Well, VBS at my church is over. In a way, I'm relieved. I won't have to tell Micah to stop throwing sand, Rodney to stay in line or Miles to stop playing and pay attention. On the other hand, there is one kid in particular I'm really going to miss: Ethan.

When he first came in, he was so shy, and cried for his Aunt Patty as soon as we got on the playground. In fact, he left and went to her class for the rest of the day. The next day, he lasted a little longer: until after play time was done. Patty stayed with with our class this time. The rest of the week, though, we were able to make it without her. And this kid isn't really much for play. We sat and talked most of the time, about Teen Titans, the rocks he got from Yellowstone, shamrocks, Jesus and other assorted things. But I finally got him to play a little today...although...he insisted he push me while I was on the swing. We also played on the seesaw. I'm pretty sure he developed a crush on me during the week, because he kissed my hand before I left today. Poor kid ^^;

Not looking forward to getting up at 5am, but Seth (student minister) wants us to get to KY as soon as we can and start inviting people to Bible school. Though I'm not looking forward to the lack of sleep, it's going to be amazing!

Well...I still have a few things to pack. Type at ya in a little over a week.

EDIT: I can't believe I forgot to mention the haircut! Ok, quick over view: layered, shoulder length with *gasp* bangs! Ok, so they are long and cut at an angle, but they are still bangs, and my mom can't believe I asked for them! Ok, for real now, bye!

I really struggle sometimes with how to moderate some of my communities. I try not to judge other people, and I guess I do a good job of that most of the time. Sometimes, though, I wonder if I'm being a fluff-bunny about it because I'm afraid of being viewed as judgmental.

Example...recently, on another blog site, someone requested to join my gothic Christian community. On her profile, the girl said she's bisexual, and in one of her posts, that she's looking for a girlfriend. Now granted, I can't say if this girl is a Christian or not...but it bothers me. I don't say that from a judgmental standpoint at all. I used to be the same way. I gave up my bisexual lifestyle because I know God views it as sin, and I just couldn't take that dark cloud hanging over my relationship with Him, and I don't see how any other Christian could do that, either. Same with any other sin, whether homosexual sin, heterosexual sin, lying, cheating, stealing, coveting (ow, my toes!)...it's all the same to God, and it should eat away at us until we can't do those things anymore.

The reason I struggle with this so much is I realize we all (Christians) have freedom in Christ, and that we don't have to obey. The only problem is, I don't see how anyone could know Christ and not want to.

Needless to say...I've yet to come to a decision about the girl.
