He put up the tree and put the lights on it.
I then put the 'garland' and the ornaments on the tree.
I also decorated the fireplace mantle.
I have a collection of Santas and a garland through which hubby winds lights.
It makes for a bright display.
Here are a few of the Santas.
I had a tough time with my mouth this week.
My nerves got a bit frayed as my two freshmen Advanced English classes finished up their
To Kill a Mockingbird projects and presented them.
It's a three-part project: presentation, visual, and written.
There are three grades for a total of 300 points.
Much work is required from the students and me.
[Then the grading begins.]
The stress was palpable.
But it's always worth the work and stress--at least I think so.
The experience is one of educational growth
as well as a stretching exercise in responsibility and patience
for all of us.
I will show pictures and tell more about it next week.
But here's a verse I needed.
It works well for the end of the week and beginning of the weekend Psalm.
I SAID, I will take heed and guard my ways,
that I may sin not with my tongue;
I will muzzle my mouth as with a bridle . . .
And now, Lord, what do I wait for and expect?
My hope and expectation are in You.
Deliver me from all my transgressions;
make me not the scorn and reproach of the [self-confident] fool.
Psalm 39:1, 7, 8
And He has put a new song in my mouth,
a song of praise to our God.
Many shall see and fear (revere and worship)
and put their trust and confident reliance in the Lord.
Let all those that seek and require such as love Your salvation say continually,
The Lord be magnified!
Psalm 40:3, 16
Blessings to you all!
