TBS Nation,

It’s another Monday that I hope you are ready for….we don’t have to many of these left.  May marks the real countdown for the end of school. There are many things to accomplish in the next 23 days so hold on to your hats people.  This weekend was reminded again how wonderful it is to have a healthy body.  When you are not feeling good it is a struggle to get anything done.  I do sympathize with those who have chronic health issues and pray differently for those situations.

I had this thought this morning –  Is it sometimes extraordinary to just be ordinary?  I was reading in Ephesians and realized that God has given us His power and we have unlimited access to it.  I trust that you will find a way to use it and tap into this today.  We can help change lives as God gives us a part to play.  Children in our school are a gift from God and we should see them in this light!

Here is your day,

7:00am – Before School Care (Jeremy Shaeffer)
8:15am – Normal School Day
3:15pm – After School Care (Jeremy Shaeffer)


Reminders:

Tuesday:  Hot Lunch Menu – Hamburgers / Chips / Rasberry Jello / Brownie cookie bars


Ok – Deep breath…on to the week!

His Glory, Our Joy!

TBS Nation,

Good Morning and welcome to Friday.  I trust that you have a very good morning already underway.  It is a bit chilly so the summer dress may not be the best option for today as we are seeing much cooler temperatures.  Students will be outside today during some breaks so just giving moms a heads up!
We are down to a few weeks of school left!  I am always stunned how fast we go after Christmas break. It just seems like a blur!

Focus on the Family:

I read this article the other day and thought I would share.  Parenting is often hard and there are no step by step instructions that make it easy.  I was reminded last night that parenting is not just work, it is hard work and investing in lives helps a child’s steps toward believing faith.  We must show that God is supreme and that He is relevant in all situations.

Helping Children See God as Relevant to Their Lives

After you read this tell me what you think?

TBS Nation,

Soggy, wet, gloomy, rainy, and depressing are the descriptive words for the day.  I am glad that there are some sunny days in the weekend!  I hope that the weather will not put a damper on the joy we find in Christ.  Celebrate the risen Lord today by making choices that honor Him.  I find that choices are always in front of us and it is important to see them for what they really are.  I also find that Jesus gives us choices which demand a right or wrong decisions.  When one tries to live a separate (Holy) life, one must choose only right things!

TBS Nation,

Good Tuesday morning to you all and welcome to another day of school.  Tuesday is always a reality check after a long break because most of the “jet-lag” happens the second day in!  I know most of you all prepare for these things….I should really learn a lesson!  I am thankful for the days He gives us.  There are always bumps in the road and unexpected twists and turns but He really know what is best in our lives.  I am glad I am not in charge of these things!  I would make way to many mistakes.  (Teachers are only  allowed one mistake a year – did you know that?)

TBS Nation,

Is it possible to see some wet snow flakes today and then have a high of 68 on Sunday?  Only in WI!  If you are board just wait the weather will change.  I am thankful for the change as these things mark the beginning of a new spring.  I do have flowers up and growing and the lawn is beginning to show signs of rebirth as well.

TBS Nation,

Sometimes it is just interesting the way God brings things about in our lives.  All can identify in that we arrive in places we never thought possible, met individuals that we never knew existed, have had opportunities we never would have imagined and yet we still take many steps with selfish ambition.  Why do we think we can get away with this self-serving ideology?  I know the answer and it is because the sin nature is very powerful and we are not living in our glorified bodies yet!  I hope today that you can walk your course in the light of Jesus and pursue the path with His wisdom and guidance.  Be encouraged today!

TBS Nation,

Good morning TBS Nation and welcome to Wednesday / Awana Gran Prix Day!  Also, this morning Randy Martin is at the Surgery Center having a procedure on his shoulder.  He will be out of commission for the next few weeks as he recovers from this issue.  Randy has had shoulder problems for many years and is now finally having it corrected.  We are praying for you Randy and hope you recover quickly!

Today is Wednesday and Chapel Day.  Another chance to have our young people engaged in the preaching of God’s word.  My prayer is that the words of truth sink in and make a difference in their lives.

TBS Nation,

Finally a day with the sun starting to peek out of the horizon.  It is always comforting to me to see the bright light in the sky as it is a reminder of the bright glory of Jesus Christ and God the Father.  We do have special privilege as believers and we do need to share this with others around us.  I prayed and asked this morning that God wold give me special encounters to be able to share the gospel to those he puts in my path.  Most of that opportunity is with your children!  It is awesome to watch them grow like the flowers that are coming up out of the ground this week.  Each is special and each has its own beauty!

It is hot lunch day and I am thankful for the opportunity that brings for the kids.  Also I am looking forward to the Awana Gran Prix that will be this Wednesday.  I hope you can make it for the evening of food and fellowship!  The event will be held in the TBS gym and starting at 5:00pm there will be dinners ready from the concession stand.

    Here is the look at your day:

TBS Nation,

March has zipped by and we are now getting very close to our Spring Break / Easter Vacation.  Many schools have already taken the break and it may seem like we are late with our choice, however we usually follow Easter and surround time off to recognize the Resurrection!  I hope you are looking forward to the holiday as we turn our attention to the cross.

Rain and Muggy seem to be hanging around today.  I was hoping for a clear and sunny day to dry up some of this mud but I guess we will have to wait for that later this week. Thankfully we have a pretty normal week with no extra meetings or events other than the Awana Grand Prix.  If you are still willing to help in the kitchen I could use some help from 5:30pm to 7:00pm.

Here is your Monday:

7:00am – Before School Care (Jeremy Shaeffer)
8:15am – Normal School Day
Hot Lunch Menu for TUESDAY – Hot Ham and Cheese / Fruit / Dessert
3:15pm – Academic Help / Detention

TBS Nation,

Hello and welcome to Tuesday!  Today is World Down Syndrome Day and for the Spoor family this is particularly special.  I know many of you show your support to their family in many ways.  As a school it is important to bear up one another burdens.  Let’s pray for the Spoor family as they navigate the ongoing health needs of Lydia.  She is special and a gift from God and is in no way less of God’s image.  It is incredible to me that many living in this world see these children and adults as misfits or even less human.  Speaking from experience, my cousin Philip Bozzi,who lives in Paris France, knows God and speaks of God often which provides my aunt and uncle gospel opportunities each day!  This is to the praise of his glory!
