I’m Up!

I’m up! I’m up and functional at 5:30 am on a Saturday morning. Not a regular work day but kind of. 

After working basketball concession and the tortilla toss event all evening on a Friday night, getting home around 9:30, not winding down until about 11:30 and falling into some kind of slumber after that, I’m back up with my ready writers at a UIL event.  Yes, I’m up!

There are so many teachers that do this kind of thing all the time. We get up early and stay at work late. We support our students at athletic events, band concerts, agricultural shows, scholastic competitions and much more.  Sometimes we are there coaching, sometimes we are there just because. We want our students to know they are cared for and supported.  We want them to succeed in whatever they are involved in.  

Some people say teachers have it so easy. We have a Monday through Friday job. (HA!) We have all the holidays off. (that IS nice, but not always true) We get the entire summer off. (Do you KNOW a teacher that truly does this???)

The summer months are nice because we do have more freedoms, but that’s after 36 weeks of an intense daily routine bombarded with other peoples’ children who come to us with all kinds of attitudes, moods, abilities and smells. I’m not griping about that, just stating it. The smells are sometimes objectionable, but for the most part, everything is all good.  Seriously, I love teaching. 

What is the point of this blog?  

Here ya go…

I want to remind everyone that there are teachers who really do go above and beyond their set job duties. They help,encourage and support their students. They teach not just reading,writing  and arithmetic.  They teach commitment, leadership, humbleness, putting others first and so much more! 

So, I’m up!!! And I love what I do and love being around teachers who feel the same way about their job as I do. 

I’M UP!!!

I am not beautiful…

I am not beautiful…

I am not beautiful due to the make-up I put on.  Eyeliner can’t make my eyes truly beam with love. 

I am not beautiful thanks to my favorite jeans or my cutest top.  They don’t prompt me to embrace other people with a warm hug.

I am not beautiful because I’ve lost a few pounds or the opposite.  Either way doesn’t remind me to love others. 

My beauty does not hinge on the fact that I drive a nice vehicle or have a ride at all.  I can still take gifts to others. 

My beauty does not rely on jewelry, perfume or accessories that may adorn this vessel the Lord has given me.  I can sparkle no matter what and show others they can sparkle as well.

My beauty is not comparable.  I am not the same beauty as you or the same as any human posed in a magazine.  Your beauty is just as incomparable!

————————————————–

I did not write this in order to bash make-up, jewelry or the want to smell good!  HAHAHA!  I love all those things.  I treat my face as a palette some days, because I am an artist!  Jewelry is fun and smelling good….well, that truly is one of my daily goals.  The main idea behind this is so I can remember that all those things don’t truly make up beauty.  My God created me.  He made me beautiful.  He made you beautiful.  If I keep my life centered in Him, beauty is in me, surrounds me and is one of the many things He gives me to enjoy.

Have you ever looked at another person (not with lust) and thought that is a beautiful person.  You don’t know their personality or heart.  You may know their name or other small details, but not really who they are.  God made that person and yes, they are beautiful, but that is not the entire beauty package!  We are wrapped in some crazy awesome stuff, but what’s on the inside is what makes us truly beautiful.

Skinny people who make fun of fat people here would say, yep, this writer is fat. (the word fat makes me sick… different blog)  She used that “WHAT’S ON THE INSIDE…” line.  Hahahaha!  That cracks me up every time I hear it.  I do admit, I have not felt “skinny” one time in my life although I have been at a weight where I should have. That is a whole different blog.

BACK TO BEAUTY…

That verse: “greater is the one in us than the one who’s in the world”         (1 John 4:4) keeps coming to my mind.  That is not a verse so we can be all arrogant and pompous about the fact that we have Jesus in our hearts.  That is not how we are supposed to be!  That verse is to remind us that we are who we are, because of Jesus.  JESUS is the reason we are beautiful.  HE is the reason we can find self-confidence and be proud of who we are–not prideful, but PROUD of you.  He is the reason we can overcome this world.  We can look passed the superficial and the beauty that is only skin deep.  We can see true beauty.  I love that about Jesus.  I love that about MY GOD!  I love that HE loves me no matter what I look like on the outside, because HE MADE ME BEAUTIFUL!
