it is interesting what happens in life. the ebb and flow of time and space, of people and things, of stuff. my garden is blooming and growing despite the heatwave and lack of watering. with that my mind thinks and thinks and thinks. i pray and ask questions. in the last five years what has happened in our life? my life? i try not to think about it sometimes. to look only forward ~ to see the possibilities of change and the hope of being a better person. at times on grey days i feel such a failure. at money, marriage, profession, motherhood. but mostly at serving Christ. how pitiful i am.
i never make new year’s resolutions. ever. but the school year is about to begin. i am trying to think of what can i do better this school year in my job and my personal life.
get all paper work in on time to my boss… or before the due date.
get all papers graded and back to my students in a timely fashion.
pray for every student every day.
try to be more personable to other coworkers (whether i want to or not)
spend more time walking for exercise and quiet.
spend more time reflecting on the Word. then write about it.
be more diligent about the house. ugh.
okay… that’s enough for now. i am reading “Eat Pray Love” which happens to be a movie now. the book so far has been good. and i have work to do for school to get ready. it overwhelms me sometime to think of the responsibility i have to help students learn. whoa.
