Happy New Year! Welcome Back :). And Revised Ice Skating Plans.

I pray that everyone is having a good start to 2019. Please remember as we start this year, Jesus also offers us a clean slate, a fresh start. - In Luke 5:20, Jesus says - "Your sins are forgiven."  We are saved by grace through faith, Ephesians 2:8.

Our bible verse this last week was John 3:36 -- And anyone who believes in God's son has eternal life. -- Our focus was the word 'believe'. When we believe in something, it causes an action. If I was driving along and my car slid off the road and I believed help was just a 100 feet away -- if I really believed that -- I would get out of my car and walk to help. If we believe in Jesus - His love, forgiveness, His saving power... we want to draw near to Him. It causes us to stop and call on Him and rest in Him. When we slide off the road in life, or get sidetracked -- Jesus isn't even 100ft away -- He's simply waiting with arms outstretched, to love His child. I pray, in 2019, we rest in His love - knowing we are forgiven. That we are saved by grace, not by deeds. He loves us while we are still sinners. And nothing in all creation can separate us from this love that is in Christ Jesus. (Romans 8:38). In His name we pray. Amen.

And Ice Skating Details : 
Wallace has a little ice skating rink by the park. And our pond has a nice sheet of ice, although the last blizzard made it a little tricky on our pond - so will have to assess that option. Anyway - I would like to see if skating closer to Bradley could work out, but everyone would need their own skates. Between a few of our families we have a couple extra pairs or sometimes you can find them used online or at a thrift store. We can keep the dates the same or even try and skate every Tuesday for as long as we can -- but since we will be ice skating outside, if the weather gets frigid, we would have to test the flexibility of trying a different day or skipping a week... and we would still need a few adults to help. Please contact me (or Bobby) or start a conversation by commenting to the post if you have any thoughts or concerns or need help finding skates!

Blessings.

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…

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…
