I'm learning that life is daily. It sounds obvious, but some days, that fact is a blessing. Some days, the dailiness of life is a curse. But each day, I am allowed to and required to...
serve my students.
give them opportunities to become who they are designed to be.
give them various chances to find what they enjoy.
unceasing, unrelenting questions.
point them to the Comforter when they are upset.
calm their fears when they are anxious.
encourage them to do their best.
pray with them.
pray over them.
show them what it means to focus on others.
give them time and prodding to reach out to others.
laugh at their jokes.
redirect their wandering minds and hearts.
be an example of focus on the important things.
encourage them to be organized so they can be productive.
smile at them for no reason.
and show them that they are cherished.
Fellow teachers, I hope this can be a practical encouragement as you impact the kids in your class. :)
