August Vacation

It’s that quiet time of year for those of us still at Saint Dominic Academy. As such, for the month of August, this blog will be quiet too. I am taking some vacation time myself, to rest, relax, enjoy my soon-to-be eight year old, and to prepare to return refreshed to lead Saint Dominic Academy for another year. If you are missing my thoughts on anything and everything- remember all the old blogs are still online- go back and re-read any favorites you have! 

I will be back to blog with a fresh new perspective, interesting topics and insights pertaining to the women of SDA in September . Until then, I leave each of you with this August prayer.

May you walk with God
This summer In whatever you do
Wherever you go

Walking with God means…
Walking with honesty And with courage,
Walking with love And respect
And concern for the feelings of others

May you talk to God
This summer And every day and
In every situation

Talking with God means…
Praying words of praise For the beauty of creation
Saying prayers of thanks For friends and good times,
Asking God’s help In all your decisions
Expressing sorrow When you have failed

May you talk with God
Every day Amen

Our Prayers Go Out…

I remember Columbine…I remember Virginia Tech…I remember Sandy Hook. I remember the others, too numerous to name. My heart is heavy, as is the heart of every parent, every educator and everyone who has been too close to a tragic incident such as the one that occurred last Wednesday in Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.

Today, I ask for your prayers as Saint Dominic Academy continues to pray for those in Florida who are mourning the loss of 17 young lives due to senseless violence.  Together, let us as for God’s grace and turn our heavy hearts to His wisdom for comfort.

And so we pray for our children and for all children…

 

May the light of God surround you…

May the love of God enfold you…

May the power of God protect you…

May God place His hands upon you…

May the presence of God watch over you…

Wherever you are, God is.

Amen
