Flash forward again to my first years as an employed adult. As a first year teacher, you get really overwhelmed with your work. I mean, really overwhelmed. Every single teacher I've ever met has horror stories about that first year. And I'm no exception. So determined was I to be that A+ Teacher like all the mugs say, that I was working to the bone many hours a day, seven days a week.
So, as another school year gets ready to begin, I find myself starting to get charged up, working on school projects. I need to remind myself, as God had to remind the Hebrews, that the Sabbath day is meant to be holy. And I pray that I can remember that throughout this school year.
