This weekend my family joined a co-op hybrid school (part school, part homeschool) at the ribbon cutting ceremony for the new campus. The event was simple and awesome. Why? Because they opened in thanksgiving, reminded everyone that the core mission of the school is to build the Kingdom of God, and we prayed over the people and facilities for God's grace to reign down on them.
I worked as the "official" photographer. I hope I did well enough that they ask me back! I told my wife that I felt great that I could be a part of the communinty by working. She just smiled at me and whispered, "I know" as she smiled rubbed by head. That wife of mine is a keeper. (She's at teacher orientation today!)
One of my favorite moments was watching the lonely playground quickly fill with over a dozen children. Here I caught just a second of the fun, but you can clearly see my son loving the fellowship of new and old friends. It is a moment of joy I want to hold on to for a long time in my heart.
