He was trapped in the coffee carafe and couldn't get out. I let him free and he jumped across the kitchen happy to be free. I'm now going to add one more little step to my coffee making process in the morning. Check for geckos in the carafe. :-)
The next thing I wanted to share is something that just makes my heart smile. One of my former students is now in 4th grade at NCA in Managua and is running for student council. I was on campus last week for a meeting and I happened to see this poster hanging on the wall.
What a sweet kid with a cool personality and an amazing opportunity to see him growing up and learning and eager to take on more responsibility. I talked with Kaleb later on that afternoon after he gave his student council speech. He said it went well but he is nervous as he waits for the vote on Monday.
As I sit here writing this I am filled with joy at the growth of this student. I can't help but think that God often looks at us the same way. I know He's been teaching me a lot lately and as change starts to become a reality in my life I can imagine God with the heart of a Teacher and Father grinning from ear to ear.
What is God teaching you? Can you see the areas of growth in your own life? Are you sharing it with others?
