Will Work for Jesus MONDAY

I'm starting a new blog tradition - I'm excited about this!!!

On other blogs I've seen Monday themes for posts such as McFatty Monday (I love this one) or Miscellany Monday and so on...  Well, I'm gonna start a Monday theme!  Sadly, there is no alliteration invovled, but it's an important themed day nonethelss.

Will Work for Jesus Mondays

Colossians 3:23-24 Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward.
It is the Lord Christ you are serving.

Now I mentioned in my previous blog entry that I was going to take the above verse and put in my car and my classroom, and I was going to say it before I went into the school, during my planning, and during my lunch.  Well, I did it!  ((I sound like a two year old, and yes, I'm that proud!))

It made a huge difference in my day!  Praying this scripture put me at ease... It helped me keep an eye open and look for moments to minister to others.  And when stress walked in my classroom, I smiled and replied to it's demands, "I'll do the best I can!"  Because I'm serving the Lord :-D 

And that's what I did today - my best. In teaching, in conversing with others, and in planning.  Tomorrow is a teacher work day.  I'm planning on getting A LOT done, working and planning and grading for Jesus ;-)

I love God's word! 

Hope you all had a Happy Halloween!  Costumes and Candy!!!
