Shock and Awe

Let me tell you how impressed I am right now. After school one of the administrators at my school was yelling at a kid and he ended up getting suspended for the rest of the school year. He was REALLY mad. On the way out of school, he decided to punch the glass in the door. HE BROKE IT!!!! I was blown away! His hand has got to be broken and bleeding. If I tried to hit a door out of anger, I would have a hurt hand and the door would look the same. Wow!

Lord, thanks for comic relief at the end of my long day! You are so amazing! And thanks for keeping us safe through the weather last night. I ask that you would just guide every step I take and show me the path you have laid out for me. In your name, Amen.

Rain, rain

go away!

I feel like I should be in bed sleeping as dark as it is.

Sadly, that is all I am thinking of today.

Lord, thanks for watering my plants for me today! Help me to not procrastinate this week and get all the things done that I know I should. I love you so much! Amen.

What Can a Teacher Do?

I have four years of college under my belt and a degree to prove it. And what can I do? Teach. After FOUR YEARS I have one option in the job market today, and right now, that is an option I am not in love with.

So, my question is, what else can a teacher do? At first I thought pursuing a different district would be the change I need. But now I am starting to feel as though teaching is just not for me. It is a tough job. I have heard that if I went to another district I may not feel this way, but I hate to pursue another district. For some reason I feel as though I am being sneaky and disloyal. What to do, what to do.

On a happier note, my birthday last night was a blast! I went to eat at Senor Tequila's with a few friends on Brookside. I ran into some old friends from high school, listened to some music, people watched, and ate a yummy meal! And, my friend Michele bought me the yummiest smelling perfume!! My hubby bought me a beautful card and it was an all around good evening.

Lord, thank you for friends and a life group who are willing to share my happy times, but also my trials. Thanks for giving me another day to praise you and share your love with others. Be with Joe today as he works and be with all my friends. Amen.

Lord, I thank you so much for this wonderful, beautiful day! I think you are an awesome God and I just ask that you would keep up this beautiful weather for the rest of the week. I ask that you would just be with all of my friends and their families - keep them safe and well this week. I ask that if there are any needs that Joe and I can service, you would bring them to mind so that we could be good stewards of the things you have placed in our care. I love you so much!!!
