Scripture: Seeking Direction, Trusting God

Scripture: Seeking Direction, Trusting GodForward Friday!

It’s finally Friday! The morning after writing Wednesday’s blog, I began laughing while at Panera. Unsure what triggered my thoughts about thinking it was Friday while writing the night before. I apologize if anyone questioned the day of week. This has been a week working with wonderful parents in my daughter’s class, planning our school’s 8th grade graduation. The 7th grade parents always host a family reception and dance for the graduates. During one of our planning meetings, we decided to place scripture on card stock for each table. I was blessed to find directional scripture. Our theme was Dr. Seuss, Oh, the places they’ll go. I added a few more to my NIV version. If you would like a copy in the NABRE for my dear Catholic friends, I am happy to send. May God use these scriptures to encourage many seeking direction in their lives, especially with graduations beginning new seasons. Be encouraged!
