where the wild things are

"And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work." 2 Corinthians 9:8

Was she serious?? The last week of school is FILLED with special activities and programs. To settle students in the library, Ms. Berrie pulled a video to watch. The title could not have been more ironic or true. To most, Where the Wild Things Are represents a book; for teachers at year and wits end, it represents their class. Wild, antsy, and ready to go… they long to spread their toes into the summer season. Have they finished all their work and ready for the next grade? Teachers taught the necessary components, but the final result rests on the student’s commitment.

As we teach, remember we also are being taught.  Our Teacher provides us daily lessons and opportunities on exhibiting the fruit of the Spirit... love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.  And then there’s the daily test on love…. loving God with all our heart, mind and soul; as well as, loving our neighbor as ourselves.  

Lord, i don't want to be a wild thing in Your eyes.  Help keep my focus and heart on You as the seasons of my life turn. Give me the strength to handle the wild things this week at school while not turning into one; i want to do abound in every good work.

have a peace-filled day!
