Christmas Blessings!

Merry Christmas! What a great time of year as we prepare to celebrate the birth of our Savior. It’s an awesome thing to be able to point all things toward Christ, and in a season that is full of joy, peace and love, we know full well who is the originator of all of those things!

Over the recent weeks, I’ve been reflecting on the opportunities that we have had as a community to experience the richness of God’s blessings. I see his bounty in the gifts that are given to his children here at CLHS — students, faculty and staff alike. Though we all have shortcomings, it’s amazing to see how God brings people together to do his will and work through his people. I rejoice in the opportunities I see our faculty and staff taking to pray with students when times are difficult, and to walk alongside them as they journey through school. I see our coaches and directors work with students to help them hone their ability and give glory to God in the way they perform.

I certainly see the students growing in many ways! The opportunities that they have taken to serve those around them are very encouraging. Through the semester, the students have supported orphans in Africa through Hope for the Destitute, they’ve support families here at CLHS in need at Thanksgiving, and most recently have come together to support a great number of families in partnership with Christmas Bureau. In addition to all of that, they’ve supported each other through the trials and challenges of the school year.

I consider all of these true Christmas blessings because I see Christ at the Center of all of it. And how fitting it is to reflect on this truth during a season that truly has Christ at the Center, for His coming is the reason we celebrate!

May your Christmas be filled with the blessings of Christ and a remembrance of the gift he is and always will be — for our eternity!

God’s blessings … and GO CADETS!

Following His Lead,
