“God is not a belief to which you give your assent. God becomes a reality whom you know intimately, meet everyday, one whose strength becomes your strength, whose love, your love. Live this life of the presence of God long enough and when someone asks you, “Do you believe there is a God?” you may find yourself answering, “No, I do not believe there is a God. I know there is a God.”~Ernest Boyer, Jr.

And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart with all your soul and with all your might.~Deuteronomy 6:5

Nervous, Excited, Scared...Kindergarten

I'm ready to go was the announcement I heard from Caleb this morning as he got out of bed and proceeded to lay down on the couch.

The big day has finally arrived and I can hardly believe it after so much talk and planning here it is Kindergarten. Nervous, excited, scared, worried and a little sad were all the emotions I was feeling this morning as I packed my BIG boy's lunch and helped him get ready for school.

If he was nervious he never showed it...he sat right down and kept to himself lost in the crowd of children. As I watched him in morning assembly I got teary eyed but refused to cry because no one else was crying and did not want to be the one responsible for making all the moms cry!

After the assembly he lined up with his class and marched off lunch box in hand...my baby in Kindergarten!
