It's Me, Vern...

I haven't posted since AUGUST!!!!!

I began a new year of teaching. After 7 years in the classroom, this is my first official year. I have been enrolled in the state-mandated Beginnning Teachers' Academy. Translation: I have a boat -load of meetings I am required to attend. My job with students in self-contained behavior disorders has transformed into work with students in a self-contained mild-to-moderate mentally impaired classroom. Needless to say my days have filled.

However several very significant things have happened.

Come to the waters tells the incredible experience of baptizing two teens a few weeks ago. Friend Day was a big success. We have had a team of Partners come share in our breakfast service. We are pushing the 35 barrier hard now!

I had a hard fight against a nasty sinus infection last week that knowked me down for 5 days and nights. But thank the Lord, I'm up again.

I will certainly post more often now that I am finding my rhythm. The unexamined life is not worth living said Socrates. I feel the absence of this reflecting place.
