Friendships and Agape Peacemakers

It still amazes me how intertwined we become in each others lives -- connections that are made and sometimes are broken and those that last forever. I actually believe, even if a connection is broken it will never be forgotten. When we become part of someone's life, there will always be a piece of us forever connected to that person - it's incredible really.

Watching the kids interact last Friday was so cool. Witnessing their friendships growing and how they relate to each other - every situation so unique. (Pictures : Kids playing simon says with block colors and - BEAD Pics : creating an entire world, complete with animals, out of beads -- all put together without my hinting - and welcoming to all - pretty beautiful)

On Thursday, we gave our group the official name of 'Agape Peacemakers'. This was the kids choice and they feel we can rise to the occasion. I believe, with God's help, we can too. This world can be a very ugly place and hard and incredibly unfair...  but it can also be quite beautiful - I pray for strength in myself and the kids to see the heart before the action and to find compassion and always be thankful - for it's only by God's grace any of us are even here. Amen.

The Lord bless you and keep you; The Lord make His face shine upon you, And be gracious to you; The Lord lift up His countenance upon you, And give you peace. Numbers 6:24-26

Back to School!?!?!? - Well not quite yet but getting closer!

Hi and hope everyone is having a very blessed summer. Although I'm not 100% ready to roll into the new school year yet, the anticipation of fall is starting to build. It's always exciting to see what Jesus will unfold through our time together. I pray that we are all able to grow in faith and love and that He will guide our time together.

A little bit of business.

First off we are looking to set up a work day either August 18 or 25. Can you please text or email me (or comment below) which day may work better. We can use all the help we can get. Projects include : tinning back side of roof, new back door, replacing front sidewalk with pavers, and painting outside. Also, could you tell me which project you might be interested in helping with. There will be some overlap -- but it would be good to have an idea so people can bring tools as needed.

I have posted this year's school calendar to the Upcoming Events. Please take note. Also our daily schedule has changed some so plea…

Thank you to everyone for a great day and wonderful year. I continue to feel very blessed to work with and grow in faith with the children and families of BCS. The community of people God has put together is so beautiful.  Thank-you God for blessing us!

Psalm 28:7 The Lord is my strength and shield. I trust him with all my heart. He helps me, and my heart is filled with joy. I burst out in songs of thanksgiving.

I'm going to launch right into the bible reading for the summer. I think everyday should start and end with Jesus -- and if you fill up the middle with Him too, it's a magical recipe... and only one ingredient necessary! :) Jesus. 

If you don't read this post right away and feel like you are behind - don't worry! and most of all don't give up! Just join the reading for the day.  We read the New Living Translation (NLT) Bible at home and at school. But you are welcome to read any version you prefer. The best translation is the one you read! :) Here is a lin…
