Praise Thurday lets pray


We also started where we left off last week with Praise Thursday in “Let’s Pray’ By James Banks! Here a little bit of what we talked about! We prayed these verses –

Psalm 23

A Psalm of David.

The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing.
    He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters,
    he refreshes my soul.
He guides me along the right paths
    for his name’s sake.
Even though I walk
    through the darkest valley,[a]
I will fear no evil,
    for you are with me;
your rod and your staff,
    they comfort me.

You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.
Surely your goodness and love will follow me
all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord


Psalm 68: 7-10

7 When you, God, went out before your people,
when you marched through the wilderness,[d]
the earth shook, the heavens poured down rain,
before God, the One of Sinai,
before God, the God of Israel.
You gave abundant showers, O God;
you refreshed your weary inheritance.
10 Your people settled in it,
and from your bounty, God, you provided for the poor.

Mystery Monday – School Lunches

Today was Mystery Monday on the Afternoon Drive and we had a Mystery Question about school lunches.

A recent study (which you can find here) researched the amount of time students had to eat their school lunches, and how that impacted their food choices and the nutritional value they received. I asked you what the premium amount of time students needed to eat was, and Sarah from Lexington called in and correctly guessed 25 minutes.

I recapped the Fredericktown Tomato Show and told you all about the pictures from the 4 days of the Tomato Show, which you can find here.

Our Word of the Day was vaunted, an adjective meaning described as good or great, or often praised. You can read more on that here.

Have an awesome week!
