It's been a LONG weekend full of work, and the week ahead is sure to promise many opportunities to "develop character." Hahaha! Whenever I know I will face struggles during the week, I try to remember that suffering can lead to improved character if I embrace it in the right spirit.
My hope this week is to seek balance between the huge amount of school work that "needs" to be done and my family. I hope to be truly present for my students as well as my own children. I hope to make my brain "stop" it's constant thinking and instead focus on what is most important. I hope to show my children how to develop character through perseverance. Download the verse for the week, Romans 5:3-4, and remind yourself to rejoice in your trails that you may ultimately rejoice in HOPE.
