Deep Waters

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!
