Exodus 33:14 The Lord replied, “My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.”

It’s a Friday morning. After a restful eight hours of sleep last night, I’ve had a relaxing morning reading some scripture, sipping coffee, and going through my last box of books for my classroom next year. I’ve had 23 days of summer break and it has been so enjoyable. I didn’t realize how tired I had become after my first year of teaching until the first week of vacation. I was exhausted, but could not have asked for a better, more rewarding year.
