Today’s message is from our Granite Creek preschool teacher and cook, Mrs. Lori:
Throughout the last couple of weeks, I’ve had a few of the same Bible verses repeating themselves in my head. Verses such as:
“God did not give us a spirit of fear, but of power, love, and a sound mind” 2 Timothy 1:7
“Do not be anxious about anything, but through prayer and petition present your requests to God” Philippians 4:6-7
“Peace I give to you, my peace I leave with you, I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid” John 14:27
A piece of wisdom that has touched me the most came from my 6-year-old daughter. When I asked her what she thought about everything that’s going on and how she was feeling her response was short and ended like this, “but I know God is with me, so everything is gonna be ok.” I pray that I can have faith like that. I thank God for my kids who help me see the bright side to all of this chaos, teach me to cherish the little moments in life, and challenge me to have childlike faith.
Speaking of challenges, I’ve been asked to give everyone a “challenge” of some sort. I was thinking, with all the extra time we are now spending on devices (whether working from home, doing school on Google classroom, or trying to keep in touch with friends/family) we need to also find creative ways to learn and entertain ourselves without those devices! Here are some suggestions from my own family: go on a nature scavenger hunt, build an obstacle course (inside the house or outside!), have paint night at home, do Pinterest science experiments (like making slime, a volcano, fireworks in a jar), or go crazy with sidewalk chalk on your driveway. Whatever you do, have fun and keep learning while staying safe and healthy! We miss our Baymonte family!
Love, Mrs. Lori
