Week Two

Week Two of kindergarten begins tomorrow.

It’s humbling, I’ll tell you, to be a full-time teacher.

Especially when I’ve not yet even walked the Moody Church stage in cap and gown,

not yet even received my diploma.

And I’m there in the classroom, with the reading center

and the four low tables

and the rug with the fish, where we sit in front of the board,

and talk about adding 10 to a number,

and learn new vowel teams and sight words.

It’s humbling because there is someone there, an aide,

whose job it is to help me do my job,

and I’m so grateful for the support.

It’s most humbling, though, because I got here,

but really, I’ve been put here, placed here on purpose,

by the Lord.

And it’s His strength, His mercy, His patience, that keeps me here,

and keeps me loving and giving and working and serving.

And that is a humbling thing to be a part of.

    Jeremiah 29:11–God’s got the plan for you and your kids! I know that He has put you just where He wants you. Lean on Him and your aide! :)

    Math and reading? That’s a lot more than I had in kindergarten a hundred years ago.
