The Opportunity of a Lifetime

August 15, 2013 Today I learned why I am at Belton Elementary in this moment. There are many reasons but one was confirmed today. Don’t get all excited…I can’t reveal that reason.

August 12, 2013 “But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.” Isaiah 40:31 KJV Today is bittersweet. I’m excited for my new babies. But, I’m sad to leave my own […]
