The last few weeks have been crazy busy. Crazy – but oh so fun!
Once again Jan and I worked with the Youth Group to put on a Valentine banquet for the church. We planned and prepared a meal and then provided some after dinner entertainment.
And boy did we entertain them!
It was epic!
People are still talking about the hilarious skits that left the audience rolling with laughter.
A synchronized swimming team with zebra bath caps from the dollar store that brought down the house. A cowboy ballerina in hat and boots – participating in a homespun talent show.
Judged by a panel of “local” celebrities.
And won by a wig wearing pastor-impersonator.
While people may still chuckle about our finale – a parody of the 70’s hit – Staying Alive that we called Staying Awake……the memories that make my heart happy and still bring tears to my eyes are the behind the scene moments that nobody else saw.
The youth group kids that quietly cleaned up the massive mess in the kitchen after we made Oreo cookie and strawberry ice cream desserts.
The servant hearts that washed dishes, vacuumed floors, organized props, cleaned up costumes, set up mikes, found music, moved chairs and hauled tables.
The tender hearts who prayed before practices and really loved each other.
That is what I will remember.
