October 30, 2023 Weekly Parent Letter

October 30, 2023

Dear Parents and Guardians,

“I love you, Lord, my strength.” (Psalm 18)

Have you ever been working out or exercising and thought you had no more strength to continue and then suddenly you get a burst of energy to give a little more? Sometimes this happens in our spiritual lives.  We can sometimes think we do not have the energy to pray or things might be so grim the thought, “why bother” sneaks in.  But for those who have faith, that sudden burst of energy and grace will come when we think we might be done.  Just keep moving forward and the Lord will be there to be our strength.  

My God is my rock of refuge,

Ms. Danielle Gonzalez
