Sang and spoke at another Kid’s Club this morning, this time in Brighton.
Really great time and I was asked to sing ‘Wolfy Wolfy’ twice as it seemed to be one of the children’s and leaders favourite songs!
Still a few more Summer Kid’s Clubs to go before this summer ends!
But I have been thinking.
Here I am clocking in at 67 in a few days time, although because of my 3 years of Chemo the Docs say my actual body age is 5 years older…WHAT…72!
And yet here I am still singing and speaking to children…the white haired OAP Grandpa Glorie!
I’ll be honest with you, over the past few years I have not been asked to do hardly any Children’s ministry and I had resolved myself to the fact that I was now too old for this and that my days ministering to children were now over. That is why I’ve concentrated ministering far more to adults recently, which I also love doing.
Well, I must not grumble…I’ve had a good innings, over 36 years of Kids work so I can’t complain.
Then this year, in come the Kids Clubs bookings again and so now I’m back trying to remember my children’s songs and even harder trying to remember… and do the actions that go with them!
Although I do tend to get a tad more tired than I did 30 years ago, I still so love singing and speaking to children.
When I was resurrected from Leukaemia 8 or so years ago, I again repeated to God the prayer that I first prayed when I became a Christian, Lord whatever you want me to do, I will try to put all my energy into doing it!
So that’s it then.
As long as invitations keep coming in and the body and mind stay capable, I will carry on doing what I so enjoy doing…that is a variety of different events… including ministering to children!
