The Bible says that God's goodness to us is new every morning (Lamentations 3:23). That's a promise that makes life more than livable.
I was exhausted when I returned home Tuesday evening after a day at school and a meeting at the University. I crawled into bed at quarter to eight. I couldn't allow myself to dwell on lesson plans and unit plan and substitute teaching paperwork--everything seemed impossible. But Wednesday morning when I pushed back the bedcovers, I rejoiced in a new day. I'm a morning person. After a restful night I can believe that the previous night's daunting tasks are conquerable.
My expectations were met--I had a good day Wednesday.
- I taught about circumference and area of circles and the students were surprisingly quiet, attentive and cooperative
- My University supervisor stopped by the school to meet my host teachers
- I was asked to take photos of students and tutors in the after-school study program (That may seem like a small thing, but for someone who is in the midst of photography withdrawal, it's noteworthy)
