Searching for Pearls

Matthew 13:44-45

44 “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... Jesus. Thank you God for loving us. Amen.
A couple pics!
Also, Lois came in last Thursday and brought her rock collection including some fossils. Very interesting and the kids loved it! Thank you! --A couple exploration time pics too. (Just an fyi and I apologize, but I did miss pics of a couple cool projects the week before -- sorry about that but I trust you all saw the end results!) Godspeed.

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…
