Youth work

I happen to be filling in various grant forms and dealing with money at the moment.

Youth work seems to be getting off to a slow start, especially since the breakfast club has just been cancelled due to them digging up the gas in leagrave high street... bummer. I still have to be here at 8 am on wednesday morning.

Things are starting to fall into place, with the youth group running itself for the moment! Lots of fun.

Having some thoughts about actually being a Lutonian again. Only in Luton can you find yourself at a bar and get told to cheer up by some one on your side of the bar and then the barman makes a comment about how you've pulled! Or to be walking from your car to dinner and get asked about whether you have a bloke! I find it disturbing that being confident and smiling gets that sort of response.

Currently reading a book aimed at girls that mirrors a book for boys. It's very interesting. I can say that I've learnt some stuff and disagreed with other things. But most of all I am starting to realise that I should not be worried about what I am doing so much. I've spent a lot of time focussing on me and am slowly coming to terms with the fact that I am beautiful.

It may sound really big headed, but I don't think that it is. I met some really beautiful people throughout my life and they give me the passion to keep going and striving towards God.

I'm not about to start using really bad cliches because I think we hear it too much, but you are beautiful! God loves you because he loves you because he loves you! Male and female, made in his image, how can that not be beautiful?

Try and say something encouraging to every one you meet today!
