lessons from my students

(this list could go on for a very long time, actually.)

everyone needs to stop and just stare at the blue sky sometimes.
ask questions.
make the people in your life feel like celebrities when you greet them.
fresh air and exercise helps to keep you from going crazy.
rainbows are the coolest things ever.
never be afraid to ask for help.
pray for ants.
it's ok to cry.  loudly.  and then sit for a while - but only as long as you need.  then get up and do the next thing.
always be extra kind to people who've been crying.
mud is good.
real men like flowers.  and killing bad guys, no matter how many zillions of times they're told fighting is not allowed at school.
everyone should appreciate jellyfish.
food is a big deal.
singing louder is always better.
God is the answer to everything.


long-time burden

it’s an unceasing weight
tears bottled up
my unanswered question
broken telephone lines
unresponsive heart
love through a clogged artery
how long, oh Lord?
yearning for it, maybe force it
but it is good that one should hope
and wait quietly for the salvation of the Lord.
patient perseverance,
submission to sovereignty
until we sing again.


it's time for another post...

...But I need a little processing time before I can write something about the things that are in my head right now. 
Thought for the day:  
The Lord works everywhere, all the time.  
Think about it.

Sometimes I am melodramatic... Bear with me. My favorite thing is finding hope in hard places. If you enjoyed something (or not) I would love to hear from you! You can make me very happy by leaving a comment :)
