Teaching Tonight

So, the big night has arrived. Satan has been trying hard to keep me distracted from the task at hand. In about 5 hours I will be teaching the Women Encouraging Women class at church. I wish I could say I've spent my week preparing, but I've actually spent my week caring for my kids. Paris & Tripp have the flu. Paris has the worst of it. She actually had 105 temp last night! Not fun. Tripp seems to be doing better today. No fever so far. But, despite the sickness abounding in my home, I'm going to teach class tonight. Easy is coming home to watch the kids so I can go. He called earlier and said he wasn't feeling so good so it looks like he might be coming down with it. I think Satan really wanted me to bail, but it's not happening. I'm excited and nervous and mostly I just don't want to trip and fall or burp in the middle of my lesson. Say a prayer for me friends - it's a first step in a new part of the journey!

You will do great. I'm praying that I will be there. I'm going to wait and see how things are going at 6. Hope to see you there. Love you and don't worry you will do great!

I know you did WONDERFUL! Sorry your family is sick. I can totally relate. Mine still aren't healthy yet. I'm so proud of you for stepping out and doing what you are supposed to be doing.

Sarah, I know I already said this, but I want the rest of your blogger friends to know . . . when you taught Wednesday night it was as if you had been teaching for years. I watched you, my friend, walk in faith and step into your annointing with grace and style. I dare say I'm even a bit jealous! You told stories to help us remember and backed it all up with scripture. You taught with enthusiasm, passion, and with God's hand on you every moment. I am so very proud of you! Lara
