Blessed are the peacekeepers....

for they will be called sons of God.  Matthew 5:9

OK, I know that is not the scripture, but I think this story plays a little twist on it!  Meet our resident "peacekeeper"!    Sam!

Sam and Lily Clare's school started a program called "Peace Keepers".  This group acts as a student branch of the school's counseling office and help with smaller student "riffs" that may be able to be worked out with some input from an "upperclassman".    Students have to apply to be selected as a peace keeper and must have recommendations from teachers.  Last Spring, Sam decided that he would like to be a part of this program, so he put in an application.  Being one of 80+ students was a little daunting, but guess what?!?!

Sam was one of the seven who were chosen!!!!  

He has a folder in the counselor's office that he needs to check to see if there are any cases that he needs to mediate.  He has had a few situations where he has had to lend his "knowledge", but we are not privy to the details.  (Which he loves!)

But, you know what? Who cares!!!  We are so proud that he wanted to be a part of the program and even more so, that he was chosen!  I feel that he should be blessed .... whether a peace maker or "peacekeeper"! He's doing a great job!
