Tornado watch at Mission First

Due to a thunderstorm and strong winds Wednesday the tornado sirens went off.... While Mom, Laura, and I were volunteering at Mission First. Some took it well. Others assumed that we were all about to die. And the majority complained...That they didn't get their SNACK! Needless to say it was a long 30 minutes in the hallway...

Three lessons here.

1. Don't be at Mission First when you have to take cover from a tornado
2. You can never have too much patience
3. The #1 most important thing to K-6 graders is.... Snack Time!

Practicing Patience,
Grace

Romans 8:31-39

31 So what should we say about this? If God is for us, no one can defeat us. 32 He did not spare his own Son but gave him for us all. So with Jesus, God will surely give us all things.33 Who can accuse the people God has chosen? No one, because God is the One who makes them right. 34 Who can say God's people are guilty? No one, because Christ Jesus died, but he was also raised from the dead, and now he is on God's right side, appealing to God for us. 35 Can anything separate us from the love Christ has for us? Can troubles or problems or sufferings or hunger or nakedness or danger or violent death? 36 As it is written in the Scriptures:
    "For you we are in danger of death all the time.
       People think we are worth no more than sheep to be killed." — Psalm 44:22

 37 But in all these things we are completely victorious through God who showed his love for us. 38 Yes, I am sure that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor ruling spirits, nothing now, nothing in the future, no powers,39 nothing above us, nothing below us, nor anything else in the whole world will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
(New Century Version)

Nothing! Not your past, present, or future. Not even life or death! No angels or demons. NO POWER! NOTHING can separate us from the love of Christ! There is absolutely no way to be separated from His love. It is that Strong!

In love with Him,
Grace

Round 1 Complete!!!

Yep that is correct round 1 of shots bites the dust. Two down two to go!! I will have to go back next month to get my yellow fever shot because they went bad when they lost power at the medical mall and I will get another Hep A shot in 6 months. My arm is sore and a little puffy but the shots themselves didn't really hurt. Here's a quick picture...

Peter Pan is Over... and a cool verse!

The past two Mondays I have been playing a Lost Boy in Peter Pan!! It has been so much fun! My homeschool group (CHEC) has really put on  great show! I have made some great new friends and had fun with old friends! And it is over.... SO sad! But I must say we did it with good form ;) ! (The picture is of all the lost boys) I can not wait until next year!


Here is a verse that Has really been on my heart recently...

Proverbs 4:11-12
11 I am guiding you in the way of wisdom,
       and I am leading you on the right path.
 12 Nothing will hold you back;
       you will not be overwhelmed.
In all the craziness of high school and all that comes with it God with walk you through it all!

Love,
Grace
