WORKIN' 9-5...

Well..not really.

Just on Sundays, in the cafe, after service.

But, not me.

It's my 10 year old son, Eli.

You see, he felt led to serve (help) in the church cafe...

Mopping the floor and cleaning tables.

And not for money. And definitely not for recognition.

He wants to do it because he likes to clean, and ultimately, he's doing it for the Lord.

He started yesterday, and he literally takes his job seriously!

To him, this is the real deal, and he's so happy to have his first job!

Where did this boy come from???

And of course, I had to take a picture of him on his first day. He was like, "Hurry up!"

The heart of a servant has bloomed and is off & running.

This is so neat. God bless his heart.

That is so cool that he has found a way to serve! I think it is a valuable lessons that few kids seem to learn now.
