The More You Know

So.  I'm not teaching this year.  Let's just get that out there.  I'm not going to spend a lot of time fretting about the last year.

You know, water under the bridge, and whatnot.  But there were some situations that were not dealt with in an honest/ethical manner by another person, and I just felt that was another "sign" that it was time to move on.  The only reason I'm telling you is so that you can kind of have a better understanding of the yuckiness of it all.

It was a situation that took a very long time to play out, and it was very hard.

But, I recently looked back at my Instagram account....back to December....until the end of the school year...and you know what? Based on the pictures...it looks like I had a life.  And I did.  Even when I was right in the thick of it...The Lord was still there.  Even though it didn't feel like it at the time.

You know...it's like...one day, you look back and you know.

Today, I'm praising Him for all those photos.

So, if you are going through something really, really stinky right now.  I want you to know that The Lord will be there...

He will give you reasons to celebrate.



He will give you peace.



Believe it or not, He will even give you moments of comfort & joy.



Did you know that this is Betsy The Kind? ^^^^  She was my college roommate and is like, my best friend ever.  On a scale of 1-10, I love her an 11 (to the tenth power squared).

(cupcakes from SugarPlums CupCakery...pretty much my favorite cupcakes in the whole world)! 

Love and hang in there,
H.

     I'm really excited to be linking up with Amy today as she hosts her first Monday Praise link-up!  I found Amy's blog through the SheReadsTruth Community.  Maybe this will take the sting out of your Monday!  :)

Holly,
Think back to what you did last Wednesday--you still have a life! Just a little different than teaching.

For some reason, I also love Betsy to an 11!

Love this, Holly! Thanks for linking up! I am a teacher, too... and I know too well the dealings with people who are none too ethical! I am praying that you have a way better time OUT of school than you would IN this year! (and it looks to me you had a pretty awesome life... no matter what was going on at the schoolhouse!).
