In that hour the 5year olds cannot sit still for more than 5 minutes and oscillate between fighting for attention and disappearing into their dream world.
So what keeps me doing this crazy thing week after week?
It is the amazement at God's work of creation and His sovereign plan for each one of the children as I see them learn and develop.
It is the joy in being given the privilege of being part of this work that God is doing in their lives.
It is the recognition that I've been blessed beyond measure and the hope that they will come to know His love as well.
It is the grace of God alone.
I do this once a week for just an hour. But teachers do this everyday, plus marking, extra classes, admin work, co-curricular activities, counseling, the list goes on. You guys are amazing, and I hope that in the midst of it all, you do not lose sight of the bigger picture of God's perfect plan for each one (you included).
