It's all good! - Will Work for Jesus MONDAYS

Will Work for Jesus Mondays
Colossians 3:23-24 Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward.
It is the Lord Christ you are serving.

It was a great day!  I spent a lot of time this morning repeating the Colossians 3:23-24 verse before walking into the high school where I work because on Saturday we used the whole school to host a speech and debate tournament, and I dreaded the complaints I was sure would overwhelm me upon entering the building.

We had over 200 students and 80 adults from 20 different high schools in the state at our school!  When we did this last year, I got yelled at by the home ec teacher for a messy room, pulled out of my class by administration for graffiti on the back of the building, and got countless nasty e-mails about how the garbage in the rooms hadn't been emptied.

However this Monday after the tournament, I had only one mad teacher and a few tiny concerns.  Other than that, everyone was very nice!  And to make Monday even better, the profit for our team from this tournament should be over $3,000.00!!!!  I'm a happy coach!

I can't testify enough about how awesome it is to feel great again about walking into work!  And I know it's all because of the time I spend meditating on the verse from Colossians.  It helps me to put EVERYTHING into perspective - what I'm teaching, how much I'm getting (or not) graded, my responsibilities to the speech team, my relationships with my co-workers.  I would highly suggest trying out a few Will Work For Jesus MONDAYS!

And yet, I miss you so much Angel Baby!  I have those quiet moments where I wish I was half way through a pregnancy and going to have you in my arms soon.  I know you are perfectly happy in the arms of our savior; however, I can't help but be selfish and want you here with us.  I can't help but want your sister to be excited that you'll be out of my tummy - for daddy to hold you - for me to love and adore you.   YOU ARE GREATLY MISSED! 
~ love your momma
