From the West Wing

    One week ago today, backpacks and lunch boxes were filled, faces were scrubbed and new school uniforms were donned. The halls were filled with yellow, white and blue balloons in welcome. Soon the school was filled with happy chatter and the students and parents began to gather for the first day of school. The first day of school ever for some, the first day of the last year at Fairview for others, and for all a new beginning of a new year. One of my friends posted the following on Facebook just before school started: “It’s not back to school – It’s forward to what’s next.” I like that.

    Forward to what’s next; an interesting and inspiring thought. So what is next? What does the future hold? Will it be filled with joy or sadness? Will we have financial gain or loss? Is our future healthy or will sickness strike? Sometimes we think that if God would just lay out the future for us, we could be more prepared. However, I have come to realize that if God showed us the future and all that it held for us, most of us would not be able to handle the knowledge. And besides that, if we knew the future and could adequately prepare for it, we would never have to rely on God and his Grace.

    So, what does the future hold for Fairview Christian School? I really don’t know. But, at the risk of being cliché, I know who holds the future. With such a positive and upbeat first day of school last week, I believe the future for Fairview is bright. And after the positive PTF meeting last night, with fabulous ideas flowing from those in attendance, I believe the future for Fairview is even brighter. But I also believe, that no matter what, God is truly in control here and He is our strong tower.
