With All The Words In The World...

Today my youth pastor asked me to do something I'm not sure I'll be able to do, put into words the experience I had with the kids at Grace Point. Grace Point and the experiences I had there are high points of this trip for me. They are experiences that changed me and taught me so much, causing me to grow and learn. Putting these experiences into words is another matter entirely. How I'll put into words the amazing time I had there escapes me. How I'll put into words the things of God that happened while we were there, the relationships I built with some pretty amazing kids and the experiences and realizations I had that changed me, I have no idea. One thing I know for sure, if I want to describe Grace Point, really describe it, and my time there I'm going to need more then just a few minutes. To tell all the stories that touched my heart, to describe all of the people that impacted me so greatly, to talk about everything I learned on this trip, I'll need more like a few hours, if not more. The experiences I had at Grace Point were like a story written by God's own fingers. Every piece of that portion of our trip was more then I could have ever imagined. I was blessed in ways I didn't even know I was able to be blessed in, challenged in ways I didn't know I could be challenged in, grown in ways I didn't know I could be grown in. And even with all the words our there, how, may I ask, do you find words to describe what can only be described as a God thing?

My prayers are with a family whose little girl, only 10 months old, went to be with Jesus yesterday. She had problems with her heart and on her 10 month birthday, she finally went home. She's not in pain anymore, and she had no more struggles and a perfect heart. Please pray for her family as they grieve the loss of their baby girl.

Just write that!
