teacher appreciation week at graycen's school.

"but you are not like that, for you are a chosen people. you are a royal priests, a holy nation, God's very own possession. as a result, you can show others the goodness of God." - 1 peter 2:9 

a few weeks ago at graycen's school, it was teacher appreciation week. i got to take some pictures around the school one morning as everyone began their day. i see why these children and their parents appreciate their teachers. i am one of the thankful parents. graycen is one of the thankful students. God is doing some awesome things in the lives of these little people and God is using these teachers to guide them. one of the first times i sat down with graycen's teacher this past school year, she was reviewing many of the things they were doing in the classroom, many of them graycen was doing well at. but what really sent my heart stirring was when her teacher said to me, "but what is any of that compared to how much she loves the Lord?" i couldn't agree more. as a mom of a first time student, i rested in that sentence she spoke to me that day, and i continue to do so. not only is graycen a student of a classroom, but she is first and foremost a student of God, and that is the connection this school makes, that is the emphasis these teachers place in the hearts of their students. teachers- we DO appreciate you! and we thank you!
