Yesterday I was reminded of what a wonderful job I have. Every Summer we have an event every month called, Terrific Tuesday (I know, I know, I inherited the name…) At Terrific Tuesday’s we go somewhere in town just to have fun. Read that again, JUST TO HAVE FUN! There is no spiritual implication beyond just helping kids form relationships with others from church, and gives them something to bring their friends to.
Yesterday we went to Joyland. It’s a great small town amusement park. We rent the entire park for 2 hours, and it’s a great time of riding rides without waiting in line. We took over 100 kids to the park, and even let a few parents come along. I rode roller coasters, I slid down water slides, I drank Capri Suns, I floated in the Sky Lift, and I had a great time. As I was sitting in the Sky Lift I was thinking about how wonderful it is that I have a job that pays me to play with kids. Not all that I do is fun-filled, but when push comes to shove I really do have the best job in the world!
