This weekend Caronport High School celebrated the graduation of our grade 12 students. It was a great weekend indeed, as was the Briercrest College and Seminary graduation several weeks ago. Thanks Deb Ike, CHS teachers, Events team, and all who made this a wonderful weekend for students, family and friends. I noticed how quiet the campus became after the College and Seminary commencement services – but I expect that it will grow even quieter now that the High School is in summer recess. Now, I know that many of us have all kinds of work ahead of us (research, painting, writing, recruiting, renovating, etc.), but I fully expect, anticipate, even strongly encourage – each of us to take some time to refresh this summer. In the midst of a busy time Jesus taught and modelled:
“And he said to them, “Come away by yourselves to a desolate place and rest a while.” For many were coming and going, and they had no leisure even to eat” (Mark 6:31, ESV).
Yes, while it is quieter, we may be able to get to some projects that have been sitting on our desk for a while, but please take some focused time this summer to…
Wherever you are today – whether at work, or at rest, may you sense the joy of the Lord as our CHS valedictorian encouraged us with yesterday.
