…..What a good reminder for an otherwise tired, mundane, unwelcome Monday. ….I belong to God because He is my creator. I am redeemed – created
This week in my fifth grade class we are reading “This I Believe: Free Hearts and Minds at Work”, a radio talk by Jackie Robinson.
“Look Miss W. I put the encouragement up on the board so that everyone would know to do their best job today.” -G, 5th grade
Sometimes, in the midst of the hurry, the pressures, and worries of this time in the semester, I forget that those things are not the sum of my life, or even the sum of my present circumstances. I have to stop and remind myself that this person’s approval may be pressing, that activity may be urgent, this work may be threatening to consume my time, but that is not all of my reality. The tyranny of the urgent will always be there, but there is always more.
To the teachers not yet on Spring Break: stay strong. And just laugh. When appropriate.
