“And Lord, please let school come quickly!”

Nope, not my prayer…I’m loving the sleep, (most of the) sun, time with friends, leisurely reading, learning, and loving of the summer.  This was one of the sweet prayers from a wee one that ended Vacation Bible School today.  I completely identify with her feelings; I was the kid who was ready for school about this time each summer.

However, I am getting excited for school.  By the grace of God, I am anticipating a enjoying great year, more learning for me in a hopefully-less-painful way than last year, and getting to know my new kiddos.  Thanks to a couple good classes, I have some new tricks to try with my challenging kids as well as a better perspective on their issues.

So Lord, please don’t let school come too quickly…and prepare me for the good works you have in mind for me this year.
