Wonders Never Cease

I think it was your prayers.  I had a wonderful, “Yes there is a God and he loves me,” kind of day.  I needed a sub for a 40 minute period to attend a meeting.  Thanks to a timing glitch, I was given a sub for the entire school day!  She and I took turns working with the kids on their poems — with her doing most of the student contact — and I got a truckload of my grading done.  There is still a ways to go, but I can see the end of the tunnel much more clearly, and there is no train!

Thank you!

Happy dance! Happy dance!  Happy dance!

    I am glad you had a good day after all. Of course God loves you and I thank him that you found my blog last July, Yes the anniversary is coming soon. I am going to have to go through the archives to see the actual date. Because of you I have all my wonderful friends who come by to visit.

    You are truly a blessing to have for a friend. I will wish you “Bon Chance” on your move to Hawaii.

    Oh you will be happy to know I’ve applied online to Westjet for a position. I didn’t want to be too greedy and ask for the “President’s Position” just yet.

    Thankyou for your prayers.

  2. Melli — yep.

    Mumma — that’s why I didn’t call the office and ask if they’d made a mistake.

    Bill — you are wekcome for the prayers. Thank you for yours on my behalf. You know, this blogging thing changed my life. I am glad it has brought joy to yours as well. Thank you for giving me the credit of picking up your traffic, but I don’t remember how I found your blog. I am thinking it may have been through Dr. John or one of his folks. My first comment on your blog was July 13th — no I didn’t just remember that. WordPress has a search feature and I looked for your first comment to me (July 14th), then checked the days previous to that on your blog.

  3. Lucky you. Those special smooth days feel so good.

    I see you’ve been having lots of fun while I’ve been away. I missed your birthday. Happy belated. Great poems by your students. I’ll be back later to read your dragon story. And even Jesus lost it on occasion. I’m sure you’ll make up for it.

  4. Nessa — Welcome back! While you were stuck in test mode we all kept marching on. Don’t try too hard to catch up. Just know that it’s nice to see you again.

    OC — I take it that that means that when I bring home stacks of papers to grade, the only help you’re going to offer is sympathy and maybe a cup of tea. :*

  5. Polona — thank you!

    Silverneurotic — kids don’t like subs much, but we teachers pretty much think they are worth their weight in gold!

  6. Sometimes it looks like there is always a train at the end of a tunnel. You and Jared should be happy—–life is changed, all because of a……..sub.
