Did you find one today? Did you find a joyful moment? One of mine was getting to sleep in!! We had a delay because of the ice. Definitely thankful for some extra sleep:) Of course, it was a Monday AND we had a delay, so that caused some of my autistic students to have a hard time getting settled. Although I was definitely exhausted by the end of the day, I could also see God’s hand at work. In the middle of those meltdowns, one of the students asked for help in a way that we’d practiced over and over! Yay for first times! Another student excitedly shared how he had practiced and practiced a concept until he got it. The smile on his face was contagious. (The best part was that he did it last night-a weekend, no less!!)
The beginning of my day didn’t start well, but a Christian friend who “happens” to be subbing in our building reminded me that “love is a choice” and that maybe we just need to move on from the hard situation. Hmmmm….funny that one of my coworkers, who is NOT a believer had basically said that same thing last week about another situation. Maybe God is trying to tell me something:). Grateful for reminders that I’m not just here to teach but to share God’s love with those around me. Where did you find your joyful moment?
