An Update on My Heavy Heart

A few weeks ago I wrote a post about a young boy in Mister Luke's class who had become violent with his teacher. My heart was heavy. I wanted him to heal, to have the opportunity to learn self-control, to have a second chance.

You all were so loving and compassionate toward this boy you don't even know. You were moved to pray and hope for him.

I have good news. He was back at school yesterday. He is in an anger management class to help him to cope with his temper. He has been given another chance.

Grace is such a good, pure thing!

That is good news. I hope everything works out for him. He is just a child who needs a fair chance at life.

Wow! I read your other post earlier today when I found your blog. I'm so happy to hear they gave the boy a second chance. Things aren't as always as they seem and it's good to know that this boy will receive help instead of being forgotten and casted away.

We need to continue to pray for him,
that he will get the love and understanding that only Jesus can give him.
Much love,

PTL that they are extending grace to him as Jesus would for us.
