Tonight I decided to count my blessings instead of think about why I am so tired……

Sweet students who met Evan a few weeks ago when he volunteered in my room for a few days and  asked if they could send messages to him in the hospital!  Evan loved looking at all the pictures!

Listening to Olivia talk about writing a Bible verse on the dry erase board of her locker today at school and how she wants to have a verse on her locker every week…..and carry her Bible to school every day…..

friday september90055_resize This is her passage for this week.

James 1:22-25

Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like a man who looks at his face in a mirror and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like. But the man who looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues to do this, not forgetting what he has heard, but doing it-he will be blessed in what he does.

Thank you, Richie, for preaching on this last night at youth group! 

It transformed her!

You should buy one if you can…it really works!
