Box Tops For Education

Okay, I’m sure there are a lot of moms with kids in schools that participate in Box Tops For Education, but I figured I’d give it a try anyway.  My daughter, Tylar is in the high school band.  They are asking the kids to bring in as many NON EXPIRED Box Tops For Education as they can now through December.  The student who brings in the most will win a $25.00 cash prize, which will go towards her band trip next year!  I spread the word through my email buddies, and I thought I would pass it along to my cyber buddies.

You find these boxtops on specially marked boxes of General Mills cereals, and my friend Debbie, who just sent me a snack baggie full of them told me she found a bonus box top on the GM cereal as Sams Club.

If you already buy GM cereals and wouldn’t mind cutting the box tops and saving them for me, just let me know by leaving me a comment.  I’ll happily send you a postage paid return envelope to save you the postage!

The Five Finger Prayer

 

five finger prayer

 

This is so neat. I just got this from my Mom today and I had never heard this before. This is beautiful – and it is surely worth making the 5 finger prayer a part of our lives.

1. Your thumb is nearest you. So begin your prayers by praying for those closest to you. They are the easiest to remember. To pray for our loved ones is, as C. S. Lewis once said, a “sweet duty.”

2. The next finger is the pointing finger. Pray for those who teach, instruct and heal. This includes teachers, doctors, and ministers. They need support and wisdom in pointing others in the right direction. Keep them in your prayers.

3. The next finger is the tallest finger. It reminds us of our leaders. Pray for the president, leaders in business and industry, and administrators. These people shape our nation and guide public opinion. They need God’s guidance.

4. The fourth finger is our ring finger. Surprising to many is the fact that this is our weakest finger, as any piano teacher will testify. It should remind us to pray for those who are weak, in trouble or in pain. They need your prayers day and night. You cannot pray too much for them.

5. And lastly comes our little finger – the smallest finger of all which is where we should place ourselves in relation to God and others. As the Bible says, “The least shall be the greatest among you. ” Your pinkie should remind you to pray for yourself. By the time you have prayed for the other four groups, your own needs will be put into proper perspective and you will be able to pray for yourself more effectively.
