As summer’s end approaches and Office Max and Walmart stores across the state staff up for the impending school shopping rush, I think it is only appropriate that we head into the school year by shedding some much needed light on Angela Barnett, Paulding County’s 2016 Teacher of the Year.
Back to School Prayer
by Courtney DeFoe
Dear Lord, use my eyes to SEE new friends.
Open my ears to HEAR my teacher.
Open my mind to LEARN new things.
Let my heart REMEMBER you are near when I'm afraid.
Help me to LOVE other like you do.
I want to shine your LIGHT so bright in my school.
Whether they are starting 1st grade or the 1st year in college, our children face many things this school year - new teachers, new friends, new schools, new subjects, new joys and new hardships. It is can be a joyous and stressful time for them, and we will be praying for all of our children as they start back this month!
