I'm a new soul, came into this strange world

     I was going to start out this post with the words, "I meant to..."  but the truth is, it's the night before school starts and I MEANT to DO a lot of things...put an extra basket of laundry away...pack up our "Give to Goodwill" stuff...post my to-do list and link it to Carmen's site.  I didn't even get THAT far...


     Tonight, I will tell you that Ohio has been selected to participate in The Country's  attempt at education reform... Race to the Top.  Basically, with a little bit of finagling...we will get a little bit of money.  


     Basically, this is the equivalent of forecasting rain for someone in the desert.  It makes me feel hopeful.  


     Honestly, school stresses me out...State Testing stresses me out.  Things like Indicators and making AYP and all kinds of other acronyms that we are supposed to make or meet or find or keep track of.  


     I was trying to find a Bible verse that would be fitting for the next upcoming months.  I googled the words "bible verse fear".  Which only seemed fitting, and I came up with this...or, um. God came up with this.    


So we say with confidence, "The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?" Hebrews 13:6  


My brain replaced the word "man" with "tests" 


and then I felt better.  


Love and using the word google as a verb, 
H.
