My Last Day at School

I wondered how I would tell my kids at school that it would be my last week with them. I wondered how it would be the last day when I had to say goodbye. I wondered, and I prayed, and God gave me the strength, and the words, and the peace to make it through.

I could not have asked for a better week. I wasn't sure how I would do it without crying! But when it came down to it, I was amazed at how well it all went (thank you prayer warriors!) Of course we are excited about the next step, but I always get attached easily. I've heard their stories, and it was hard to say goodbye to such a great group of kids. And although I only knew them for a short while, I will always remember the love they showed me on Friday.

I'm very thankful that God provided a new teacher in my place, one that loves Him, one that I know will love those kids. As I was praying this summer for her, she was also praying for a job in teaching. I could not have asked for more. I sit amazed once again at the work of an almighty God. A God that has a plan far better than we could have ever imagined for ourselves. A plan to prosper us, not to harm us. A plan to give us a hope and a future. Jeremiah 3:5-6
