My.....But You

Dear Heavenly Father,

My brain is so full,

My heart so heavy,

My body so tired,

My will, stretched thin.

But You (God) are my Rescue,

My Comfort and Refuge,

I run to Your arms now,

Revive me within.

Are you just a mist or will your presence for the Lord be missed?

Psalm 39: 4-7 reads:

Lord, make me to know my end,
And what is the measure of my days,
That I may know how frail I am.
Indeed, You have made my days as handbreadths,
And my age is as nothing before You;
Certainly every man at his best state is but vapor. Selah
Surely every man walks about like a shadow;
Surely they busy themselves in vain;
He heaps up riches,
And does not know who will gather them.
And now, Lord, what do I wait for?
My hope is in You.”


Vapor and Dust

Life is just a dash

Carved out in a stone.

You only live once, they say,

And every man dies alone.

I am a vapor,

Just dust in the wind,

Here for a moment

And gone again.

What will I live for?

How much will I give?

Who am I representing?

Is it for Christ that I live?

I only have this moment,

I can’t take back the past.

Lord, help me abide in You today,

For only what’s done for You will last.

Until next time,

In Christ,

Teaching is Entertaining

So believe it or not, my job as a teacher is quite entertaining. As a diagnostic for my U.S. History class, I gave my students a selection of questions from the U.S. Citizenship Test. Here were some of the most memorable wrong/funny answers.

Q: “What is the supreme law of the land?” (Constitution)
Students Answer: “YOLO”= You Only Live Once

Q: “Who was the first President?”
A: “George Bush.”

Q: “What is the capital of your state?”
A: “Claremont.”

Q: “What is the supreme law of the land?”
A: “Live free or die.”

Q: “Name one state that borders Canada.”
A: “Minnesota, don’t ya know?”

Q: “Where is the Statue of Liberty?”
A: Easter Island.
