Trial Run....

So God worked things out (as He always does), and organized a 'trial run' of sorts for me.  After writing my 'rant' last week, I got a call about being a substitute teacher for a gal I used to teach with before I decided to stay home.  The gig would be 6 weeks, morning kindergarten and it is even the same school I taught in prior to 'retirement' (that's what Ryan calls it)!  How perfect is that?  Naturally there was a bazillion and one obstacles including CHILD CARE and some other random things.  The Lord worked them all out in a way that COMPLETELY confirmed that this opportunity was indeed from Him, and it was indeed right for me AND MY FAMILY.  What a blessing to have that peace.  I don't need any outside affirmation now that I know I am called to this, be it short-term, venture. I feel free from the desire to explain myself and seek approval of my friends.  I don't know what will come my way for next year, but I know that this opportunity will be an amazing trial run.  I can serve, seek the Lord, pray and make a far more educated decision about the next year! Thank you Lord for wisdom from You!

What a neat opportunity! I'm sure this will help answer a lot of questions as to what you might want to do next school year. I hope you enjoy your job. I'm sure you'll have a blast being back in the classroom.
