Happy fall y’all! Sometimes its weird to think it’s fall out here because of our weather. To be able to see some colors on the trees, you have to drive a couple of hours away. But something that has changed is how early it gets dark here. A little after 5:30 p.m. is when the sun is down; that means I try to plan more indoor things for my teen girls Bible study.
Lately it’s been a little hard keeping the Bible study going because of the school sports my girls are in. They had basketball tryouts these past couple of weeks on Thursday nights. But the last two weeks we have been able to get together. We are still talking on the subject of love–how to love God and how to love each other. Every week I start off with a question for them, “How did you show love this week to someone?” Sometimes their answer will be, “I did the dishes for my mom,” which is awesome! But this past week one of them told me, “I ate lunch with a girl at school who was sitting all alone because people don’t like her.” To see God working in them is awesome!
They also have been working on memorizing 1 Corinthians 13:4. Perhaps you know it? “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.” They were able to tell me it by memory this last time. To see these girls starting from, “Why would we love someone that we don’t like?” to “I sat with a girl at school because no one else was showing love to them,” is God working in them!
