WHY IS TODAY SPECIAL?

WHY IS TODAY SPECIAL?

Well, it’s not my birthday. It’s not my anniversary. And it’s not Christmas.

It’s…Bring Your Bible to School Day. Unfortunately, that’s not happening here in Canada.

Many, many, decades ago, I was allowed to read the Bible and recite the Lord’s Prayer in public school each morning. I took for granted that this everyday occurrence would always be part of our Canadian heritage/culture. Not so.

However, today, schools all over America have climbed on board.

Jim Daly, President of Focus on the Family, is:

“…celebrating that more than 100,000 students are expected to

participate in #‎BringYourBible to School Day.”

I’m celebrating with my American neighbors that (at least for today) children are “allowed” to bring their Bibles to school.

I was especially encouraged when I read this quote written by Brytney, a fourteen-year-old girl:

“If you believe in God…take a stand, be like thousands of others and bring your Bible to school.”

Okay, so I’m too old to attend public or even high school, but I’m not too old to take a stand.

Today is my second birthday. That’s the first reason everyone should celebrate. Not only was I born on November 11, I was also born in 2011. Yahowl!

My first day in my new home. I'm eight-weeks-old.
