The Little Buckaroo's and I spent 8 hours at our church on Friday with a few other ladies decorating for the Girls of Grace simulcast. The Buckaroo's did great! They watched the DVD player I brought, colored, played cowboys (is it alright to have pistols in a sanctuary?), dinosaurs, and "helped" us prepare for a wonderful day for teenage girls in our community.
The conference was fabulous and I pray that it touched these girls. Chris Wheeler, a youth minister out of Nashville, TN was awesome. As a big brother, he shot it straight with the girls. He reminded/told them that they are all God's princesses and that the young men that they are around in school are not and will not be ready until some point during or after college to be the MEN that they want them to be for them. They are just BOYS and until they become MEN they are not prepared to treat them how they deserve to be treated. He went on to tell them that only a man can help a boy become a man, they can not. At this time in their lives, their dad's should be the one that is showing them that they are princesses, that they are special and worthy. But, isn't it sad how many young ladies don't have a Godly man in their life that is doing that for them? It breaks my heart.
The Point of Grace ladies were wonderful! I highly recommend this conference to any of you out there that have teenage girls.
I am now recuperated from a few days of pink and purple, daisy's and butterflies. I am back to reality with my gun-toting, dinosaur playing Little Buckaroo's. How blessed I am to have a husband that is growing these two boys into the men God created them to be.
I must go de-glitter some more, or actually, maybe I will just leave it so I will shine like the princess God made me.
