When Nick’s cancer came back in 2006, we decided that having college kids over to the house was just more than we could handle. So, other than little visits from time to time, we stopped having discipleship groups and game nights.
Our five kid had loved these kinds of night for the 16 years before this, so it was a big change for our family but one we felt was necessary so that we could focus on the huge and difficult journey ahead of us.
Four years have passed since our lives were turned upside down by cancer, and truthfully, I’m not sure our lives will ever be totally “right side up” again while on this planet.
However, Tim and I decided to place ourselves in the faculty auction this year and offer a night of games and snacks to a group of college kids.
And I just wanted to share a few memories from last night with you. You will see as you scroll down that Olivia had so much fun! It was hard not having any of our boys here for the night…..time has changed so many things in our home. But, it was great to see Olivia laughing with college kids and getting very “serious” about the game of Bunko. She even dug out some Halloween gear to prepare for the competition.
I’m thankful this morning for the gift of laughter and since I forgot to do my Multitude Monday, please let me share a Thankful Tuesday by adding to last week’s Monday list through this blog post.
14. College kids who love Jesus
16. College kids that pop in just to see what’s going on and then stay for awhile to visit.
17. Halloween costumes that can be used anytime
22. God’s grace which allows us to do things we thought we could never do……
With God all things are possible…………..
Praying the impossible becomes possible for you today through God’s power,
