It is the time that my alarm clock now hums every morning.  It's the time that my day begins and I pray to God, giving it all over to Him for the day.  It's not a time that makes this night owl/not-a-morning person gal happy, but it is a time that I choose to be happy and joyful.  It's the time that I remind myself....one day at a time.

I decided this year that I would make a conscious effort to take teaching one day at a time.  It's such a future-oriented, planning-ahead career.  I so easily get wrapped up in looking ahead and thinking of what's coming next, that I often don't truly cherish the day, or even the moment I am in.  I think this constant looking ahead has drained me in past years.  It has caused me to over-think and over analyze things way too much.  Although there is something to be said about planning and thinking ahead, it can get to a point of too much.

So this year...I'm taking it one day at a time.  One day at a time to cherish.  One day at a time to mold minds and hearts.  One day at a time to impact 21 little ones with God's love.

Pin It!


  1. Inspirational! Thanks for the reminder!

  2. I needed this right now. I was considering sitting down to prep even more for the week, instead I think I'll snuggle with Anthony. I have everything ready for tomorrow. Thanks girl!

  3. I am definitely dreading the 6:00 alarm tomorrow!! : ) I can't even remember the last time I got up that early...well probably the last day of school!
    I too get up to pray and read the word-I think it really helps.
    thanks for this reminder too! I always look and plan ahead-counting down the days or weeks until the next break or big event. It probably actually makes the year go by even slower! i am going to try to do this too!


Thanks for stopping by! Your support and insight encourage and inspire me! I would love to hear your thoughts.
