I have come to fall in love with teaching in Catholic schools. What are YOU in love with?...

"Nothing is more practical than finding God, that is, than falling in love in a quite absolute, final way. What you are in love with, what seizes your imagination, will affect everything. It will decide what will get you out of bed in the morning, what you will do with your evenings, how you will spend your weekends, what you read, who you know, what breaks your heart, and what amazes you with joy and gratitude. Fall in love, stay in love, and it will decide everything." - Pedro Arrupe

Two more days. For kids and teachers alike, you might as well tell us we have 2 weeks - that's what it feels like.

And I (for the most part) like school.

But the kiddos need a break from each other. (And they probably need a break from all the testing and projects we've been having them do this week.)

What's going to be the trick for me? Well, today I am going to focus on the Tenebrae service I will be attending at Church tonight. I believe knowing I will spend an evening of meditation, contemplation, music, readings, darkness, and light (all woven together in a beautiful and simple celebration) will help me keep my center today.

And what about tomorrow? Well, tomorrow I am heading home...after school of course.

Here we go...
