See You at the Pole 2007

All 4 of us enjoyed See You at the Pole yesterday at Gracie's school. It was a small gathering but doesn't it say, "Where one or two are gathered, there I am also." There were more than 1 or 2, probably about 20. One of the ladies I work with on PTA, she & I were talking through email yesterday, bouncing around ideas about how to spread the word better next year. SYATP is supposed to be student led which is a little more difficult in an elementary school because of their young ages. Gracie had mentioned a "what if" scenario of every student coming and there wouldn't be room, etc. I'd say it's a problem worth having! I know a few of the families who were with us went across the street afterwards to the middle school ready to have prayer time with their older children. Apparently it had been announced on the intercom at the middle school that it would be taking place, so I'm sure more of those students knew about it. I was encouraged to see some of our teachers in our little group and our librarian told me she wished she could be out there with us but she had duty that morning.

I am thankful for the prayer time we shared yesterday. I'm thankful for those at Gracie's school who believe in Christ as God's son and are bold in their belief-and I know there are many more of them than just those who were able to come to SYATP. I'm thankful that God blesses us daily.

Oh! I just saw that you are "interested" in Abilene Christian University... I actually grew up in the Church of Christ and had a lot of friends that attended.
