Wow!  March is here–can you believe it?  I just watched the neatest story on the news.  They’re talking about a guy who used to be in trouble a lot and is now Student Body President.  That’s sure something to think about, and to take notice.  Some of the kids who we think of as “TROUBLE” really could do a big turnaround.  Have you seen kids who have already made big changes?  Of course, the reverse happens, too–kids who used to be really great suddenly turn into the “BAD” kids.  It’s all about feeling like you fit in somewhere, isn’t it?  I was a really good girl most of my life, but for a year in high school I desperately needed to feel like I belonged somewhere, and it didn’t turn out to be a good group.  Thank God that He pulled me out of there, and my senior year was awesome.  Oh, please pray for your friends who have chosen the “wrong” group—take a chance to make a difference for them, and reach out to them.  Be a friend.

Bernie and I saw “Man of the House” last night—it was really good.  We knew nothing about it, but it still had tickets available when we got there.  We took Chip and Beth, and they saw “Hitch.”  I think they liked it.  Alex R. met them there and rode with us to take Beth home.  Chip and Beth are definitely a very cute couple and seem to enjoy being together.  We’ll have to let Beth borrow our Napoleon Dynamite, though, or she’ll think Bernie and Chip are just goofy!   I got to meet Beth’s mom, Leah, and she and I have an awful lot in common.  She loves the Lord—that was evident.  Oh, do you want to see how cute they are? 

Have a great weekend.  Oh, our youth group starts a series on SEX….if you need to learn about it, with a Christian perspective, please join us.  We eat dinner at 5:30 and start the discussion at 6:00.  Let me know if you want to come!
