And then the world seems to fall apart bit by bit. When will it end. Standing firm but the winds feel like they are hurricane force. Stand Strong. Hold Tight. Breathe.

See You At the Pole

It's been a long time since I've blogged. Just haven't been able to make myself with everything that's going on, but had to take the time today.

Today is "See You at the Pole" day. This is a day when students gather around the flag pole at their schools for a time of prayer and/or worship to God. It is student led. It's held before classes began.

I knew the boys planned on going. I'd bought them t-shirts even. Just wasn't sure if they'd get up and get moving. It started at 7:00 a.m. My precious children got themselves up, dressed and out by 6:20. The only way I know this is because Rus sent me a message at 6:23 asking me to make sure I grabbed his wallet for him.

When I texted at 7:45 and asked if their were many people there, J texted back "yeah". I don't know how many I only know that my boys were there without shame and were not alone. I can't wait to find out more tonight, but right now I'm just proud.

"Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace." Ephesians 6:14-16
