I realized the last few weeks how excited I was for church, but not for what I would have ever expected. I love the worship, sermon, and people but what I have been missing most every week are the kids in my class. I was blessed to be placed with the best kids ever, I teach the 4-5 year olds. I think the reason I like it so much is because of my lack of physical touch in my normal life. This may sound weird or creepy but, we were created to touch, hug and love each other but there are not really any appropriate times for touching someone unless you are married or maybe dating, depending on the person. I mean I might get a hug here or there throughout my week but that only lasts a few seconds. These kids want to be hugged and loved for an hr and a half. I guess I just didn’t realized how love starved I was with having no family around. It feels good having five little kids fighting to sit in your lap, for worship time; and when they all can’t fit they just sit so close to you that they are always touching you. They even come up to me outside the classroom to give me hugs; I wish we could all act like 5 year olds. I was talking to my friend after church today and didn’t realized a little girl from my class was waiting to get my attention, I knelt down and she gave me a big hug. I wish when I saw someone I knew I could give them a big hug and tell them I loved them.
I am so blessed to be able to share the Lord with His beautiful children.
