what is that i hear?

“Because of the LORD’s great love we are not consumed, for His compassions never fail.  They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness.” Lamentations 3:22-23

The silence upon entering the school was eerie.  No students, few lights and no noise.  Today is a teacher’s work day, and the silence was deafening.  I soon found myself longing for the usual pitter-patter of students’ feet, for smiling faces and for the surprising, chattering of tales students do tell.  But today is a day of rest from the usual routine. 

May there be one routine we continue just the same… the one of gratitude.  Let us give thanks to God for our blessings and for His  relentless working in our lives.  His job never changes and neither does His love for us.  THANK YOU, FATHER!!

Have a rest-filled day!  in Him
