Getting Ready For Christmas!

Today marked a new step in BCS history! The kids sang completely on their own... and I took pictures! They made quite the choir and sang beautifully. Singing with them all these years, I always looked forward to just being able to listen and let them lead... and lead they did! They kept singing songs and picking out more... His light radiated from their voices and smiles and kindness.

Every day has its challenges and mistakes, but His love sure is steady. I’m very thankful for Wookeys giving us this opportunity to spend time with their residents - and the kindness they show us.

Our bible verse this week is John 10:10. The theif’s purpose is to steal, kill, and destroy. My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life.

It’s an awesome realization to know the one who created us and watches over us is a God of love... and His desire is to bless us with and through His love.

Thanks God!

Looking forward to the program Thursday night. We will have goodies in the entry and the kids will be playing their piano pieces before too. The program will start at 6!

I will not be sending school books home over Christmas break - but I am going to send a chapter book home with each child to read over Christmas break. I would love it if they read these books with their parents!

I pray everyone has a safe and very blessed Christmas - and His peace, which transcends all human understanding, fills each of our hearts and minds. Amen.

And some pics from today! Hopefully have some from the program too after Thursday!

Freedom to Choose.

It’s crazy, but while we live in a ‘free’ country - many of us live lives that speak otherwise. We are bound by expectations and man-made plans. We do what we do mostly because that is what we are told or expected to do... and then something like this happens where we are given the freedom of time... and choices... a blessing most of us are not sure what to do with. 
I can’t help but spend time right now reveling in the truth that we are created in God’s image... It doesn’t take much exploring of God’s creation to see that we have a very creative God. I truly believe somewhere within each one of us, whether it be building, sculpting, photography, painting, planting, music, crafts, writing, etc - we have a desire to create and explore, a sometimes very buried or hidden desire - but a desire... a yearning in our soul. 
I’m so incredibly thankful for a break from the chaos. An opportunity to slow down and connect with God. I pray with all my heart - as a culture - we are able to let go of …

Philippians 3:1-11... Into the Unknown! :).. Sing it out!

I just wanted to elaborate on the beautiful scripture we read this morning. Philippians 3:1-11
Paul talks about how there is no human effort that can bring us to God, but that it is a gift given to us because of what Christ Jesus has done for us. And that although Paul, when he was Saul, walked a near blameless life as far as the written law, Paul now counts it as nothing because of what Christ has done - the infinite value in His love for us. And then the clincher: “For God’s way of making us right with himself depends on faith.” -Philippians 3:9. 
And this is where the Holy Spirit... the miracle of the Holy Spirit within each one of us comes to life. Faith being an intangible, untouchable, mystical element is not for us to hold onto or rationalize - the Holy Spirit acts as a bridge for our souls to connect with the mystical... and venture  “into the unknown!” :) yes, I even sang it this morning. 
The Holy Spirit, Jesus’ presence multiplied infinitely because of His death on the cross …
