DEVOTION: Now Elimelek, Naomi's husband, died, and she was left with her two sons.  They married Moabite women, one named Orpah and the other Ruth.  After they had lived there about ten years, both Mahlon and Kilion also died, and Naomi was left without her two sons and her husband.  The Story p. 120
Sometimes when it rains it pours.  I have known many people like Naomi who had their world come crashing down on them.  Many have lost all of their family members in terrible tragedies.  Others have found out that they or someone they know has an untreatable and/or incurable illness.  Still others have lost jobs, gotten divorces, and millions of other things that this cruel world has to offer. 
When things like this happen we can go a number of different ways.  We can just give up, throw in the towel, and call it a life.  We can get angry and bitter at the world and everyone around us.  We can have a daily pity party and keep crying "Why me?"  Or we can live in God's grace, know that God has a good plan for us, and let Him work it out in our lives.
If I were you I would choose the last one.  It is the only one that really works.  When we live in God's grace we know that the things of this world will only affect us for a time.  If we let it effect us too much our lives turn out awful and we are left with nothing but sorrow and heartache.   His grace, on the other hand, is sufficient forever, never fails, and always produces good fruit. 
I urge you today, the day before Ash Wednesday, to get rid of all that bitterness, anger, self pity, and regret and lay it at Jesus feet where He will obliterate it forever.  It is as far away from you as the east is from the west! 
Prayer:  Lord God, help me to be reminded of Your faithfulness so that I can reject and shrug off every evil thing the world tries to hand me.  Amen.

The Children’s Education Initiative is seeking to place an amendment on the November ballot that would allow people to receive a Missouri state tax credit for donations made to nonprofit corporations that provide funds to improve programs in public school districts, provide scholarships for students to attend parochial K-12 schools, or support special education services for children.

Our first task is to gain sufficient signatures to place the amendment on the ballot for voters to decide.  More information and particulars about the amendment are available at www.ceimissouri.org or www.mo.lcms.org.   This is a great way to provide tax credits to individuals and companies while enhancing the K-12 education of children in Missouri.  Our Lutheran schools would use the foundation monies to provide financial assistance to families, thereby making our Lutheran schools accessible for more children.

     More information will be shared on March 9th.  If you are a registered voter, please stop by the table in the Welcome Center in the following weeks to sign the petition.  You are not voting for the amendment but simply placing it on the ballot so that you and other voters can decide in November.   

There is a $30 nonrefundable registration fee.  Students must be 3 or 4 years old by Aug 1.  Enrollment for the community will begin April 1.  For more info call Lisa Rausch or Karin Klaustermeier.
I would like to gather as many FAMILIES together to go roller skating on Sunday, April 6.  If we get 20 people or more we can get a group rate of just $5 per skater. 
We would all meet there around 1pm and skate as long as we want! 
Let me know if you want to participate!!!
I will be biking across part of Kansas, about 250 miles in all, on June 7-9 to raise money for Leadachild.org.  Lead a Child is a LCMS recognized service organization that provides funding for kids to attend schools, many of them Christian schools, in third world countries.  It has provided A LOT for ministries and missions to help kids who would otherwise have NO EDUCATION in places like Guatemala, Kenya, Uganda, Mexico, and many other places.  Please consider supporting me so that we can continue to support children throughout the world!  As of January 1, I am also on the board of directors for this organization.
THIS WEEK:  THE STORY: CHAPTER 9  "The Faith of a Foreign Woman"
Come to Bible Study on Saturday night at 4pm or Sunday morning at 9:45 to get all your questions answered and to learn more about Ruth and why she is so important to us today.
If you see the following kids around town or at church tell them you want to donate to the 30 Hour Famine Fundraiser:  Or you can call pastor at 636-359-1061 or stop by church to donate.   ALL MONEY RAISED GOES TO FEED STARVING CHILDREN AND HELP PEOPLE SUSTAIN THEIR OWN WAY OF LIVING THROUGH FARMING, EARNING A LIVING, OR FINDING CLEAN WATER SOURCES!!

A big part of The Story experience is that the whole family grows together in it as each person in the family reads it, you will all literally be on the same page.  yet, it may be hard to get discussion going or to help you get started together.   Are you looking for a way to connect with your kids as they and you read The Story together?  There's help!
If you click the link below you will find parent pages for all age groups that you can use to connect with your kids at least once a week.  Whenever your "together" time is, make it productive.  It is a .pdf file of parent pages that goes from lesson one all the way through 31.  Check it out and tell me what you think.  I think they are excellent!!
