Courtney from Lil Light O Mine came up with the idea of sharing One Big Truth God has taught us with a before and after photo. Kelly, from Kelly's Korner, is also hosting a linky party. This all started yesterday but I couldn't think of my One Big Truth. And then this morning it hit me.
I started attending my church when I was 23. I got baptized, and became a member, there on Easter Sunday 1997, shortly before I turned 25. And then I started teaching Sunday School. I somehow ended up with the four year old class. And then I kept on teaching. I think I taught about four or five classes of four year olds so I got to know those families quite well. And a lot of those parents were around my age while I was still single and longing for marriage and a family.
I didn't get married until I was 36 and a lot of those families celebrated at our wedding with Dave and I. And they celebrated with us again when Sam and Rachel were born.
Last night I was at LOGOS, our church's mid-week program, and I am a table parent for the Junior Youth right now. That means I get to eat supper with them. Rachel is our Table Baby :) And I saw those kids I had taught when they were four, taking care of my daughter. And some of those other four year olds are currently our babysitters. And this morning my one big truth hit me.
