    Alana, you of all people, have consistently shown me what it is to treasure children. All of my children have felt loved and precious in your company. And that has made a difference in their lives. Thanks for sharing.

    Alana, thanks for your post. I couldn’t help but think of the recent novel and movie about a girl named Precious (the novel is “Push” by Sapphire). This child is named Precious, but treated horribly. It is a reminder of human depravity, how twisted even our best impulses can become. And thus a reminder of our desperate need of Christ and His work for us on the Cross.

    Alana – this is a long lost contact from your childhood – oh yes I remember when you were a precious child,. My Mum (Mrs Polley) sent me a copy of your contact with her. How great to see you on here. I spent my first year teaching at Kowanyama – so love it that you are up in my old stomping ground! Must make contact with you

    MY precious!!!! My beautiful gift from God. The one who drew me to Him. I have loved and treasured every part of watching you grow and become this amazing woman of God. You bless me in so many ways. My little men at school challenge me close to my limits on some days and I have the lumps on my shins and the scars to remind me of that but when I arrive at school unexpectantly like I did today and their eyes light up as they say ‘Mrs Duuurkinnnn’, how blessed am I to be their teacher??? My God gives good gifts indeed and though I was very reluctant to take on this class at the beginning of the year, I am so glad God put me here. Thank you for this reminder to look at all children – indeed all people – as precious to God and so therefore precious to me, no matter what the behaviour or appearance. Much love, Mum
