I really think all of us need to find some time over the summer to just rest. The Lord took a break after He created the universe! Now, I am not saying that we are doing anything that difficult, but we should follow His example. Jesus even modeled this for us. There are just times when you need to take a break, take time for reflection, then you will find yourself refreshed.
The pressure to pull off high test scores, trying to motivate unmotivated students, and the ever changing world we live in can leave us drained. Give yourself some time this summer. Then, reflect on what went right this past school year and what went wrong. Then look for solutions!!!
I have given myself a few days, so now it is time to get the house in order. Whew!!! I will be researching and sharing what I find in the coming weeks. I am also going to be teaching my daughter to sew. I am sew excited. I am also learning to can which is something I have always wanted to do. I started at the cabin.
|My very first canning project. Tomatoes. Macaroni and tomatoes are my comfort food.|
August will be here before we know it. Find some time to renew your mind and body. Find those projects and reflect on what works and what doesn't. Have a great one!!!
