I open and I never step through. I wait and watch and see if I like what they have to offer on my side first.
I do this more often than I care to admit, open a door and yet never step through.
How I want to embrace all of life fully, and yet I hesitate on the edge. I hold on to the handle refusing to let go of the door.
Some days I need to be reminded to let go of door and move inside.
