Seventh Grade and English — Mrs. Yurk

Weeks of May 17th and 24th

Family Scripture:   "And I will ask the Father, and He will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever- the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept Him, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him. But you know Him, for He lives with you and will be in you" (John 14:16-17).

          I can hardly believe it, but this will be my last web page update for the school year.  To the students -- we're not done yet!! :) What a year. It began one way, for many of us, so similarly to the way many years in the past have.  It certainly is ending far differently, so differently than we expected.   Yet within those differences, there are some constants: just like in years past, we look so different at the end of the year than we did at the beginning (I just saw the yearbooks :); we worked hard, struggled some, and succeeded more; and we built a sense of community as a class -- celebrating many accomplishments, challenging each other to grow, and sincerely praying for one another.  One more constant:  Jesus is still our King, He is still seeking us, and He is still at work in our lives and in our world.  Our devotion this morning was based on Micah 7:7 and Romans 8:31-32. 

From Micah: 

But as for me, I will look to the Lord;

     I will wait for the God of my salvation;

     my God will hear me.

Romans 8 -- ...If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things?

I have truly treasured my time with this class as a whole and with each of your sons and daughters.  Let's trust Him for our today, our tomorrow, and our next year.

Religion:

The last week of the 2019-2020 school year has arrived! Although this year did not end the way we had hoped, it hopefully has helped us to focus on what is truly important in life. As we head into a Summer that may be very different than any other, I pray you continue to focus on Jesus! Make time for Him daily through reading His Word and through prayer. Make time for Him weekly by coming together with the body of Christ for worship. Reflect His love and light to the world, because we were Made to Reflect!

 

As always if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to email or call me kimberly.butz@splgrafton.org or 262-377-4659 x105.

 

Blessings,

Mrs. Butz
