Message from the Morning Devotion

One week this month, Uncle Frank came in to give us devotions on horses. He mainly discussed how God designed the horse to be for humans. They are hard working, brave and can pull a lot of weight. Because they are cooperative and trusting, humans are able to use their strengths to complete many jobs. They were even fearless charging into the enemy soldiers during wars! Although they are not used in work as often today, they are still beautiful beasts used for pleasure, and occasional jobs. Uncle Frank also talked about the bit and bridle of a horse. These tools allow humans to control their head, which effectively controls their whole body. The skull of a horse actually has a space in its teeth, which is the perfect spot for a harmless bridle to fit! In James 3, James compares the bit in a horse’s mouth to the tongue of man (James 3v3,5 - “Behold, we put bits in the horses’ mouths, that they may obey us; and we turn about their whole body…Even so the tongue is a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold, how great a matter a little fire kindleth!”). Our tongue has the power to control our entire bodies. If we lose control of what we say, we lose control of who we are, and all we do! If we can learn, instead, to allow God’s word to guide our tongue, our whole body can follow in the way God has directed us to go!

100 Day

On Thursday March 10th we will celebrate the 100th day of school. Each student is asked to bring 100 of the same thing to share with students. Be creative! Items that have been brought in the past include: cookies, stickers, jelly beans etc. It will be a Gym uniform day (no costumes & no fun lunch that day). Please do not send the students with anything sharp (i.e., tacks, staples) as everything will be going into the same bag. If you plan on sending something edible please make sure it is pre-wrapped.


CHC Fundraising
