A fire that began in. a burn
barrel engulfed a home and an
open field Thursday afternoon.
No one was home or injured at
the time of the fire. Theb fie
started around 1:24 p.m. at
2718 264th St. near Branford.
According to officials, the fire
started in a burn barrel that the
owner ignited before leaving.
The fire leapt out of the barrel
onto the dried grass, where it
made its way to a storage shed
attached to the house.
The shed was quickly en-
gulfed in flames. The attic of
the house then caught fire and
spread. The fire also burned
about six acres of grassland be-
side and behind the house. Ac-
cording to officials the house is
a total loss. Damage exceeded
$300,000, said officials.
Units from Suwannee County
Fire/Rescue stations 3, 2, 43,
and 1 responded to the call.


No borders, no bounds

The School Without Walls takes learning outside the classroom


By Vanessa Fultz
vanessa.fultz@gaflnews.com
Marianne St. Clair, founder of the School Without Walls,
believes you can't wall in a classroom. Learning takes place
in nature, where children learn during field trips and visits
from various professionals, such as naturalists and artists,
Students learn through exploration and curiosity. On a
shopping trip, students might learn adding, dividing and
budgeting. On a trail ride, they might see a mushroom, take
a photo of it and research it on the Internet.
"The lessons present themselves" through these experi-
ences, said St. Clair, who opened the school here in Sep-
tember.
After home-schooling her two children for several years,


St. Clair wanted to open a school to give other children an
opportunity to learn hands-on.
"I like that I don't have to be inside to do math," said 14-
year-old Tyanna Strimple, a home-schooler who attends the
school two days a week to foster social interaction.
Strimple said one math lesson included learning fractions
by scooping out horse feed.
Thursday students learned an anatomy lesson by dissect-
ing an artificial frog. Five students ranging from ages 5-15
crowded around their subject with a scalpel and forceps
while St. Clair called out instructions.
Reading lessons include attending a reading program at
the library once a week and learning letters on road signs

while traveling.
St. Clair said they learn
writing through art, such as
making the alphabet with
sticks or drawing letters in
sand.
Students also learn how to
problem-solve and do re-
search.
Strimple learned how to
care for a litter of sick pup-
pies. The lesson entailed re-
searching the symptoms on-
line and nursing them back
to health.
Students also learn char-
acter traits like courage and
self-esteem, said St. Clair.
Candice Davis, 15,
learned to overcome her fear
of horses while helping an
injured horse overcome his
fears.
Students also learn to
dream and plan their future.
Danielle Herb, 14, St. Clair's
daughter, says she wants to
be a holistic veterinarian.


She said she has re-
searched what it takes to en-
ter that field on the Web and
by meeting a few holistic
veterinarians. Her studies in-
clude herbs and acupunc-
ture.
"I like the way we can use
things that have been given
to us instead of things that
are invented to heal [ani-
mals]," Herb said.
While students aren't en-
gaging in a hands-on learn-
ing experience they do their
share of bookwork. Older
students learn through Flori-
da Virtual School, an on-line
program. Younger children
complete workbooks.
St. Clair said the book-
work helps students master
basic skills needed for acad-
emic success.
Students do not take tests.
St. Clair said success is
measured through a portfo-
lio .which students compile
throughout the year.
The portfolio "tells a big-


ger story than taking a test
that may set them up for fail-
ure," she said.
Though not a certified
teacher, St. Clair took a col-
lege level school starter
course through Alternative
Education Resources Orga-
nization (AERO). She said
she follows state guidelines
for private schools.
Though the school is not
accredited, St. Clair hopes to
change that in the future.
Some students attend the
school regularly while oth-
ers attend on a part-time ba-
,sis. Four full-time and seven
part-time students attend the
school.
"It's a great resource for
home-schoolers," St. Clair
said.
Annual tuition for full-
time students is $5,500.

walls.com.

ASK DR. MANTOOTHI



Q: What are some tips for brushing and
general tooth care?
A: Well, let's start with your toothbrush.
Replace your toothbrush every three months.
If you need to replace the toothbrush more
frequently, you may be brushing too hard. And
that can be bad for your gums and the
enamel on your teeth. Your dentist can show
you the right technique for brushing. You
should brush your teeth at least twice a day
with a fluoride toothpaste. Ideally, you should
brush every time after eating. Floss your teeth
at least once a day to remove the plaque and
to reach Into spots a toothbrush can't reach.
Until they are six years old, children should
be supervised by an adult when brushing
their teeth. Children should use only a pea-
sized dollop of toothpaste to make sure they
don't swallow too much fluoride. Teach
children to spit out while brushing, and not
swallow. Give a child an appropriately sized
toothbrush. Most Importantly, see your dentist
regularly at least twice a year and have
your teeth cleaned professionally on a regular
basis, as advised by your dentist.

Prevention & treatment of Vein Inflammation
Thrombophlebitis is a medical condition which occurs when vein
inflammation is caused by a blood clot. Although this condition most
commonly occurs in veins of the legs, veins of the arms and neck
may also be affected. Superficial phlebitis is one type of this
condition, which occurs when a vein near the surface of the skin is
affected. Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) occurs when a vein deep
within a muscle is affected. This is particularly threatening to health,
as the clot may dislodge and travel to the lungs, resulting in a
blocked pulmonary artery (pulmonary embolism). This condition
often results from a period of prolonged inactivity, such as sitting for
an extended time period in an airplane or car, or from an extended
amount of bed rest after surgery. Symptoms of thrombophlebitis
include warmth and tenderness in the affected area, as well as
redness and swelling. A DVT in the leg may occur with no
associated symptoms.
Medications are available for the treatment deep vein thrombosis.
Injection of a blood thinner medication, such as the anticoagulant
heparin, is used to help prevent a clot from getting larger. Warfarin
(Coumadin) is an oral anticoagulant that may be taken for several
months after the heparin treatment to further prevent clots from
growing. 416695-F

Newspapers stand

out as Florida's top

source of advertising
When Florida consumers want a new car, need a
new appliance, or are in search of the best deals at
local supermarkets, most of them, regardless of
their age, still turn to their local newspaper.
A statewide research study, conducted for the
Florida Press Association by American Opinion
Research, 'finds that two-thirds (66%) of those who
use any advertising say newspapers are their pri-
mary source of local sales and shopping informa-
tion. Even iogig younger adults, ages 18 to 29,
almost half 47%) say newspapers are their prima-
ry source. The Internet ranked second among this
age gmeup at 19%. Newspapers are even stronger
amon-g ther age groups.
"ThIe is a false perception among many people
that newspapers have become antiquated," said
Caroltiudler, president and publisher of The
News-Press and Gannett Sun Coast Newspapers.
"These study results are not surprising to those in
the industry, but in a changing world, they confirm
the value of a newspaper's portability and its in-
depth local shopping information."
The study found that Florida consumers look to
newspapers as the top source of advertising for a
wide variety of products and services including
groceries, major appliances, autos, hardware, real
estate, employment and local entertainment. Gro-
ceries, jobs and entertainment are particularly
strong, with 6 in 10 consumers saying newspapers
are their ma'. source.
SThese are some other key findings of the survey:
82% (10.2 million) of adults in Florida read at
least one newspaper during the week, much higher
than the national average of 52%.
Newspaper readership is strong among all demo-
graphic groups, eyen among the youngest adults
ages 18 to 24.
Almost 6 in 10 Floridians read a weekly or com-
munity newspaper.
"This study confirms that Florida consumers are
avid newspaper readers," said Hudler. "It also
shows there is a strong potential for newspapers to
further build readership."

COMMENTARY


A new monster to persecute


I'm switching
monsters to pick
on. Bigfoot is bor-
ing. It doesn't reap
any havoc, has
learned to speak
English, borrows
garlic to keep off
the ticks and be-
fore long will be-
come an unin-
sured motorist. Dwain Walden
The only thing
scary about that is the uninsured mo-
torist thing.
I'm moving my cynicism over to the
chupacabras now, given that they re-
portedly have migrated from South
America into the U.S.
I saw a television special on the
chupacabras the other night, and let
me tell you that mescal and tequila
can produce a much more bodacious
creature than Jack Daniels. The differ-
ence comparison between the two
monsters is akin to giving a politician
just a pat on the back or instead giving
him a large contribution and more
power.
Translated, chupacabra means "goat
sucker." It gains its legend by killing


goats and sucking their blood. The im-
ages that have been drawn of them
(like Bigfoot, no actual photos) shows
this gargoyle-looking thing that has
wings like a bat and fangs like a vam-
pire. It looks like a crossbreed of an
American and a Japanese monster
movie. It has claws, a long tail and red
eyes.
It wasn't until November 19, 1995,
that a detailed description of chu-
pacabras came from an "eyewitness,"
according to this program. Through
the end of 1995, chupacabras have
been blamed for more than 1,000 mys-
terious animal deaths all resulting
from blood loss through one or more
puncture wounds similar, I think, to
people who were mistaken as deer by
novice hunters.
Now don't get me wrong, I'm not -
saying I believe in chupacabras. I've
just gotten bored with the Bigfoot
thing, especially after I got that call
last week from someone who said one
had been killed in Alabama and news
teams were covering the event. Some-
one obviously had heard a couple of
disc jockeys' bantering and thought
they were reporting news.
Also, my e-mail has been swamped


with Bigfoot hunters ever since I
wrote that first tongue-n-cheek piece
about Big Hairy. I've been called
everything you can imagine except a
chupacabra.
So by switching monsters to perse-
cute, I figure I won't be getting much
e-mail from Mexican and Peruvian
villagers about their experiences with
chupacabras. But, if it is now showing
up in the American Southwest,. I'm
sure one will be spotted on the road to
Albuquerque where it no doubt will
make a wrong turn.
So by turning my attention to the
chupacabras, I define myself as one of
those who believes if you're going to
make up a fairy tale or a comic book
character, then give it some whammy.
Wings, fangs, shape changing, fire
belching, etc. That's why I always pre-
ferred Superman over Batman. Bat-
man couldn't even fly. He just ran
around town wearing a pair of leotards
with a shower curtain tied around his
neck. If he wanted to get past a tall
object, he had to climb a rope or a fire
escape. Superman could leap it or fly
over it. If you give a character a cape
and pajamas, then give him superpow-
ers not just a fancy car. Same with


monsters.
Apparently this chupacabra thing
can change shape quicker than a
politician can change his statement.
Bigfoot can't do that. Bigfoot some-
times is posed in a "missing link" pos-
ture. But the chupacabra belongs in a
class of creature all: by itself, not hav-
ing scientific links to any known
predator except maybe agents for
the Internal Revenue Service. (Just
kidding. By the way, I don't itemize. I
take the short form.)
Of course the chupacabra enthusi-
asts think it's something prehistoric
that somehow survived millions of
years without anyone noticing until
now. Apparently it was airborne when
all those meteorites hit.
I'm now waiting for a theory that the
return to the American Southwest is
linked to aliens that were supposed to
have crashed in New Mexico many
years ago. I'm not trying to spread a
rumor, I just like a good story with
fangs.

NFCC NEWS



R.N. students graduate, make history at NFCC


Class includes 3


Live Oak students



After more than five years of planning,
two years of classes and clinicals, and
provisional accreditation by the Florida
Board of Nursing, North Florida
Community College recognized its first
class of registered nursing students who
graduated with A.S. degrees during a time-
honored pinning ceremony Dec. 17
at the First Baptist Church in Madison.
Twenty students took part in the services
marking their completion of professional
nursing education under the direction of
Nita Fico, RN, ARNP-C, director of NFCC
Allied Health Programs. President Morris
G. Steen, Jr., who spearheaded the drive to


bring the registered nursing program to
NFCC, congratulated students and
nursing faculty for the historic
achievement.
"Graduating our first Registered
Nursing class is a true milestone for
North Florida Community College," he
said. "The impact these nurses will have on
our rural communities over the course of
their careers is incalculable. It is a very
significant development for health care in
North Florida."
The R.N. students are now eligible to
apply to take the National Council
Licensure Examination for Registered
Nurses which confers official graduate
R.N. status.
The pinning ceremony, a symbolic
welcoming of newly graduated nursing
students into the nursing profession, was

the highlight of the evening. Nursing
instructor Michele Richardson, RN, MSN,
presented each graduating student with an
enamel pin with the words NFCC
Registered Nursing, encircling an oil lamp,
a symbol of the originator of modem
nursing, Florence Nightingale, who is also
known as "The Lady with the Lamp.""
The nursing pin is a 1,000-year old
symbol of service to others dating back to
the Maltese Cross, adopted by crusaders
and worn on their habits as a symbol of
service to Christianity. The tradition of the
nursing pin and the
ceremonial pinning known today,
actually originated in the 1860's at the
Nightingale School of Nursing at St.
Thomas
Hospital in London. Florence
Nightingale honored her most outstanding
graduated by presenting each of them with
a medal for excellence.
After lighting the symbolic lamp of
knowledge, the nursing students recited the
Nightingale Pledge first used in 1893 as an
oath for the nursing profession in the U.S.



Richardson and Marcia Bass, RN,MSN,
presented awards to outstanding graduates.
Melissa Denton of Perry received the John
D. Archbold Memorial Hospital Leadership
and Achievement Award. Michelle Miller of
Greenville
received the Excellence in Clinical
Practice Award. Tracey Gniewek of Madison
received the Academic Excellence in
Nursing Award and Jennifer Wimberley of
Mayo received the Outstanding
Achievement in Nursing Award.
The student class planned and organized
the ceremony. Officers are President Connie
Walker of Madison, VP Melissa Denton of
Perry, Chaplain Tracey Gniewek, Historian

A MESSAGE TO FORMER MEMBERS OF SVEC

Suwannee Valley Electric Cooperative Inc. has placed a
listing on our website of former members who have
uncashed capital credit checks or retired capital credits
that were not able to be mailed due to invalid addresses.
The invalid addresses are due to members moving out of
our service area and not notifying the Cooperative of their
new address, or the refund check being returned by the
U.S. Postal System to the Cooperative as "undeliverable."
The first year that a check is returned, the Cooperative
codes the account and adds it to a listing of members that
were previously published in the local newspapers and
now on SVEC's website.

To see if you have an uncashed check or retired,
unpaid capital credits, please go to our website at
http://www.svec-coop.com and click on the tab for
Member Services. Find the Capital Credit link and go to
"Unclaimed Checks" to check for your name or the name
of a family member or friend who has moved out of the
area. A form is available on-line that you or the named
individual can print out and complete.

The owner of the funds should complete the form and
return it to the Cooperative. Allow 6 8 weeks for our
capital credit department to update the information. Be
sure that the form is completely filled out, including a
telephone number in case we need to call you for
additional information.

Remember that we are not able to give out detailed
information by telephone due to not being able to properly
identify the caller. If the owner of the capital credits is

Understanding Heart Failure


According to the American Heart Association (AHA),
nearly five million Americans are living with heart
failure, and more than half a million new cases are
reported each year.
While that's certainly a large number, it may also be
comforting to people with a family history of heart
disease or those recently diagnosed with heart failure to
know that they're not alone and that there's no reason
they cannot enjoy a full life. Of course, knowing about
heart failure and its symptoms and risk factors can only
help make the battle that much easier.

What Is Heart Failure?
Contrary to what its name might imply, heart failure
does not mean the heart has stopped working. Instead,
heart failure occurs when the heart stops pumping the
amount of blood necessary for the body to function
properly. As this happens, the body then tries to make
up for it in a handful of ways, such as the heart
beginning to beat faster and the heart actually
expanding. As the heart chamber expands, it stretches
more and contracts more strongly, enabling it to pump
more blood.
Another thing the body does is hold onto salt and
water, which increases the amount of blood in your
bloodstream. This leads to congestion, hence the
moniker "congestive heart failure" used by some in the
medical profession.

How Does Heart Failure Manifest Itself?
Because the body does things to make up for the heart
not pumping blood as well as it should, heart failure is
often difficult to recognize. Oftentimes, the
aforementioned steps the body takesare so effective
that it's common to not even know the heart is
suffering from a disease.
However, as the AHA notes, heart failure is typically
a chronic disease, meaning it's a long-term condition
that will continue to get worse. As hard as the body
works to make up for the heart not pumping blood at
full capacity, eventually the body will begin to lose
ground and certain symptoms will arise. Some of the
early symptoms include feeling tired easily, being short
of breath upon physical exertion, feelings of weakness
and dizziness, and heart palpitations, where the heart
feels as if it's racing or pounding.
Eventually, the fluid buildup that occurs becomes too
much for the body as well, and several symptoms can
manifest themselves as a result.
* Swelling in the lower half of the body, such as the
legs, ankles or feet
* Coughing or wheezing, particularly when lying
down


CAPTION: While genetics plays a big role, a healthy diet can help reduce the risk of heart failure.


* Increased need to urinate at night
* Shortness of breath, even when resting

What Causes Heart Failure?
Many health conditions arise as a result of lifestyle
choices such as poor diet or negative behaviors such as
smoking or excessive drinking. Others are the result of
genetics, such as being born with a defect. Heart failure
can result from both personal behaviors and genetics.
Controllable factors that are associated with heart failure
include smoking, poor diet (particularly eating foods that
are high in cholesterol), lack of exercise, and being
overweight. In other words, any of those conditions only
increase a person's risk of heart failure. They can als
manifest themselves in several different ways.
Coronary Artery Disease: this happens when
cholesterol and fatty deposits build up in the heart's
arteries, lessening the amount of blood that reaches the
heart, forcing the heart to work harder as a result. A high-
cholesterol diet is a big risk factor for coronary artery
disease.
Hypertension: also known as high blood pressure,
hypertension increases a person's risk of developing heart
failure by two to three times according to the AHA.
Hypertension can occur from too much stress, be it work-
or family-related. A great way to relieve stress is through
regular physical exercise. People who do not exercise
regularly increase their risk of hypertension, and in doing
so, their risk of heart failure as well.
Lung disease: when the lungs are not functioning
properly, it causes the heart to work that much more to
get oxygen to the rest of the body. Smoking increases the
risk of lung disease, which then increases the risk of heart
failure.

Heart Association Web site at www.americanheart.org.

YOUR LIFE IN 2008


By Pam Campbell


( / y e are in a new year, 2008. What will
you do with your life in this new year?
q 1Will you race frantically trying to get
everything done, work too hard, stress
too much, or will you sit back and watch as others do it
all? Life seems to get so busy that most people don't have
the time for the things of God as they once did and some
just seem like they don't care. How about you? Do you
have big plans for the year 2008? Lot's of goals that you
feel you must accomplish? Some people make many new
year's resolutions and most of them are usually never
kept. Have you bothered to consult God concerning his
path for you in 2008? God's word, the Bible has all the
answers to all the questions anyone can ever ask. We all
would save ourselves so many problems if we would learn
to read God's word and talk to God to hear what he has to
say. God has a plan for everyone's life, he has a perfect
plan for your life! The Bible says in Psalm 119:105 "Thy
word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path." If
we read our Bible we will see clearly what direction we
should go in every area everyday. God will light up the
way so that we will be able to walk in the best path for
our life.

God never expects us to walk alone, he always walks
right with us. Jesus goes before us and enters on our be-
half. Hebrews 6:19-20 "We have this hope as an anchor
for the soul, firm and secure. It enters the inner sanctuary
behind the curtain, where Jesus, who went before us, has
entered on our behalf. He has become a high priest forev-
er, in the order of Melchizedek." God has given us his
hope as our anchor, it is firm and secure and Jesus has al-
ready gone before us, has entered on our behalf, he is al-
ready helping you, he will never fail you. It is so good to
know that we have a firm and secure anchor in Jesus. I
know this past fall my family and I saw first hand how
God takes impossible situations and turns them around for
our good in ways. that all of our thinking, researching and
planning could have never thought of and could never
have done: We know that God does indeed do miracles
and not just the healing kind, he cares about his children,
every detail of our lives. We can trust in our anchor, Jesus
he will never fail us.

I realize that there are people that don't even think
about the new year, some that don't care what they do or
what happens. That is just as sad, because if you don't
care then you will miss out on so many blessings that God
has for you in 2008.

When you think about this new year, 2008 what do you
see as your main priority, the most important things that
you want to do, where do you see yourself at the end of
this new year? Have you thought about what you can do
for God this year, who's life you can touch, who you can
help, what you can do that will make a difference in some-
one's life? All of us that are alive, no matter what kind of
education we may have, what type of job or career we
work in, what our health may be like, how much money
we have or don't have, where we live, whatever our cir-
cumstances in our life may be we can still make a differ-
ence in someone's life. We can still pray, we can still min-
ister for God in some way. We.need to start looking for
places that we can help, people that need help, there are
always needs, always lonely people, or sick people, chil-
dren that need help, neighbors, family, friends, and the
people that you see in the stores or the mailman or lady,
someone that works at your bank, a cashier or waitress, a
teacher, a doctor, we all come in contact with someone,
sometime, somewhere. We can share the light of the
Gospel with them, we can see if any of them have a need
that we can help with, we can certainly remember to pray
for them. Maybe God wants you to work for him in your
church, or in a different church, or maybe he needs you to
volunteer helping children or the elderly. It could be that
he wants you to write for him, or send letters and cards to,
shut ins. I don't know what God has in mind for each of
you, but he does. Learn to ask God what he would have
you to do each and every day of your life. Don't just as-
sume that because you have always done things a certain
way all your life or for the last 10 years or whatever the
case may be, that he wants you to continue, maybe he
does, but maybe he has greater plans for your life in 2008.
Don't miss out on ALL of his wonderful plans for your

life. Maybe you get scared thinking about another year to
get through and what might or might not happen whether it
is good or bad. God promises that he will NEVER leave
us, learn to follow in his footsteps and give your worry and
fears over to God.

I am sure that you have heard and read Footprints more
than once, but I want to include it here, because I believe
that we need to be reminded in 2008 that our God will nev-
er forsake us. As you read it please think about how pow-
erful the words really are and what they mean to your life.



Footprints in

the Sand


By Mary Stevenson


One night I dreamed I was walk-
ing along the beach with the
Lord.
Many scenes from my life
flashed across the sky.
In each scene I noticed
footprints in the sand.
Sometimes there
were two sets of foot-
prints,
other times there
were one set of foot-
prints.

This bothered
me because I no-
ticed
that during the
low periods of my
life,
when I was suf-
fering from
anguish, sorrow
or defeat,
I could see only
one set of foot-,
prints.


So I said to the
Lord,
"You promised me
Lord,
that if I followed you,
you would walk with
me always.
But I have noticed that N
during the most trying periods
of my life
there have only been one set of
footprints in the sand.
Why, when I needed you most, you
have not been there for me?"

The Lord replied,
"The times when you have seen only one set of foot-
prints in the sand,

is when I carried you."

You see Jesus is. always with us, he is always on time
and he will never forget us, or forsake us. Hebrews 13:5b
says "I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee." No matter
where we are God will never leave us and he always wants
the best for us. In Deuteronomy 31:8 The LORD himself
goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave
you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discour-
aged."
Remember when you make your plans, when you get
ready to do something and maybe the timing doesn't turn
out, or if you are running late for something and can't find
your keys, that God may be keeping you from being in a
horrible, fatal accident. We should learn to trust God, re-
member he knows what is going to happen to us through-
out our entire life. He knows where we will be everyday of
the year and wants us tolearn to trust him
more.

"In all thy ways acknowledge
,*\ him, and he shall direct thy
paths." Proverbs 3:6. Re-

rect our path, he will

a we will be
very

when we

S ''Lord. Trust
him with
your life in
2008, it will
be a year
full of God's
blessings!

would like to leave you
with the words that appear
on a magnet in the kitchen
"Only one life will soon be past
only what's done for Christ will last."
What will you do for him in 2008? I pray
that each of us will draw closer to the Lord and serve him
more. Have a blessed New Year!

Aunt Pam's KIDS CORNER


YOUR LIFE IN 2008


By Pam Campbell
Happy New Year Kids! I can hardly believe that since I wrote to you last time we have entered
into a brand new year, 2008!
What will you do with your life in this new year? Do you have lot's of big plans for the new
year? Many times people make new year's resolutions, you know they promise themselves that
they are going to do things better or different. Sometimes people set all kinds of goals for them-
selves and then they never remember to do them. How about you? Do you have anything that you
want to do better or change this year? Maybe do better in school, or get along better with others,
maybe help your family more, take more time to talk to God and read the Bible. Or will you keep
racing around trying to be in too many things, doing too much and not have any time for God or
your family? Maybe you are one of the kids that would rather just watch others do it all and you
just want to watch TV or play video games, and not get involved. When the New Year arrived did
you think to ask God what he wants for you in 2008?
God's word, the Bible has all the answers to all the questions you will ever have. As kids you
have an exciting year ahead of you, with many new things to learn, places to go, things to do, and
if you trust in God he will keep you safe and help you to know what is really the best for you. God
knows what will make you the very happiest and be the very best for you, life. The Bible says in
Psalm 119:105 "Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path." If you read your
Bible, God will show you his way so that you will be able to walk in the best path for your life.
Have you thought about what you can do for God this year, how you can help others, what
you can do that will make a difference in someone's life? Each of you, no matter how old you are,
what grade you are in school, where you live, what you look like, how much money you have,
how big or small you may be, where you go to school or church, no matter who you are, can still
make a difference in someone's life. You can pray for others. We need to start looking for places.
that we can help, find people that need help, there are always needs, always lonely people, or sick
people, children that need help, neighbors, family, friends, your teachers, or Sunday School teach-
ers, your mailman or lady, a coach, a dance teacher, a club leader, kids at school, your doctor or
dentist, or all the other people that you and your family meet in your life. You can share the Jesus
with them, you can see if any of them have a need that you can help with, and you can pray for
them.
God has great things planned for YOU in 2008, don't miss it! Be sure to follow him, by talk-
ing to him everyday and hearing what he has to tell you in his word, the Bible. Don't ever be
afraid of what might happen or worry about how you will do something, learn to trust in God and
not to worry. God promises that he will NEVER leave us, learn to follow in his footsteps and give
your worry and fears over to God.
Have you read the poem Footprints in the Sand? You have probably seen it on pictures,
posters, key chains, cups, all kinds of things, there might even be something in your house with
it on it! It is a really famous poem and it is about footprints on the beach and how God carries us,
be sure to read it, it is pretty cool!

Footprints in the Sand
By Mary Stevenson


One night I dreamed I was walking along the beach with th
Many scenes from my life flashed across the sky.
In each scene I noticed footprints in the sand.
Sometimes there were two sets of footprints,
other times there were one set of footprints.
This bothered me because I noticed
that during the low periods of my life,
when I was suffering from
anguish, sorrow or defeat,
I could see only one set of footprints.
So I said to the Lord,
"You promised me Lord,
that if I followed you,
you would walk with me always.
But I have noticed that during the most trying periods
of my life
there have only been one set of footprints in the sand.
Why, when I needed you most, you have not been there
for me?"
The Lord replied,
"The times when you have seen only one set of foot-
prints in the sand,
is when I carried you." ,

I knew you would like that! I mean God promis-
es that he will never leave you, and he really doesn't,
when we think that he has and that we are walking alone,
he is actually carrying you! You see Jesus is always with
you, he is always on time and he will never forget us, or
forsake us. Hebrews 13:5b says "I will never leave thee,
nor forsake thee." No matter where we are God will nev-
er leave us and he always wants the best for us.
There may be a time we don't get to do something
we really want to do, the reason might be because God
who sees our future, knows that if we are in a certain spot
at a certain time we might get hurt, or killed. God always
looks out for us. Here is a great verse from the Bible "In
all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy
paths." Proverbs 3:6. Remember that when we talk to
God and ask him to show us the right way he will direct
our path, he will help us to know how to live, how to be
happy, to be what God knows that we can be.
What really matters the most is for each of you to
know Jesus and to love others. What will you do for him
in 2008? Will you remember to live for Jesus in the new
year? I hope that your life in 2008 is really blessed by
God!


Hey Kids! Have fun trying to find
all of these words in this puzzle!
