This is my post for the week.
No Way Back Wednesday, no Food on Friday. Nothing in between. How will you live? You'll be fine. You can do anything for 5 days. Just keep repeating that over and over.
I am taking 9 teenagers on a Prayer and Action Mission trip for our parish. We leave today at 4 and will return on Friday afternoon. It's not far from home and the twins are 2 of the 9 teenagers.
See the joy they are expressing at leaving home to sleep in a church and paint houses? And basically, we disconnect from the world for 5 days. No electronic devices, ipods, phones, tv, computer/internet......you get the picture. This is a good week for me. I can do anything for 5 days.....I can do anything for 5 days.....
This is our second year for the mission trip. Last year was wonderful experience....that I hope repeats itself this year. I came home refreshed and with renewed faith in the world. 60 teenagers working together, sharing their faith and bonding as a group can do that to a person....
Feel the joy being expressed by these two? Nuts--both of them. They get to stay home and do all the work. Oh, and they get to do FamFit by themselves. Poor, poor College Girl. I wish her hamstrings well.
I can't promise a post when I get home on Friday. I...um...volunteered to make sloppy joes for our home swim meet on Saturday. I volunteered to help out my good friend, Jen, who was a little freaked out about running the concession stand. Yep, I will be welcomed home by 40 pounds of beef that needs to be fried, 4 giant cans of ketchup, 4 pounds of brown sugar, onions and worcestershire sauce.
I might be back in blogland on Sunday.
And, um, well, I must confess that I still haven't started reading that book club book that I need to have read by Monday, June 22 at 7 p.m. So who knows when I will be back.....
Have a great week, loyal readers....I will miss you and send prayers your way.
