I’ve had a little “event” come up and I’ve got to get this week’s posting out there so I can move on to bigger things. I was sitting here about to bore you to tears with another story of working in the church with kids. The picture below shows not only Sarah, my oldest grandchild, but in the background is Stephen Cottingham. The thing I wanted to tell you was how satisfying it was for me to not only be there when Sarah went to church camp for the first time but the even more blessed feeling to watch Stephen lead the event. I took Stephen to this same camp when he was about Sarah’s age. Now he’s leading them. I’ve come full circle.
But I have to stop here. I just got a call that the Other Stephen, my son-in-law, Steve……..has Chicken Pox. Yes, Chicken Pox, the disease only little kids get. I can’t claim that he was a defective groom and ask for a refund on the wedding because he caught them from Emily. They BOTH have Chicken Pox. So, you can see why I can’t write any more. I have to get packing and go help with the kids while they recover.
And, by packing, I mean for my trip to Mississippi that I leave for on Sunday. I found myself with not much to do for a couple of weeks so I decided to go back to Pearlington to help. So, life is kind of busy right now.
I’ll give you a full report when I get back. I hope they’ll let me take pictures of them. I know she and Steve will laugh about this some day.
