First Lego League North Idaho

Today was a great day volunteering with FLL again in the Regional Competition in Post Falls, ID. I was a technical judge for the Robot Design and it was a total blast. The kids got a little bored after the first 3 hours (I was there from 7:20am until 5:00pm) Jordan finally left with Uncle Dan and Andy at about noon. If you have kids ages 8 thru 14 I would highly recommend you get them involved in First Lego League!

My kids say that I volunteer for too many things and after a day like today I have to disagree with them. You cannot give too much of yourself to others because you get so much more in return. I haven’t tested this theory but that is my gut feel. Today I spent several hours to enrich the lives of over 500 kids. Talk about return on investment!

I don’t deserve the wonderful, awesome, blessings that God continually showers upon me. I don’t always feel that they are blessings in the midst of outward confusion or chaos but I am learning that, despite outward appearances, the inner truth is always the same. He is blessing me. Whether it is simply by the assurance that He is with me and I am not alone. That by itself is a blessing! I am not alone, ever! Emmanuel!
