It is that time of year where we see all the back-to-school pictures and we don’t want to be any different, but maybe for different reasons. We want to CELEBRATE that the kids are going back to school IN PERSON! It is a reason to celebrate! It has been a year and a half since our kids have been at their school. Simeon is starting 6th grade, Esther is starting 2nd grade and Ephraim is starting 1st grade! Yes, they will be masked, yes, they have bio-security measures as they enter school (alcohol on the hands and temperature taking before entry), double the amount of hand sanitizer but they are together and we celebrate it! All teachers are vaccinated! This is a big step here in Ecuador! Celebrate with us!
We wanted to do something this year for our kids, praying verses over our kids each day as they go to school. Something we have seen in them is that the pandemic has created anxiety, fear and worry and we want to combat that.
Philippians 4:6-76 Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. 7 Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.
I AM KNOWN, LOVED, FORGIVEN, REDEEMED, CHOSEN, FREE, A CHILD OF GOD. …See what kind of love the Father has given us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are…1 John 3:1
Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” Matthew 19:26
