I hope this final blog post of the Fall semester finds you already taking time to enjoy your children being home as the winter break officially begins. I know many of you will be traveling to visit family and friends over these next couple of weeks, so I pray for safety and wonderful times for all of you. If you are staying home, I also pray that your weeks are filled with thankfulness and remembering the good things of the Lord as a family.
We had such a wonderful final week of the semester all together. From final classes to celebrations, remembering the way that God has taught us and lead us this semester to playing and eating together. It was full and we are thankful. It's an incredible gift to receive an education and I am thankful for the opportunity that I have each day to teach your children. As I stood back and watched my class over these past couple of days, I felt a deep sense of belonging coming from each student in the room. They were all happy, engaged with one another and genuinely friends with one another. I watched them take care of each other with the type of love that God calls us to, "As I have loved you, so you must love one another." (John 13:34) I watched as student's set aside their own desires for the benefit of another. I just love them all so much.
Have a wonderful winter break and a wonderful Christmas.
