Today is the first day of class! I'm in the teacher's lounge (where Facebook isn't blocked) waiting for 3rd period, when my classes begin. Our classroom is Katie-tized:) It was previously a spare room, so it was swarming with mosquitoes and junky old posterboards from projects past. Nothing on the walls. Now I like it very much:) I've always thought if I were a teacher I'd make an inspiration board of interesting articles, images, beautiful things, and other bits of learning. Luckily my classroom (and Ben's- we're sharing) has a giant spare bulletin board..... Will it look like this? In my dreams...
Keas writes a fantastic blog, and his latest entry contains a marvellous thought. He's discussing how Christmas is about God dropping "a bomb in the form of a baby", and the second verse of "O Night Divine":
We’ve now come to the last bit of the song where it speaks of “sweet hymns of joy” and praise. We’re reminded that this is indeed a joyful task we’ve been called to. And that’s why I’ve given my whole life to it. There’s nothing in all the world I would rather do than be a part of God bringing his kingdom on earth as it is in heaven. Everything else just seems boring in comparison.
