One Thousand Gifts (continued)

"I am setting before you today a blessing..." 
(Deuteronomy 11:26-27)

"That was a beautiful day", my husband said to me as we were driving home from parent/teacher conferences last week.  On that day, we had a daughter and a son on the winning school volleyball teams.  We had the privilege of meeting up with former high school teachers and current high school teachers (our niece, sister-in-law, friends, etc.).  We witnessed positive sportsmanship.  We had positive feedback from teachers regarding our children.  It was a beautiful day.  It made us so thankful for the Christian staff whom we have entrusted to teach our children.  It made us feel very blessed to be part of such a wonderful Christian community both at the elementary level and secondary level (more so, next year)!
