I swear I'm not crazy.....

Although my hair is still green. And I am thinking about persuading Layni to retouch it before Monday. I think I am going to make it my summer thing. Or maybe my all the time thing, maybe I'll change colors or something. It is after all a patch of grey, distiguished and not obnoxious, but when it's a different color it makes me unique and fun, so for now it's my thing. Until I get my nose pierced cause I want to, and I'm not sure I can wait until I'm 40 cause that's 2 years away. I might lose my sense of adventure before then.

Another session of Alpha has come to an end. Great mix of women this round. When we combined tables we had all sorts of ages so that was fun. Ton's of lives changed, actually all of them expressed some kind of significant change which is always shocking to me since it's so gradual, the whole time almost every alpha I'm thinking these people think I'm wack they won't be back. Apparently God show's up and speaks through me and they return week after week. It's a bittersweet feeling thinking this will be my last Alpha for a while. I'll miss the connection with folks. I'm naturally an introvert and being an Alpha table facilitator forces me out of my comfort zone in a natural kind of way. Now I am transferring my focus to cubscouts, a whole different world, I'm sure it will be a fun adventure. So this being the last week of Alpha I'm like woohoo freetime.....ummmmm nope. SOS starts on Monday, how'd that happen....my good heavens these people need to start paying me! LOL....just kidding I get paid in Gods love that's for sure, and being able to serve and have fun doesn't seem like it should be legal. Teenagers still scare me, but not as much as they did last year, this year I know what to expect so I feel more ready. And 2 of my Alpha table participants are going to be team leaders so that's super cool, I'm excited to get feedback from their experiences. I'm volunteering EVERYNIGHT cause I am that crazy!!! So pray that my family survives and still loves me when it's all over. I'm prayer team all week except Monday I'm easing my way in to it doing hospitality.....but I'll still need prayer. Pray for the whole week how about that. Considering there was a black out last year the first night and they just had one in the area on Sunday right before the 11:30 service.....UGH....causes crazy chaos when you got several 100 teenagers wandering aimlessly....several thousand adults is a little crazy too. Much prayer please.....
