James and Friend

James is very social and loves time with his friends. Here is one of his friends and him having fun at a recent soccer game Mikayla and Kirsten were playing in.

Have Patience

Ben's class recently presented a very fun program at the elementary chapel on patience.
The main verse was Proverbs 19:11
A man's wisdom gives him patience; it is to his glory to overlook an offense.


Another poster that came through on Facebook is this.

I like the saying. It is what God wants us to do; He is teaching me more and more to stop trying to be in control and in charge and just let Him be that. There is a lot of courage in giving up control and allowing God to lead...but it is so much better that way. He is soverign and all things work out for our good and His glory.

Like He says in Psalm 37: 6 - 8
6 He will bring forth your righteousness as the light, and your justice as the noonday.

7 Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him; fret not yourself over the one who prospers in his way, over the man who carries out evil devices!

8 Refrain from anger, and forsake wrath! Fret not yourself; it tends only to evil.

Positives of life

HATE has four letters
but so does LOVE

ENEMIES has seven letters
but so does FRIENDS

LYING has five letters
but so does TRUTH

HURT has four letters
but so does HEAL

Transform the negative into a positive
It is our perception that makes the difference in the way we feel.

This saying came across my facebook page recently. It just says very succinctly what God has been teaching me, too. Hope you find encouragement in this saying to look for the graces and positives of life.
