Fireworks A-MEN

In the summer of 2018 the Cleveland Metro Area Board of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes held a football camp with the Glenville High School football team. Several of us were involved as Huddle Leaders for this camp. When the athletes came in for lunch, we broke into groups of about 10. Before lunch, the Huddle Leaders led the young men in Bible study. It was my first time doing this, and I was a little apprehensive. It turned out that that I had nothing to be concerned about. I said to the young men in my Huddle, “Before we start the Bible Study, let’s pray.” Everyone leaned in close around the table, put their arms around each other, and then pulled me into the Huddle as well. A short prayer got us started. When we finished the Bible study for the day, I said, “OK, let’s close in prayer. Who wants to pray?” “I will,” said one. “I will,” said another. No coaxing was necessary. These young men were eager to learn and eager to pray.

Sometime in the past I had learned the Fourth of July Fireworks AMEN. So I taught it to these young athletes. You raise your arms quickly saying “Wooosh”, then a loud Clap over your head, followed by slowly lowering your hands and moving your fingers, simulating bright fireworks falling to the ground, and saying “Ahaaa”. All this followed by an enthusiastic “A-MEM” So it sounds like this “ Wooosh, Clap, Ahaaa, A-MEM” Every time we prayed the young men would always remind me to lead our Huddle in the Fireworks A-MEN. The other huddles would always look over to us to see what was going on. It seems to me there is everything right with a loud, enthusiastic A-MEM.

Awesome blog! Do you have any suggestions for aspiring
writers? I'm hoping to start my own blog soon but I'm a little
lost on everything. Would you recommend starting with a free platform like Wordpress
or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I'm
completely overwhelmed .. Any suggestions?

Он был ошарашен, когда вместо того, чтобы стонать, тяжело дышать, он увидел на моем лице испуг, и почувствовал, как порвал целку.
Крови было не много, я вытерла её рукой, а он снова вошел, прошептав, что все будет хорошо.

Дальше только ласки, и мягкое скольжение.
Кажется, это был идеальный первый секс.
