Rejoice in the Lord always;

again I say,


Phil 4:4

I don’t know about your day-to-day life, but mine has some fairly stressful and difficult moments.  Testing nears at school and all teachers are feeling the anxiety of making sure their students are ready.  Spring sports have begun so after-school planning has become a necessity.  Children’s choices that are out of my control often leave me unable to sleep.  Life is tricky and the devil would love to steal all of my joy.

I cannot let him win.

Greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world..the Bible promises me this!  And it promises you the same thing!

Today, I have to leave early because FCA meets before school.  Today, I have to prepare a whole new set of lesson plans over content that stretches me further than I really wanted to go….algebraic functions.  Today, I have to drive straight from school back to the wound center for hopefully my LAST appointment.  Today, Olivia starts golf and Todd has tennis practice.

I have to leave our home repeating the verse above.  It’s the only way I can cope today.

I love you all and I’m praying that you can repeat with me,  REJOICE IN THE LORD ALWAYS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I love you all so much,
