Small Town Living

The nice part about living in a small town: When you don't know what you're doing, someone else always does.

Part II of Pinching Myself.......

The sores are getting bigger, from pinching myself that is! My cup runneth over! Yesterday was another answered prayer. My nephew, that I mentioned last week, that was saved after church and will be baptized this Sunday.....well, his Dad joined our church yesterday and will be baptized with him!! Big pinch!!

I'm at a loss for words!

Not really:)

But if my tears were words, they will fill a book!

I thought my Mom was going to physically pass out from the Holy Spirit being so real to her. I just held on. With her heart being so weak, I wasn't sure if she could stand much more. Oh, but, God knows her condition and He knows what she needs. He will take care of her. Pinch!

As I dropped the kids off for the first day of school this morning, I saw all the faces of the kids. Some excited, some just blank, some talking with friends, some alone, some scared, some holding hands with their parents and some lost. I pray that all the students will have a safe and successful year. I pray for the teachers, counselors, support personnel, and administration as they try and lead our school and teach our children. I pray for the bus drivers as they carry them safely to and from school. I pray for the coaches, as they try and teach our children what being part of a team is and the discipline that goes with it. I pray for the players that they will have no injuries and a winning year, all the while showing good sportsmanship.

Let's join hands and lifting them up to God. That somehow, some way, this little country school can make a difference in some one's life!

AMEN!! Your prayer is what has been on my heart. For the last 3 weeks I have encourged my Sunday School class to pray about school starting, teachers...and although I would never express this to them it is just really sad that we can't think of our schools being a safe haven anymore. I thank God for our small town school and so many Godly teachers!
