a post of several titles

title 1.  J O Y
title 2.  the reason for the season
title 3.  character building for winter break
etc.

simply put, we'll be working on focusing on JOY this winter break.  what a perfect time to do it, seeming that it's our saviour's birth-season.  a time of joy.  and... the kids are all home for two full weeks! 
joy =
jesus
others
yourself
i've always reitterated, "others first, self last".  maybe this joy lesson will sink in better.
merry christmas season and i hope you fill your life with JOY!

Try to remember, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."

We used to sing this song at church when I was a kid: Jesus and Others and You... what a wonderful way to spell JOY, Jesus and Others and You... in the life of each girl and each boy. J is for Jesus cause has first place, O is for Others we meet face to face, Y is for You, and whatever you do put your self third and spell Joy J-O-Y! MERRY CHRISTMAS [REHSELFS]!
