Testifying with Love.




John 5:31-47 -- Today we read about John the Baptist being a witness to Jesus and one other witness! :)

Why is Jesus saying His miracles and teachings are witnesses to directly connect Him to Our Father in heaven (John 5:36)?  Because God is love! 1 John 4:8. All of Jesus' miracles and teachings come back to ONE common principle -- LOVE! --- unconditional, all-encompassing love! He heals the broken, weak, sick, sinful. God could've sent a force that was so big and so great it would have scared us all to pieces and forced us into fearful submission to obedience... But that is not God. He literally is love. He's not asking for submission out of fear -- He's calling us to have a relationship with Him out of love. It's so awesome and amazing to me that the creator of the universe is love. The all-powerful Lord is love.

It is also puts into perspective the power of love. The word love gets tossed around alot which may dim the understanding of it's power -- but it says in John -- love heals, forgives, and changes lives. Jesus was sent to us out of love and for love and to love. It's incredible how simple it really is.

"When we get to heaven, we will laugh when we see, just how hard we tried to make it and how easy it should be." -- David Crowder, Praise the Lord, lyrics.

Dear God, Don't let our focus shift from you. Keep us steadfast in your love -- your constant, simple, perfect love. You are so beautiful. Thank-you! Amen.

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…
