TBS Nation,

Good morning and welcome to Wednesday.  We are already halfway thought the week.  It has been a rainy and wet two days but I am so glad that there was a break for all of us the past two days.  I want to remind you that Souped Up tickets are in your hands.  We are looking to have a great turnout and would like to know a count soon.  Let me know on Monday, February 26 the approximate sales so that we can make sure we are over prepared for the day.  Plans are already in motion for the event and it seems to be coming together well!  If you are able to TBS is still in need of some desserts for the day if you are able. There is a sign-up for that if you are interested in helping in that way!
Psalm 40:9-10   “I have told the glad news of deliverance in the great congregation; behold, I have not restrained my lips, as you know, O Lord.  I have not hidden your deliverance within my heart; I have spoken of your faithfulness and your salvation; I have not concealed your steadfast love and your faithfulness from the great congregation.”
David seems to be bold about his Lord, I think we should do the same.  We have a good God to show people.  We have a great salvation that is ours to celebrate.  We should not hide these things in our hearts, but rather tell of the steadfast faithfulness of the LORD!

TBS Nation,

Don’t forget anything Levi.  “I got it mom!”

Image result for packing suitcase
Once again my family will provide me with a great example for today.  Levi was so excited to go to snow camp and spent much of Wednesday evening packing for the two day adventure.  In the furry of flinging unnecessaries into the duffel bag he seemed to miss the most obvious adornment.  Amber found his winter coat this morning hanging the back hall exactly where it should be if he were home…. but he’s not at home – ugh!  If you were going to go sledding and have hours of snow activities, wouldn’t you bring this?  I stopped to ask myself why he seemed to forget the most important piece.  I think as believers we do the same thing.  We are so worried or busy or hurt or excited that we forget that we have a heavenly Father who is the most important piece of our day – but somehow we miss bringing him along.  Somehow we miss our daily feeding in his word.  Somehow we miss the most obvious.  Will Levi survive?  I’m sure in a weird Jr. Higher way he will however it could have been better!  Slow down today and don’t miss the thing that counts.
Only one life will soon be past
Only what’s done for Christ will last

Jr/Sr High Snow Camp – Leave After School / Arrive Saturday @ 4:30pm


Students in the Jr. and Sr High have a unique opportunity to travel to Northland Camp and Conference Center to experience and event called Snow Camp. This was long a tradition for the school and many young people enjoyed the experience.  There is fun in the snow, no doubt, but along with the fun there is a great emphasis in teaching the Word of God.  The time that kids get away from their parents and spend time with friends can give a moment to their hearts to listen to the preaching and teaching of Jesus.  I heard from my own daughters mouth, “what am I going to do without moms phone for three days?”  The answer – enjoy relationships, listen to God’s whisper, spend a few days away from the nags (mom and dad), have some fun!   In these days of constant connectivity it is important to disconnect from the world matrix and give some quality time to the one who created us!  My prayer is for those students to really listen to God this weekend as well as have a great time together.
Hope you are listening to God as well.  I trust that you are in tune enough to hear his whisper!  If not I would love to pray for you today so that you can receive the blessing of hearing God speak!  It’s the best place in the world to be….

TBS Nation,

Happy Valentines Day!  I hope you husbands treat your wives with love and care today. Also it is a day to remember our love for others.  I enjoy Valentines Day because of the focus it puts on love, however I don’t believe Hallmark or any other business knows what true love really is.


I Cor 13:4-13

“Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude.  It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, endures all things. Love never ends.  As for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away.  For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when the perfect comes the partial will pass away. When I was a child , I spoke like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child.  When I became a man, I gave up childish ways.  For now we see in a mirror dimly but then face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully even as I have been fully known.  So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three but the greatest of these is love.”


There is no better way to encourage you today but to recognize God’s prescription for the day!  Sorry Hallmark you don’t have it all right!

Roses and candy, hearts and bears are all small in comparison of Jesus LOVING ME enough that He would die for me.
Remember – Jr/Sr High will not have classes on Friday.  Elementary has a full day

TBS Nation,

Well this week we will see a brief warm up and it is right on for being mid February!  This will be a nice change from the cold stretch we have had over the past couple of weeks.  I hope your weekend was good and you were able to feed on God’s word!  “Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God and any one who loves is born of God and knows God.  Today I want to challenge all of us to show this overwhelming love to each other because of our God.  He is great and He is mighty to be praised.  It showed our creator honor and glory when we keep each other in high esteem, regardless the circumstances!

TBS Nation,

Good morning TBS Nation and welcome to Thursday.  The sun is peaking through the clouds this morning and I hope we see sunshine again for the day!  I am  thankful for a God who knows and sees this morning.  Even when there are frustrations and unknowns He is faithful to put His hand on us and walk us through.  I hope you find encouragement in your day!
There will be a Parent Bridge meeting tonight.  I do not have child care available so keep that in mind.  Busy schedules with basketball seems to keep my resources down.  The meeting will begin at 6:30pm and end at 7:30.  I hope to encourage all of you and get some feedback on our year.  Also we will spend some time in prayer for each other as there are still needs among us!

TBS Nation,

Another extremely cold day out today but I do see the sun peaking up a bit earlier these days.  It makes the cold temperatures seem not so bad even though they are!  Anyway it is a Tuesday and we have a normal day scheduled.  There will be hot lunch available again today and it is chicken pot pie with salad!  Sounds good on this winter day right?
I was doing some reading yesterday for a sermon preparation and read the words from Ephesians 5, “Wives submit to your own husbands….Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her….”  I wish that this was an easy thing to do.  Further more I wish that all mankind would do this well.  I can’t imagine what our world would be like if there was harmony in each home in the sight of God.  Peace, joy, stability, harmony with others and many other traits would be forced to the surface.  Instead we have gossip, lying, hate, disrespect, anger and a host of other ungodly traits found just below the surface of our relationships.  Frustrating for sure.  Christ gives us the key to unlock this impossible task.  Consider what He did for the church (you and me).  Love like that, give grace and mercy like He did, reach out to those in need and do it with pure motive and so on.  Christ’s love for the church sets the bar and it is impossible but that does not mean we should not attempt to reach it.  Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus…
Hope that encourages you today!

TBS Nation,

No snow again last night or this morning…..I can hardly believe this activity this winter.  I don’t think I have ever lived through a winter like this.  Anybody else?
Today marks a tax day of sorts.  If you own a home it is the final day you can pay your property taxes without penalty in FDL.  I will go over to the FDL county building and write a check for more than I want to, so that our County can use it for her needs.  Education is a big part of where my money goes and I know most of you have opinions about that.  Instead of thinking about the use or misuse of money, I choose to think about the incredible opportunity that I have to own my home.  It is a place where I can dictate what comes in and what goes out.  I am the one who can choose what to watch and what to listen to.  I am the one responsible and it is God’s gift to me.  The home is supposed to be a soft and quiet place.  Laughter and discipline are found here as well.  This is a place where repairs are made to relationships and where wisdom is passed to the next generation.  I wonder if I have labored in vain?  Did and Does the Lord build my house?  I trust that God is in the infrastructure and in the heart of it all. This is why we keep on ….He is faithful no matter what!
Hope you enjoy your Wednesday!

TBS Nation,

Good morning and welcome to Wednesday. I hope you all had a good night to rest and enjoy an evening at home. Most likely it was busy and filled with things to do ….I get it – I’m in the same boat! I had to run to Appleton yesterday to drop off my computer for a week. I will have access to email through my phone only. It is not as easy to use as the laptop…sorry about this.

Reminders:
Elementary Field Trip Tomorrow – Barlow Planetarium
Don’t forget to bring car seats for those still needing them!

TBS Nation,

No Delays Today…..Be careful on your way in to school!


Well, back to the white stuff hey?  Most of you are already done shoveling and getting the snow off the cars and ready for the day.  I still can’t believe how little snow we have.  I hope that does not come to curse us the second half of the winter…fingers crossed!
Thank you to those who attended the memorial service for Kim.  Dale and the family was encouraged and there were many who made an effort to come and remember Kim.  Ultimately, God was glorified in the service and in Kim’s life.  So we praise him for a life well lived!  We who are believers will see Jesus and Kim again – no doubt!
I hope your Monday goes well!  Stay safe and we will see you soon!
