One does not have to be around Mrs. Touchton for long to appreciate her love for the Lower School students and her passion for developing their creativity in LCA’s art classes. During the past thirteen years, she has taught many students for half a dozen years in a row . . . and then reminisced with them as graduates who are now just visiting campus. Her joyful spirit—which by God’s grace reflects Jesus and is representative of so many others in the LCA family—is refreshing and contagious, nonetheless.
This is why we wanted to share the following blessing with you, in her words, from the LS art room last week:
The following is Dr. Moon’s gracious response to their sincere expression of thankfulness for the art tables:
Another beautiful aspect in this story is how Mrs. Touchton shared with the children that, while someone blessed them in a big way with the tables, they can turn around and bless someone else with a card they make or time they give in helping to make someone’s day brighter or easier. While giving may vary from person to person, we can all show generosity to act on whatever God puts on our hearts to do for someone else who crosses our path. And sometimes the biggest blessing comes in giving to someone who could never repay you!
In this fall season, as we approach the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays, people may be looking for year-end ways to embrace the spirit of giving in order to make a difference in a tangible way. Classroom wish lists are available through the PTF with interesting items, such as an area rug, butcher paper, floor lamp, Swiffer jet, shelves under the chalkboard, a globe, or art tables and stools. From small items to larger items . . . from the gift of time to the need for prayer, let’s look for ways to be a blessing to the people around us—despite the busyness of life and our schedules!
