Pictures from Texas and the Monday Prayer

 Sara Elizabeth with new daughter Abigail Elizabeth
My first-born with her second-born

 Abigail who is being called Abby
in her car seat on the way home
from the hospital

Then the 'granddaddy of all heart tuggers':
big brother Aaron (who will turn 2 March 11th)
with his baby sister, Abby
I know I'm the grandmother, but even if I weren't
I'd be saying "Ahhhhh! and How precious!"

If you want to see more, go to big brother and me

Busy weekend but a good one.

Tomorrow I get my yearly evaluation by the principal.
Please lift me up in prayer.

I chose my largest class, but they are the most fun
and they discuss well--sometimes too well
but it's never dull!

I'm showing the part in Remember the Titans
where the African-American coach takes the team that's racially divided
to the cemetery at Gettysburg.

Then we are reading Lincoln's "Gettysburg Address."
We will discuss both the part in the movie and the speech.
We are in the anti-slavery part of Unit 3 in the junior American lit book.

Here's the Monday prayer again from one of Stormy Omartian's books

Thank You, Lord, that I don't have to run away from trouble
and hide in fear.
I can instead come to You and ask You to go before me
and fight for me against all opposition.
I ask You to do that today.
Save me from the things I fear will harm me.
Thank You that You are my rear guard
and You have always got my back.
help me to trust in You
and not in my own strength when I am in trouble.

You shall not go out with haste, nor go by flight;
for the LORD will go before you,
and the God of Israel will be your rear guard.
Isaiah 52:12
