Drama season has gotten to the point where your weeks are measured by when you go to drama and when you come home. My sisters and I are going to paint set from 2:30 'til 4:00, then we're actually practicing the play from 4:00 until 8:30. Tomorrow isn't much better and the next day... Well, that's our first production of The Sound of Music, so I try not to think that far just yet. It's still a little too daunting.
Something that I've been thinking about this week, is how much I love the drama peeps. A couple days ago we started talking about how that day people were getting kind of stressed out and how much easier it was for us to remain cheerful and calm because of our parents who have always taught us to take everything to God. And I realized how much I long for each and every one of them to know how much God loves them and follow Him. It got me thinking about how I am a very open person, and wear my heart on my sleeve, but yet I seem to bypass talking about the one thing that matters to me most ALL the time. I feel like because I love both God and the people at drama so much, it's my duty to both to tell them about God.
I'm so thankful that I have my three older sisters who are constantly giving me examples of reaching out to people and being really honest about their belief in Jesus. Even though I am still figuring out how to incorporate God into the conversation, I can rely on them to do just that, thus giving me the opportunity to talk about God.
My hope and prayer is that in these VERY last crunch days we will shine God's peace and strength through everything we say and do.
