"Before you speak,
Think and be smart,
It's hard to fix
A wrinkled heart!"
Our school week ended last Friday with our first elementary chapel of the year. My heart overflowed with JOY at the sounds of our Jr. Cougars worshiping the Lord through singing!
We then went to God's Word together to reflect on how we can use our words and even our actions to "love one another" and "to encourage and build each other up."
"Therefore encourage one another and build one another up just as you are doing."
1 Thessalonians 5:11
Together we demonstrated on large, red, paper hearts how wrinkles in the paper hearts are like unkind and hurtful words and actions to our hearts. Just like the wrinkles and folds can be made a bit flatter and better, they are still in the paper, and it is forever changed. Words and actions that hurt our hearts or the hearts of others never totally go away. Even with time and healing, our hearts are forever changed. It takes courage to be encouraging in our words and actions, but with Jesus, and because of His love for us and His example to us, we can love, encourage, and build each other up.
Over this past week classes partnered together to sign the paper hearts to symbolize our commitment to having the courage to love each other well in our words and actions!
Our next elementary chapel is on Friday, 10/7/16, at 8:30 am in the Multipurpose Room in the High School. All parents are invited to attend!
After chapel, the PTF wants to invite you to a Meet and Greet. During this time of fellowship together, you will connect with other parents and hear more about the PTF (Parent Teacher Fellowship), the events planned for this year, and volunteer opportunities available to you.
