New years eve

Where does the time go?

New years eve!


Happy new years eve!


I can hardly believe that I have only posted 90 times since 2011 began. 2011 was very busy for me finishing up my first full time year of teaching and then Carole getting married I guess it was just too much going on to blog. :)

I love my blog.

It's great to have a blog to post things on.

I always feel bad at how little I post.

I really am going to try harder this upcoming year to post more.

To show all of you that I am still a blogger.


Friday, December 30, 2011 a time for joy

I just love this season...

Christmas break

By October I usually start thinking about Thanksgiving and Christmas break. Being a teacher you need to have a break. If you don't you will catch yourself drinking out of juice boxes and having to run to the bathroom. Another words if there were no break teachers would start acting like students.

So Thanksgiving break was wonderful plans were changed and so instead of spending half the week at my Mimis I had the whole week with my Jeremy.

But then Christmas break rolled around and I spent half the week with my Jeremy and family and the rest I stayed with my Mimi. I went down to the city with a few of my friends and then stayed with Mimi. We have been having a wonderful time.

Now the rest of the family are coming down today and we are going to have Christmas all over again. That is always fun.

Well, I just wanted to stop by and say hi!

Do you have Christmas break? Do tell...

Thank you Lord

Thank you Lord for your blessings on me.

There is a roof up above me I have good place to sleep there is food on my table and shoes on my feet you gave me your love Lord and a fine family thank you Lord for your blessings on me.

How are your mornings? Are you complaining when you should be rejoicing?

How about your evenings are you fretting when you should be praying?

I know I have been guilty so many times over.

I just take the blessings for granted and not praise when I should be praising but instead have an ungrateful heart.

I try to teach my students to be thankful for everything not take anything for granted and always gives praise to the Lord.

What about the teacher? I sound real good sitting on the stool with my Bible in front of me but am I practicing what I am teaching.

Sadly not always.

I was listening to this song tonight and the words flowed through my heart and my family appeared in my mind, my bed my two rooms my home, my school, my students,my church, my Jeremy, my things, and I have so many things that I take for granted. So many.

I know I'm not wealthy.
These clothes are not new.
I don't have much money but Lord I have you.

We have so much, the Lord gives us so much.

And thats all that matter although the world may not see
Thank you Lord for your blessings on me.

The Reason for The Season

This is my bulletin bored at school.

Tuesday, December 13, 2011


The sound of the scissors cutting the wrapping paper.

The sight of the lights twinkling on tree.

The delight in Jeremy's eyes as he fingers an ornament.

Makes my heart feel heavy with Joy.

Listening to my students practice their program hearing the truth of the night Jesus was born echoing through the room.

Fills my heart with content.

I just love this season.

Where hot chocolate is a must and the more junk goodies in the mug the better.

I have always enjoyed this time of year.

How about you?

19 days before Christmas

I love this holiday, I love this day, I love the meaning. That Jesus came as a babe. He came to save me and He came to save you.

Let's not forget the true meaning.

Away in a manger,No crib for His bed
The little Lord Jesus, Laid down His sweet head
The stars in the bright sky,Looked down where He lay
The little Lord Jesus,Asleep on the hay

The cattle are lowing,The poor Baby wakes
But little Lord Jesus, No crying He makes
I love Thee, Lord Jesus, Look down from the sky
And stay by my side, 'Til morning is nigh.

Be near me, Lord Jesus, I ask Thee to stay
Close by me forever, And love me I pray
Bless all the dear children, In Thy tender care
And take us to heaven, To live with Thee there
