the sweetest part...

"Be kind and compassionate to one another..." Ephesians 4:32

Book Fair... it's over, and i'm not crying.  Honestly though, it was a good and hectic week, well worth the extra work in many ways. The change of pace was fun, volunteers were wonderful and students' joy overflowed.  As i reflect over the week, one incident soars above all others.

Our Book Fair policy is all students receive a book, meaning some "win" a book on Friday.  We don't second guess the winners submitted by teachers, just honor.  Friday, by chance, i got to witness the passing on an act of kindness by an unlikely candidate.  One of our winners slipped a dollar from his pocket in our donation box to help students. A touching act of kindness multiplied.
Many we never question a chance to help another, but trust our heart and our Father. In helping another, we even help ourselves. My heart grew Friday with this sweet reminder, and i pray it never stops.

we are loved and chosen by God,
may we live like we believe it,
