Since I posted last evening about the closing of our school, I have received empathy from so many of you. In fact, I've heard from folks I've never heard from before, folks I didn't even know followed my blog, folks I don't even know - live OR virtually.
Let me just say that I am greatly moved by your support. I "felt" your presence go with me as I walked the halls of our school today and as I talked to my students about what lies ahead.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
So many of you asked what I will do next.
THIS is all I know about THAT!
Right now the future beyond June is just a big question mark to me. I don't plan to try to teach anywhere else. I do plan to try to work somewhere at something. We're going to need health insurance. (Maybe you'll walk into a Wal-Mart near you soon to find ME greetin' in the doorway!)
Here's what I DO know:
1) I will be at LCS for the next 11 weeks.
2) I will focus on being the best teacher I can be right to the end.
3) I will keep loving and encouraging my students.
4) I will do my best to model before my students what it means to "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and He will make your paths straight."
Right now the path before my feet, from my human vantage point, looks about as clear as the road signs above. But I BELIEVE what God said when He told us He'd make our paths straight. I believe He will show me the way - - - in HIS time. He's already shown me that my "straight path" right now is to finish strong at LCS.
I'm on it.
I'm working to finish strong.
And after that - - - He's got the whole world in His hands, and that makes my little portion of that world seem pretty insignificant.
Do you think someone will pay me a salary with benefits to blog all day long?????
