So Blessed!

Right now,  I am on such a mountain.  Everything is going so great in my life.  I know I need  to enjoy it because it won't last.  That's life.  We have mountains and unfortunately, valleys.  This past Sunday, Corbin got saved!  Praise the Lord.  We were sitting in the night service listening to the preacher preach.  I looked at Corbin, and he was crying. I asked him what was wrong.  He said, "I don't want to go to Hell."  I said remember you got saved at age 5 so you won't.  Corbin said I didn't really understand what that meant until now. 

So I told him how to get saved.  He had to admit he was a sinner.  He had to believe that Jesus died on the cross and rose in three days.  Jesus is still living right now.  He had to ask Jesus to come into his heart.  He bowed his head and prayed. 

I asked him a few minutes later if he was okay. He was smiling.  I asked him why he was so happy, and he replied, " I just got saved."   I can't think of anything better than leading your own child to the Lord.

Last year, we all had such a hard year.  Eric was traveling a lot.  Corbin started 4th grade, and it was very tough.  I had a rough 8th grade group and administration that was not helpful.  I thought about leaving the teaching profession. Eric was so supportive during this time.  But I prayed and prayed.  I asked God to show me if I was still needed in the teaching profession.

I got an interview and transferred to another school in the county.  It is much smaller than my previous school. My new principal is wonderful.  She treats us with utmost respect. The kids I teach now don't have as much as the kids from my former school.   And that's okay.  They listen to me.  They work hard on their assignments.  I just love them!

My new principal tells me almost every day how lucky they are that I am there.  But I think I am the lucky one!

What wonderful news! Praise the Lord! (I'm sorry I'm just now seeing this, I've been a slacker reading blogs lately since school started.)
