John the Baptist. Jesus performs His first Miracle.

Hey all! How is the Bible reading going so far?

We have read about John the Baptist announcing the coming of our Messiah. Jesus appears on the scene and performs a miracle not long after. I never get tired of reading about the miracles of Jesus. This morning I was reminded that we all come face to face with challenges in our life - ones that seem impossible, and truthfully, they are impossible without Him. Some that we don't think are even worthy of Jesus' time -- there is alot to be said about Jesus' first miracle not being about something more controversial. He loves us so much -- all of our troubles are worth His time. He wants all of our burdens. We have a tendency to think only life and death matter but life is truly about the journey. He is a living and loving God, calling to us and ready to care for us... every day.  Godspeed.

Garbage Pickup. End of Year BBQ. Music. Evan's Graduation.

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…

Decorating God's World. Playing. Egg Drop.

We rounded out the year with the following bible verse:

Matthew 28:20 -- Lo, I am with you always, to the very end of the age. 
We prayed lots today for our community and the people living in it, for the school, and for God's light and love to fill those in need. We also prayed that we may help be lights in a dark world. Please join us in continuing this prayer through the summer and remember, God is always near.

Enjoy the pics! There were no successful egg drops, but some good tries!!! Also, the kids did a fantastic job spreading God's love with a little art and color. :)

Thank you to everyone for a good year. I'm excited for tomorrow to celebrate with the kiddos and the community of people God has brought together through the school.





















Psalm 139. Exploration. Silly Sentences. Clapping Song.

Psalm 139 OLord, you have examined my heart
and know everything about me.
2 You know when I sit down or stand up.
You know my thoughts even when I’m far away.
3 You see me when I travel
and when I rest at home.
You know everything I do.
4 You know what I am going to say
even before I say it, Lord.
5 You go before me and follow me.
You place your hand of blessing on my head.

We read Psalm 139 this week. I love knowing that David wrote this as a song - celebrating God's love -- that He goes before us and follows us. He loves us. He will not leave us. He knows the world crushes in on us -- He lived it... but He knows our thoughts. He's not asking us to be perfect but to know Him. We tend to always make it about us. He wants to offer us a break and David knows this and is singing to God a song of thanksgiving... praising Him for being ever-present. Let's join David! :) Amen!

Here are a couple pics from exploration. They make me smile. Also, after learning about giraffes, we played silly s…

Searching for Pearls

Matthew 13:44-4544 “The Kingdom of Heaven is like a treasure that a man discovered hidden in a field. In his excitement, he hid it again and sold everything he owned to get enough money to buy the field. 45 “Again, the Kingdom of Heaven is like a merchant on the lookout for choice pearls.46 When he discovered a pearl of great value, he sold everything he owned and bought it! This week the kids searched for pearls (beads) in dirt for our morning devotional. It was really neat watching them become completely captivated by the pursuit of the treasure. It reminded me of the excitement we can show when seeking Jesus and the Kingdom of Heaven -- there truly is no better treasure. It was also a great reminder of all the dirt and 'stuff' that tries to hide His glory and beauty from us -- but He is always there... never far away -- sometimes we just have to brush away some dirt to find Him. I pray that we are all able to see past the things in this world to the one and only treasure... …
