Ps.23: 1-3 God, my shepherd!
I don’t need a thing.
You have bedded me down in lush meadows,
you find me quiet pools to drink from.
True to your word,
you let me catch my breath
and send me in the right direction. MSG
As we head into this school year, we all have a lot on our plates. Meetings with donors, committee, leaders, kids, events to plan, trainings to lead, evals to complete, our own kids to get ready for school, etc. At times it feels like we don’t have an extra minute in the day but God wants us to know that there is rest and solace found in Him. He is the author of peace and just taking a couple minutes to start our day with Him, to take a deep breath, inhaling His peace and exhaling all the busy, He can rejuvenate us. When we pause, make space, we make room for God to show us what is the priority, what He truly wants us to pursue for the day.

Banners and Flags
Here is a website that is fairly inexpensive compared to some site for those feather flags. The more we order the cheaper the cost per unit so if a few areas want to go in together just let Shannon know and we can do one bulk order.
