Act of Service

I wanted to acknowledge two special girls. These girls have watched Taylynn and Preston every wednesday night for months now. And they have done it as an act of service.

On Wednesday nights we had youth group bible study, which has ended for the summer. Carly and Maria, sixth graders from our church would come over and play with Taylynn and Preston. Aaron and I struggled when we first started the youth group because we were always in search for someone to watch our children. After LOTS AND LOTS of prayer we were blessed with these sweet little angels.

Taylynn LOVES the girls and would ask for them almost everyday. If I told her they were coming over she would say "and your going to leave?" Ha, she didn't want us there. It is a great feeling knowing they enjoy having the girls come over.

Next year the girls will be in the youth group, so we'll be praying for another blessing. By that time we'll have three, so I know it will be more difficult, but we know we can rely on God.

I love this verse because it is so easy to get caught up in your own world and do what YOU want to be doing instead of using your own time to serve.

Galatians 5:13

You, my brothers, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the sinful nature; rather, serve one another in love.

Thank you girls for being selfless and compassionate towards Taylynn and Preston. We'll miss you, but we'd love to spend time with you this summer.
