Parent Connection May 8th

The End Is Within Sight?
For several weeks now, my students have been reminding me each week how many days are left in the school year. I don’t know if they are just counting down the days, or if they are trying to panic me as we have a few things to go through before the end comes. As a teacher, you don’t want to finish your course of study too early, nor do you want to run out of time before you get all of those important concepts covered.
          For our devotion this morning Pastor Ewings used Psalm 90 as his text. As he read, I was struck by one of the phrases the Psalmist used, “Teach us to number our days aright, that we may gain a heart of wisdom.” Psalm 90:12.
          This should be our prayer as we anticipate anything we must wait for patiently. Whether it is the last day of the school year, or some special trip, or our next birthday, or the Day of the Lord’s Return; we ask God to teach us to include the Lord in our planning and anticipation. Our goal is a ‘heart of wisdom’, a heart which trusts fully in its God and looks forward to heaven with him.
