In my children's class at church, I'm learning:

1. I am not as young as I was when I first taught children
2. I am not as agile as they are
3. I am not as fast as they are either
4. I can plan lessons 'til the cows come home, but some days they just don't work
5. I can love them anyway and enjoy this time that God has given me with them
6. They are precious, to the Lord and to me!


  1. Sounds like everyone is learning in your class...they are so blessed to have you for a teacher.

  2. I'll probably write a post about this but in my 4 year old class yesterday we strung dried apple slices and had a construction paper heart tied on with the Bible verse. To kind of bring the project together (apples and Valentines and God) We took construction paper hearts with the bible verse, added a brown stem and green leaf and turned it into an apple. The kids thought it was the coolest thing. We talked about every time you eat a slice of an apple this week think about how much God loves you... I guess the point I'm driving home is that I wish I was as amazed with the everyday joys in life....

  3. Thise kids a fortunate to have you as their teacher

  4. I missed my kids yesterday! Tom was on his own in class since we are required to take a 9 week Beta class, after I finish my class then he will start it.
    I agree with everything you said, my friend! Kids are so Amazing!!
