Six Flags

We went on a trip to Six Flags with the youth group this weekend. (For more details and some pictures, see Brenda's blog.) We had a large variety of people in our group, and we all had a great time. I was amazed at how well everyone got along. Not just got along, but thoroughly enjoyed one another and encouraged each other. The body of Christ is amazing, even in something as seemingly trivial and unimportant as a trip to Six Flags. We all saw Christ in each other and, hopefully, those around us saw Christ in us as well.

Thanks to all our chaperones that made this trip possible; you guys are the best!

Conversations with Andrea

I know, I know. It's been a while. *hangs head in shame*

For our family Bible reading in the mornings, we've been reading about the life of Abraham. The other day, we were reading Genesis 22, which is where God tests Abraham by asking him to sacrifice Isaac. When we had finished reading, Mom, Taylor and I began discussing who we would least like to be in the story: Abraham or Isaac.

Me: I would NOT like to be Abraham in that story!

Taylor: Yeah, but I think I'd rather be him than Issac.

Mom: I'd rather be Isaac and have my father do that to me than to do it to one of my kids.

Andrea: I just wouldn't want to be the goat!

She's so logical. =D
