It's not difficult for me to love my ("my") students. Each one of those 4th graders is funny, adorable, or both. They are full of life and ideas and stories to tell me. Sometimes I get caught off guard by how deep this love for them is growing, and I know it is only because of Jesus. I want to love these kids more intentionally. I want to never cease praying for them, even and especially when I'm walking around the classroom while they are doing independent work. We have a "moment of silence" after the pledge of allegiance everyday and you better believe my heart is not silent for those few seconds. They are all so precious and my heart's desire is that Jesus would draw each of them to Himself. Lord draw them close to you!
