Whoa, Has It Been THAT Long?

So sorry for the absence! I've been trying to get ready for the new school year, and I haven't slowed down these last several weeks. I can't even think creatively when I'm stressed as I have been. That's ok, though, because I turned it over to God this morning. Yes, you would think that was the first thing I did... but, oh no, I've hung on to it for awhile now trying to do things my own way. When will I learn?????
For your thoughts today-

Joshua 23:14 "Behold, this day I am going the way of the earth. And you know in all your hearts and in all your souls that not one thing has failed of all the good things which the Lord your God spoke concerning you. All have come to pass for you; not one word of them has failed."
Yep, God always takes care of me!

Back to Work!

Well, it's quiet around here. The grandkids left Sunday afternoon. I loved the week with them, but, boy, was I tired!

It's been a busy week for me, which has cut into my posting. I get so spoiled over the summer while school is out. I pretend I'm independently wealthy (hehe), and I don't have to work - just enjoy creating, grandkids, longhorns, and being outside in the summer sun.

Then.... SMACK... reality hits, and it's time to go back to work! I do love teaching, but it's hard to get back in the swing every fall. I've worked in my room this week, and I really haven't done anything that will be seen by the kids. I'm a sicko organizer and can't function unless everything is in order, so I've been emptying drawers, cleaning out cabinets, etc. Now I just need some magic dust to sprinkle around to jazz up the room. For some reason, I'm running low on magic dust this year. I haven't come up with anything special for the room. It needs a new look, but I can't seem to find one, yet. But, the Lord willin', and the creek don't rise, I'll get 'er done.

Matthew 5:16 "Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in Heaven."
