Why are you downcast, O my soul?
Why so disturbed within me?
Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise Him my Savior. ..
"Random acts of kindness"
"Pass it forward."
Luke 6:31 "The Golden Rule"
Do to others as you would have them do to you.
1 Corinthians 13:4-5
Love is patient, love is kind.
It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ, God forgave you.
. . .For out of the overflow of the heart , the mouth speaks.
Quotes from the beginning of the school year letter from my Superintendent:
"The best way for us to accomplish this (have an even better year than last of shaping young minds) is to work as a team and support one another. One thing I am asking my principals to do is support everyone being positive and to discourage people from talking negative about other people. I do not want or expect our staff to say negative things about other staff, if you cannot be positive, silence is golden.
Remember the Old Chinese Proverb:
'A child's life is like a piece of paper on which every person leaves a mark.'
We need to be sure our mark is a plus, not a negative."
"Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it; 'Love your neighbor as yourself.' All the law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments."
