May means celebration. May means sunshine. May means summer is here. Everyone is always happy to see May.
May also means you close up shop on alot of things. Sometimes permanently; sometimes just for a little while.
In this case, it’s “see-ya-in-August” to Young Life Club at the Ragsdale’s. It’s been such a blessing to have a place we could call “home” every Thursday night, rather than b-boppin’ from house-to-house each week. Becky Ragsdale is an angel. She never fails to have six different flavors of ice-cream to choose from for dessert…and for us indecisive folk, this is a blessing in and of itself! More than that, she opens her home to us each week in order that we might welcome kids from Webb in hopes of sharing the Gospel with them. No matter if there are fifteen or fifty kids there, that basement is always filled to the brim with laughter and absolute chaos…(unless we sing “Drops of Jupiter” and then the boys suddenly cooperate.) I’m so thankful for the way the Lord went before us and met us there each week. To top it all off, I am beyond thankful for my teammates that walk along side of me. They constantly blow me away with their encouragement, their wisdom, and their passion to share Life with students at Webb.
Last weekend, Young Life leaders from across Knoxville gathered together at Two Rivers Pavilion where we got to celebrate by playing and eating and praising the Lord for his endless faithfulness and provision this year.
