So I've been praying for my son's 1st grade teacher since we graduated from kindergarten. Thankfully not too much fretting, but off/on praying. I know that's what I'm supposed to do when I get worried - admit my worry, acknowledge God's hugeness, ask him to provide, and ask him to work in my heart.
Tonight I'm singing praises. I met my son's new teacher at Parent's Night tonight, and she seems great. A 19-year veteran teacher with passion for education and warmth for people. Very organized, yet welcoming.
We already know about 30% of the kids in his class, and they're great! There will be a LOT of energy in the little classroom, but many loving families.
So I'll say it outloud - PRAISE GOD for providing for my little boy. And now I'll transition my prayers to strength, wisdom and compassion for his loving teacher. And for the children, I'll pray for healthy development, lots of learning, and good relationships.
