My Grace is sufficient for you. 2 Corinthians 12:9
Teaching during a pandemic...making sense of the political aftermath of the election...preparing for teacher conferences on a computer screen...keeping track of which kids are in quarantine and which ones are just out for a day...writing deadlines...report cards...lesson planning...voicemails...emails...cancelled and rescheduled speaking jobs...one persons virus fear and panic vs another's disregard...IT'S All GETTING A LITTLE HEAVY!
I'm feeling a little like I've run out of words and gas in my tank and at the end of the day I feel like there was more that didn't get done than did. There is a list of things I look back on and wish I had spent more time on or done differently. Last night all the kids were over for Sunday supper and when they left, I immediately zipped into high gear to finish getting ready for the week and write this mornings blog and I realized I had nothing left so I decided to just call it quits for the day. I instantly began feeling guilty about all the things that still didn't get finished after a weekend off school...I should have pushed harder, I should have stayed up later and as the tears started to roll down my cheek I remembered this verse.
He is enough! His love is enough! His peace is enough! His GRACE is everything. I think the Holy Spirit popped this little line into my head to remind me that I'm not in charge of anything...I'm not responsible for being perfect...these are crazy days and I can't trudge through them like nothing is different. I am reminded I need to lean a little harder on him. So for today...what I've done is enough. Maybe you needed this little reminder today too. The world is nuts...but we are enough. We are enough because we are his.
Blessings on your day!

Sherri we are all in this together and you should not be so hard on yourself. You're an inspiration to all who know and love and respect you and yes we just need not be so hard on ourselves and let go and let God. I do not believe there is one soul in your life that expects any more than what you're already giving them. Psalm 46:10. Be still and know that I am God. God bless you with HIS peace.

I think everybody would understand if you just took a couple of months off from this site. Don't be so hard on yourself. We'll be alright.

Having been in the teaching profession but now working in a retirement village where covid has entered and effected many elders and created a short staffed issue I understand where you are coming from. I too needed to hear this, and we will get through it!

I had a poor credit which was largely due to identity theft, I needed a loan to finance my business but could not get one because my credit was not just good enough, after trying everything things went from bad to worse, the more I disputed the lower my credit score went. This continued till a Pal introduced me to Lanx Credit Solution. I explained my position and they assured me that they could help me put things in order by fixing my credit and increasing my score. They kept their words, I am still in awe. I now have a credit score of 782, all the negative items that bedeviled my credit were removed finally. It was good one.
