Wow! What a ride it has been over these past few weeks. School has been going well; however I have had to deal with a few behavior issues. All of the students needed a little "talking to". I think they have gotten really comfortable with one another and there personalities are all so different. So, that it is a good lesson in itself; God makes everyone unique!
I continue to struggle with balance. It is a non-stop struggle with me; placing Bible Study as my top priority so I can walk in the Spirit, making sure that I speak to my husband in his "love language", parent my children in a Godly way, teach them academically, teach my students, check on my parents, pray for and uplift my friends, pray for Riverbend, reach out to the ladies of Riverbend..invest in their lives, housework , ORGANIZATION, ORGANIZATION, laundry, housework, etc...
Mari-Morgan is doing great. In fact, I believe she is not being challenged enough. That is something I need to work on. Nathan loves Snowden; however it has proven to be more difficult than he or I anticipated. He has really struggled with attention/focus and organization...hmmm, I can't imagine where he gets that from. We went and talked to the psychologist for 2 hours. Nathan talked with her alone first and really opened up to her. I was very encouraged because he really shared his fears and concerns with her. Then, she brought us in. We talked and shared together. It was very eye-opening for us as we saw into "his whorl"d like we never have before. This meeting was such a blessing for us. We praise God for Hillary, and her suggesting that he talk with someone to get all his "stuff" out. The counselor gave us suggestions as to how to accommodate at home and for Hillary and the other teachers to implement in the classroom.
We have had revival services this week. God has really shown me some areas that I need to work on. I want to glorify Him in every aspect of my life. Praying and seeking God is both a choice and a necessity. Glory to God!
