Preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage—with great patience and careful instruction." 2 Timothy 4:2
Thanks to social media, it was easy keeping up with friends, family and coworkers. I saw many pictures at the beach, by the pool, at the lake and in the mountains. There were birthday and anniversary celebrations, visits with family and reunions with friends, trips to the zoo and much more. Truly summer provided fun, joy, laughter and memorable times for many.
Not as obvious was all the time spent by teachers on school preparations. I don't recall these on-goings mentioned, shared and tweeted. Teachers loved their down time this summer, but they still spent a tremendous amount of time thinking, researching, studying and preparing for their students arrival.
And by the smiles and twinkling eyes i spotted in the hallways, there's no question all the preparations paid off. Well done, teachers, you hit the floor running... but actually you never really stopped. Thank you for your faithfulness and perseverance in all seasons. You are changing the world. You are the best.
friend, we are loved and chosen by God,
