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

The Hodgepodge-iness of it all

Today was a hodgepodge of activities, including, but not limited to, running, napping, "teaching," visiting, dining, and reading.

It sounds like a lot, but trust me, it was a pretty relaxed schedule. It was probably too relaxed - I need to get going on those middle school curriculum maps.

One thing religion-related that I did manage to get done was a rough draft of a list of Saints we will focus on each month as a school community this upcoming school year. In that respect, I did learn a few new feast days and months this morning. We'll be hitting the mostly well-known ones this year, such as Francis of Assisi, John Bosco, Frances Xavier Cabrini, St. Vincent de Paul, St. Joseph, Mary, and a couple others. Maybe in future years I will be able to suggest more of the lesser known saints. (Or, we can just keep focusing on all the ones in October - seriously, how can there be so many great ones in one month?)

I suppose I should just start tomorrow with 6th grade and go from there - let's see how much I can organize and get done...

Mass is in a little bit - looks like it's about that time to get my daily dose of God.
