A Note From Cathy - Children spell Love "TIME"
Each of you remain in my prayers daily as you are dealing with the ever changing circumstances of our current challenge with COVID 19. I know it is especially challenging for those who are working from home and trying to organize schooling with your children and teens. It is critical to be very compassionate and generous with yourselves when you find irritation and frustration mounting.
God's love and compassion for our struggles are greater than we can imagine. Rest in that assurance. Sharing short breaks of time during the day where you completely unplug and give your child your undivided attention will be a blessing to all.
Jill Wiggins and Kylie Kosko have put together great resources for your children and teens. Check out the Parent Resources to help you "put your oxygen mask on first" as flight attendants say during preflight instructions. Nancy McGovern's breathing exercises are awesome to relieve stress...short and super effective!
This week Dave and I have designed a special Holy Week for Families service you will get for Good Friday to share with your children. It will include some live tadpoles and our Easter bunny, Esther!
Please feel free to email me if you have any questions or concerns. I hold you continually in my prayers.
Cathy Norman, Interim Family Coordinator
