Day 16 - 40 Days of Intentional Joy

Day 16

(For the weekend, March 3rd and March 4th)

This is the 3rd weekend of Lent as we countdown to the celebration of our Lord’s resurrection. We are taking a proactive view to Lent with acts of intentional joy for the classroom. However, on the weekends let’s turn our focus to those around us at home. 

A verse to ponder

Stand up in the presence of the aged, show respect for the elderly and revere your God. I am the Lord.

An intentional joy for the family (weekend) 

Do you know anyone who is elderly or perhaps unable to leave his or her home, hospital or care facility? Let's be intentional about visiting them this weekend. If you have children, bring them with you because there is nothing more uplifting to someone who is aged to be with children. It’s equally as good for the young to be in the presence of wisdom received from our seniors and to learn respect for the elderly. Sounds like a Win-Win for everyone.

A focus of reflection

In our busy school lives, we often mean to make time for those who need care. As you pray this weekend, pray for the widows in your neighborhood or family. Ask God for a double portion of His love and comfort. My 90-year-old mom is basically homebound right now and I know the best part of her day are limited visits from her friends and family, especially with my grandbabies. May God bless your intentional joy giving to our elders this weekend.
