It’s the first Friday of September. The kids have gone back to school, the high school graduates are now freshmen and recent graduates have now embarked on new careers.
I spoke with my daughter this morning and she had a not so great day yesterday. It was her third day teaching third graders and they were testing her.
As she told me of some of the shenanigans and I tried not to chuckle, my mind played flashbacks of her at that age and our many weekend trips to the library sharing time reading a good book.
I pictured her doing the same with her students and I kinda sorta patted myself on the back for playing a part in her decision to share her love of knowledge with others.
I even came up with a new acronym for TGIF:
- T – hank
- G – od
- I – ‘m
- F – ruitful!
That thought was swiftly followed by the following scripture:
“You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit … fruit that will last.” ~John 15:16a
As you go about your day, bear in mind the many opportunities presented to share your love of something with someone and thus plant a seed that might bear some fruit.
Have a wonderful day and an even greater weekend!
