Future and a Hope

Jeremiah 29:11
For I know the plans I have for you,” says the LORD. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.

I am sorry today is so short and sweet, but my teaching life got in the way.  I had parent/teacher conferences which means 12 hours at work drive home and be back in less than 12 hours.  YUCK!

The glory spot of my night was two families that I have been with their children for three years.  The boys have grown into some pretty awesome young men.  It is always funny to see them come in as Freshmen and watch them grow up before your very eyes.

Anyways, these families make me feel like I can walk on water.  They always have.  Tonite was different though.  One of the dads looked at the other teachers and told them, I was more than a teacher, I was family.  The other dad from the other family looked up and said they would have never made it through high school without me.  I have been their lifeline.

I am not trying to pat myself on the back here.  I was speechless and teary-eyed.  With the ins and outs of everyday life as a teacher, you often wonder if you are really touching anyone’s life.  Then a parent comes to you and says something like this.  For a moment you realize your life does have purpose.

Thank you, Lord, for letting me have glimpses into the good I have done.  Thank you for having a plan for me.  A plan to prosper me.  Please continue to use me to bring a little light into my students’ and their families’ lives.
