Natalie’s graduation from 5th grade was quite an event. The fifth grade spent a day at Islands of Adventure. Then the next day they had a beach bash with inflatable slides, bounce houses and D.J. The banquet the last day of school tied it all up. We turned the Cafeteria into a movie theatre room complete w/ paparazzi barriers (Thanks Tori and Pintrest!), red carpet and tons of gold stars. One mom made CD’s for each student highlighting their fifth grade events and showing each student’s baby pictures. At the end of the day the school did the traditional Clap Out. Every student and teacher at the school lined the sidewalks and clapped as the fifth graders lined up in a parade and took their last steps as elementary students out to their parents waiting cars. Yes, I got teary. It was a very sweet day and I now officially have a middle schooler.

Deroot the religious spirit from our country. Bind up and destroy the spirit of white supremacy. Holy Spirit breath into the dry bones and raise them up for such a time as this. “Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe on these slain, that they come to life." Peel off the coverings over our eyes. Let us see, hear and respond like you God. Let the world know we are Yours by our actions. Let the true image bearers shine light in every corner of this country. Bring down the prideful. Raise up the humble. We have heard what our ancestors say about you. Do among us as you did among them. I plead the blood of Jesus over every idol upheld by the American church. Let your fire fall from the heavens and cast them down. Enough of their dominance among your people. They are no longer welcome here in Jesus name. Cast their earthy thrones down God. Let the heavens open, shake the earths foundation, until your church puts away their earthly agendas and looks back to you. Do whatever it takes. Amen #prayer
