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.
