We've been running a VBS (Vacation Bible School) program at our church this week. It began on Sunday night and today is our final night. It is exhausting and exhilarating all at the same time.
There is a lot of work involved in this project every year. There is planning, training, set up, decorations, nightly prep and activity, and then take down. All of which should be accomplished by folks younger than we, but they seem to be in short supply these days for some reason. Anyway-that's another topic for another blog. So, it's exhausting because it's a lot of work, but exhilarating because it's so much fun once the kids are there and they're excited about it.
So much in life is like that. The exhilaration of a performance makes up for the hard work of the preparation. Makes all the work worthwhile. Thankfully.
