The quote of the day from the Circle of Friends adult Sunday School class is, “No matter what it is, you have to put it in God’s hands.” Said by a student. Our students always inspire and encourage us as we watch them grow, and they help us grow. I spent the afternoon writing Christmas thank you notes, and I’m not finished yet. Many of them were for money given to Pal’s Place to honor Bob and me. Pal’s Place is one of our favorite groups because it gives parents a little time off while their teens and friends have a good time. There’s always pizza or turkey or something special for the season, and the students love to play in the gym and do other activities. It’s more than activity, though; it is planned to be socialization by intention. A great big thank you to the staff and helpers.
