I've never been on a blog before, and don't know if this is where i need to be or not! something happened today that i felt moved to share. having been a children's minister until my husband's job changed our location,and a subscriber to your magazine and workshop attender, i always thought i was sensitive to the invisible child. i have an invisible grandson, one who is unchurched unless i take him to vbs or other church outreach events. his family situation makes for a stay-in-the-apartment existance unless memaw takes him places. i took him to a church day camp this week. i came home and cried after i left him today and wrote this letter to the church. i think all children's ministers need to read it and think about that invisible child.

She took me into camp today.
Did you see me?
My teacher wasn't in the sanctuary.
Did you see me?
No one greeted me.
Did you see me?
It was the same thing yesterday and the day before.
Did you see me?
When I am on the playground, no one is near me.
Did you see me?
When I leave, no one tells me goodbye.
Did you see me?
She makes me come every day.
Did you see me?
I probably won't come Sunday.
Will you miss me?
When I look for Jesus, will He see me?

A lonesome child

thanks for letting me vent.

    It genuinely very complex in this full of activity life to listen news on Television, thus I just use internet for that purpose, and obtain the hottest news.
