Every year around this time people begin to make resolutions and set new goals for the new year ahead. Take a moment and appreciate today and just simply remember that no matter the size of your dreams… they can and will be accomplished with faith! Have a great month and I hope you enjoy and are inspired after reading the Poem of the Month “Faith & Dreams”.

“Faith & Dreams”

It’s trusting and believing in God’s heart and His Power,
The battle is won, and He will come, but we don’t know the hour.
Faith is the substance of things hoped for and evidence of the unseen,
This sounds a lot like goals and dreams.

The Holy Spirit takes over and it makes me brave,
I repent and gain strength every time I pray.
I let God drive and though I have no idea where He’s taking me,
I trust Him with my faith and dreams.

    It’s so good to hear from you!! Being a teacher or any title we get or job that we do in life is a stage given by God. What we do with that stage good or bad is on us. I strive to do good and plant good seeds and watch them grow:). I miss you girls too and I want you to keep doing your best in every aspect of life. You are the brightest of lights so just continue to shine and light the way for your classmates and teammates. God bless and Happy Holiday’s!
