Here’s something great!
As you know graduating high school seniors around the nation have experienced a major interruption in the traditional features of this right-of-passage.
Mrs. West, the Principal of Poplar Springs High School in Graceville, Florida (yup, the town is named Graceville) wanted to do something to off-set this sad circumstance. She was being interviewed on a national news media outlet about her solution.
Mrs. West decorated the drive leading to the school with very large photographs of each student. Each photo was in its own frame, one after the other on happy display along the drive to the school.
The news media interviewer asked Mrs. West how she came upon this solution. She said, “the answer is simple …. Prayer.”
The action itself and her testimony to our Loving God are a marvelous witness to us all. You might not have a circumstance which allows you to post photographs, but God gives each of us ample opportunity to witness, to confess our faith.
Picture yourself being that photograph of our Lord’s love. Each of us has experienced God’s blessings. There are really amazing blessings like the birth of a child or a grandchild. There are “everyday” blessings like good weather or a green grass lawn. Amazing blessings and daily blessings are all opportunities to be that photograph of our Lord’s love.
I’m reminded of Psalm 46:10 -
”Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations. I will be exalted in the earth!”
I’m also remembering Matthew 28:20 -
“And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
We want to take a moment here to recognize our 2019/2020 high school and college graduates.
Congratulations!! May God's blessings be with you as you travel the path ahead.
What a great God we serve !!!!
Dearest Lord Jesus – fill my heart, fill my days, with the Sonshine of Your love. Make the Joy You give be the Joy that fills me in every circumstance. In Your Holy Name. Amen.
