Hello all!!! I kind of have been missing in action. I have been in my classroom this week attempting to get ready for the start of school. I don't know how much time I will have to create right now, but as the Lord allows I will post what I can.

I do however ask for your prayers. The task before me in my own eyes is so very great but in the Lord's eyes it is a very light load. So I ask that the Lord would continue to go before me and lay out that path that He would have me walk on.

Parents night was Thurs evening and it was so amazing. I felt like crying when all those precious little first graders were sitting before me. What a privilege I have been given, to be able to teach these children and open their eyes to the wonders of God's Word.

It was pretty funny, I spent a lot of time worrying about what the parents might ask that night and I prayed that the Lord would go before me and give me wisdom. However the one question I didn't have an answer to, came from one of the students. He wanted to know where his backpack was going to go. Being that we are not equipped with cubbies or hooks or anything of the sort, I never even thought about it. Praise God the vice principal was there to supply the answer because this was important to this little one. It was so sweet because it was a reminder for me to always keep in mind what's important to these little ones.

So I pray that you all have a blessed week and when I can I will post some pics of our classroom. It is still in the making but I know it will be all that God wants it to be in His perfect timing. So remember, if you are facing a task that seems bigger than you remember these words " Not by power, not my might but by my spirit says the Lord".

Hugs and kisses,

first, how are things going with your voice? and ... be not afraid, because God is with you, and He promised to give you all that you need to accomplish the task set before you. He has a purpose for you there, so He will provide. Hang in there, and keep on in Joy, Hope, and Faith, and may God's wisdom and grace guard your way. have a great day.
