The children were adorable in their favorite pajamas.
Even the teachers got to wear their pj's and eat pancakes. Greg laughed and asked me if I had enough gas in our car. He didn't want me to stop for gas on the way to work in my pajamas after all.
Five years ago I would have laughed if someone told me I'd be working in a classroom with three and four year old children. But the events in my life changed almost overnight and so I returned to the work force full time.
Only God could have orchestrated a job like this for me. A woman who always wanted children but couldn't have them. A woman who figured that part of her life was over.
But God never forgot my desire and He met my need just when I least expected it.
As I relish the fun days with the children and Heidi, I quietly thank God. I couldn't have predicted this.
I think of Psalm 37:4-5 (NIV)
Take delight in the Lord,
and He will give you the desires of your heart.
Commit your way to the Lord;
trust in Him and He will do this.
How thankful I am to trust in Him.
I continue to count those every day blessings.
