Back to school....back to school....

Alright, my Christmas break is over. I had a total of 3 days where I was able to rest in the afternoon and do nothing. Not too bad.....break was busy...

I am hesitant to go back to school today. I love my students, I love teaching, but I am exhausted so quickly, I ache, and my feet have been swollen quite a bit and i haven't even been on them as much as I will be this coming week.

I am in the home stretch now where there are about 50 more school days left of me teaching....crazy.....50 more days of me doing what I love doing.

Going back to school today I have in then next 50 days:
* 2 more report cards to fill out
* 1 more midterm
* Speech meet
* New Bible lessons
* Huge English report to help the kids write
* At least two more novel studies
* Help the kids master all their multiplication facts 1-12
* That is just a few of the things that need to be done, but most of all I want to have fun, interact and enjoy this kids....

I don't want the pregnancy and the last three months to get in the way of me enjoying my job. Lord give me strength at work when I feel like I have nothing left in me. Lord overflow in me so that my kids can see your love and tenderness. I pray that when I want to give up, quit, and feel unmotivated you would remind me of my calling and what a huge honor it truly is. Let all that I say and do in the next 3 months at CCS be you showing through me. Change my attitude and my heart so that I may be an example to the parents, staff, and children all around me. Use me in the next 50 days in a way that I couldn't ever imagine be used.

Sharon you have an amazing heart for God! He will honor your heart for him!! I believe these last 50 days of you teaching are going to be days full of blessing and joy!!

And then comes the biggest blessing of all...your new precious baby! I can't wait to meet him/her!
