Speaking of Good Dr’s – Happy Dr. Seuss Day!
This morning at Gramercy in celebration of Dr. Seuss Day, our Kindergarten class presented our graduating Seniors with copies of Oh, the Places You’ll Go! It was so precious watching the bookends of our school sit together and read! I have no doubt as graduation approaches, many of our Seniors’ parents will be having vivid memories of their sons and daughters as they began school on that very first day. Senior year, and especially graduation, is an emotional time for students and parents alike. Although our sweet Kindergartners can hardly imagine being ready to graduate, our Seniors have the bittersweet gift of memory, and our prayer at GCS is that they will carry their memories of their time with us close to their hearts as they venture out into the world.
More importantly, we pray they will carry the love of Jesus and the truth of God’s Word and the reality of His Presence to all of the many places they may go. Dr. Seuss’s wish reads like this:
“You’ll be on your way up! You’ll be seeing great sights! You’ll join the high fliers who soar to the heights… on and on you will hike, and I know you’ll hike far and face up to your problems whatever they are… So… be your name Buxbaum or Bixby or Bray or Moredecai Ali Van Allen O’Shea, you’re off to Great Places! Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting. So... get on your way!”
God’s promise reads like this:
” So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” – Isaiah 41:10
