I was standing in front of about 40 or 50 children on Monday. Eyes shinning bright eager to sing praises to the Lord. As I began to lead them in song I could hear the excitement in their voice. I suddenly came to the realisation that to them it was all about singing praises not how good or how bad they sang. Not one child poked fun if someone made a mistake. Instead they smiled, laughed and opened their hearts to one another. This alone is enough to bring tears to my eyes. On Tuesday I was brave and took my first graders on a field trip that ended with lunch at McDonald's. Before we ate we joined our voices in song to thank the Lord for our many blessings. One lady who was enjoying her lunch spoke to many of the children thanking them for blessing her with they musical prayer. I pray that my students will continue to share this joy with everyone they meet. I know that this is where the Lord has calld me and I am ever greatful.

As you can see I have a beautiful cross collection that seems to grow each year thanks to my parents, sister and students. I enjoy looking at them and because of their location I Get to view them often. The large cross in the center was made for me a Pastor when I became a Lutheran Teacher.
