A Note from our principal

Happy Friday, ACS Cornerstone!

As I reflected this week on last Sunday's fundraising event for Mr. Edwards, I was reminded of the verses from Ecclesiastes 4 that say, "Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor: If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up.  Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm. But how can one keep warm alone? Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken." We live in an "I" world; an "all about me" society. We need to switch the narrative to a "we" and "us". The Lord did not create us to be alone. He created us for companionship and to walk alongside each other celebrating the successes and supporting us in our valleys. Seeing so many faces come out to prepare, set up, organize, and to share a word of encouragement, a fun memory, and a hearty laugh for Mr. Edwards made my heart smile. Often we can forget the value of togetherness. Take a minute this weekend to share yourself and your family with someone else. "Two ARE better than one." 

Have a great weekend!

Serving faithfully,

Amanda J. Leonhart
