Upps we missed the fun! Sorry.

Its Throwback Thursday! We bring you a snapshot from the past. In 1953, this camera was given as a Christmas present to Paul H. Waddles, who was a student here at the school nearly 70 years ago. Paul donated the camera back to the school many years later still in its original gift box πŸ“ΈImage attachmentImage attachment

I agree. I was just talking to …one of your students. I recall lately the Bible quote, “The joy of the Lord is my strength“. She and I were researching The tribe of Asher. Known as the Happy Tribe. Since the meaning of Asher is “happy”. Which provided the happy ending for my story, in real time, me. When traveling alongside are the “tares” the trembling griefs trials panic and attention getting click bait, fear mongering headlines…two realities clashing.
