When I get to Heaven...

Ugh! How do you do it? Cook...Clean...Teach...Parent...AND blog?! I'm feeling like a failure on all counts! Here is a comment that made me feel like a winner this week...

I got to share a special double rainbow with a student before school started this week!

Is that not awesome? I feel so blessed to have students who want to spend eternity with me! As I continued to circulate around the room listening to happy children's voices I was  overwhelmed by the love and simple trusting faith of children. I feel humbled and thankful that I have been able to nurture not just the 3 Rs in my student's daily life but also the faith that will one day bring us all back together to spend eternity with our friend and Savior, Jesus. Teaching in a parochial school may not always be financially rewarding, but when you get a chance to help mold souls for eternity the earthly rewards are suddenly not so important!

Would you like some  earthly rewards today? Come on over to my Facebook page and join the Frenzy. Amazing teacher authors have created fun fall activities just for YOU! Look for the Frenzy tab on the top of my Facebook page and follow along to get some great freebies!

  2. So beautiful! That is the one thing I wish I could tell my students. That even when things don't seem to be going so right, Jesus loves them and is always with them. How wonderful that you are able to mold and shape and instill that message in your students.
    Thanks for the inspiring words!

  3. Teaching in that setting would definitely bring blessings that I don't have the privilege of experiencing in a public school. Glad you are able to enjoy those blessings!
