I was conversing with a parent as children were being signed in for Kids Church last Sunday. A sixteen year old girl walked up to me from my left side. As I turned I recognized her. She had grown up in the children’s ministry and had returned as a visitor. I don’t see her very often anymore since she normally attends a different church with her family. We shared a hug and a smile and expressed how wonderful it was to see each other again. Time flies. The shared moments are precious as they grow up. It is especially at times like these that I remember why I do what I do. Thank you Lord for reminding me yet again.
