I wrote a long post the other day, but lost it and didn't have time to retype it as I was on the way out the door. My boys are on Fall Retreat, coming home today. Every year about this time, Minnesota has what they call MEA (Minnesota Education Association) weekend and all of the schools in Minnesota have Thursday and Friday off, and many also have off Wednesday. This is MEA weekend and our church sends the 7-12 graders on a retreat in Northern Minnesota. They left about 5:45 on Wednesday and are scheduled to be home between 4 and 5 this afternoon. That means that their regular Sunday night River (9-12 youth group) will not meet tonight.
I have not gotten as much done with them gone as I planned, but my before and after school job works longer hours on days without school. I was home ill on Wednesday, but went to the Corn Maze with the kids on Thursday. Our group did not actually go through the maze, but we played in the corn pit (where I got buried except my head by the kids), went to the petting zoo, and watched a wildlife show. On Friday, I was scheduled after they got back from their field trip to Mill City, a museum of an old flour mill in downtown Minneapolis.

"We are not sinners because we sin, we sin because we are sinners."You have wearied the LORD with your words.
“How have we wearied him?” you ask.
By saying, “All who do evil are good in the eyes of the LORD, and he is pleased with them” or “Where is the God of justice?”
