something we have done with different youth groups (usually in sunday school or back home group meetings at camp) is to list your pow (worst thing about the day/week), wow (best part of day/week), and holy cow (time that you felt closet to God…like holy cow that was amazing). since this weekend was a long one with a lot of things going on i think that this is the best way to do this past weekend update.
wow: got to see 7 youth graduate from GHS (2 of them spoke at it) and the graduates got to throw their caps and spray each other with silly string!
pow: wanted to get to bed early so we could be on the road early – but still got in bed really late.
holy cow: the moon was amazing as we were leaving. we saw it coming over the mountain and it was a simply beautiful reminder to me that God is good.
wow: we got to go back to charlotte and left on time (for us).
pow: it was a long drive because otis didn’t want to ride in the back and because he wouldn’t lay down on my lap.
holy cow: being surrounded by family and friends.
wow: got to hang out with everyone at the track and had a great breakfast.
pow: didn’t win the race pool and made cj (our niece cry) – she was tired and ready to leave and i messed with her anyways. 😦
holy cow: two of the youth from monroe came to eat with us and see us and it was a great reminder of the time we spent with them and the faith journey we all went on together.
wow: hung out with sandy and ginger, otis slept in the back of the car the entire way home, stopped at montreat and black mountain (got a new pair of sun glasses), no work which means a short work week!
pow: traffic was bad and a ton of police were out and i was nervous (but thankfully we didn’t get pulled over or that would have been worse) and i helped andy make his to do list for the week and his pack list for his first summer trip and it made me sad (even though i love lists). also on this trip there was little time to get together with other people.
holy cow: going through the gates at montreat.
the rest of this week is going to be crazy. there is so much to do with andy’s summer ramping up. we had the pool party (end of year) with the youth and the rest of his nights are full of meetings. we had a great weekend in charlotte and safe travels and great conversation and visits so even though my post isn’t full of fluff it was still wonderful.
