A VERSE, etc., and It’s Over
Yesterday was my last day at school. No, really. I know I’ve said that before, but this time I really mean it. The third and last week of preschool camp is finished, finito, Beendet, terminado, fini, afgewerkt, acabado, avsluttet, законченный. So in celebration I offer today’s verse.
Alright. So Jesus isn’t really telling me to rejoice and leap for joy because I’m through working. He’s actually telling his disciples to rejoice when they’re persecuted for His sake. Hey! I can make the stretch and say in all honesty I WAS persecuted for His sake.
There were eleven three-year-olds in my care for five days at a church-sponsored preschool camp. I was working for Jesus. And while I did enjoy these kids, there were times when I was definitely being persecuted. At least once a day. Ergo, I was being persecuted for Jesus’ sake!
And this, folks, is why I will never be a theologian.
heeee. I love your theology. Good clean fun. And you know what? Even giving a cup of cold water in Jesus’ name to a child is important to Him, so really, the rewards in heaven are a reason to rejoice!!!Hooray for being done with preschoolers!can’t wait to see what’s around the corner for our Jenster!
You done a good thing, Jenster. They’re the richer for it.
BIG jewels in your crown, babe, for you have worn the thorns of 11 3 year olds. 🙂 xxxooogretchen
Enjoy your much deserved respite.
What? I totally followed your theology. Preschoolers = persecution.
Woo hoo school is over! Enjoy your summer, and yes Jen, rejoice. Have a great week.
LOL – You did good! Eleven three year olds?? Oy!
