Such a beautiful presentation don't you agree...simply divine for a garden tea party, now to figure out how to make the teapot!
I took advantage of tax free weekend last week for those back to school supplies! And of course updating our wardrobes! I had a tax free weekend shopping spree and got over $500 worth of books from the Salvation Army, for only $54. Amazing what people just give away... And then I hit the designer suit racks and added 2new suits, 2 new jackets and a 100% genuine leather portfolio briefcase for a computer, but it looks like a tote purse! Spent a grand total there of $49, net retail worth over $750... and donated to a Christian cause. Fashionista in me just won't go away!
I start back to Argosy August 29th, 2013! EWWWW! I am not looking forward to studying statistics again and my mixed methods dissertation....Lift me up in prayers as well to be able to manage and withstand the physical demands on my body.. I am a bit scared, as I have been on SS DBL for over a year now and am not sure how my body will react to the huge demand this career will have on me... I turn it over to God and I know He will sustain me. Have a blessed weekend!
AMAZING and AWESOME is OUR GOD! Last week, on Thursday I went on 2 interviews with DCPS and was extended an offer on the second interview and I am now the Reading Specialist and Staff Developer and member of ALT (Academic Leadership Team) at my high school, Phelps ACE SHS in NE DC. ACE(Architecture, Computer Technology & Engineering) is a magnet program wherein all students must have a minimum GPA of 2.5 for entry and maintain it. we service about 400 students who compete for the spots for enrollment with the entire DCPS district.
It is a brand new facility and absolutely gorgeous. Highly educated instructors and mentors. I am so blessed to have been brought on board the team there! I attended my first professional staff development and conference for DCPS on Wednesday and Friday a year long planning meeting with my Principal. Our theme will be Literacy is Our Legacy! A strong literacy focus across the content areas is being implemented and integrated in all grades and classrooms.
Many professional workshop days ahead in the next 2 weeks before students start back on the 26th. Where did our summer go? Saturday I had On Board training for New Hires, and this Wednesday & Thursday will be attending a 2 day workshop on district protocol and expectations for New Hires Teacher Trainings.
SO excited with how God has worked miracles in my life. Amazing how He can heal a broken heart, restore Faith and Hope ending in Joy with the Holy Spirit. As I walk in my Faith with the Lord, I give thanks and Glory to Him. All good things come to those who wait on the Lord's time and act accordingly to His will and behold the promises of His Kingdom.
We have free will and with that privilege comes choices and their consequences. Your life is what you make of it and how you walk in life through your Faith determines your eternal soul's resting place. He of little faith, has forgotten the word of God, abide by it and you will have eternal life...
A Joyful noise I make in all that I do. I share my laughter and Love of God with all. He that knows me, knows my heart and knows whereof I have risen. Where I was weak, my Faith and Trust and Hope in the Lord has been blessed with His Love and Grace in my life. All good things come to those who wait!
May your week be filled with Blessings and Prayers giving thanks to Jesus. Remember to take time to read your scriptures and grow in strength in your Faith as you walk in God's word.
Great is His Love for us...
