II Chronicles 7:14

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

One of my hats

Of all the many "hats" that I wear--here is one you don't get to see very often--my "teacher hat." Our church photographer came through a couple of weeks ago and took some shots of me teaching the 4-year-old class to use in the slideshow at our volunteer banquet. He e-mailed me the pics so I thought I'd share one with you since it happened to have me AND Grant in it! This is one of the ways I give to the Lord and have really found a piece of me that has been "closed" for a long time. I always wanted to be a teacher all during my childhood and even into adulthood. When I went to college, I knew for sure I was going into Elementary Education....but....I fell in love and quit after just 1 year...so no teaching degree for me. Being a teacher at church is the best of both worlds because I get to not only teach them...but teach them the Word of God! Plus, I've discovered that I probably wouldn't have made a very great teacher after all. I do a good job in my class at church...but now I can't IMAGINE doing that every day for 8 hours a day! I'm exhausted after just a few hours at church!! As the song goes...some of God's greatest gifts are unanswered prayers!
