“For we are God’s workmanship created in Christ Jesus to do good works which God prepared in advance for us to do.” Ephesians 2:10

Thoughts from the Principal…

Two of my favorite things to do in life are fishing and golfing.  These are, of course, done mainly during the months that weather permits.  But April through October, I will find a way.

As I sit here writing this article late Sunday afternoon, I am just getting in from a little bit of fishing.  Yesterday, I spent four hours on Randall Oaks Golf Course in Carpentersville.  It was a good weekend. 

It wasn’t a good weekend because I caught fish.  I didn’t.  It wasn’t a good weekend because I played golf particularly well Saturday.  I didn’t.  But as I was fishing and catching nothing today I had this thought:  It is so nice to be fishing today.  And golfing Saturday with my thirty year old son was outstanding.

Life is like that.  We can enjoy the process without necessarily catching the big one or hitting the great shot.  Sometimes just breathing fresh air, looking at beautiful blue skies and gorgeous sunsets, or waking up and having a good cup of coffee is enough.

Jesus came so that we might have life, and have it abundantly.  Knowing that our eternity with Him is secured is enough.  And some days, we might even catch the big one or make a hole-in-one!  

But if we don’t…..that’s okay too.

Blessings to All!
