I feel a deep sense of love and caring every time I walk into the Y.
I absolutely love our YMCA. I actually worked at the Y during my first semester of college when we only had a tiny front office, pool and exercise room. Now as I walk into the new facility I am overwhelmed by how blessed we are as a community to have such a beautiful, well designed place.
But the very best part of the Y is the staff. I believe God chose each of them to be part of the Y family - I feel a deep sense of love and caring every time I walk into the Y. The encouragement, instruction and brutal challenges (you know who you are) from the staff are a phenomenal blessing to me and I'm sure to many others.
Even though I may not always be consistent or sign up and not show up, I always feel welcomed back and loved when I do go back. I think that's how the body of believers ought to be. So thank you for all that you do and the example that you set.
