A Tangible Way to Bless Sandy Hook Elementary
We all wish there was something we could do. More importantly, we want a way for our families to process this together.
The National PTA has shared news that while the students are away on Christmas break, a team of volunteers will be decorating the school and turning it into a Winter Wonderland so that when they return it feels fresh, new and different.
Isn't that what God does in our lives - His mercies are new every morning.
I am thankful for fresh starts.
The clear skies after the rain.
The start of a New Year.
We can help.
If you are a teacher, you and your class can make snowflakes to send to Sandy Hook to decorate their school.
As a family, create snow flakes as a family activity.
You can go old school and fold the paper and make the cuts. Or, you can go new school and use coffee filters or popsicle sticks, or whatever else you want to create.
Each snow flake will be unique, just like each precious student who has ever graced those halls is unique, and uniquely loved by God. When you are done - hold those snow flakes in your hand and say a prayer for hope and peace and comfort. Here is a tutorial for making paper snowflakes, which I found on pinterest.
Please send all snowflakes and donations to:
