It’s that time of year again—time to head back to school! You may be looking forward to school with lots of excitement, or you may be a little less than thrilled about the idea of backpacks, schoolwork, and school lunches . . . not to mention, wondering what school will look like this year. All of those feelings are completely normal! No matter how you are feeling, though, don’t forget that God will be with you every minute of every day and He wants to use YOU to love and serve others—right now, right where you are!
Speaking of where you are . . . have you ever created a time capsule? You probably remember that a time capsule is a container that holds a bunch of objects that represent a specific point in time. People usually create a time capsule, bury it, then dig it up years later as a reminder of the past.
Do you want to create your own family time capsule to celebrate the start of a new school year? You can bury it or hide it away then revisit it again at the end of the school year!
