Last week I was on vacation. We spent the first few days with no major contact to the outside world. We pretty much turned our phones off other than to shoot a few things for Facebook and never turned the television on or looked at a paper. We left Disney on Tuesday night and headed to Kelly’s dad’s house. Kelly’s dad loves to watch the news and so we went from no news to bad news pretty quickly.
Vacation Bible School is a lot of work. It costs a lot of money. It requires a lot of volunteers. It’s exhausting to organize. So why do it? There are many benefits! It transforms our campus into another world – one where the imagination can run with the year’s theme. It encourages volunteers to give their best, to test their limits and give past what they thought they could.
I’m a dad. And I love being a dad… but it’s scary.
This past week has been a weird one at our house. My oldest daughter was in Guatemala on a mission trip, my second daughter was away at youth camp, and my youngest daughter spent a few nights at Grandma’s house. So, if you don’t know me personally, now you know that I have three daughters. Yep, I live in an estrogen palace.
