Young Boy goes to a little Christian school where they have Preschool - 8th grade. It's the same school that my sister & I went to, my dad went to and my grandparents went to. Hmm, that might sound a little backward to some...but to me it's history, it's life in a small town. It's family and community.
Yesterday, they had an "around the pole" morning. Any kids that would like to are invited to come in a few minutes early, stand around the flagpole outside and have a morning devotion. It was too cold to be outside yesterday, so the kids gathered in the gym.
It dawned on me as I was listening. What a great thing for all of these kids to know that it's OKAY to pray. I've never been a 'preachy' kind of soul, but I do believe that it's a good foundation and I KNOW that it's something I still carry with me every day. What a blessing this church and school has been to my family.
