Maybe…just maybe…

There has been a lot going on the past few days – many thoughts, activities, etc., but tonight was a treat.  John and I went to hear the Northern Lights Youth Choir sing at Calvary Bible Church in Meredith.  Years ago, in another life (or another lifetime) John and I were a part of the lives of many of these kids, their siblings and the adults involved with the choir.  As I sat there recognizing many of the faces I had not seen in almost 9 years, tears came to my eyes.  I was proud of them, their families and what God was doing in and through them.  Some of these kids were born, accepted the Lord and were baptized when John pastored in Maine.  I taught many of these kids in Junior Church.  It had been a long time since I had seen them.  My heart rejoiced as I got hugs from many of them (thank you kids).  Sometimes you wonder if your life has made a difference in the lives of others…tonight I wondered if maybe, just maybe, God had used the good (and bad) of our lives to make a small difference in these beautiful lives.  I pray He is using us now – I believe He is using me with my kids at school.  Thank you God.

    Yes Joy – God did use your family to touch many lives back in the day when you were involved with these families. I know that my life is better because of you and John and your girls!

    It is a wonderful thing for you to have had the opportunity to touch them and be touched by them again.

    Heaven will be a wonderful place…don’t you think?
