Today we had a staff inservice at a camp not too far from our school. The cabin we were assigned for a meeting was actually perfect for a day of social and emotional learning and mindfulness. Even just the break from our regular school meeting place just changed perspective:
One of our tasks was to plan and make lunch as a small group and eat together:
My group planned and made taco salad and smoothies:
Our last session of the day was a devotional from a former school parent. She spoke about 3 verses that we tend to learn as children but abandon as we get older and become more mature. However, she said that sometimes it's just those simple verses that can bring us back to what is truly important...to rest and be secure in Christ.
1. Be still and know that I am God. Psalm 46:10
You will keep in perfect peace
Be still. Cast our worries on Him. Trust in God and have peace. Sounds simple....and maybe it is.
