My fridge is filling up with a collection of graduation announcements. It’s hard to believe this season is upon us already. However, more than any other year, this class of 2013 is special to me. My very first children’s class that I taught at Bethel Church are now this graduating class of seniors. At the time they were 4th graders about to enter their 5th grade year. I had no clue if I was going to like Children’s Ministry and this class of girls made me fall in LOVE with it! It’s been a blessing to watch them grow into the lovely young ladies they are today. It’s amazing to see how much potential they have and I am excited for how God is going to direct their steps in the future. The biggest blessing for me is that I’ve been allowed to be along for the ride. I have remained close to many in this class and it’s been a joy to watch them grow spiritually over the years. They are an exceptionally class! Apart from my own graduating class of 2004, this class of 2013 might be my favorite class. They have shaped my life in so many ways. I’m blessed to have been a part of their lives for this season. I’m praying God’s blessing on them as they head out into the world and spread their wings to fly. There are some serious world-changers in this bunch. I can’t wait to see what is next for them! Congratulations to the class of 2013! You did it!
