Yay God!

Let everything that has breath praise the Lord.  Hallelujah!–Psalm 150

On our Youthworks mission trip to Kansas City last summer, we spent time each night sharing “Goooooals!” (great things we saw each other do that day) and “Yay Gods!” (great things we saw God do that day).  Today, I’m going to have a “Yay God!” blog post:

Yay God for . . .

Your funny and faithful people.  Who are such good sports when their pastor does something silly like forget that they install council members immediately after electing them, thus ensuring that the installation is brief (since she forgot her occasional services book and doesn’t know all the words).

Your bountiful creation.  Which provides material for a bountiful Annual Meeting Potluck, from deviled eggs to hot dish to jello salad to something that is apparently called “cheese salad” and is truly spectacular.

Your overcast skies.  Which may or may not be responsible for the gloriously long nap a certain toddler took today, allowing her tired parents to take one, too (even the parent that crept in after said meeting and potluck).  God is good.  All the time!

P.S. If you think my “Yay Gods!” sound like “Gooooooals!”, you may be right.  God has this funny way of working through means, and sometimes the means are people.

  1. Cheese salad sounds like a member of the ham salad family (finally diced ham mixed with stuff). Midwestern people have a talent for chopping up random ingredients and making into a cohesive whole with the universal binders of jello and mayo.


    • It has at least three kinds of cheese, broccoli, cauliflower, black olives, and a dressing that appears to be mayo-based. There was a special, smaller container of it without chicken, and I got to eat that yesterday and take the extra home. I cannot wait to have it for lunch. Seriously, is 10 AM too early?
