Scattered seeds are small gifts of agape to our readers between weekly inspirations. These “seeds” could be a picture, a song, a heartfelt sentiment, a quote, a recipe, or updates about team events. Our hope is to brighten your day with a ray of sunshine.
On May 12th, 2012 we celebrated the graduation of our son from Tarleton State University in Stephenville, Texas. He received a Bachelor of Science in Geoscience. His plans are to spend a year in Central America in the mission field. Thanks to our wonderful friends and family for your unwavering support through the years.
The following poem is lovingly dedicated to all of our high school and college graduates. It is posted with written permission of the author, Joanna Fuchs.
A New Beginning
As you make a new beginning in your life, graduate,
be aware of important things you didn’t learn in school:
As you pursue your dreams,
remember to take time to help and serve others
even if doing so slows you down a little.
As you explore and develop your unique talents,
realizing that your special abilities
are gifts from God.
As life hands you challenges, welcome them
as ways to become smarter and stronger.
As you acquire material things,
know that your most important possessions
are honesty, integrity,
and the desire to make a difference.
May your new path take you where you want to go
and also bring you pleasant surprises!
