Is a sinful little word. It is what is wrong with America, the World, our marriages, our families, whatever.

But it is what I am feeling right now. I opened the paper up at work and on the front page of the East Polk section are some of the kids in the youth group. They’re in a play at school, and they were in the paper. I got this HUGE grin for like 15 minutes and felt a great deal of pride for having known them.

These are kids I teach at church in the paper for something positive. (unlike 3 weeks ago….I digress) These aren’t even MY kids, but they may as well be. I’ll probably explode if/when my kids make it in the paper. If pride goeth before a fall, look out. I’m proud of those kids!
