First day back to school today!

Faith went to school this morning for a field trip. It was her first time back in the building since mid-December, when she was sooo sick and hospitalized for a few days at Christmas.

As we entered the office, the receptionist had a huge grin and welcome/hello for her, followed by her History teacher (also the director of the college prep program in which she’s enrolled), then a friend in the 6th grade hallway gave her a hug and told her she’d missed her, then her Latin teacher, then her English/homeroom & Science teachers…

As we approached her homeroom, I noticed that the light was off and thought it was odd.  As she rounded the corner, someone flipped the switch and her entire homeroom of classmates shouted “Welcome back!!!”

I choked back tears.

Her teacher said they did that on their own …. and shushed her about it.

She’s still not in the clear and we continue to see specialists as we fight to reclaim her health; however, she has worked so hard to complete her schoolwork for this year and we are so proud of her for all she has accomplished, even in the face of such challenges!!

I am so thankful we were able to get her back before the end of the school year.  In my heart, I knew this would be important, rather than her worrying all summer about how the new year might go.

Thank you Lord, for this blessing!!!  Thank you for your faithfulness and always being bigger than our circumstances!

      This little light of mine…. God is so awesome and took this time to remind me that He alone is in control and will never forsake us… that He is bigger … MUCH bigger than any circumstance (or even a combination of many) that we face in life!
