An offer you can't refuse

After scouts were over today, I was discussing a few things with our cookie mom (whom I would smother with grateful kisses, if that wouldn't be weird, which it totally would be) when Sister Betty Ann walked by. She stopped and listened to us talk, and then during a pause in the conversation asked, "Who is in charge of the Daisies?". I volunteered that I am in charge, although I use that term loosely. Then she said, "Jesus wants me to talk to you about helping out at vacation bible school", and then smiled her sweet smile. We all chuckled a bit, and then she lifted the hem of her habit a couple of inches and literally danced away, saying, "I know you're busy, so I'll talk to you more seriously another time. But remember, Jesus wants you to follow him! And right now he's leading you to VBS!".

I love Sister Betty Ann - she is so full of joy and sweetness. How can I resist? Well, depending on the schedule, I might have to resist, but it will be awfully hard to. Especially since it was Jesus' idea. :)

Wow! Sister Betty Ann knows just the right thing to say. I don't think I could refuse an offer like that either.
