Farewell and Hello!

Rylee Quant became the director of Our Precious Lambs in July of 2021. We are thankful that the Lord sent her to our school! We have truly appreciated her many talents and smiles. But now we say farewell and wish Rylee, and her husband Joe, God’s blessings in the next chapter of their lives.

Living Hope has called Becky Pederson to be the new director of OPL. She and her husband, Corey, have four children and live in Omaha. We are happy to welcome Becky to Our Precious Lambs!

Prayer: Thank you Lord Jesus for sending good teachers for our children!

Summer Prayer

Heavenly Father, as we look around us at the beauty of summer, you have once again shown us all your wonderful blessings. We know that you have provided much more than just our daily needs, and the pleasure of enjoying your creation. We thank you for so generously giving us your son, Jesus, our Lord and Savior. Through him you have showered us with the blessings of forgiveness, a purpose in life, and eternal life in paradise—no strings attached. For all these blessings, may we truly be thankful, dear Lord. Amen.

Mother’s Day Prayer

Adam named his wife Eve, because she would become the mother of all the living.
~ Genesis 3:20

Gracious Heavenly Father, thank you for the gift of life you gave us through our mothers. Bless mothers everywhere with love, patience, wisdom, understanding, and strength so that they can raise their children to love and honor you. 

On this Mother’s Day weekend, some people yearn for their mothers who have died. Others’ hearts are broken because of the loss of a child. Give them strength to focus on you, keeping you first in their hearts. Your love alone can satisfy all their longings; be with them and comfort them. 

We thank you that you sent your Son, Jesus Christ, to be born of a human mother in order to save us, making us your dear children forever. In Jesus’ name we pray.  Amen

Jesus is Taken up into Heaven

The eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go. When they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted. Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
~ Matthew 28:16-20

He lifted up his hands and blessed them. While he was blessing them, he left them and was taken up into heaven.
~ Luke 24:50b-51

They were looking intently up into the sky as he was going, when suddenly two men dressed in white stood beside them. “Men of Galilee,” they said, “why do you stand here looking into the sky? This same Jesus, who has been taken from you into heaven, will come back in the same way you have seen him go into heaven.”
~ Acts 1:10-11
