No, I am not talking about a new boy band! God blessed the West Valley with beautiful weather this past week; as I left my house at 6AM on Wednesday morning it was 68 degrees. Can you believe that? Man, I love it when the mornings are finally cool...can anyone say sweater weather? Not yet anyway:)
I just completed my seventh week of teaching--that means it has been seven weeks since my last entry. So much has happened--teaching is definitely the hardest thing that I have ever done. I don't think I have ever experienced so many ups and downs emotionally as I have over the past seven weeks. God is good though because through it all He has given me a heart for this age group and each of the students that I have been entrusted with. I trust Him to bring me through it and teach me in it all.
I am enjoying the church that I have been attending (you can view the website at http://www.wayofgracechurch.com/). Our weekly home groups start this week and I am very much looking forward to getting to other church members on a more personal level. I am very hungry for fellowship! Please pray for me as I look into ministry opportunities at church: nursery, greeting, set-up, break down, etc.
I finally invested an afternoon into working on stuff around my house this past weekend. My project list is growing as I get more ideas for decorating and moving furniture. I need to plant rye grass in my backyard so I can have a green lawn this winter but at the rate I have been working it is looking highly doubtful that I will get that accomplished. My good friend, Todd Rovey, has kind of volunteered for the job...maybe I will make him dinner in return!
Fall Break is in two weeks--please pray for continued consistency and persistence in teaching as I wrap this quarter up. Also, please pray for me that I might want to want God and that I would be more focused on Him and consumed by Him than I am by work.
