In talking about seasons this is a season in my life for healing and renewing. I think that God is getting ready to do some awesome things in regards to these things. I also think that God is constantly reminding me of how he wants to develop his love relationship with me everyday. I think it's great that no matter how things are going in your life or how bad things are that he is always there to hold you in his arms or to give you a gentle reminder that he will always love you. How do we deserve this love? I don't know but it's great to have such a love.
A couple of praise reports in my life that I am excited about: my hand is getting better, for the last month and a half or so my right hand has been so stiff in the morning that I couldn't open my hand without extreme pain. Well I have been getting prayer for healing every week and no more pain!! Woohoo!!! I don't even have to keep it warm at night now!
I also was asking God to bless me at school because this is the last semester before student teaching. I am taking Science, Social Studies, Literature, and doing interning. Well last semester I was so worn out by all the classes and interning that it was hard for me. Well God has blessed me with some awesome teachers including my intern teacher. I am so happy to be interning in a first grade classroom this semester it is great, the kids are so cute and I couldn't ask for anything better. Last week my intern teacher practically begged me to do student teaching with her so I just emailed the guy who coordinates student teaching to make my request, how exciting!! I won't have to leave these kids till the end of the year!!! Thank you Lord!

To the special people in my life,

People come into your life for a Reason, a Season, or a Lifetime. When you know which one it is for a person, you will know what to do for that person.

When someone is in your life for a REASON, it is usually to meet a need you have expressed. They have come to assist you through a difficulty, to provide you with guidance and support, to aid you physically, emotionally, or spiritually. They may seem like a Godsend, and they are! They are there for the reason you need them to be. Then, without any wrong doing on your part, or at an inconvenient time, this person will say or do something to bring the relationship to an end. Sometimes they die. Sometimes they walk away. Sometimes they act up and force you to take a stand. What we must realize is that our need has been met, our desire fulfilled, their work is done. The prayer you sent up has been answered, and now it is time to move on.

Some people come into your life for a SEASON, because your turn has come to share, grow, or learn. They bring you an experience of peace, or make you laugh. They may teach you something you have never done. They usually give you an unbelievable amount of joy. Believe it! It is real! But, only for a season.

LIFETIME relationships teach you lifetime lessons: things you must build upon in order to have a solid emotional foundation. Your job is to accept the lesson, love the person, and put what you have learned to use in all other relationships and areas of your life. It is said that love is blind but friendship is clairvoyant. Thank you for being a part of my life!
