For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when I am weak, then I am strong." ~ 2 Corinthians 12:9-10.

  1. I love that you just speak the truth. You certainly don't blog for the public...it's too close to the heart. That's what I love about it. Sometimes the best reason to blog is that it just comes out better on paper/screen.

  2. What a nice idea. As a teacher I have never gotten such a thing and I know your child's teacher will be very touched. Teachers usually get most supplies needed or will buy them or have specific things in mind that may be hard to know. If there are elem. age kids then crayons, coloured pencils, erasers, pencils, little sharpeners, prizes for the kids such as stickers or other little things are always needed and used
