Spring Break?

I need a Spring break so bad! Too bad we only get 2 days for Spring break, Good Friday and Easter Monday.  I am just so exhausted and these past two weeks have been pretty stressful.  All I want to do when  I come home is take a nap but I don't have time for a nap.  I've been working at school till almost 6 and then coming home to finish grading until 9 or so.  The good thing is that weeks go by pretty quickly for me.  That is one reason why I love being a teacher, you are constantly busy so there is never any time for boredom.  My students took a practice EOG and I am now working on making them packets to review with each day until we take the EOG.  I'm excited to see how they will do on the real EOG.  It's amazing how much of yourself you can invest in your students.  It is almost like they are your own kids because you want so badly for each one of them to succeed.
I've been doing good working out this week.  It has been so nice to go out and run in the beautiful weather. After running I try to sit down and pray outside.  The peacefulness of being outside is just an awesome feeling.  I am soon going to be getting a Y membership.  I went to a class yesterday with Dean's sister.  It was pretty fun and I could tell it would make me stronger.  Well I am about to fall asleep typing this so I am going to take a quick 30 minute nap!

John 3:16

Today is March 16th (3-16) so it's the perfect day to share John 3:16 with someone. 

 "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life."

Jesus Christ died to pay for all of our sins.
He was raised by God on the third day.
He was seen by more than 500 people after the resurrection.
40 days later, he ascended to heaven.
All who place their faith in Jesus will become children of God. 
What great news!

I took the Praxis yesterday so the stress of having to study for it is now over, at least hopefully if I passed it.  It was definitely the hardest test I have ever taken but I think I did alright. I won't know if I passed or not for 4 weeks but I am definitely not stressing over it.  I had to go to UNCG to take the test and just being on a college campus made me miss being in school.  I hope to go back to college and get my Master's degree in the next few years.  Until then, I'm probably going to look for a continuing education class I can take, especially during the Summer.
On another note, I've been going to Community Church North on Sunday's and I love it.  The music is so uplifting and so are the sermons.  Here is one of my favorite songs that they sing:
