Disengaged...

Ok, I'm ready to go home...NOW!! Not that home holds some magical aura or an abundance of immediately known opportunities, but I'm ready for a CHANGE. I guess I've always been that way...seeing change as an exciting thing that brings new experiences, obstacles, joys, and opportunities. I feel content with life, with all of which God blesses me with, He is sooo good to me, but maybe He is calling me for something more....or maybe it's just my over-imaginative dreams. But either way He's also teaching me how to be PATIENT while I wait...but sometimes it's sooooo HARD to wait!!! I just wanna fling open the door and GO some place. Ok, ok weekend to the rescue...going on an extended trip to eastern Aomori...hoping that will get rid of some of my cabin fever....

And we pray this in order that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and may please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God, being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience, and joyfully giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in the kingdom of light. (Colossians 1:10-12)

In other weekly news...
My kids threw a fabulous year-end assembly for me at Miyoshi Elementary School. There was Fruit Basket mayhem...if you don't know this all favorite game, oh believe me I can teach you with my eyes closed. We also did some sort of dance jig with janken involved. Of course a song with band and many cute speeches by students. The Principle was so kind and wished to give a farewell speech in English. Well she read it to me beforehand to make sure it was intelligible. It was more or less...and I didn't have the heart to correct her, nor do I think it would have been so proper to do it since she is officially retiring this year!! Such a super duper school!!

And in still more exciting news...
For my last class in Minami Elementary School I subjected my 3rd Graders to Peanut Butter & Banana Sandwiches. It went over well...except for the fact I think all their mouths got plastered shut as they were eagerly trying to finish licking the mixing bowls and then proceeded onto eating their scrumptious sandwiches without any sort of beverage. But so goes the life of a 9 year old.
This boy was hard at it and I proceeded to call him "Peanut Butter Face" the rest of the class ^_^!!

These muchachos won't ever forget this day! They will always remember their Seerasan, and will even tell their children about the difference she made in their lives! How precious little children are!
Love, Mom
