It seems it was just yesterday that I located my dusty flip flops at the back of my closet and slipped them on my pale feet to officially begin summer. Now it is late August and I have gone through 2 pairs of grocery store sunglasses and need a jacket when the temperature dips below 80. Just as the environment around us changes, so do the glorious people who inhabit it. As the first week of school nears, changes will continue to take place with the weather and our incoming students. New preschool students are mastering their potty training (hopefully). Students and teachers are slowly reducing their bedtimes. Fresh school supplies fill crammed closets awaiting their transportation to a new classroom. Last minute trips to the pool and weekend camping adventures are planned before summer is officially over. Most changes in the season include sadness of what is ending, yet joyful anticipation of what is to come. Our prayer is that Crosshill students (and parents) are looking forward to the upcoming transition from summer break back to school.
I can think of one “changing of the seasons” that we all agree is one-sided. A past season that we do not want to experience again. When we surrender our lives to Jesus Christ, and experience for the first time His undeserved grace, there is no desire to turn back. The new life we experience as we walk with God holds no regrets. Summer is a wonderful time to share the joy of our faith with our children in God’s creation. Our prayer is that this joy continues, and students’ faith grows, as they walk into their classrooms in new adventures of learning.
