Day 37 - Intentional Goodness in the Classroom

On the weekend during Lent, there is only one suggestion of intentional goodness and it will always focus us towards our families. Educators’ lives are so different than other jobs because our work often follows us home. This weekend, let’s make an effort to be intentional about our goodness at home where it is most important.

A verse to ponder
Psalm 136: 24-26 - He remembered us in our low estate. 
His love endures forever and freed us from our enemies.
 His love endures forever. He gives food to every creature. His love endures forever. Give thanks to the God of heaven.
His love endures forever.

An intentional blessing for the classroom (family)
Some of us had Friday off, some have Monday off and some have Friday AND Monday. No matter what the gift of rest you have received, please rest and love on your family. This weekend go out of your way to prepare a special meal that is a family favorite. Consider a meal that could be shared. While you have them gathered around the table, give thanks to the God Whose love endures forever and provides all things.

A focus of reflection
How good are you at turning off all the demands of busyness in your life? Have you ever tried to just rest in Him on the weekend? He has built that need in us in the commandments as He has hallowed the Sabbath for a day of rest. Consider your weekends and think about the blessings of rest and worship. What can we do to increase our time with Him and decrease our time on things that don’t really matter in eternity?

Day 38

(Jack was the first person I saw, so I gave him a gift card for the movies. Don't be too impressed, it was a card I already had, but making it just his was pretty cool.)

As always, I am
Prayerfully dependent,
