Has it really been this long? You’ve heard it all before….hours turn into days, days into weeks, etc. etc.
It’s been a whirlwind..both good and not so good, ah, the ups and downs of life.
So much of my time, efforts and energy goes into working with kids. Our kids, our hurting, lonely, searching, scarred and scared kids…just what are we doing to them?
Turn on the TV, check out the iphones, facebooks and twitters… The toys get bigger and better and the kids get more and more lost and lonely. It’s so sad….
I ask them to write – actually type answers, reflections and thoughts. They really open up because they are typing on a computer and not sitting face to face. It doesn’t take an advanced degree in psych. to hear what they are crying out for.
Please pray with me for these kids….
We’re counting on them….let’s help them actually DO what we thought we were going to do way back when in our college days….
There is something beyond the shrugs of the shoulders, the rolls of the eyes, the glazed expressions…look inside….that’s where God lives….in them….in us.
Welcome back! What an excellent reflection on our need to always remember everyone in prayer. May the young people be led to people who are good mentors and may we all see Christ in each person we meet.
Ah, the great pleasure of seeing you here again! How nice to see you! Welcome back, Andie!
Great to have you back again Andie.
Yes, these kids need our prayers – the church and the world they inherit is a radically different one from the one I grew up in. No easy answers…
Yes, Andie….so true, just about every family I know is having some kind of huge challenge with their kids right now, mostly older kids, teenagers. They are so bombarded with so many things in our culture….they need help, and prayer! Lori
