Things my students say to me…

“How much money your shoes?”

“You are no 100 old.”

“Teacher! You are so beautiful!” (whispered in my ear)

“Sooooooo yummy!”

“I like to eat pizza.”

“Teacher, your nose is so big and has freckles!”

“I am monkey.” (yes, you can climb like one!)

“It’s wonderful!”

“Your hair is brown, teacher!  And wavy!  I want to touch!” (and so many hands appear)

“I love you!”

March will be here soon and I’m just now posting about 2012.  I suppose “better late than never” still rings true!

Here are my special 2012 details…

Word:  Eternity

Why Eternity?  Because I’ve been realizing recently that all too often I focus on myself – my needs, hopes, problems – instead of the bigger picture.  I don’t think, “Will this matter in eternity?” often enough.  And God has been showing me that’s very important, so He gave me this word for this year.

Verse: And He was saying to them all, “If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself, and take up his cross daily and follow Me.” ~ Luke 9:23 

Quote:  What would Jesus do?  (WWJD?)

This quote goes right along with Eternity, because Jesus would naturally do things that matter for forever. 

I want to be more like Him.

Let the cross be our glory and the Lord be our song!
By mercy made holy, by the Spirit made strong.
 Till the likeness of Jesus be through us made known. 

Let it be said of us, we were marked by forgiveness;
We were known by our love and delighted in mercy;
We were ruled by His peace, heeding unity’s call,
Joined as one body that Christ would be seen by all.


Let it be said of us that the Lord was our passion,
That with gladness we bore every cross we were given;
That we fought the good fight, and we finished the course;
Knowing within us the power of the risen Lord.
~ Let It Be Said of Us by Steve Fry

O come all ye faithful
Joyful and triumphant,
O come ye, O come ye to Bethlehem.
Come and behold Him,
Born the King of Angels;
O come, let us adore Him!

Merry Christmas!  May joy from having Jesus as Savior fill your day!  Hallelujah!
