Moving Forward

As each school year came to a close it was a bittersweet time for me. My students were excited for summer, but as an educator it was always hard for me to give up “My students” to a new teacher the following year. When I spent 7 hours a day, for 174 days with my students I grew to love and value each of them. So, when it rolls around to graduation time I am both happy and sad.

At this English center, which was owned and operated by Christians, we

The LORD, My Eternal Helper – Psalm 121

1 I lift up my eyes to the hills. From where does my help come? 2 My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth. 3 He will not let your foot be moved; he who keeps you will not slumber. 4 Behold, he who keeps Israel will neither slumber nor sleep. 5 The Lord is your keeper; the Lord is your shade on your right hand. 6 The sun shall not strike you by day, nor the moon by night. 7 The Lord will keep you from all evil; he will keep your life. 8 The Lord will keep your going out and your coming in from this time forth and forevermore. Situated in the Songs of Ascent, Psalm 121was one of the Scriptures that pilgrims would recite as they journeyed to Jerusalem to participate in the
