Since I was in high school, then a youth pastor’s wife, now a mom of school-aged kids, I’ve gotten up early on the third Wednesday in September and held hands around the flag pole and prayed. It’s not a strange, cultish ritual, it’s See You at the Pole. And it’s awesome. I love hearing nervous, young voices pray in front of their school. I love seeing teachers take a stand and join us. I love that we live in a country that allows us this freedom.
And for my own comic relief:
I’m talking about God-sized dreams that are a size too big with Holley today. I’d love for you to dream big with me. (Plus, there’s a giveaway!)
Speaking of giveaways, here are the winners from The Mercy House launch last week:
- Africa-shaped custom cookies made by Bake at 350: Congrats to Stacy of 29LincolnAvenue
- Hand made necklaces from The Mercy Shop: Jenn of Jar Full of Rocks, reader Ashley Hall, Brandi of Autumn Fawn, Amy’s Finer Things, and Agent 99 ! Congratulations everyone! Can you please email me to confirm?
