A few of you may know that I'm pinch hitting in our Student Ministry these days as we're in a transition phase. At 40 I never imagined that I'd be speaking to students again. I always told myself that when my own kids were in the student ministry it was probably time for me to be doing something else...but here I am, and right in the middle of a dating series.
The pain of my misfortunes and miscues long gone...the memories sandwiched somewhere between a Journey power ballad, Prince's 1999 and my fav 80's relationship movie, Some Kind of Wonderful.
I'm working off-site reading a dating book. (bet that looks kinda funny) The book is a great one, very much different from those I read back in the days of lock-ins and giant all you can eat pizza feeds. Datable raises some good points...
It (your crush/teen relationship) will not last
How much you put in = How much it hurts
The way it begins = The way it ends
Looking back on my experience I know they are right.....as a student back then I would have disagreed, strongly. Pray for me...PLEASE!
Last week I grew a zit right in the middle of my forehead....some call it stress...I'm chalking it up to a desire to relate.
