I’m thankful…

I’m thankful for good friends.

My students sometimes(often) ask why their answers have to be written in complete sentences, why the quiz has to be all essay questions, why aren’t there more multiple choice questions or why can’t they have more homework and fewer quizes and tests.

“Why does it have to be hard?”

I always answer the same way, “If it was easy, it wouldn’t be worth doing.”

I am thankful for good friends. I can’t really describe all the qualities of friendship, but you and I know what they are. We know the stuff that friendships are made of, time and tears, mutual prayer, interdependence, smiles and hugs, meaningful communication, being vulnerable and transparent. Lots of good stuff there, but most of it not easy. If it was easy, it wouldn’t be worth doing.

I’m thankful for good friends, near and far.

Praises – rain and cooler temperatures, continued work on the new building
Prayer requests – diligence in our work, staff unity, improved language skills, financial support, the Christmas program, and that God will continue to open the hearts of our students and our community.
