Costumes are always so fun. This year, Matt was a stick figure and Emz was an 80's girl. Doesn't she look like Punky Brewster?
I wonder if Sandy looked like that back in the day.
They also got to have some fun carving pumpkins.
This will make a perfect bat sign in the sky.
Emery went with the monogrammed look - EHL.

Character Counts

Emery has started her 5th grade year off very well. We were all a little hesitant, wondering how she would adjust to her new school. But so far, things have gone fabulously.
She has made good friends. She has done great academically. And even more impressive, she won the Joe Henderson Elementary Character Counts award for the first month of the year for her class.
She won a free book with it too. Great job Emery! We're very proud of you!

Isaiah 53:4-6

Praise God for Christ's substitutionary work on the cross for us. Isn't it amazing that anyone would suffer for us let alone the perfect Son of God?

Isaiah 53:4-6

Surely our griefs He Himself bore, And our sorrows He carried; Yet we ourselves esteemed Him stricken, Smitten of God, and afflicted. But He was pierced through for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; The chastening for our well-being fell upon Him, And by His scourging we are healed. All of us like sheep have gone astray, Each of us has turned to his own way; But the Lord has caused the iniquity of us all To fall on Him.

1 Corinthians 10:13

This is a favorite verse of many. What a promise of God for us who still sin!
1 Corinthians 10:13
13 No temptation has overtaken you but such as is common to man; and God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will provide the way of escape also, so that you will be able to endure it.
