A Season of Thanksgiving – A Child’s Heart of Gratitude
As we engage this season where we focus on giving thanks, I am reminded of the simplicity of gratitude from a child’s perspective. While reading through the many BCS students’ lists of who or what they were grateful for, I noticed that material things were not on many lists. The students’ lists reflected gratitude for their family, friends, school, teachers, church, and pets.
May we all have a child-like perspective on gratitude this Thanksgiving.
Enjoy this heartfelt essay below by one of our sixth-grade students. It sums up all the reasons so many of us are thankful for BCS.
Why I am Thankful for BCS
By Emily Miller
There are so many awesome things to say about BCS that it is hard to put into words. I know for sure, because I have been a student here at BCS, that there will be a change in you, inside and out. Whether it’s your first year or your last year at BCS.
One of the best things, if not the best thing, is the staff and teachers. This school would not be what it is today without the outstanding staff and teachers. The teachers are always encouraging everyone every step of the way. If I am having trouble with a subject, or if something hard in my life is going on, the loving teachers always help me handle it. There is never an obstacle too big for a BCS teacher to help students overcome, no matter what it is. I want to give a huge thank you to our exceptional teachers.
The staff and volunteers are just as amazing. Every time I see a volunteer, they greet me with a warm smile and a happy hello. They are always the first people to lend a helping hand wherever it is needed, no matter what it is. I think it is so cool that of all the things the volunteers could be doing, like making money at their dream job, or going out of state to visit their family, they choose to put BCS and Jesus first. They are here helping to make a difference in our school. We are truly thankful for our wonderful volunteers.
Everyone at BCS is always encouraging each other to be more like Christ. I wonder what it would be like to be a teacher here and to see the students change throughout the year to be more like Jesus. All the way from the janitor, to the principal we are all helping each other not just grow mentally but spiritually too.
I love everything about Bible Center. I hope the students at BCS will continue to grow academically and spiritually. Thank you, staff, teachers, and volunteers for your amazing work to help students grow closer to God.
Have a bless and wonderful Thanksgiving break!
