Planting seeds

"Each one should use whatever gift they have received to serve others, faithfully administering God's grace in its various forms." 1 Peter 4:10

I love surprises.  And like most events, our Book Fair provides its share. One of my favorites (thanks to donors) is seeing the thrill of students with financial hardships, "win" a book from Book Fair. 

Mrs. Hart submitted the names of her students she considered needing a book.  But instead of her students, she was the one getting the biggest surprise.  When she checked her teacher gift bag, she discovered gifts from a student on her needs-to-be-a-winner list.  He gave her not one, not two, but three books.  In the eyes of the giver, both were winners.

No doubt Mrs. Hart has planted mighty seeds of hope and inspiration for a child in need. 

Teachers, you make a great impact on your students.  Sometimes the affect is immediate, and sometimes it's a seed planted which flourishes and blooms later.

Keep teaching, keep watering and keep remembering you make a difference. Thank you.

Give and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap.

friend, you are loved and chosen by God,
