It was a little sad as my pastor is retiring. So this was his last Easter sermon. I will miss him. Despite being a member of a very large church, he was always available to talk and pray with me when I was in need. I will never forget the time when I called Pastor Dan during the week as I was going through a particularly rough time. He spoke with me and prayed for me. The following Sunday at the conclusion of the service, I was getting up to leave. Standing at the end of the pew with his arms open wide was my pastor. He hugged me and told me he was continuing to pray for me.
The school where I work is not a Christian school. We have children from many different backgrounds. But each one is special to Miss Debbie. I love each one of them and silently pray for them. Since I help them with their lunch, I get to see what their parents pack for them. Whenever a child has an orange cutie, they hold it up for me to see. All together we all say "cuties for my cuties".
Little Hilton was standing next to me as I was unpacking my things at my desk. She grabbed my cuties and held them up as the other children yelled "cuties for my cuties".
We had a special science class with Mrs. Baer. She taught the children about clouds, rain and condensation. They were fascinated. I love to watch them as they learn new things and new words. If only we could retain that love for learning no matter how old we get.
