I am pretty sure that every 5th Christian's favorite verse is Jeremiah 29:11. Legit, it is an awesome verse, but today it hit me in a fresh way but mostly also with the verses that surround it. Being stuck for the last year in Babylon awaiting what I believed to be promised to me, plans are beginning to be unveiled. It is sweet, beautiful, and much more than I had hoped for. PRAISE THE LORD! Thats about all I can say right now. I am overwhelmed. So check it y'all: Jeremiah 29:10-13.
10 This is what the LORD says: “When seventy years are completed for Babylon, I will come to you and fulfill my good promise to bring you back to this place.11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. 12 Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. 13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.
Fact: He knows what's up.
Also, for the record, I only have two more days left and I plan on rocking it wednesday night with some delicious lava rock chocolate cookies for my crew on Thursday. It is also consequently Skate City night! I tell you what, I am know roller derby, nor should I wear roller skates and party pants simultaneously (@ Kelly Watts), but I do love a good skate. If you were to make a list of all of the awesome perks to being an elementary school teacher, I would put Skate City near the top of the list. Along with: letters, laughter, Skippyjon Jones, the Pigeon, Valentines Day parties and being a celebrity whenever you walk down the hall or are spotted in the store. Notice my list DOES NOT include Halloween: definitely not a favorite. Halloween is chaos in Swahili. If you didn't know that, now you do. Wikipedia won't tell you that, but it is true.
