I haven’t done a post from the Teacher’s Desk lately because, um, I’ve been busy teaching.
Today’s topic is strictly personal
and probably won’t offer any great advice
for helping your child this school year.
Instead, today I just want to ask you to pray
for the many school systems like ours,
where huge budget cuts
are forcing uncomfortable choices
with far-reaching ramifications for students and teachers.
Last week, my mother sent me a card
with a list of scriptures,
words of hope, peace, and security in the sovereignty of God.
men can manipulate their little hearts out
and not thwart the plan of the Lord.
Tonight, I chose not to attend an open board meeting
where all the changes were being discussed.
I came home to my teacup
and simmering pot of chicken chili
and decided I’d just discuss things
with my Father.
23 The LORD makes firm the steps
of the one who delights in him;
24 though he may stumble, he will not fall,
for the LORD upholds him with his hand.
