Friday's Quote

For Friday's Quote ...I decided to use Back to School Quotes since some school in Alabama started this past Thursday and some will be this coming Monday.

"Education's purpose is to replace an empty mind with an open one.".
Malcom Forbes

"Education is when you read the find print. Experience is what you get if you don't."
Pete Seeger

"The important thing is to never stop questioning."
Albert Einstein

"I am always ready to learn although I don't always like being taught."
Winston Churchill

"As long as thre are tests, there will be prayer in school's."
Author Unknown

Do you have a favorite back to school quote?

Take a moment and prayer for our schools (teachers, administration, children, staff, traffic directors, lunch room staff, custodians, etc). Also, pray for our government leaders ...their budget decisions affect our schools. For the parents to be open to help their children when they are so tired from working all day. To give their children the attention they need.

Great quotes! Here I thought AZ was the only place where school started early. Some schools started this last Monday and most of the rest start next Monday. Mom's must be loving it! :)

Thanks for the comment! I remember several years ago when my niece first went off to college, about an hour from home. My sister was a wreck, but Jenny went off and she has done well making wise choices. I have confidence your Andrea will do just the same.

Praying for you all start a new journey and for your job.

Mine at the moment is driving me crazy! I guess I should be thankful for it.

Have a great weekend!

It is so exciting that Andrea is going away for college! Such an exciting time in her life! OH how I wish I could go back and do it again! That time in your life... its so speclai but you dont realize it until its long over!

I know you will miss her... and having a hard time seeing her go... but you know that God gave you her so you could raise her to one day do this- go away to college!

I will be praying for both of you this week- praying that God brings a lot of Christian friends for Andrea at her new area and that she is protected and he directs her in the path he has for her to go in... and also for you to have peace and joy about it.

These are great quotes! We are getting ready for back to school for my two oldest! They were so cute laying all of their fresh supplies out in a row to look at! Everyone who comes by our house gets to see their bookbags and lunchboxes and notebooks and pencils. :)
