Summer Day!

By Heidi Blokland

On this cold February day, students came to school wearing shorts and sandals, looking like they were ready for summer.

Once a month we have a Fab Friday, a day to dress up and have some fun together as a community. Today was called Summer Day and we all had a good time getting comfortable in our summer duds.

We gathered together for a singing chapel.

As we got comfortable on our towels we thought about how much sand there is in the world.

We learned that in one cup of sand there are 2 million grains of sand. In the Sahara desert there are 6 septillion grains of sand! (that is a 6 with 24 zeroes behind it)

In Psalm 139 it says, “God, your thoughts about me are priceless. No one can possibly add them all up.
If I could count them, **they would be more than the grains of sand.” How amazing to realize that God thinks about us more than there are grains of sand in the world. That thought is mind boggling!

As you start to think summer thoughts and dream of spending time on a sandy beach, remember that God is thinking about you right now! He thinks about you more than you can imagine or even understand.

Summer Day was a great way to build community and build faith.
