When I was a child my mind was being trained, my personality developing, my brain expanding, my opinions growing.  With each stage of development something was happening to make me the person I have become.  We all have been affected by teachers who went the extra mile to help that process.

Some of them we remember with fondness. Others we laugh about.  Still others made a lasting imprint on us.  They gave us wisdom and knowledge, but they also inspired us to go beyond our own limits – to stretch ourselves – to believe we could do things we didn’t think we could.

I thank God for the gift of good teachers.  The kind that will spend their own money on special school supplies.  The kind that gives  their own time after school to help a student who is struggling with an assignment.  The kind that stays awake nighst thinking about class activities that will stimulate and interest your child.  The kind that loves your child as much as you do. 

Dear Lord, thank you for the gift of dedicated teachers who put the children in their care first.  They are a blessing to their students.  Continue to help them  nurture our children as they walk through the education process.  Protect them especially in our time as they even face danger caring for these young minds.

About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.
