Yesterday (Tuesday), we had the opportunity to visit a school down the road from where we live. Our friend Fritz works there. He asked if we would come during the time that the kids were eating lunch so we could help serve. Take a look at these pictures; lunch is a little bit different procedure than how we do in American schools.
We were walking around to different classrooms and visiting with the kids while they were eating lunch and I went over to see the 2nd grade class. Fritz teaches the 2nd grade class and he was helping serve food so there were no adults in there with the kids. I walked into the classroom with my camera and I was taking some pictures of them and they were smiling and laughing and having a great time. But then one of the second graders got all of the kid’s attention, and they all got really serious and sat down in their seats. I wasn’t sure what was going on until I continued to watch. They all sat down, bowed their heads, and thanked the Lord for their food… Second graders. With no adult supervision. It would’ve been so easy for them to skip that part and to keep smiling for the “blan” taking pictures, or to just start chowing down on their food. Priorities, man..
Most of you who are reading this probably just finished eating something for lunch. Say a prayer and thank the Lord for giving you something to eat today, and also say a prayer for the many people who are without food today.
“Always be joyful. Never stop praying. Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus.”
-1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 NLT
