And He said,
"Launch out into DEEP waters
and let down your nets for a catch..."
"But MASTER, we have toiled all night and have come up EMPTY."
BUT when they did what the MASTER had commanded, they caught a GREAT quantity of fish and their nets began to break....
I am launching off into deeper waters this school year with several of my courageous colleagues. Our comfort zone in teaching all elementary subjects in French to our petits élèves
has been "reconfigured" to accommodate the English language arts needs of our student population. We have toiled in preparation, but my net is EMPTY.
Indeed, shallow waters
are more familiar and PLEASANT
than the UNcertainty of the deep.
However, we are not alone
because there is a friend that carries EACH ONE OF US on our trajectory towards the DEEP hidden treasures of hard work in the sea of FAITH.
When we discover our treasures through the toil and the tears, the victory will one day be RETOLD by saying
from which dreams are made and passed on
and fears are put to rest.
And I know that I will have a productive and unforgettable school year because of thoughtful and creative friends like you...Thank you Penny for my sweet award!
