Jesus Wants Me For A Sunbeam
I finally have a church calling. I am now the primary teacher of seven very active three-year-olds. This group of children has never been in Sunday school before, they have always been in the nursery. Today was their first ever sunbeam class. It was trying to keep all of their attention, especially when my co-teacher seems to think that their attentions spans are twenty minutes, not three. But it worked out and I have the lesson next week so I think things will go somewhat smoother. The best part was during sharing time the teacher stood up to give her testimony and (true to form) started crying. She said "When I came in to church and heard your little voices I got all weepy." To which one of my sunbeams said very loudly: "Me too!" It was wonderful.
