Day One: Sugar Cereal & Devotion

Today is a day.  It is the first of many or a continuation for some of social distancing for the betterment of our entire community at large.  Schools are closed.  Corporate worship isn’t a thing.  Mid-week dinner church and small groups … not a thing.  Restaurant are closing.  Extra-curricular everything is cancelled.  I just learned that yoga studios are asked to close, too.  😦

Yep.  Today is a day!  Many of us now have our kiddos at home and we are finding ourselves (quite suddenly) in the role of homeschool lead teacher of a multi-grade classroom.

I am here to say:  YOU GOT THIS because WE GOT THIS.  🙂

Breathe and Scream as you need ! (not kidding) … and remember … you are not alone.  God is with us all – as parents and as children of God, ourselves.

Jesus is walking right next to me and you and our loved ones … and all in our communities. He never ever leaves our side.

Today IS a day!  So, here’s a super simple prayer to guide you through it.  Teach kiddos the response.  Use it today (OR any day that you might all be struggling a little … just.getting.along)

One:  Send your light and your truth.

All: Lead us, Jesus.

One: Help us to pray instead of fight.

All: Lead us, Jesus.

One: Make our home your home.

All: Lead us, Jesus.  Amen.

On our end?  We started our morning with a short devotion that closed in that prayer above.  Now before you think (well, yeah, you’re a PASTOR and your kids HAVE to do this  ….) Let me detail that a little for you.  We lit a candle, read the devotion and then?  had a fantastic bowl of 100% sugar cereal (because that was all that was left at Wal-Mart last night) and milk.  So, I will take the points for protein and not setting the little book aflame.  Those counts as wins, yes?

Peace be upon you and the sugar cereal, too,

Pastor M.
