I'm listening!

On Monday I started working on memorizing the Ephesians 6: 13 verse about putting on the whole armor of God. I have not had great success in memorizing in the past, but this week I've made good progress doing the one thing that has worked. That is writing the verse longhand, over and over.
On that same Monday, as I was helping a third grade class with their reading lesson, a sweet little boy walked up to me and said "This is for you" and he handed me a cut out paper soldier (circa 1812) with a red uniform, boots, a tall hat and a sword. I put it on my bulletin board by my desk and find it is great encouragement.
Then today I was asked to substitute for the eigth grade history teacher. He said "It'll just be a video" because the regular class was scheduled to be something that needed his assistance ... looked like making oral presentations on the Holocaust. The substitute video had nothing to do with what they were studying. It was "Knights and Armor"!!
