This is a post from back in April, 2018 , but after a week full of tons and tons of students running in and out of my life on a daily basis and trying to make sure each child received everything they needed from me with a smile on my face, well I just needed to repost for me. Not only does this remind that I am a Child of God, but the students I love each day are also, and times like this week I need to be reminded that each student is loved and created by God. God Loves his children….
I read this in my devotions written by Lysa TerKeurst from Proverbs 31 ministries. I just added my name. As you read today replace my name with yours. You are a Child of God.
