A Child's Language-Anon

Saturday, April 20, 2013

Here's a poem I've had for years... haven't shared it in awhile...sadly there's more truth here than I'd like to admit....

A Child's Language

I learned my language as a child.
I heard it spoken, I laughed, I smiled, I learned to talk, to chant, to sing.
Then all too soon I had to bring my language to school.
I soon learned language was a tool, you can't just talk, that is the rule.
I'm learning to read and also write, but talking has to wait till night.
I'm good at talking, as most kids are, but my language has only come so far.
Now, I seldom speak out loud;
At school. "Sh!" It's not allowed.

    That's the Victorian way...children should be seen and not heard. That's no longer the norm in the classrooms I'm familiar with.

Thanks for all the prayers, Chase came through his surgery just fine... his family is so thankful for all the prayers...

Here's a thought for today.

...Even if you've been deeply disappointed in the past,focus on the positive possibilities. For your future is what you choose to make it now.-Ralph Marston

Prayers...

Thursday, April 18, 2013

Requesting prayers for a former student of mine and her family, as her three month old son has the first of many surgeries this morning to begin repairing his cleft clip/palate. So thankful that doctors have the knowledge and ability to help this sweet baby boy!

Thanks for your prayers! Have a blessed day!

    Prayers for all who know the baby and who will be taking care of him.

    Yes! Prayers for the child and prayers for the surgeons who have learned to mend that defect in some newborns.

Simple, but true...

Wednesday, April 17, 2013

Learn from the past, live in the present, trust God for the future.

I heard this on a tv show last night and realized how simple, yet true it is...

Have a great day!!
