A message from an old friend; getting the Christmas decorations put away; receiving a little bracelet I’d ordered for myself to remind myself to breathe; my sons getting bills paid, classes in order, and settled into their routines….all this brought me joy today. Yet, the greatest joy I had today was teaching.
It was the first day of my courses today, since weather cancelled them Tuesday. It was so good to be back in the classroom, to meet new students, and to feel comfortable with the material, excited to share it with my class. I feel more alive when I’m teaching, more like I’m fulfilling my purpose and calling.
God has been gracious to give me opportunities to teach these last fifteen years. I’m praying that He will continue to make a way for me to be able to teach as a profession, in one form or another.
